Paver patios and walkways are clearly a preferred choice for many homeowners in Montgomery and Chester counties. They are more attractive than concrete, more affordable than natural stone and can greatly enhance and transform your backyard living area or walkway curb appeal.
Notice our title says ‘Paver Patio Certified Contractor. Whitehouse Landscaping has been paving outdoor landscapes for 18 years. We knew when we started that we wanted to become a Certified Paver Installer so that we could give our clients the confidence and expertise they expected when hiring a patio contractor to install their outdoor project. It’s just good business sense to be affiliated with national standards and guide specifications.
What is Certified Paver Installer Certification?
ICPI Certification (For contractor residential installation of interlocking concrete pavements). The ICPI Concrete Paver Installer Certification is the industry recognized program for professionals committed to industry guidelines for segmental concrete pavement installation. This trade association is the authority for concrete pavers and its certification program insures that its members have passed a training course and gained extensive professional experience.
Why is being a Certified Paver Installer Important?
Being nationally certified demonstrates a level of investment. When residents in Montgomery and Chester counties are considering a hardscape addition to their home, they are investing in a long-lasting interlocking concrete paver installation. Like any construction project, the quality of the finished job is highly dependent on the quality of the contractor doing the work.
Becoming a Certified Paver Installer demonstrates the following: having installed a minimum of 10,000 square feet of pavers, attending a 2-day intensive training course on industry best practices for installation of interlocking pavers, passing a written certification exam and completing continuing education requirements to stay on top of industry best practices.

Patio and Walkway Design Matters
Why settle for an installation that simply is square or rectangle when a good designer can incorporate natural stone and play with shapes and edging that can give your paver installation that ‘wow’ factor in addition to functionality.
Whitehouse Landscaping is well known for its 3D landscape designs. You can see some of these designs that have been installed in the video Whitehouse Landscaping Dream Property. We understand how helpful it is to homeowners to preview it as if they are actually seeing it before its even built. They see the plants, elements, hardscaping, and structures. The fire place, water feature, retaining wall…the list goes on and on.
