An awning can be either fixed or retractable. A fixed awning, as its name suggests, stays in the same position all the time. It is usually some type of shade cloth fixed to a permanent frame of steel or aluminium. Retractable awnings can be swiftly stowed away, and are available in either powered or manually operated versions. In climates where permanent awnings must be dismantled at the approach of winter and erected again in spring, retractable awnings, which can be left in their cassette all year round, are especially useful.
Some patio gazebos simply sit on top of the patio. If this is the case, be sure that it is heavy enough not to blow away in the wind! Again, consult the manufacturer. The best freestanding gazebos are metal ' preferably wrought iron ' since they are usually quite. Even if your metal gazebo has a canvas roof, chances are that only the strongest and most particular of hurricanes will disturb it.
Lighting is important on a patio, especially if you love to entertain in the evening. Fit some solar lights. Solar string lights are very pretty at night, but make sure you hang them where they have access to direct sunlight.
Commercial concrete patio design is an often overlooked area of innovation and beauty. While not all of the large businesses located in Kansas City have patio areas for employees or clients, many, especially hotels, do. Concrete patios are an essential area for many area hotels, as it gives the guests a place to settle in for quiet during their stay. Often, the landscaping works around the concrete patio area, and is usually practically maintenance free, which means it will not require a great deal of continual expense. Many colleges and hospitals are also adding patio areas for visitors as well.
