Excerpt from the Book:

As an “outdoor room,” designing and decorating a new patio is not so different from planning any other living space. The design rule “function comes first” certainly applies. Assessing how everyone in the household will use the new patio is the primary consideration that influences every other decision, from planning the size, shape, and layout to choosing paving materials and adding special features and amenities.

One of the great things about building a new patio is the number of available options. Few other building projects offer so many choices of materials, configurations, and even locations. With all of this flexibility, a patio can complement your home’s architecture as much as it shapes your landscape, and that’s what makes creating a patio from scratch such a rewarding project.

    I was about to deduct a star because this is going to be hard work, but laughed cuz I just don’t want to make the physical effort. The explanations and directions are clear. Lots of good points about drainage and thoughts about how to plan location, usage of patio.
