Settling on a Patio
Determining which type of walkway and/or patio is right for your home is key—especially for deciding if you should get your materials from a hardscaping company and do the project on your own, or hire an expert. As you work to decide what type of patio you would like, ask yourself a few questions: How often will I, or others in the home be using the space? What will the space be used for? What will be put in the space (furniture, décor, etc.)? Decide how big of a space you need and the layout of the area to decide how big of a project you are capable of taking on.
