From Dated To Dynamic, This Outdoor Space Is Uniquely Stunning In Every Direction
When we arrived at this well-seasoned family home in the Highlands of the Crystal Falls neighborhood inside Leander, Texas, we needed to put on our proverbial thinking caps to design a plan that would resurrect this backyard and bring it to new, vibrant life.
Originally, there was a small existing rear covered porch on an existing slab. Unfortunately, it wasn’t well done and was showing the rigors of time. It had cracks, breaks, and a multitude of imperfections.
When In Doubt, Tear It Out
Rather than try to remedy a host of sins, our best course of action was to carefully remove the aged covered patio system that was there and start fresh.
Our refreshed design resulted in a gorgeous new concrete patio with a TPC overlay in a rich and fluid Roman Slate pattern in a blend of soft beiges, corals, and cocoa.
We built this new concrete patio around the old original slab which resulted in a whole new patio system.
Archadeck of Austin specializes in decorative concrete patios. Limitless options are only the beginning. We offer multiple different decorative concrete finishes: Stamp, textured, acid stains, vertical stamps, overlays, countertops, and metallic products, for outdoor living areas.
These can all be produced with different color palettes, to achieve amazing results that reflect your unique personal style preferences. Among our claims to outdoor living space fame is that we are the masters in concrete patio stamping.
How To Throw Shade In The Best Way Possible
With our outdoor living design projects, throwing shade is 180º from its contemporary use of the word in today’s vernacular.
Rather than cast negative sentiments and dispersions, our kind of shade is the good one. Our shade from covered patios protects and provides comfort from elements of nature that interfere with outdoor living luxury.
To cover the new patio, we built a gable roof that extends 5 feet past the side of the house. Of notable interest is that there are no posts on any house walls so it ties seamlessly into the original home.
Notice how beautiful the covered patio roof interior is, made warm, rich, and elegant with a Synergy Wood ceiling.

Our recent covered patio and pergola addition in Leander, TX, proves that a space doesn’t have to be large to have a BIG impact
I think, often times, when a client looks to us to improve their outdoor living space or establish a new one, the assumption is the project has to be large in order to be effective. This is certainly not the case. A good outdoor living space design should not only speak to the scale of your existing home and landscape, it should also speak to the function you wish to carry out within the space as well as your budget.
Here at Archadeck of Austin our goal is to provide you with the most value through an outdoor living space that is customized to fit your specific needs. Not a cookie-cutter duplication or design. One of our most recent projects in Leander, TX, serves as the perfect example of an outdoor space that delivers based on functionality and keeping in scale with the architecture of the existing home rather than sheer size.
When we first met with the homeowners to discuss their anticipated design, their only outdoor living space consisted of a small concrete builder-grade concrete patio. The homeowners wanted a space that was more conducive to the way they wanted to live outdoors. The patio has also been plumbed for the addition of a sink which influenced their desire to make sure their new space would include an outdoor sink.
Our completed design enhances the entire aesthetic and function of the backyard of this home. The new outdoor living space includes a gable roofed patio cover and freestanding pergola. To accommodate the needs of the client, Archadeck of Austin extended the existing patio with a curved orientation and added brick columns to match the masonry of the existing home. Cedar posts were used to support the roofed structures in unison with the brick columns. The pergola is supported by the roof extension of the covered patio portion of the design.
The interior ceiling of the patio cover features beautiful T1-11 with exposed rafters stained to add rustic flair to the area. An outdoor sink was installed, much to the owners pleasure, and this area includes a serving island and counterspace. Take a look at the before and after images of the transformation of this backyard beyond builder grade:
