Help to soften this concrete jungle patio
perrykate
February 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I just purchased a home that is basically all concrete in the back yard - a patio leading out to a pool. The patio has a shade structure but will get late day sun. I am trying to figure out what to do under the shade structure to soften it. I could rip out the concrete but it will be a high traffic area. I have two small kids (ages 4 & 6). It's in Marin in CA, so it's a pretty mild climate. Pavers with greens or mosses between? Rip out the shade structure? Any ideas would be so appreciated! I've just discovered Houzz and I am addicted:) Thank you!

What did you end up doing with the backyard? Any "after" photos to share?
