What Patio Material Is Right For Your Patio?
Flagstone and brick pavers are both great materials for your patio.
Brick pavers are available in a multitude of colors and shapes. It is also possible to combine different styles to create stunning spaces. Typically, brick pavers are set on a sand base.
Pennsylvania Flagstone is a natural gray stone available in different sized squares and rectangles, for a more formal look, and irregular shapes, for a less formal look. It can be installed on a concrete base with mortar joints or on a stonedust base. Both methods are strong and offer a great long term investment.
What Patio Style Is Right For You?
Just as there are different styles of architecture for homes, there are different styles for patios as well. It your home is more formal, square or rectangular shaped patios may be more in order. However, if your home is less formal, more organic or irregular shapes may be a better fit. No matter what, choose a style that you will be most comfortable in. After all, the patio is for you and the more comfortable you are in it, the more you will enjoy using it.

Add a Seat Wall – This sounds simple enough, and it is. A seat wall around part of your patio not only provides extra seating capacity, but also creates a boundary to your patio, making it feel cozier and more private. Another benefit to a seat wall is that when other families come over, the children naturally migrate to sit on the seat wall leaving the parents to enjoy the meal even more.
Light It Up – Lighting can greatly enhance any patio room and extend its usefulness into the night. With today’s technology, LED lights can also save energy and reduce the need to change light bulbs. An automatic timer makes the whole system care free.
Let’s Get Cooking – Adding a-built in outdoor kitchen is a great way to cook meals while you entertain. Grills can be fueled by a gas line or a propane tank and can be as simple or complex as ou want it to be. It is even possible to add a bar with seating for a spectacular way to entertain.
Let There Be Fire! – What is better than sitting around a campfire in the comfort of your backyard. A fire pit can really make a good evening a great evening. Choose from wood burning or gas, just save us a s’more.
