When considering designing a patio from scratch, you need to take into consideration the way that you intend to make use of it. Do you want to sit in the sun all day? Do you want an area of shade? Are you going to use it as a workspace, if you work from home? Will you have barbecues on it?
Another consideration is where you will put it. A patio doesn’t necessarily have to be attached to the house. You could just as easily put it at the end of your yard, or at the side of the house if there is space. In fact, you can build a patio anywhere that you can lay a wood or brick floor.

If you have a deck that is some years old, it’s a very good idea to check it for safety. Accidents can and do happen on and around decks, so it is better to be safe than sorry.
First, check for any signs of split or decaying timber. This includes the ledger board, which is the part that is attached to the house, and is often a cause of deck failure. You also need to check any support posts, railings, and steps. Use a screwdriver to see if it will penetrate the surface of the timber. If it does, it is more than likely that the timber is decaying and will need replacement.

If you are considering constructing an outdoor living area, you may well be wondering if you should create a patio or a deck. Furthermore, what is the difference between them? After all, both of them give you outdoor living space, and seem to perform many of the same functions.
To begin with, a deck is usually constructed of wood, and is a platform raised above the ground. In many instances, it can be raised several feet off the ground. For example, if your yard slopes dramatically away from the house, you may build a deck that is at the ground floor level of your home, so that you can walk out on to it from the kitchen or back door to...

If you are considering adding a patio to your yard, or updating an existing one, one of the things which may concern you is your privacy. If your patio can be seen from the road, or by your neighbors, you don’t want to feel uncomfortable sitting out there, so you may want some sort of a screen.
Of course, you could put up fencing or build a wall. There are many different types of fencing available – many of which are decorative. The same thing applies to a wall: it doesn’t have to be simply row upon row of house bricks. It is more expensive than fencing, but you could create a design yourself and have it built by a craftsman.
