Choosing the Right Type of Patio for Your Home

Published on: February 22, 2017

Are you adding a patio to your backyard or renovating an existing outdoor space? Patios increase the entertainment area at your home, giving you a pleasant area to relax with the family or host gatherings. In most cases, adding a spacious patio will also increase the value of your home. But before you begin planning your patio design, you first need to decide what type of patio will be the best for your home. Here are three popular patio options that each have their own benefits.


If budget is a concern, concrete patios are your best option. Although not as sophisticated or elegant as other options, concrete still provides a durable, solid surface for your patio furniture and outdoor cooking instruments that is easy to maintain.


Want an elegant or intricate design for your patio? Pavers are an excellent material for any paved surface. There are many sizes, shapes and colors of pavers to choose from, giving you a wide array of design options. Pavers are also easy to maintain and repair – a chipped or cracked paver can be replaced without needing to repave the entire patio.


Natural stone is beautiful and unique, with the durability only stone can provide. Flagstone is perfect for patios due to the smooth, flat surface. Natural stone adds the most value to your home due to its high level of popularity and cost. Many people prefer the natural garden look that stone can provide for their patio area.

Talk to your local landscaper that offers patio design and installation for advice on the best type of patio for your home and budget. Whatever you choose, having a new patio is always a wonderful addition to any home.
