Outdoor Patio Ideas and Cost Comparisons

Patios are a great place to go and relax after a long day at work or curl up with a great book on a Sunday afternoon. Even if you only have a small area in your backyard you can make the most of it with an outdoor patio. Patios range from a simple concrete slab, with a table and chairs, to beautiful stone or wood multi layer patios complete with outdoor kitchens and dining space.  You can also choose to cover your patio with a pergola for a bit of shade or even build a gazebo.

There are a few outdoor patio projects that a homeowner could complete on their own, such as a small brick patio and some concrete patios. But if you are looking for something a little larger that includes intricate stone work or water features, you are best to call in a professional. The addition of a even a small patio offers a great return on your investment if you choose to sell your home in the future.
