5) Add entertainment. If you can see the stars from your patio, capitalize on that. Bring out the telescope. This will mean having at least a two foot square flat surface to set up the telescope on. Also, if you are not quite so scientific, putting the grill in an optimal place (where quests won't get ash blown on them) is certainly another form of entertainment. Or, if you are a musician, make sure you have enough outlets to support you and your friends' amps.
Your patio ideas will start to sparkle with your choice of plants. Traditional summer bedding plants often sold by garden centres for use in hanging baskets are candidates. Pelargoniums and standard trailing geraniums in searing red really punch out from a white background. Trailing fuchsias can look stunning. But don't stop there. Add some ferns, evergreens, grasses or even a selection of succulents. Feeling crazy? Then how about some cherry tomatoes or strawberries for some random planting punctuation!
Great patio ideas make for lots of enjoyable times around the barbecue with good friends. If you want to have a patio that everyone loves, you obviously have a lot of choices to make. If you make them carefully with a good vision, your patio may become one of your favorite places in your house.

In conjunction with a retaining stone wall, which will allow insects to flourish, putting bird feeders on your decking will encourage local birds to visit.
With online search engine, you don't even need to get out of the doorstep to do your initial research. Look at home improvement web sites to see what advice they offer. Supplement them with offline magazines and publications. The photos and videos will soon inspire you on the patio themes you can have.
Like all projects, start by putting a draft plan in place first before anything else. Set aside a budget for patio renovation. Estimate the time frame to get everything done. Most importantly, draw a layout plan of your existing patio. Take down the measurements of the structure, note especially those fixtures that are not easily movable. The layout plan will serve as a guide when you scout around for outdoor patio ideas. It helps you to focus on the types of design that work for a patio of similar structure and footage.
