Posted on July 27, 2016

Blue Stone Patios BostonAfter getting your landscaping and sod installation in Wellesley, MA, you’ve been considering ways to spruce up your patio area. There are so many ways to make your outdoor space an extension of your living room, and Cataldo has a few suggestions to improving your outdoor aesthetic and functionality.

Shade. If your yard does not have mature trees or is not conducive for those plants, you might want to consider other options like umbrella patio sets, shade sails, pergolas, or other similar options dependent on your budget. With our warm summer months, a little protection from the sun can go a long way.

Lighting. Be able to enjoy your outdoor space at all times of the day with lighting. Whether you decide on string lights, torches, or other lighting fixtures, you’ll be happy for the investment that is both sensible and useful.

Seating. What good is outdoor space without furniture? Patio furniture is built for outdoor elements, and pressure-treated wood can make way for a great table creation if you have someone crafty in your life. Seating allows for overflow of family gatherings into more areas of your home, which can help your guests feel more comfortable.

Extras. If your home is in need of a little extra fun, items like a grill or fire pit might be the perfect decision. It both increases your use of your patio and gives your family fun activities for those chilly summer nights.

Brick Pavers. If the cracked, concrete slab is ruining the look of your new outdoor purchases, it might be time to consider a new brick patio. Brick patios are durable, easy to maintain, and even easier to repair. This design decision is a great way to improve the look of your backyard while also improving your home’s value.
