Whether designing a patio for private relaxation or entertaining guests, there is an endless range of materials and specialty furnishings available for outdoor living spaces. Focal points such as fireplaces, fountains, rock gardens and built-in grills can transform a patio into an outdoor kitchen or dining room, complete with light fixtures and fans. Trellises, oversize planters and “living walls” can also be relied upon to maximize privacy, hide pool equipment or dampen noise.

Rock Shelter can lead you at every phase of the process, from design to construction, plant selection to maintenance, and more. Rock Shelter will help you breath new life into your outdoor spaces. For simpler projects such as mapping outdoor flooring patterns and walkways, we have expert masons and bricklayers who can work with any material that you like: flagstone, blue stone, slate, rock, poured or stamped concrete and brick. You can read more about our masonry services here.
Integrating wood elements is a perfect way to soften any hardscape, while adding warmth and character. Wood planter boxes, benches and storage covers make for a modern yet rustic accent to stone structures. We can also build in counters, sinks, stovetops, ovens and refrigeration.
Maybe you were hoping to build a walled-in organic vegetable garden as a transitional element between your finished patio and your perfectly manicured lawn. Maybe a pergola to shade your children from the summer sun. Have you always wanted custom cabana-style daybeds? A beautifully-lit koi pond?
Let us assure you that we have heard and done it all. We recently built a private boardwalk through a wooded property in order to create an elevated three-season running track.

Rock Shelter can also call in Westchester and Fairfield Counties’ most respected architects, as needed. We have worked with the best design professionals in the area, providing them with outdoor construction services. In addition to landscaping, outdoor construction is a longstanding specialty at Rock Shelter. We have more than fifty years of experience between our two principals alone, each of which has a fifty-year family history in the landscaping and outdoor construction trades, right here in the Tristate Area. While families in Europe and Asia have been enjoying custom patio spaces for centuries, interest in finished outdoor living spaces is just heating up here in the Northeast. Rock Shelter will turn your patio into a resort-quality oasis.
