A patio is often built adjacent to an in-ground pool to offer a place for entertaining and relaxing. They can be made of poured concrete, precast concrete pavers or natural stone such as Pennsylvania bluestone or limestone. The materials that you use for a patio should coordinate with the other hardscape materials you use around your house so that there is a cohesive style or look.
Don’t forget one of the best reasons to spend time outside: flowers and plants. Add a big planter or two for your patio, where you can display seasonal planters and add color and dimension to an entertaining area.
After the deck is stained, you should apply a topical sealer, which will help keep out moisture. Some stains have a built-in sealer, allowing you to skip this step, but ask at the store which one is right for your deck. You apply the topical coat the same way you would apply a deck stain using a synthetic brush or roller.
Low-voltage lighting that saves energy and softly lights up your yard is still the best way to enhance your outdoor living spaces. Strategically placed lights that shine into the branches of trees gives them a sculptural quality. Soft but effective light splashing on the pathways leading to your pool, on steps and near your patio will allow you to safely maneuver around your yard without tripping over things such as planter boxes, shrubs and furniture.
