Relaxing: though it is not many people who relax on their patios (since most have turned theirs' into domestic 'dumping' sites), the truth of the matter is that one of the main purposes for which patios are designed is to provide sites for relaxation. It follows, if you are one of those who are guilty of turning their patios into dumping sites that you need to rehabilitate the patio, if you are to make it suitable for relaxation. This would involve getting rid of the stuff you have dumped there for which there is no conceivable use, storing the rest of the stuff in an orderly manner (if you have to store it there), and then installing furniture suitable for relaxation. Once this is effectively done, you may come to realize that of all 'rooms' in your home, it is the patio that makes for the most ideal place to relax and pass time.
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.
Most patios are sited immediately adjacent to the rear exit from the house because it is convenient - this may not be the best location for your patio. The back of the house may be shaded all day and therefore not ideal if you wish to like to sit in the sun. Consider a small terrace to the rear of the house with another seating area somewhere else in the garden which gets more sun. When designing a garden it's a good idea to include more than one patio.. One patio can be sited so that it catches the last of the evening sun to provide a warm spot for an evening drink or meal. This makes the garden much more interesting and ensures that you are using more of the garden.
