The weather is warming up, the sun is shining, and grass is slowly turning green again, which must mean one thing… patio season! I seriously live for patio season- sitting out on a comfy chair surrounded by family and friends, cold drink in hand, chips and guac on the table. But this year I’m in a bit of a panic because our patio is nowhere near ready for the season.
We’ll be doing a major remodel of our patio this summer. Last fall, we jackhammered out our existing patio, and this summer we plan on laying concrete pavers, building wood stairs to our back door, and building a firepit area, a conversation area, a dining area, and a privacy fence. I’ve been hunting for patio furniture and decor non-stop, and I’m dreaming of the day when the rebuilding phase of our patio is finished and we can install the furniture.
This got me thinking of you guys… how can I help YOU create a beautiful patio? I got to hunting and created 3 patio designs at 3 different price points. You can of course mix and match from any arrangement as best fits your situation and budget. I hope that you’ll be inspired to spruce up your patio and start enjoying these warm nights in style!
Note: I did not include any live plants in the price lists, as costs vary so widely. The prices that are listed are the current prices as of writing this post (sales apply) so they are subject to change.
