Summertime is the time of the year when we spend a lot of time outdoors. Coupled with the current pandemic, and we are more likely to sit on the patio now than in the past. This space is great, as it is a center point of socializing, whether it’s just for a casual conversation or a dinner. When it comes to surface of your patio, there are many different options you can consider, from gravel and bricks, to sand and pavers. All these options have their own advantages and will vary in actual cost.
- Patios do not have to go by the traditional template of being smooth, even, polished or contour-free.
- It’s more than acceptable to go for the less used but more interesting path of using more organic choices, like gravel, or cobblestone.
- Go for wood certainly. But also consider less traveled options like, concrete and pavement.
“Factors such as location, size of the outdoor space, budget, personal preference, and local building codes will guide you on choosing the right surface for your patio.”
