Selecting Patio Materials for your Home

Home / BLOG / Landscaping Tips / Selecting Patio Materials for your Home

There is a wide variety of materials that are available for surfacing a patio. You want to make sure that the material you choose will blend together well with the surroundings and other materials used in the landscape, while at the same time, providing the right surface for the intended use of the patio.

Here are a few tips that will help you choose the right patio material for your needs.

  • For a patio that will be an outdoor dining/entertainment area – solid surface like brick or pavers is best because they create an even surface.
  • For a patio that has a natural and woodland atmosphere – large fieldstones and ground cover planted between the stones softens the look of the area.
  • For an elegant patio –  crushed granite can be compacted to form a surface almost as stable and firm as concrete, and water can percolate through it, making it a sustainable solution.
