Perhaps one of the best things about patios is that they can perfectly complement both large and small gardens. In a large garden, they can break up the space and make it feel less like a football pitch or school playground. When used in a small garden, a patio can make the space more practical.
Need some ideas for patio designs? Here are just a few ways a patio can transform your garden.There’s something a little botanical about the patio pictured below and we love the idea of using paths and patios to transform a simple garden into a really professional-looking space. Want to achieve a similar look? By bordering your patio with a diverse selection of plants, installing a water feature and adding some garden ornaments, you’ll create an environment guests will love to explore.
Before having a patio installed, think carefully about the design that you want. There are so many patio paving designs to choose from and, thanks to the wide array of paving materials available, you can be as creative or simplistic as you wish. We love how the design below combines traditional paving with modern touches.
When people think of patios, they usually imagine a paved area right on the back doorstep of the home. If you’re after something a little different, why not place your patio at the bottom of the garden instead? Surround the patio with beautiful plants, add some shelter, and you’ll have your very own peaceful retreat to help you relax and unwind.
If you’re feeling really adventurous, you could create an elaborate covered patio like the one pictured below. This one’s kitted out with a TV and lighting but you don’t have to go to these lengths if you’re on a tighter budget. With the help of rattan furniture, a BBQ and most importantly, shelter, you’ll have the perfect place to enjoy your garden even when it’s raining.
