Kennett Square Brick Patio

When GreenRoots Landscaping added hardscaping to this Kennett Square home, it took the backyard from a simple walkway to an ideal outdoor space. The large brick patio gives ample room for outdoor entertaining and the new fire pit is gorgeous and perfect for spending nights enjoying the outdoors! 


Before and afters are always a perfect way to show how adding hardscaping and masonry to your property can transform a space from a backyard, to an outdoor space worth inviting the friends over for.

This fire pit is the perfect gathering spot.


We added a sun shade which adds character and for the summer, the necessary shade for parties on hot days.

The natural stone steps coordinate perfectly with the fire pit.

We love using boxwoods for landscaping. They do not get too big and overwhelming and they are evergreen so they stay beautiful all year long.

‘Ivory Halo’ Dogwoods are another plant we love using in our landscape designs. In spring and summer it will be full with green and white leaves, and in late fall through winter it loses its leaves and the stems are a beautiful bright red color.
