As a natural extension of the home’s ground floor, a patio significantly expands a family’s living and entertaining space. It provides a perfect gathering spot for guests and family who will be drawn indoors to this enticing space. Concrete and paver patios are attractive, weather resistant, and extremely functional for your outdoor recreation and entertaining needs. When you install a custom-designed patio in your yard, you will create a beautiful new space that is perfectly suited to your home. Here is a quick look at some of the great benefits of a concrete patio.
A hardscape will provide you with fantastic design versatility as well as functional versatility. No matter the style and landscaping of your yard, you will be able to create a patio that matches your taste with the use of pavers or special stamping and shaping tools that will allow you to make your new concrete patio your very own. The physical structure lends itself to a multitude of uses: wheel in a portable bar and you’ve got a great place for cocktails and mingling; add several seating arrangements and the conversation circles abound; place a large dining table and chairs in the center and you’re ready for dinner party al fresco; or clear the whole space, turn up the tunes and you and your guests can dance the night away!
Along with being incredibly versatile, patios are also extremely durable. When you install a new hardscape in your yard, you will be creating a highly functional space that can stand up to the demands of daily life and will last for many years to come. Your patio will withstand inclement weather such as snow and rain.
A patio is easy to maintain. Unlike a wooden structure, hardscapes will not become damaged by termites or extreme weather conditions. In addition, your patio will be incredibly easy to clean on a routine basis.
These benefits show just how versatile and valuable a hardscape/patio can be. Now imagine it as part of your combination outdoor living space, as a second layer of functionality and beauty…just as it is in both of these recently completed Archadeck of Central South Carolina projects:
Our Northeast Columbia project combined a fire pit and patio with a step down into backyard. The hardscape area of this outdoor living space provides a conversation area surrounding the fire pit and ample space for the homeowner and guests to mingle and socialize while enjoying the warmth and beauty of the fire. Truly a masterful combination of structures and space for these homeowners to enjoy.
At this Lake Murray home, we custom designed and built an outdoor living combination space that included a patio, retaining wall and fire pit along with a screened porch and a deck. To further stretch the enjoyment time, each structure in this outdoor living oasis is constructed with low maintenance materials. The patio is made of stamped concrete, the retaining wall and fire pit use synthetic stone facing, the screened porch is aluminum and the deck is constructed with AZEK composite decking in Hazelwood. As you can see in the pictures above, this stunning design is quite an extensive project and totally transforms this backyard. The patio is vital to the flow of the design and connects the deck to the fire pit. Simply GORGEOUS!
