eagle pay before after J.T. Hale of Atlantis Patios & Outdoor Lighting was recently name a “Hardscape Hero” by Eagle Bay Hardscape Products. His winning project is a patio, measuring approximately 1100 square feet, featuring a double seating wall with a backrest, tall Bookend columns with a wood-burning fire pit. The seating wall and columns have lighting built into them as well as additional landscape lighting around exterior of patio field.

A family-owned business, Eagle Bay works with a network of authorized dealers throughout the Mid-Atlantic region to provide some the best hardscape products available on the market today. Each month they pick one winner to be named as the Hardscape Hero.

When JT first stared building patios, he did not imagine it would turn into a business. However, he discovered that he truly enjoyed the work, and demand for his work kept growing. “I really  like being able to design and build something that I can be proud of when I finish,” states JT. He has now been in the Hardscaping business for three years.

Atlantis Patios & Outdoor Lighting specializes in transforming residential outdoor living spaces with decorative walls, landings and steps, fire pits, and columns. JT and his team work all over Hampton Roads and surrounding areas.

“There are lots of benefits to doing paver projects in your home. Outdoor living spaces can totally change a home. Whether it’s a patio, or just a functional walkway or driveway, it can improve the value of your home,  and give you a relatively maintenance free area for many years to enjoy”, JT advises.

To ensure that his customers are satisfied, JT keeps all clients informed, and strives to make their experience an enjoyable one.

“It can be an intimidating task for a homeowner trying to select the right contractor. I really want to do good work, and am always on the job making sure everything goes smooth and paying attention to the details.  Most of all, I do quality work, and my clients are happy and proud of their new patios,” states JT.

His recent award for “Hardscape Hero” came from a patio JT designed & built in Richmond, VA. The homeowner initially didn’t have a vision in mind, but thanks to JT’s skill and experience, he was able to provided the client with a handful of options for design, layout, materials, and features. Together they came up with a plan that suited the client’s needs. The “Before and After” photos really tell the story for themselves.
