The Best Types of Patios


If you are considering hiring patio installers and having a new patio installed on your house, you may be looking for ways that you can incorporate that patio with your landscaping. When trying to decide exactly what type of patio you want, it can be helpful to know what types of patios are available to you and how you can integrate them into your current landscaping.


Stone Patios

Stone patios are a great way to bring some rustic charm to your home. They look great with just about every type of house, from brick to siding, from traditional to modern. Stone gives you the ability to be very creative, and with the range of different colors and styles available, you can’t go wrong with choosing stone. Stone also gives you the ability to be very frugal, if you want to be, or to choose more expensive stones and really gets something that is high quality and very classy.

Concrete Patios

Concrete doesn’t have to be boring and it doesn’t have to look drab and industrial—unless you want it to. Concrete offers almost limitless possibilities. It can be poured and stained to look like stone, it can be shaped exactly how you want it to be, and it can even be painted or colored so that you have a color that complements your home perfectly. While most people think of a slab of concrete as boring, the truth is the concrete itself is a blank slate. Once the concrete is mixed, you can do just about anything with it!

Wooden Patios

If you are going to have a cover over your patio, laying wood might be a great option for you. The cover prevents the wood from taking the full brunt of the punishing weather. Most patio installers do not offer wood as one of their primary options, but if you are looking for a patio that is a combination of a patio or a deck, it is possible to find patio installers who will take on this project. Wood, like concrete, gives you almost endless possibilities when it comes to color and style.
