New Patio

ChristopherFebruary 10, 2013
What do to with this corner of the Patio. The a/c unit cannot be moved. I would like maybe a confir container in the corner and to the left. I've thought about foutains, you name it...nothing fitting really well. The picture of the corner is w/o the patio furniture. I've added another picture to show with the patio furniture. Any ideas would be most welcome!!!

Could a lattice box be built around it? I'm thinking very open lattice, so as to not impede airflow.

Or, a bar over it?

move the pair of chairs over there and have a conversation area with an outdoor table. Then put a sofa, club chair and cocktail table where the 2 chairs are currently and make it comfy!

In the winter or more specifically in the summer, the unit is running, so sitting closer to the unit would be a bit bothersome because of the blower.

Latice would do well with some planters or furniture in front of the lattice.
Here are some good ideas on garden accessories from our store.

Trouble Free Electric
Just my 2 cents here, but I think that a pergola with built in dimmable LED lighting and weather proof speakers would look great. An even nicer touch would be to have the concrete stained and possibly add a fire pit for those cool nights.

I agree with Trouble Free Electric. Some kind of classy shade structure with lighting then furnish according to Kevin. Then a translucent stain and sealer on the concrete patio.

What way do those lovely windows face? Wouldn't a shade structure impede light? I'd say plants - a planter and some pots would work there. Also like the idea of an open lattice over the AC box.

Lepstein - I totally agree. That was my and still is my plan. Although i am think of a teak bench to go over the a/c with a lattice behind the bench which will still allow for venting, then a couple of pots with, I'm thinking some dwarf conifers.. Thanks...you helped confirm my thoughts!
