The Outdoor Patio of your home provides comfort, and extends the floor space of all gardens. Whilst adding to the aesthetics of your garden, patios also help to create ambience and add value to any property.
There are many aspects to patio design and one should carefully decide in advance how to arrange the patio and its additional features. Consideration should be given to the positioning of elements such as the barbecue, lighting, seating and dinning areas, the pergola and raised or sunken flower beds for example.
It is important that the Swimming Pool fits into the overall design and compliments the Outdoor Patio not look strangely out of place and separate, as if it’s an afterthought. The swimming Pool and the Outdoor Patio should compliment each other and not be two separate entities.
A common fault found frequently is for the Outdoor Patio to have no greenery, no trees or shrubs and lacking in any softening. They can often be barren, uninviting places, void of any features or interest. Thought needs to be given to outdoor dining and shaded areas, plus lighting for the evenings.
The materials used in the patio should mirror or compliment the materials used in the home. Continuity from interior to exterior spaces can be achieved with material links such as: bricks; pavers; concrete; stone, tiles, etc.

Our builders can help you design a patio space that is divided up intelligently - using various elements such as raised beds, sunken beds and planting etc - so that you can escape the traditional blandness of the flat and generic patio that is commonly built.
