Patios. Sunday , April 22nd , 2018 - 14:10:16 PM
So if most of the time you have to spend in your patio is going to be at night, it only makes sense to design the patio so its a great place to be at night. This means you'll do things a bit differently than if you were designing it for the day, though almost all of these ideas work perfectly well for daytime use.
Patios can be made from many different types of materials. Increasingly popular is cast concrete. When polished this leaves a super-smooth surface that maintains its heat in the colder evening periods and allows the owner to walk about in bare feet in comfort. This concrete can be stained to match any color choice and this permeates the entire thickness of the concrete and so never wears out.
A good twist for a patio is to make it out of cobble stones. Small gaps can be left in these to allow room for planting and this will lead to a more natural appearance which will definitely suitable for a more traditional property.
Creative patio ideas will come flooding to you. Just think of the different elements you can arrange to suit your garden designer's eye. First you can decide on the size of Spanish Rings to fit your flower pots - these are currently available to hold small, medium or large pots that hold pots up to a top rim-to-rim diameter of 8\" or 20cm. You can use either plastic or clay/terracotta pots or even conical baskets that will 'sit' either higher or lower in the Ring depending on the flare of the pot or basket.
After you have found the perfect patio idea and built the perfect patio it is important that the furnishings and accessories you choose provide a consistent overall look and feel. There are as many different kinds of patio furniture as there are kinds of patios, and it is important to choose the furniture that best meets your needs. Of course there are a number of things all patio furniture and accessories should have in common, including of course durability and weather resistance. Fortunately there are a number of excellent brands of patio furniture designed to stand up to the rigors of outdoor use while still looking its very best.
It seems that everywhere I go lately, I see patios: houses, offices, hospitals, restaurants, and spas. You name it, I've seen it there. They are becoming increasingly popular amongst South African gardens of all kinds and everyone is jumping at the opportunity to have it built onto their homes.
