Are spring and summer your favorite seasons of the year? If so, maybe the reason for that is that you love to spend time in your back yard. Perhaps each year you add something different to your landscape design. Do you already have a plan for those changes? If not, here are some ideas that might help you.
Masonry Work Services - Even if you already have a small patio, maybe you have decided to add a larger one in a different part of your back yard. For example, maybe your existing patio is close to your actual house and you want one where you can better see the landscaping you have designed. Consider the foundation you want for your patio. A professional mason will have the training and the experience to carry out any foundation design you want. And, if you don't know what kind of foundation you want, the mason will be able to help you select one.
For example, the mason might suggest that you use flagstone or brick for the foundation of your new patio. Or, he or she might come up with something truly unique by suggesting faux painted concrete for the patio's foundation. Have you ever seen faux-painted concrete? If not, you'll probably be amazed at the magic that faux painting can perform on plain gray concrete.
For instance, you may choose the look of a marble floor or the appearance of intricate Mexican tile. A skilled mason who has the talent to do faux painting can give your concrete foundation either of those looks or any other one that you decide on.
Select Patio Furniture - Part of the fun of having a new patio will be in selecting the furniture for the area. Think of the look that you want to establish. For example, you might want a New Orleans look. If that's the case, consider going with dark green or black wrought iron furniture. Add charm to the patio by selecting white wicker chairs or rattan furniture. Another idea is to choose wooden furniture that has been designed especially for outdoor use.
Besides the table and chairs you select for the patio, consider other ways you can add drama to the new area. For example, if there are trees overhead, think about hanging decorative birdhouses from the branches. An outdoor water fountain is another way to add interest to your patio.
