Budgeting for a Patio this Spring
Patios are the centerpiece to your outdoor living area. Any feature or areas you ever dreamed about will start with a proper patio design. A well designed patio or outdoor living space will make the home more valuable and more marketable. This is a quick insight of how much patios and patio design with features costs.
The first thing you should decide is how much room you need. Most basic patio prices will be determined by square footage. If you need steps then that has to be factored in as well. There are two main materials we use for patio and steps. We construct patios using either decorative stamped concrete or using a paver stone. Decorative concrete will be less expensive than paver stone by a few dollars per square foot for both the patio and steps. Expect paver to be about %20-%50 more depending on certain factors.
Once you get and understanding of the space then determines what features you may like to add. There are many different features that serve different purposes. Most features are added to help increase the amount of time you can use your patio and for entertaining or gathering areas. A few of our more popular features include pergolas, fire pits, and outdoor kitchens. You can find out more about these features here: Outdoor Features
Finally, after deciding the size and material of the patio and what features you want to add then you may want to consider adding landscaping and lighting. Adding landscaping simply finished of the patio design. You can beds using plants that had interest. Lighting can be added to within the landscaping or they can be installed into the hardscape. There are plenty of different area light can be added. Many of our clients incorporate them into steps and walls.
