Patios. Tuesday , August 07th , 2018 - 16:55:32 PM
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.
It seems that everywhere I go lately, I see patios: houses, offices, hospitals, restaurants, and spas. You name it, I've seen it there. They are becoming increasingly popular amongst South African gardens of all kinds and everyone is jumping at the opportunity to have it built onto their homes.
When choosing from these hundreds of patio ideas it is vital of course to take your lifestyle, and that of your family, into account. People use their patios for many different purposes, from formal entertaining to simply relaxing. It is important to consider what the primary purpose of the patio will be, and to tailor your patio ideas to that use.
Installing a roof type cover for your patio is a big commitment and of course much more expensive than buying an umbrella or awning. In many cities you will need to get a permit to build that roof patio cover as it is an extension of your house. Unfortunately, the government wants to be involved in everything we do so be sure to check that out before you spend thousands of dollars.
4) Add night bloomers. There are night-blooming plants that can be surprisingly effective for a nighttime garden. Many vines like moonflower bloom only at night, and the smell of honeysuckle in the evening is divine. Also consider plants that may not look amazing, but smell amazing. Sticking some herbs in between flagstones can be effective -- as people walk on them, the smell is delicious.
You have a large variety of patio designs and themes you can pick if you want that great patio. Do you have a pool or a nice garden? If you do, the patio ideas you come up with may revolve around them. Everything must look good together so you must consider the patios surroundings when you settle on a patio design.
