Rosetta Tordis. Patio & Pergola. March 10th , 2017.
As to wicker and metal outdoor furniture, wicker may need a bit of seasonal care, and metal furniture, it may looks equally stunning. Low-maintenance makes a high keynote when it comes to patio furniture. It is really up to you as to the look you would like to embrace for your patio; green blue stripes on the cushions look great too and come in synthetic material to weather it off.
Although I've seen it done, I don't think you want to be carrying trays of drinks down several steps. One step down to the patio, and another step or two from the patio to the backyard, is acceptable. Any more than that, and you should build a deck, or build a platform under the patio, because you will then have the ability to adjust the height of the deck or patio to the conditions.
Others feel afraid being in a large space especially if they are left alone. Then there is always the risk of intruders which cannot be monitored constantly. It was recently reported in the press that some foreigners came here because they felt that such homes were easy targets for burglary. So they bought their airline tickets and travelled some twenty thousand kilometres just to rob and plunder.
You want your outdoor space to work well rain or shine and be well-lit too. Set the mood with outdoor lighting and install a few battery-powered pendant shades or sprinkle a few sconces along your backyard's walkway.
