Designing a Patio

I was asked the other day for some tips on designing a patio area. What I did was write a guide detailing a number of considerations, such as where in the garden, ground conditions and design aspects.

If anyone here is thinking about laying a new patio then this should really help.

    Great tips-and the video was filled with ideas. I love the look of sandstone but am intrigued with the stone mat. Lots to dream about-thank you.

    My patio laying days are over but I absolutly adore them! I think a small patio belongs anywhere when conditions are suitable.!!

    Hi Dee - I have to agree, the Sandstone in the video was my favorite. I err on the side of contemporary / minimalist design and the Sandstone produces such clean lines. So happy it provided a little inspiration. Have a great day! Graham

    Hi Jeanette, I think most people do actually give a great deal of thought nowadays as to where a patio should be situated in the garden, not simply for aesthetics but also for practicality.

    I didn't mean to mislead anyone...my point is, everyone needs one somewhere! And that they do not have to be large and elaborate! People can think in terms of a "nook"!

    Hi Jeanette - absolutely, a patio can be any shape or size you want. I've seen some extremely nice examples of tiny patios tucked away in a quiet part of the garden - perfect for that time when you need to relax away from it all :)
