Make detailed plans before building your patio

Before paying the deposit to build a new patio, take a moment and step outside. Look at the paths leading to the backyard. Any trees or bushes blocking access might require trimming or removal to make room for equipment needed for the job. Also, which way is the wind blowing? That’s important to know if you plan to add a barbecue grill, outdoor kitchen or fire pit. Guests won’t enjoy spending an evening with smoke in their faces. The key to building a patio that holds up for years involves creating a detailed plan before breaking ground. A qualified contractor can design that plan, and answer questions you might not think to ask, such as why wind direction matters.
