Outdoor Patio Design Ideas
Get inspired to create a beautiful outdoor space with gorgeous photos of professional hardscaping, water features, furniture and landscaping. This comfortable patio sits just outside the public portion of the house, and provides the perfect place to enjoy the sunset and a glass of wine.
A well-done patio can transform a backyard into a new kind of outdoor living space. Whether you want a family gathering place, a peaceful retreat, or a garden sanctuary, we've got plenty of ideas to help you make the most of your own backyard. Designing a patio is mostly about function. Think about how you plan to use the space before bothering with accents. Furniture should work for traffic flow, sun/shade exposure and proximity to a fire feature. And don't forget about the importance of weather-resistant fabrics and finishes.
