Overview to patio and deck hardscapes

residential patios

Decks are considered the Cinderella of landscaping. Over the years, it has become a Beautiful Princess. From what was just a basic set up of a small rectangle with a chair or two with a few plants, it’s function has greatly changed. It is now an extra room or space attached or separated from the house where different activities take place. Decks are now made resistant to rain and may contain a water feature. Decks can also have cooking facilities, outdoor heating, and lighting. Comfortable seating and dining facilities are also present in decks nowadays.

Your deck and patio design should match your lifestyle. As an addition, patios and decks increase the value of your home, compared to other types of improvement. Your return on investment can be twice as much, even for mid-sized decks.

Nowadays, deck floor plans are almost the same as the home. Decks can be made with multi-levels, walls, and pergolas for added privacy. Extra storage, seating, and other built-ins are installed in a deck too. Spending more time on the deck is now possible with the addition of an outdoor fireplace. Outdoor lighting is also something you can add to your deck.

When planning to build your patio or deck, it is important that you know where it goes. Is it going to be in the south, so it will be warmer? Is it going to be a freestanding structure or is it attached to the home? It may or may not have foundations, with either timber floors or paver flooring. You can also choose between solid walls or clear with roll-down blinds. Also, keep in mind that the decision will mostly depend on your home’s current situation.

It is important that the type of paver you choose lasts for years and at the same time never going out of style. Warm and earth tones is your best bet when choosing pavers. The trend right now is making a home look as natural as possible. Simulated stone paver is a popular choice in patio pavers. It looks like stone but is made of a different material. It has an earthy look that makes it in demand without breaking the bank. Clay pavers are also the mostly used paver because of its classic and modern look. Clay pavers are also known for being sturdy and sophisticated.

Adding a built-in bbq is becoming a popular trend. A built-in bbq is an extension of the pavers already used on the patio. A brick bbq is a luxury because of the beauty of its brick design. It now serves as the focal point on a patio and entertainment area.
