5 Unique Patio Design Ideas

When you look out your back window, do you smile peacefully or do you cringe at the depressing concrete slab that resembles more of a ghetto alleyway than a suburban backyard? If you’re smiling, awesome. If you’re cringing, we can help – All Terrain can renovate a hardscape however you’d like. Here are some nifty patio designs for you to “ooh and ahh” at to get the juices flowing.

  1. Don’t Be Square

We all get tired of neat corners and straight edges every now and then. Let down your hair and say goodbye to 90 degree angles for something a little more out of the ordinary. You pick the brick – or stone, we’re flexible – and we’ll get going on the circular patio of your dreams.

  1. Pave the Way

If your taste in hardscapes is simple, chic, functional or all of the above, a paver patio is the way to go. We’ve got shapes, sizes, colors and designs that will knock your socks off. Concrete pavers are trendy and easily adapted to meet your expectations of the ultimate outdoor living space.

  1. The Lincoln Memorial

Okay, so maybe you don’t want quite as many steps as the Lincoln Memorial, but nothing classes up a backyard like a short stone or brick staircase extending from the patio. This is an especially practical option if your patio sits on a hill and has started to slant over the years. Plus, steps make an excellent framework for mulch and shrubbery to dress up your landscape, as shown in the photo.
