Patio covers also have the advantage of being an inexpensive way to, in effect, extend your home into your backyard while blocking the sun's rays from entering through your home's windows and heating up the place during the sweltering summer months.
Adirondack chairs are highly functional and can withstand the rigors of mother nature should it downpour. There are a few rules that homeowners should really be following even when it comes to plopping down a few chairs.
Although I've seen it done, I don't think you want to be carrying trays of drinks down several steps. One step down to the patio, and another step or two from the patio to the backyard, is acceptable. Any more than that, and you should build a deck, or build a platform under the patio, because you will then have the ability to adjust the height of the deck or patio to the conditions.
Here's what to think about: overall size of the yard; how do you use the yard; contour of the landscape; what functions need to be accommodated on the deck or patio; will you hang out just with the family, or will you entertain often; which other backyard features will be integrated into the immediate area (i.e. awnings, hot tubs, pools, backyard kitchens, plants, seating, railings, etc.). Of course, your budget has something to do with your choices.
