Patios. Thursday , November 08th , 2018 - 12:30:28 PM
Your patio ideas will start to sparkle with your choice of plants. Traditional summer bedding plants often sold by garden centres for use in hanging baskets are candidates. Pelargoniums and standard trailing geraniums in searing red really punch out from a white background. Trailing fuchsias can look stunning. But don't stop there. Add some ferns, evergreens, grasses or even a selection of succulents. Feeling crazy? Then how about some cherry tomatoes or strawberries for some random planting punctuation!
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.
What type of weather you have is also important as the patio must be made out of something that is durable for the conditions. If you live in a place where there is either extreme cold or hot weather, you may want to consider covering and protecting your new patio as much as possible. It is amazing how much damage both hot and cold weather can do to rock and almost any other material you may choose to make your patio design idea out of.
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.
Patios can be made from many different types of materials. Increasingly popular is cast concrete. When polished this leaves a super-smooth surface that maintains its heat in the colder evening periods and allows the owner to walk about in bare feet in comfort. This concrete can be stained to match any color choice and this permeates the entire thickness of the concrete and so never wears out.
Planning patio terraces along the slope will be able to increase the amount of usable areas.
