A patio is just one element of a garden design, but it is one of the most expensive parts of any garden build. Because the patio fulfills several different functions it needs be given careful consideration. Here are a few pointers on how to design a patio.
The shape of patio that you choose will depend on your design and the shape and size of your garden. Patios should look natural and flow with the overall design of your garden. Patios can be raised, flat, square, rectangle, round the list is endless. Rectangle and square patios tend to be more traditional and fit into spaces well, so if you have a smaller garden it is often better to choose a patio with straight edges. If you have a bit more space, then you might want to consider a patio with curves to create a soft flowing look.
Whatever your patio arrangement is, that particular layout should help to determine what your patio chairs selection is and how that selection can compliment your other patio furniture and arrangements. If your patio needs bar seating, consider the average age of your guests and how long they will be sitting in the seats. A swivel patio chair with arms and cushions may work well at an indoor patio bar whereas a wrought iron patio chair without arms and stationary might work best for an outdoor patio that is frequently exposed to the natural elements such as the sun, wind and rain.
