Every landscape should be designed around the way your family plans on using the outdoor space. A well-designed patio with added comforts can be your family’s favorite part of your home. Groundshog Lawn and Landscape has been creating beautiful, practical and affordable patios for customers in Catonsville, Arbutus, Ellicott City, and Baltimore, Maryland since 1998.

If you’re considering installing a new patio, or upgrading an existing patio, Groundshog Lawn and Landscape will assess your property and offer you a range of options to choose from.

Materials for Patio Construction

The color, shape and texture of the materials used in patio construction have a dramatic impact on the look and feel of the design. We can show you a range of options to consider, and help you weigh factors like durability, maintenance and cleaning demands, and weathering.

Patio Pavers

Available in every shape, color and texture you can imagine, patio pavers or paver stones are among the most popular choices for patio construction today. Patios in every price range can be built using patio pavers, for an elegant, yet affordable result.


The Old World look of brick creates a unique atmosphere on any patio. Brick is prone to retaining moisture, which can result in cracking in freezing weather or moss growth in shady areas. Proper maintenance of a brick patio is essential.


Nothing beats the natural look of genuine stone. Limestone, slate and flagstone are just some of the options we can use to create a rustic yet welcoming stone patio. Natural stone is typically higher priced than patio pavers, and requires additional labor to install, but the results are worth the added cost.

Patio Styles

The Living Room style patio is among the most popular patio styles we install. With comfortable furniture, an overhead shade structure, and built in seating, it’s easy to see why an outdoor living room is such a popular choice. Living Room style patios usually require a large space.

If dining outdoors is important to you, we can design an outdoor dining patio or a smaller bistro patio to entertain your guests. A dining patio will typically hold enough space for a full table and chairs, with room for a grill, while the smaller bistro patio is designed to fit just a small table or breakfast nook.

A sundeck patio is designed to be a perfect relaxation spot, with comfortable reclining chairs or chaise lounges. As the name suggests, this style of patio is usually situated with optimal sunlight, near the property’s best view.
