Five Ways to Update Your Patio

Spruce Up Your Patio With These Improvements

Summer may be on the way out, but that doesn’t mean you should be ignoring the outdoors! A patio is the centerpiece of any yard within which one can be found, and for good reason. There’s virtually no limit to the customizable ideas you can apply to your patio. Today, let’s talk about some of the ideas available to aspiring patio owners, or those who are looking to spruce up what they’ve already got.

    1. Go multi-level. By adding multiple levels to your patio, you can better adapt to hilly terrain and you create a beautiful tiered look that simply can’t be matched by traditional flat patios.


    1. Build in seating. Adding stonework benches to the rim or railing of the patio makes for ready-made seating, perfect for warm summer evenings spent outdoors with family and friends. It also looks lovely and breaks up otherwise flat spaces.


    1. Add a garden. Who doesn’t like a garden? A garden space in your patio makes for a refreshing breath of air and creates a pleasing alternation between lawn, patio, and garden space. A bit of planning can ensure that the garden blooms with flowers throughout the growing seasons.


    1. Install a fire pit. There’s nothing quite as cozy as a warm fire on an autumn night. Get more use out of your patio with a fire pit in the middle. Doubles as a bbq if you’re especially motivated.


    1. Put a roof on it. There’s something comforting about sitting outdoors under a roof while a gentle spring rain descends around you. Adding a roof maximizes your patio experience by providing shelter from the worst of the elements while still opening you up to that genuine outdoorsy atmosphere. Include a hammock for an even more relaxing experience.
