Choosing Your Perfect Outdoor Space

Choosing Your Perfect Outdoor Space

May 29, 2015

An outdoor space is the perfect place for family and friends to gather and enjoy one another’s company. Whether you add a deck or patio, it is important to remember that your backyard is an extension of your home and adds great property value.

There are many things t0 consider when deciding whether you want to install a deck or patio and which will be most suitable for your needs.

1. What do you plan on adding to the space? A hot tub/spa or simply a table a chairs? Determining whether to install a patio or deck depends on the weight that will be placed on the surface.

2. Will snow or rain cause a problem on a flat patio surface? In this case, will a deck be more suitable?

3. It is also important to consider the climate. Which surface will better accommodate hot weather during the summer months?

The next step, once a decision is made between a patio and deck, is coming up with the design.

Choosing material, size and color is essential! Depending on your budget and commitment to maintenance, choosing the right material for your needs is a significant step.

Options include wood, vinyl and concrete.

Selecting the location of your patio or deck is the final step in making your outdoor space a reality. Do you want space for grilling and serving your creations? Will you have enough space for tables and chairs to accommodate large gatherings? Do you prefer the most sunlight? These are things to consider when picking a location.
