Backyard patio design is one of our favorite projects because you can have fun and get creative with the features and decor. We especially love pool deck remodels like this one, because a few simple changes can give you the feel of resort living in your backyard. In general, most of our outdoor renovations begin with patio pavers. Whether you a building a large pool deck like this one, a covered patio for dining, or simply need something to create a retaining wall for flower beds, this material is the key piece to making it all possible. Pavers are quite inexpensive, incredible versatile, and are available in an endless variety of colors and finishes to coordinate with any architecture or decor style.
When we bought this home one of my favorite features was the gorgeous brick paver patio in the backyard. I have always loved colonial style buildings that incorporate brick throughout the exterior spaces because it reminds me of the living history villages like Williamsburg that my family went to when I was a child. Since moving in, I have felt that the front of our home needed a face lift. It did not have the same great style and attention to detail as the outdoor entertaining area we have out back. We decided to mimic that patio by creating a beautiful brick path from the street using walkway pavers. I love how this new feature instantly and dramatically improved our curb appeal.
Backyard pavers are one of those extremely versatile products that everyone is talking about this year. Every home and garden television show I watch or magazine I pick up, touts them as the top landscaping product for 2019. We decided to jump on the bandwagon and try the product in for our new outdoor living area. We have a large shaded backyard with inground pool but we felt that the space wasn’t being used efficiently. I was inspired by a design I saw on television that used brick pavers as the main vehicle to transform an outdated backyard living area. We decided to add on a huge pool deck complete with multiple seating and dining areas that wrapped around the entire back wall of our home.
Stone patio pavers are an extremely versatile landscaping material. They can be used to create anything from a backyard patio or retaining wall, to a driveway and everything in between. The best part of this multipurpose product is that it is available in a wide variety of price points, shapes, sizes and color schemes. This fanastic frontyard is magnified by the lovely driveway pavers we installed along the entire exterior of the home. The homeowner has a beautifully landscaped backyard area (done by us of course) and wanted to recreate the look of their brick patio in the front. It would have been extremely expensive to install a driveway this large from brick.
A beautiful brick patio like this one adds timeless elegance to any backyard design. We absolutely love how the landscaping of this lush English style estate turned out. Our primary focus was on creating several outdoor living areas that would allow for intimate outdoor entertaining but that was large enough to host large gatherings. In order to achieve this we decided to build a large patio area, but with smaller zones for a bit of quiet in the midst of large parties. To keep with the grand architecture of the home, we wanted to select a paver that exuded classic elegance. We decided on these gorgeous brick landscape pavers in a timeless herringbone pattern. The design is subtle but adds that wow factor that we were looking for.
My neighbors have been raving about using patio blocks in their backyard to build a large pool deck and entertaining area. I had not really heard of them being used in such a large application before so I went over to check out their outdoor makeover. I must admit, I was very impressed with their new additions and can’t believe the low cost and fairly quick installation time that he told me. These are a few pictures of his backyard for reference if you need any paver patio ideas for your house. I really like how he was able to carry the same material throughout the pool deck, fireside lounge space, dining area and courtyard. It makes everything look coordinated and like a professional designed the space, even though he planned the layout and contracted the work out himself.
