Gunda Misty. Patio & Pergola. July 17th , 2017.
I think patios are a better choice than decks. Patios last longer, require less maintenance, and allow greater design options than decks. Concrete is the most common material used for patios. Probably because it's relatively inexpensive, and builders use it extensively (because they won't be living in the house themselves).
For special occasions or parties add a touch of the tropical with umbrella covers made of handcrafted palm leaves. The wood-grain pattern on a 1.5" steel pole and a customized pin-lock mechanism adds to the allure of the palm leaf cover. Another individualistic design is a net Umbrella Cover with a drawstring to hold the cover when the umbrella is not in use. Whatever the fabric, check that the cover fits easily and securely, allowing you to zip and unzip while the umbrella is still in the stand. Umbrella Covers with accessible zips and bottom tie cords are reliable on windy days. Basically, Patio Umbrella Covers are for storing or safeguarding umbrellas, so your decision should be based on the usage of the umbrella, and location of the house.Patio, Lawn And Garden Home
Like any large city, the greater Kansas City area has many homes with smaller backyards. Fortunately, concrete patio design can be developed in such as way as to make the most of these smaller spaces. Concrete can be made to look like stone, slate or marble, and it can be polished or given the appearance of large or small bricks. Pre-cut pavers are also an excellent choice for a patio, and homeowners can enjoy the sensation of an Italian Palazzo or woodsy retreat in their own backyard. A good concrete company can give suggestions and offer examples of their work.
An alternative to a complete awning is a shade sail. Shade sails can be custom made to any size you require, or you can combine a number of smaller ones to cover a larger area (the solution you choose will depend partly on your site, and partly on your budget). Shade sails work by a tension system - the sails, often triangular in shape, are anchored to tension points which may be attached to the walls of the dwelling or to the tops of poles sunk into the ground. They have the advantage of being portable: if you sell your home, you can move the sail to your new home and reinstall it for the price of new tension points.
