Patios. Wednesday , December 19th , 2018 - 06:28:19 AM
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.
A good twist for a patio is to make it out of cobble stones. Small gaps can be left in these to allow room for planting and this will lead to a more natural appearance which will definitely suitable for a more traditional property.
Both decking and patios allow a beautiful BBQ corner to be built - there is nothing better than to have an outside grill in the summer months and some people even continue to cook outside in the winter months.
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.
A modern idea for decking is to make it black in color. There are new composite materials that can be stained by the manufacturer in a myriad of different colors. This staining will not fade and will not be affected by ultra violet light from the sun. It will maintain the as new appearance for many years and looks amazingly nice directly opposite an ultra-modern kitchen. Just imagine a white marble kitchen floor next to some beautiful jet-black decking - such a contrast will make any home's outside space look spectacular.
Before you get to do the fun part of the project, you need to coordinate and plan your patio project properly. This is a structural project, so you will need a designer or planner to assist you by drawing up the ideas and design that you want. This design needs to show the location and exact measurements of the patio so you can buy the right material in the right sizes and quantities. Only when you are one hundred percent satisfied with your design, can you move on to the shopping.
