Patios. Sunday , June 10th , 2018 - 10:41:49 AM
If you have a sloping garden or back yard, much of this ground can be wasted - there is not a lot you can usefully do with that space - some ideas to utilize it can be to either build a raised deck or a retaining wall and construct a flat patio space.
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.
Most of you will want to do some serious barbequing on your patio and some go as far as installing complete outdoor kitchens. Once again, before you spend that kind of money make sure you have all the appropriate permits. Unless you are a serious do-it-yourself type person, you will probably want to consult a professional about making that kind of commitment. You may also want to consider building a grill island and these can become quite expensive.
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.
One last patio idea to add to all your patio ideas. It's a hot summer's night (we wish!) and you're sipping a glass of something chilled. On the wall you've given some plants the night off. Instead you've replace the 'planted' pot with an empty one. Added a small saucer to the bottom to block the drainage hole and placed a citronella candle on a bed of sand. The flickering glow of the candle dances over the walls and keeps those blasted midges away - all at the same time.
There are many different kinds of material to consider when looking for patio ideas. The most important elements of the patio would be the colours, textures and designs used: if this works, the patio could be bare and still look inviting and comfortable. Cobbles, flagstone, tiles and cladding are all different ideas to look at, just remember to first look at their qualities before making a decision. Compare their durability, looks, textures, colours and strength.
