Natural Stone Patios - The Best Way to Set Landscape and Swimming Pool Areas in Stone Swimming pool and other backyard patios can be largely overlooked when it comes to landscape and swimming pool designs. To the average homeowner, swimming pool patios and dining patios are valued but seriously underestimated in terms of their power to really define an outdoor living space. Natural stone works great for patios, considering it lasts longer than pavers and does not fade in color or become slippery like stamped concrete. In general, natural stone patios provide a number of opportunities to transform the most functional aspect of a landscape and swimming pool into an art-form that enhances the overall ambience. The choice of stone is the first task in defining your outdoor living space with a patio. Swimming pool patios should stay relatively cool in the hot sun, keeping in mind that you will have to walk barefoot on this surface. A grey Tennessee Crab Orchard is a popular choice for pool patios because it stays relatively cool in the sun. The color is also rather neutral, allowing the adjacent pool and landscape to really show off. For dining patios, a more formal natural stone can be utilized. Bluestone works perfectly for formal patios. Sandstone also brings formality, yet remains somewhat neutral in doing so. Pool patios can also feature these more formal stones as well. A sandstone swimming pool patio with bluestone accents can really highlight a formal swimming pool and landscape. After you choose the stone for your pool or dining patio, the next task is to determine the pattern. Around natural pools, especially pools with waterfalls, natural stone set in irregular patterns works beautifully; the natural stone patio, set in an irregular pattern, can enhance the rugged look of the pool. For formal pools, the patio can utilize the same stone and set it in a regular, geometric pattern. Any stone patio pattern can be slightly modified for a custom design. In a very subtle way, an altered pattern can offer a frame for patio furniture, for example. Finally, with the stone and pattern set, finishing touches can be applied. Small accents in any patio can tie the entire yard together. For example, a sandstone outdoor living room patio can lie adjacent to the bluestone dining patio. A slight bluestone accent in the outdoor living room can blend it with the dining patio, while still allowing it to distinguish itself as a separate outdoor "room." Accents can also blend the patio with aspects of the home and other architectural elements of the back yard. Brick can even be scattered about a natural stone patio for sharp, distinct color and contrast. To summarize, upgrading to a natural stone patio can take your swimming pool and landscape to the next level of design and style. First choose the stone for your swimming pool or dining patio. Choose a stone that fits the style of the backyard area, while paying close attention to the functional needs of the surface. Next, decide on a pattern for the stone. Remember, regular fits formal, irregular for natural. Finally, get creative. Ask your swimming pool and landscape design company to spice things up by using a combination of materials to create accents that bring unique style to the patio design. Detail, color, and creative subtleties make for the most definitive, eye-catching natural stone patios.
Your Choice of Patio Dining Furniture Can Really Make a Difference in Your Backyard Area Special intimate moments, such as marriage proposals and wedding anniversaries, call for special celebrations. And one of the best ways to celebrate such significant events is dining out in fine restaurants. The problem with dining out is that your choice of venue might get crowded, particularly if you are holding your celebrations on popular romantic days like Valentines Day. And even if there are not too many people around and the place has that serene atmosphere that would provide much needed privacy for celebrating couples, would it not be more romantic if you have the entire place on your own? It certainly is. That is why holding dinner in a patio is a very special way to celebrate. Not only that you will feel free and private in a patio, you will also experience a more heightened sense of intimacy with your loved one watching the blue moon rise from the night sky while you sip together that fine scented wine while you relish on the cool and fresh outdoor breeze... Yes, having dinner in a patio is one of the most romantic experiences a person would ever have. How many nicely done patio dinners have resulted in successful marriage proposals and helped long-time married couples rediscover their lost passions? But you cannot just successfully hold a romantic patio dinner. You will need to prepare and see to it that you will have the best kind of wine, the perfect menu, and the right kind of setting. And for you to have the right kind of setting, you will need to have the perfect patio dining furniture. Patio Dining Table: Think of the outdoor dining table as the centerpiece of your patio experience. It is where you will have your food and wine served. It is where you will place beautiful flowers and scented candles that will help in spicing up your romantic evening with your loved one. It is, therefore, necessary to have the right table. How will you know if what is the right table to buy? Simple: just see to it that it will match your patio. If you have a traditional patio, then your patio table should also evoke a traditional aura. Let us say that your patio is made of dark hardwood. Then by all means, you should also get a matching patio dining table that is made of dark hardwood. You do not want to spoil the elegance of your traditional patio by getting a casual patio table. Patio Dining Chair: If your patio table should match the design of your patio, then it also follows that your patio dinning chairs should also fit your table. Obviously, an aluminum patio chair would be an eyesore if you have a wooden dining table on your patio. Likewise, it is not pleasing to have a patio dinner seated on a wooden patio dinning chair while eating on a plastic patio dining table. Patio Dining Furniture Designs: Aside from traditional wooden patio tables and chairs, there are also other designs that are out in the market. If you want a casual feel at your dinner, then you can get casual dining furniture that are made from aluminum, plastic, wood, and other materials. For those who want to have a different but chic design, modern patio dining tables and chairs would be the best choice. But before you set out to buy your patio dining furniture, see to it that it would match or fit your patio. You would not to spoil a lovely dinner by getting the wrong kid of dining furniture for your patio. Even if you have great food and wine, a potentially wonderful patio dinner experience would be ruined if you will not have the right patio dining furniture.
