Patio & Pergola. Friday , June 23rd , 2017 - 04:59:33 AM
When you close your eyes and visualize you and your guests enjoying the nice weather and maybe a drink or three, you're probably envisioning a patio that takes advantage of everything your backyard has to offer.
I think patios are a better choice than decks. Patios last longer, require less maintenance, and allow greater design options than decks. Concrete is the most common material used for patios. Probably because it's relatively inexpensive, and builders use it extensively (because they won't be living in the house themselves).
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.
