5 Questions to Ask When Researching Your Dream Patio:
What are my goals for my new exterior space? Start with jotting down what you plan to use your patio for. Will you be holding outdoor parties to watch the big game or are you in need of an upscale entertainment venue that rivals the comfort of the interior of your home
Where do I want my new patio to be located? Understanding the unique layout of your home and its exterior will help you determine the best place for your new patio. Walk around your property and search for the perfect vantage points to determine location and orientation.
What materials should I use? Stained concrete, gray pavers or the desire for more natural materials like local stone may be considered while reviewing how these materials complement your existing landscapes and the exterior of your home.
What type of maintenance and upkeep do I want? Be honest with yourself. New Year’s resolutions aside, what type of maintenance and upkeep makes sense of your lifestyle and personality type.
Who will I choose to turn my vision into reality? Working with an experienced landscaper is the key to making your dream patio a reality. Check references, look at past projects and ask lots of questions before choosing the landscaper who can make it happen.
