Plants can be a great way to make a patio more comfortable. Plants help the area feel more organic and soft against the hard lines of the patio. Breathing life into your patio, plants can make the area more inviting and relaxed.


Adding some furniture to your outdoor space can be a great way to make it more comfortable and stylish. A couch, chairs, dining table, coffee table, bench, rug, and shades are all ways you can customize your patio space making it unique for your family.


Bringing in art to your patio can make your space visually appealing and help you design a place where you and your family can gather. Consider wall art for the side of your home or fence. You can also incorporate sculptures around your yard and patio. The best part about art is that you can choose it to match your personal style, really adding personality to your patio.



If you’re looking for a bigger project, consider installing a pool in your backyard. There’s nothing better than laying out on the patio on a hot summer day and jumping into the pool to cool off! Adding a pool is the perfect way to entertain yourself and your guests. 

Outdoor Kitchen

You can go with a simple or complex outdoor kitchen; it depends on you and your family! Building a grilling station is a simple way to create an outdoor kitchen space. Add a stovetop, oven, sink, counters, cupboards, or even a fridge to get more complex. You can customize your outdoor kitchen to make the most sense for you.

Fire Tables, Fire Pits, & Fireplaces

Fire pits, fireplaces, and fire tables are all great ways to add a warm element to your patio. The option to heat your space gives you more use of your patio, even in colder weather. Go with a fire table if you want a simple way to add heat to your space. Installing a fire pit is perfect for backyard bonfires. Typically made of metal or stone and placed in a hole in the ground, a fire pit is a more permanent option. Installing a fireplace on your patio is more complex but adds a luxurious feel to your space. A well-constructed fireplace can add a sense of coziness to any patio.

Fountains & Ponds

Fountains and ponds are two great features to incorporate water into your patio space. Water features bring a calming and inviting feeling to your backyard. Fountains bring in an element of art, they can be simple or extravagant. The sound of running water also can help drown out noisy neighbors or cars. Ponds can bring a more natural feel to your patio area. Relaxing on your patio near a pond can be a great way to unwind after a long day. Ponds can also bring in some wildlife to your backyard.
