    Buy a concrete form from Home Depot in a pattern you prefer and make your patio in whatever dimensions you like. All you need is the form & bags of concrete. You can add colorant to the concrete if you want something other than gray.

    Pavers are easy to lay and look really nice when finished. You just need to level the area, put down some sand, tamp it down, put down the pavers, leveling as you go. Sweep sand in the cracks when you are done.

    There are many ways to create patios/decks from used pallets! You can usually get them for free or really cheap at Ace Hardware or TrueValue. Look for ideas on Pinterest by searching, "Pallet Patios".

    I like the paver idea, we had our done but were we a few years younger, we could have done it ourselves. Anyway, our landscaper used one color for the inside pavers and another for the outside. We kept it small but his use of the border pavers in a completely different patter really defined the area and made it seem bigger.
