Due to the fact a patio will be usually situated in close proximity to the house, the terrace styles should either enhance or contrast the existing material from the house in type and colour. Some concrete patios are left in the authentic grey color, although artificial additives are often used to change the color of the concrete to virtually any colour sought after. Many different styles for sculpting the sides and surface of fresh cement are also obtainable, to permit a for sturdy concrete patio and to appear and feel like individual tiles or stones.
Installing a patio is expensive but it is worth spending as much as you can afford as the patio is such an important part of the garden. The garden should be viewed as an outdoor room and if you are prepared to spend a little extra on getting it right it will be useable for most of the year. Allow around £120 per square metre as an all-in cost to get a contractor to lay your patio.
Most patios are sited immediately adjacent to the rear exit from the house because it is convenient - this may not be the best location for your patio. The back of the house may be shaded all day and therefore not ideal if you wish to like to sit in the sun. Consider a small terrace to the rear of the house with another seating area somewhere else in the garden which gets more sun. When designing a garden it’s a good idea to include more than one patio.. One patio can be sited so that it catches the last of the evening sun to provide a warm spot for an evening drink or meal. This makes the garden much more interesting and ensures that you are using more of the garden.
The goal of your patio design scheme is to create outdoor extension rooms which are unique, lovely and very useful for your planned family and social activities. It should project a warm, cozy, comfortable and friendly atmosphere which blends with the architecture and natural landscape ambiance of your home. Your design should equip the patio with amenities and accessories such as a lounge, pool, couch, dining sets, fireplace, patio umbrellas, awnings, bar/grill, night lighting, gazebos, etc. If your resources can manage, you can incorporate waterfalls, fountains, flower beds, arbors and pergolas so that you always have beautiful views while doing some meditation and relaxing activities. What your design should perfectly achieve is a patio which can serve as your own backyard leisure and retreat resort for your family to enjoy.
