Since we are a local business based out of Barrington and Palatine, we will promptly give you a call to schedule a time for an estimate.

Whatever your goals are, we will help put together a proposal that is focused on what your vision is, not ours.

Custom Landscaping Barrington IL – Patio Designs
Adding a new paver patio to your home is a great low-maintenance option for expanding your outdoor living space. There are many landscapers in the Barrington area that build a few patios each year, but our crews at Platinum Patio & Pavers are unique in that they specialize in building patios every day of the year. By focusing only on hardscaping projects, our crews easily outperform other Barrington landscapers and ensure that our patio projects are built to last decades.
Homes in the Barrington area typically require custom patio designs in order to maximize the functionality of the unique outdoor living spaces. Our designers and crews have worked in the Barrington area for decades, and are experts at creating a truly custom “Barrington Patio”. At Platinum Patio & Pavers we offer a free patio design service and always include a 3D rendering of the project (along with each estimate). We spend extra time with our clients on the front end of any hardscaping project, often going through multiple design iterations in order to ensure complete client satisfaction.
During the estimate process, our expert designers will ask a variety of questions to gain a better understanding of each customer’s unique design preferences, while also uncovering a list of short and long-term goals for the landscaping project. Once we have gained a better understanding of the overall priorities for a patio project, our designers will incorporate a variety of best-in-class design techniques to truly take the project to the next level. Platinum Patio & Pavers always focus on maximizing the functionality and long-term ROI for any hardscaping project that we install.
There are many landscapers in the Barrington area that can build you a traditional patio that may look good for a few years, but it takes a hardscaping specialist to design and build a patio that will look great for decades to come!
Patio Materials That Increase Durability & Reduce Maintenance
Our design team will simplify the materials selection process based on your design preferences, but will always focus on recommending products that increase durability, reduce maintenance and maximize the value for your new paver patio.
At Platinum Patio & Pavers we specialize in using only the best materials from Unilock & Belgard, which we have found to be the Gold Standard for pavers installed in the Midwest. Both Unilock and Belgard manufacture pavers with a new “face mix” technology (simply put, a very thick top layer of color) that is 4x – 6x the strength of poured concrete. By using these premium “face mix” paver products, we can ensure that all patios that we install will retain their color through the harsh swings of Midwestern summers and winters.
At Platinum Patio & Pavers we also specialize in using larger format / modern paver designs, as they help further reduce any required patio maintenance. The larger pavers that we install weigh significantly more than the traditional tiny brick pavers (that many other Barrington landscapers still use). We have found that the increased weight of the larger format pavers helps eliminate paver shifting over time, and are much easier to clean with a hose or a broom (due to a smaller number of cracks on the patio surface).
Here is a list of some of the favorite paver products that we install:
- Unilock Beacon Hill Flagstone
- Unilock Beacon Hill Smooth
- Unilock Treo Smooth (Can Be Made Permeable)
- Unilock Bristol Valley
- Unilock Umbriano
- Belgard Dimensions
- Belgard Origins
Unilock BeaconHill Flagstone- Bavarian Blend
Unilock Bristol Valley-Pavers-Steel Mountain
We Go Above & Beyond With Our Approach to Water Maintenance
Historically, Barrington Landscapers have built their patio bases out of ‘dirty’ CA-6 gravel with an inch of sand bedding over the top. Extensive research over the past 20 years has experts now convinced that this traditional method for building a patio base retains too much water and drastically affects the longevity of a project, especially in a freeze/thaw cycle. Unilock, Belgard, and industry professionals now all recommend that Midwestern patio projects should use an open-grade base design that leverages ‘clear’ CA-7 gravel with an inch of CA-16 ‘chips’ over the top. This base design was traditionally reserved only for ‘permeable’ paver installations but has been proven to add tremendous benefits to ‘non-permeable’ installations as well. Unfortunately, many contractors and landscapers are not willing to adapt to these new methods and are still building their bases with outdated techniques.
From our beginning, Platinum Patio & Pavers has made it a priority to maximize the longevity of any project we work on by doing the little things right. Our extreme focus on water maintenance practices, open-grade base designs, and a focus on proper base compaction ensures that our customers can enjoy their new outdoor living spaces for many decades into the future. We take pride in putting extra effort into the base, even though the majority of customers will not fully appreciate the impact that this effort will have until many years down the road.
Advantages Of Using An Open-Grade ‘Permeable’ Base Design:
The materials used in our bases yield better drainage performance, while still providing sufficient load-bearing capacity. Research has shown that open-grade based designs have the following advantages:
- The base is free draining, which eliminates water sitting just below the surface of the paver, which further prevents freezing and shifting beneath the pavers
- The clear gravel stone makes it hard for roots to thrive and helps reduce weed growth
- The stone bedding layer is ideal for raised steps & patios because it eliminates sand washout
- These base materials can be installed during inclement weather, which helps keep projects on schedule
We Prioritize Innovation & Install Perma Edge Paver Restraint
For decades contractors and landscapers have worked tirelessly to cut and place their pavers to perfection, only to use a standard plastic edge landscaping restraint that was destined to fail. Many in the industry recognize that plastic edging tends to be the weakest link in the chain, but continue to use this method due to their inability to adapt to change. At Platinum Patio & Pavers, we quickly adapt to innovation and have switched to using a new technology called Perma Edge Paver Restraint to further maximize the longevity of our projects.
Perma Edge was invented by landscapers who were frustrated by paver edge separation and failure. Perma Edge is a mortar-like product that is 700% more flexible than concrete and 40% more permeable. Perma Edge will float and flex with the sub-base, making it the ideal edging to withstand the Midwestern freeze/thaw cycle. Bottom line, no more failed edges.
Advantages Of Using Perma Edge Paver Restraint
It’s not all about Strength. It’s not all about Flexibility. It’s not all about Permeability. The perfect combination of the three (strength, flexibility and permeability) is what makes Perma Paver Edging the best choice in paver edge restraints:
- Perma Paver Edging is designed to float and flex with the sub-base and not work independently like standard edging and spikes.
- A proprietary blend of additives creates a permeable edge that is designed to let water and moisture flow through and not bust in freezing conditions.
- Perma Paver Edging reduces the chance of separation if cracking occurs (using a special blend of poly fibers)
- Non-porous aggregates help alleviate any moisture contained in the edge.
We Future Proof Your Long-Term Outdoor Living Goals
Some of our customers have long-term goals of fully transforming their outdoor living spaces into a resort-like setting, but they may not have the necessary budget to obtain all of their dream features in a single phase of work. At Platinum Patio & Pavers, we work within a customer”s budget to plan out a phased approach towards achieving these long-term goals. It is nearly impossible to add on a fire pit or outdoor kitchen without first properly planning for these features in the initial design, and we often install the necessary trenched gas or electrical lines while building the patio base to ensure these features can be easily added at a later date. Through our transparent pricing and forward-thinking phased approach, we can work hand in hand with our customers to ensure their long term landscaping goals can be achieved. At the end of the day, our focus is to build long term relationships with our customers so that they only look to us for their future outdoor living needs.
