The patio is more than just a seating area in the yard. This is a whole philosophy of having a pleasant time outdoors, with a very long history. Sometimes patios are called terraces and verandas, but this is a slightly different option, although, of course, there are common features. The terrace and veranda are always adjacent to the house, becoming its continuation, simply unheated. The patio can be made as a separate patio and to build this area you need to pave the path with stones or make wooden circles inside the decoration, as if you have a Japanese garden. Do you understand what I mean? There are decorative paths and ready-made architectural solutions can be put on them. I made decor out of epoxy resin and then put eco-film on it so that the weeds would not grow. I put garden furniture on top, you can find more about Patio Sectional if you want to choose something specific for yourself.
