Patios. Monday , May 14th , 2018 - 10:51:08 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.
Unless you've won the lottery recently, or you are one of those lucky people who get to work at home, most of your time during the day is probably spent at work. Even on weekends, most of us have so many errands and events to get to that we do not spend a lot of time lolling around.
Sick of your old worn out patio? Want to refurbish it? You're in luck. Outdoor patio ideas are everywhere. There are actually way too many options to build and decorate your patio. So invest the time to design your ideal patio. It will be well worth your efforts when you have one the way you like it.
Entry patio ideas which include delivering a screen for the yard from the neighborhood can help with privacy issues. Seek out the aid of any nearby nursery or gardener in deciding upon the correct type of trees that will grow to encompass the space. One more suggestion is to install a sunken patio area that will allow it to be hard for a passerby to view.
1) Light the way. The most basic part of the night patio is light. White Christmas string lights are a great solution, and there are also lots of unusual string lights, or bistro lights if you want something different. Don't forget candles, either, though you'll need tall candle holders to protect them from even a bit of breeze. You do not need so much light that you can read out on the patio, but you do want to be able to see well enough to recognize people, and to make sure your visitors can see where to walk safely. If your patio is at the end of a walkway, that means investing in some good solar path lights.
2) Create a gathering area. If you have the money, its nice to build a pergola, or even set up a simple outdoor canopy. But if you can't afford that, just gather a bunch of chairs together. Get some chairs that serve as side tables, too, and possibly a little table.
