The quintessential patio is the perfect place for a gathering or family meal on a warm summer’s day. Complete with a few comfortable chairs, an intimate dining table, and perhaps a few potted plants dotted around, the traditional patio is truly the place to relax in the sun.
Patios are classically built at the back of the house, often accessible through a set of French double doors. The patio is the paved space where chairs can be placed and a dining table set to perfection, overlooking the rest of your garden. Design your garden around you patio; make sure your most beautiful flowers and best flower beds are well within sight from the patio, as you want to show them off from the best vantage point.
