Any time your house is built on a steep incline it is challenging to utilize the back yard. That type of situation can be one particular concern that could be solved with innovative patio ideas. One challenge may be to allow for easy access from the house to your patio as well as around other regions of the property.
Wrap up your paper research. It's time to go see the real world. A simple look around your neighborhood will open up your eyes but don't stop there. Public parks and pedestrian malls can inspire you too. Actually seeing how outdoor patio ideas are incorporated into real life designs will help concrete your own idea. You will see how the different types of patio furniture and ground can interact to give you the ambiance you want to create.
One great decorative patio idea that just about anyone can afford to do is add some plants to the area. This can be in the form of hanging plants, potted plants, or if you have the ground to do it, plants that are put right into the ground. If you like flowers, planting some flowers will instantly add some color and style to the area that wasn't there before. Decorative planters also add a nice touch, but if you are working on budget you can stick with just the dirt in the ground to create a great look!
Build a series of patio places that will be put to use almost all year around with the use of patio gazebos. A patio gazebo can create drama not to mention shelter from occasional rain showers and also the unhealthy rays of the sun. A slate pathway directing visitors to a patio gazebo with potted plants surrounding it provides a beautiful environment for open-air dining.
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.
3) Add some warmth. Extend the season for your patio by adding a fire pit or even an outdoor heater. These also add more light and create an immediate focal point -- everyone who steps out into your backyard will know immediately where the party is. The best outdoor fires are surrounded by thick walls that radiate heat, but even a metal trash can works if that is all you've got. Don't forget the marshmallows!
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.
