Patios. Thursday , November 08th , 2018 - 10:17:53 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.
Some more cool ideas for your summer patio include incorporating a fountain or waterfall with your patio design. The sound of running water is always very relaxing and this type of addition to a patio is sure to take it to the next level. In addition to adding that feeling of tranquility, a fountain or waterfall will add value to your home's price when you decide to sell.
There are of course many different patio ideas for homeowners to choose from, and not every patio will be the right choice for every homeowner. After all, part of the beauty of a well designed patio is the fact that it is a personal reflection of the taste, style, creativity and originality of the man or woman who installs it. There is nothing quite as great as installing a patio for increasing your living space without the expense and hassle or building an additional room or home extension.
If you need patio ideas that involve some sort of covering, you'll have plenty to choose from. Traditional roofs cover many patios, some are more of an awning style, and others still have no real roof, instead they choose seating that has an umbrella that will provide protection from the elements. These patio ideas can be big or small, and can be adapted to just about any space. Awnings can be detachable or permanent, and can create a real extension of your home.
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.
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!
