Patio Inspirations

It's March..... it's about time to get outdoors again!  Here are some amazing inspirational patio/outdoor ideas you can use that best suits your personal style.


Under the Bistro Lights

The use of multiple substrates underfoot helps define the different sections of this yard. In this Minneapolis backyard, pea gravel sits underneath the dining area while the main seating area is covered in flagstone pavers. The pavers extend around the side of the yard to seamlessly lead to the front of the house. *pc: Brett Hilton


All the Amenities Included

Slate tile anchors this gorgeous patio with its cozy pergola-covered seating area, cooking area, swim spa and large dining table. A small wood deck with slats run on a diagonal creates a nice transition between the patio and pool. *pc: Brennan Gray


White Patio + Pergola

This huge white pergola shields the patio from nearby neighbors plus it provides a place to hang large lanterns. Slate tiles paired with the home’s shingle siding are a classic combo, but the chevron pattern of the tiles gives it a fresh twist. The white stone fireplace creates a border as well as a focal point. Matching the furniture to the fireplace is a smart way to keep the space bright even on dark days. 

Tiny Boho Chic

The homeowners made the most of this small yard with smart decorating and landscaping choices. Gravel poured over landscaping fabric ensures that weeds won’t be popping up while the concrete pavers by the dining area make more sense for keeping the table and chairs level. A built-in banquette provides seating as well as storage and string lights hung along the fence illuminate the nook for nighttime dining. *pc: Nathan Fowler
