Your family will spend a lot of time on your patio, entertaining and relaxing. It only makes sense to look into patio designs that will reflect your tastes and lifestyle.
Patio materials are key. Choose something that not only matches the surroundings and size, but works with how you will use the patio. Opt for durability and comfort based on when you will hang out in the backyard.Flagstone is charming and rugged for an earthy, traditional feel. Stamped concrete or geometrical pavers work well in a contemporary setting. Large pavers or stones suit the balance and open feel of a Japanese garden.
Shapes add atmosphere. Sharp corners often give the patio a more modern look, while rounded curves can fit any style of landscape. Consider creating levels or distinct spaces by mixing up shapes – an octagon within a rectangle for example.
Patio designs are often very personal and should be well thought out. You’ll be better able to relax and enjoy a space designed perfectly for your family.
