5 Factors That Will Affect Your Patio Installation

A backyard patio is a great investment. It won’t only increase the value of your home, it will also enable you to make fun memories with family and friends.

If you’re thinking about installing a patio, there are a few things you need to consider in order to create the best patio for your property.

  1. Landscaping

A patio is great for entertaining friends and family but it’s also a design statement. Take a moment, step back and look at your garden before you decide on a size and shape. Perhaps a rounded shape would fit better than a squared or triangular shape. Or maybe you should install it in a different area than originally thought.

You could even make a drawing of your landscape and play around with different designs and layouts before you make your final decision.

  1. Drainage

Your backyard is able to absorb water when it rains. Add a patio on top of it and you might run into some issues with water accumulation. Paving reduces the amount of water that can be absorbed, especially if you pick something like concrete. It’s advisable to talk to professional paving contractors to figure out how you’ll be able to drain the water to avoid flooding.

  1. Design Statement

Take advantage of the area and make a bold design statement. Create a focal point that will impress your visitors. This can be achieved by incorporating a fire pit or a waterfall. Or you can simply play around with the stone colour and pattern.

  1. Plant Coverage

Plant some flowers, bushes or small trees around your patio if you don’t have much landscaping already. If you just put your patio in the middle of your yard, it will make for a harsh look. Greenery will break the boldness and soften the paving. Additionally, trees can provide shade in summer.
