Turn your yard into a relaxing retreat by designing an outdoor room for style and comfort.
It is important to think about how your patio will be used before breaking ground. Will you be enjoying your morning coffee with your spouse? Will you be hosting large family barbecues? You should also consider what type of outdoor furniture you would like to use on the patio. Are you looking for a large dining table with many chairs? Would you like a conversation set with a loveseat? Or will a simple bistro set suffice? Selecting furniture first will help you better determine the right size, shape and layout for your patio.
When planning a new patio, scaled drawings and 3-D renderings are very helpful. These can help you visualize the space and make sure you are on the right track. If you’d like to get an even more realistic feel for the design of the new patio before getting started try a hose layout or marking the edges of the patio with chalk or paint. This allows you to actually walk around and determine if your plan is appropriate.
