Have you been thinking about installing a patio in your backyard, but haven’t been able to make your mind up once and for all?
If you find yourself nodding in agreement, we’re here to help make this decision a little easier for you. Today we’ll be sharing five reasons why so many people choose to add a patio to their backyard and why you should too.
Did you know that 58% of American homes now feature a patio?
There has got to be a reason why so many people choose to either buy a house that features a patio or opt to install one for themselves shortly after moving in. And it’s not only because of the fact that a patio increases the resale value of your home.
Here are the top 5 reasons to install a patio in your backyard:
1. A Spot to Appreciate your Garden
Patios provide a serene spot for you to sit back, relax and enjoy uninterrupted views of your garden. Sometimes, despite our hard work in them, we take our gardens for granted. But a patio allows you to see your garden from a whole new perspective.
2. Enjoy your Garden No Matter the Weather
If you opt to install a covered patio you can still spend time in your garden when it’s raining. What sounds better than sitting back with a good book in hand, enjoying the scent of petrichor and listening to the gentle lull of falling rain? Patio installers companies like City Seamless Patio Covers can turn this fantasy into a reality for you.
3. Extra Space to Enjoy
A patio is a great space to entertain guests, host barbeques and—with the right furniture—can act as an extended living area. This is the perfect solution for people who feel that their home is too small or cramped to entertain family and friends and for those who want to get out of the house without straying too far.
4. The Perfect Space to Create your Living Roof Garden
While we’re on the topic of covered patios, here’s another added advantage to installing one: you finally have a space to create your own living roof garden. A covered patio presents you with a suitable structure for a living roof garden.
5. They Require Little Maintenance
We know how busy maintaining your garden keeps you and the last thing you want to do is increase your list of maintenance jobs. Patios require very little maintenance and cleaning one is a breeze.
To decrease the already minimal maintenance responsibilities of a patio, consider sealing it.
These are just five of the many reasons why a patio is a perfect addition to a backyard. If you’re now convinced a patio is the finishing touch your garden needs and you love the look of hardwood flooring, be sure to check out this article to find out how the two tie together.
