Where do great patio design ideas come from? You might see patio designs on TV or get garden design ideas from a garden tour.

Outdoor patios can be attached to a house, or detached. They are often designed and oriented with the landscape. Patios are versatile: they can take on any shape and be built with various materials, like concrete, pavers, stone, tile, brick or gravel. Most patios are set on a concrete slab or a sand and pebble base.

  • Space: Available space will determine your patio’s size.
  • Shapes: Squares, rectangles, ovals.
  • Levels: Multidimensional surfaces work well with slopes and uneven levels.
  • Drainage: Working with existing runoff systems or determining the best place to build one.
  • Grading: Deals with soil redistribution for a flat, even patio base.
  • Privacy Screening: Walls and enclosures turn a patio into an outdoor room.
