As these solutions involve some complicated construction techniques, it is wise to consult with an experienced contractor who can advise on the various codes and regulations that will need to be met. Also, as these are raised platforms, structural issues must be taken in account. You do not want your deck or patio falling down.
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.
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.
A modern idea for decking is to make it black in color. There are new composite materials that can be stained by the manufacturer in a myriad of different colors. This staining will not fade and will not be affected by ultra violet light from the sun. It will maintain the as new appearance for many years and looks amazingly nice directly opposite an ultra-modern kitchen. Just imagine a white marble kitchen floor next to some beautiful jet-black decking - such a contrast will make any home's outside space look spectacular.
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.
Installing a roof type cover for your patio is a big commitment and of course much more expensive than buying an umbrella or awning. In many cities you will need to get a permit to build that roof patio cover as it is an extension of your house. Unfortunately, the government wants to be involved in everything we do so be sure to check that out before you spend thousands of dollars.
