Growing plants: there are many of us who find ourselves with homes that have no gardens, but who still endeavor to grow some domestic plants. And whilst there are some indoors plants that can be grown, these don't tend to provide the 'image' we yearn for: which in most cases can only be provided by outdoors plants, grown with natural light and integrated to the natural surroundings. In the absence of a garden, the patio would be the ideal place to grow such plants. A patio tends to be semi-enclosed, meaning that the plants will get natural light and be growing in a natural setting (save for the fact that they may have to be potted). And the most beautiful thing here is the fact that using the patio to grow such plants wouldn't make it unsuitable for other purposes. If anything, it is one of the things you may need to do, in rehabilitating it to make it suitable for other purposes such as relaxing.

Often, a patio will be the focal point of a garden so it is important to not only get your patio design right, but to also use the right materials! Bricks, concrete and pebbles can be used, but often the most popular choice is flagstones as they are generally flat and durable.

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.

When deciding where to place your patio, it is very important to consider multiple aspects and ask yourself a few questions. What is the purpose for your patio? Do you intend to entertain large groups of people, or host intimate gatherings? Depending on the purpose of your patio, you then need to consider the proximity to your home. If you are installing a fireplace or fire pit, you need to make sure there is a good distance between your home and where the fire will be contained. You need to look at the available space in your yard. An over-sized patio will overtake a smaller yard. Another consideration is the amount of sun or shade you desire. If you plan to use your patio for sunbathing, you need to make sure it is in a sunny spot.
