Patio & Pergola. Wednesday , May 03rd , 2017 - 14:59:32 PM
A patio is a great place to cultivate plants and flowers. Buy or make containers and choose some attractive plants for your patio area. Golden Cane palms do well in large pots and ferns are very attractive in hanging baskets. If you want some colour, look out for Camellias, Begonias, Kangaroo Paws, and Bromeliads. All do well in containers and patios. So long as you remember to water your containers and baskets, you can look forward to a summer of greenery.
Patio Umbrellas provide shade from sun and rain, besides adding that touch of glamour. At same time umbrellas, along with other patio furniture, need care and maintenance to be usable for several years. The practical way to go about it is to purchase Patio Umbrella Covers, depending on the size of the umbrella and storage space. When not in use, umbrellas can be stacked standing in basement or garage. But if they are going to be left out in the open then a cover is a must. The cover sizes range from small to extra large and generally have a sewn-in wand for easy fixing.
In the Northeastern US, most suggest using at least a 4-6 inch base of crushed stone, and even up to 7 inches is recommended due to harsh winter weather. For brick pavers, this means that you'll need to dig to about 9" depth, since the pavers are 2 inches in height. Since this is a lot of digging, it may be one of the primary reasons to hire a landscape company.
