Silva Vinh. Patio & Pergola. July 17th , 2017.
Next, measure and mark the region that you will be paving. Allow an extra 6-8 inches beyond the furthest dimensions of the patio to provide a firm base for the entire area of pavers and to allow for minor adjustments during the laying and cutting in of the pavers. Place stakes at the edges of the markings and attach a string line to the stakes at the final height.
On the other hand, if you want to design and build yourself a pergola which will last you for 30 years then high quality durable timber or cedarwood or redwood or teak pergolas are the answer. As pergolas can be made to order by custom installation companies many of us choose this option.
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.
In today's tough economic times, homeowners are looking for ways to spruce up their living environments with products that offer the most bang for their buck. Sales of fire pits have skyrocketed in recent years. They provide exceptional value when compared to other patio items. For example, you can acquire one for as little as seventy dollars. A simple table set for your deck can cost four times that! You can add real value to your outdoor living space by purchasing a simple iron fire pit.
