Desperately need help with patio idea!

January 7, 2013 in Design Dilemma
When we purchased our house, the previous owners had spread rocks in place of a front yard. We could not keep up with the weeds, so my husband and I decided on a front patio idea. We live in the country so no neighbors. I am at a loss on how to make the area inviting....please help!

I don't know what style do you prefer, but maybe You can find something here: http://www.furniturenyc.net/outdoor-furniture.html - Furniture for outdoor use.

You need some shrubs against the house and trees. The only thing I can think of is to cut holes in the deck and plant some trees in strategic locations - then add patio furniture. Perhaps build an outdoor fireplace as well.

also, have you considered an arbor? i could see and arbor with white lighting and ivy over your back patio. I think what this space needs is to close it off a little. The space is almost too open. Needs to feel a bit more intimate. Add cozy furniture and you got a nice space!

I think you need at least two of these or similar set-ups along the perimeter in strategic places to provide a more cozy, defined look.

What kind of patio furniture do you want to put out there? Are you going to use it as a patio?
