IS A CONCRETE PATIO A GOOD CHOICE FOR MY BACKYARD?

Here are four reasons to pick concrete for your patio:

1) Create an outdoor entertaining zone

In addition to serving as a gathering zone for lounging and entertaining, concrete patios allow homeowners to seamlessly blend interior and exterior living spaces. They are the perfect decorative flooring surface for outdoor kitchens and living rooms, complete with cozy seating areas, fireplaces and water features.

2) Customize with color and pattern

What’s more, this outdoor floor offers unlimited design options. When enhanced by stains and integral colors, concrete patios can be color coordinated to match a home’s exterior or landscape. They can also be stamped or engraved in patterns that mimic other popular paving materials, such as brick, flagstone, slate and tile.

3) Save money without sacrificing style

As an investment, concrete patios typically cost less than patios made of brick or natural stone because they are less labor-intensive to install. The lower price tag combined with the wide array of patterns and colors available make concrete an economical choice for most budgets. Plus, concrete is easily formed into any shape to accommodate backyard space restrictions.

4) Enjoy a durable, low-maintenance surface

Upgrading your backyard with a decorative concrete patio is also an investment that will provide many years of enjoyment while improving the look of your landscape. Concrete is easy to maintain and can stand up to the harshest of weather conditions. Unlike paving stones, you won’t have joints between units where grass and weeds can sprout. And unlike wood, concrete won’t warp, rot or require periodic staining.

LANDSCAPING AROUND A CONCRETE PATIO

Pergolas are a great, economical way to add a shade structure to your patio. For denser shade, consider growing vines that will cover the area.

Here are some landscape tips to balance with hardscape:

Adding shade to your patio

Think broadly when it comes to shade covers:

  • Trees are idyllic with their natural shade, but they can take many years to mature and provide that needed shade.
  • Pergolas are a great option with which you can grow vines to create denser shade.
  • Fabric sail shades are available, along with the typical wood or aluminum covered patio construction.

Use planter beds to break up pathways and soften hardscape edges.

Tips for using greenery to balance with hardscape

  • To avoid the feel of overdoing the hardscape, use grass and groundcovers to break up pathways between patios.
  • Place flowerbeds between structures (like homes and walls) and patio areas.
  • Even narrow 24-inch wide planter-beds will help soften edges and give the yard a more inviting, garden-like feel
