Whether your patio is similar to a breezy Los Angeles gazebo or a part of a luxurious waterfront condominium with walk-out to the water's edge, choosing patio chairs to complement the rest of your patio furniture is essential.

Square patios are the most common and can blend well with formal or contemporary gardens. If you like to entertain a lot of people, a large square or rectangular patio is a great way to go. Circular patios can either be a full circle or a half circle. The full circle patio is generally independent of other hardscapes and usually feature a focal point. Half circle patios abut either a building, such as your home, or another hardscape form, like a garden wall. Circular patios blend well into landscapes since there are no hard edges that stand out. Free-form patios are asymmetrical, less predictable, and great for more informal gardens.

Give consideration as to what you will be using your patio for, and what type and size of patio furniture or ornaments are going to be placed on your patio area. I have often seen people build patios which are going to be used as a family eating area, only for the whole patio to be swamped when a family table is placed on it, making it difficult for people to manoeuvre round the table and leaving absolutely no room for anything else such as pots, ornaments or seating. If you intend to entertain on your patio or eat as a family on it, make sure that your patio is big enough! There is nothing worse than designing and building your patio, only to discover it is too small as does not meet your needs!

Popular choices for flags include sandstone, limestone and granite. There are also a lot of imported stones available like indian stone, which is often a cheaper option to some regional stones like yorkshire stone.

A lot of garden centres and builders yards will have them on display for you to view. Choose something that will compliment your existing style and features. You don't want to spend a lot of money on the 'in thing' only to discover it has gone out of fashion in a few years time!

A person should also clean their patio thoroughly before they use it for the first time when summer arrives. If the patio is a wooded patio, then making sure that the wood is in good shape is a must for making sure it is ready for summer. Adding a grill or some sort of cooking device to the patio is another good way to prepare it for summer.

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.
