We are in need of some new patio ideas because, as you can see, right now it is quite bare. Prior to the start of last summer, we decided to revamp our backyard by installing this beautiful flagstone patio. I think it really upgraded the space but we never quite followed through with the rest of the garden patio ideas we had found. Originally, we wanted to add a large shaded pergola over our dining table in the corner, as well as line the patio with some sort of decorative wall or garden bed to delineate the space better. I think we also need to upgrade our outdoor patio decor with some colorful throw pillows, bright planters, and maybe even an umbrella or two. The space has a tone of potential, we just need to finish up the job.
I have been admiring garden patio ideas that incorporate these flagstones thick grass trim for years now. I always see a flagstone patio like this used in celebrity homes or on the pages of Architectural Digest but I just assumed that something like this could not be achieved in a residential yard like mine. Our landscaper told us that it is actually not that challenging or expensive to install a feature like this, but that it can just be a bear to maintain. Honestly I am fine with the maintenance (I assume I will just take a weed wacker to it) in order to get this same high end look. I do want to find a few more backyard patio ideas like this to give him as inspiration before we finalize our design, but I am so excited to finally get started and have the yard I have always dreamed of.
I have always wanted to have a cute small patio garden behind our cottage just like this one. I love it when homes feature a small getaway out back that looks like something you might find in a fairytale or English estate. The piece that really creates that vibe is the wood arbor covered in vines overhanging the majority of the entertaining space. I tend to gravitate towards patio designs with this feature, and it is definitely something that will be required in our yard. Another thing that all of my favorite garden patio ideas tend to have is colorful flowers and shrubbery. This design in particular stood out to me because the homeowner used brightly colored planters to house bright green bushes and plants. The combination of shades is just stunning and really makes the space pop.
If anybody is on here looking for covered patio ideas, they should definitely check out this lavish design. I am not sure if this is the pool house or the main house in the background, but the way they incorporated so many trendy garden patio ideas into one fairly small area is both impressive and something that will surely inspire a ton of copy-cat designs. My favorite part of their landscape is the gorgeous traditional style covered patio featuring a full roof, column supports and a classic brick patio floor. Placed right next to the pool, it serves as a wonderful place to catch a bit of shade during a sunny summer afternoon or a nice area to eat or hangout if it is raining. I am quite partial to the color blue, so one of my favorite touches is the chic soft blue cushions on the lounge chairs and dining chairs. It gives a very Parisian flare to an already elegant yard.
When my husband gave me the okay to start planning out the changes I want to make to our landscape design, I immediately came online in search of some inspiration photos. The stunning estate was one of the first that caught my eye because of the really cool grass patio border that they created around the pool deck. Their patio landscaping looks like one of those Kardashian mansions or out of a home on MTV Cribs. I would love to create a similar look around our pool but I am not quite sure where to start. After studying the photos closely, it almost looks like the grass between each patio stone is actually some sort of astroturf material. This actually would be kind of nice because it would wear quite well and be a lot easier to maintain than some of the other garden patio ideas I had been looking at. I will report back with what we end up doing in our yard.
We just added this covered deck onto the back our our house and are on the hunt for some garden patio ideas to liven the decor up a bit. On the top of my wish list was an outdoor pergola to provide some shade on those hot summer days, but after it was built I think I want to plant some pretty flowering vines to add both greenery as well as additional coverage from the sun. Plus, I love the smell of honeysuckle and jasmine so I think that would add so much to the overall ambience of the space. I have always been attracted to backyard patio designs that have a slightly old world Spanish vibe with brightly colored planters, coordinating throw pillows and even a decorative fountain or two. That is the direction I would really like to go with this space, but I just haven't been able to find the perfect pottery pieces yet. If any body as any good online stores they would recommend, let me know!
