These patio ideas are some of the finest from the web, Pinterest, and www.the-landscape-design-site.com/patio/ . We're gathering new ideas all the time to help inspire us for new designs. This is a great collection that has quite a few unique examples of types of materials, decor, and planting for all types of backyard patios and courtyards both small and big. Thanks to all the wonderful and talented designers, gardeners, and landscapers who have created all these beautiful and inspiring patios.
A very large backyard patio that extends the entire length of the home.
This simple small round patio has a sense of seclusion and separation from the rest of the yard but still remains part of the larger landscape. A good example of making different rooms in backyard landscaping.
A SPANISH COLONIAL Patio that will work well with Southwest, Mediterranean, Spanish and Mexican homes. From the building materials to the flooring to the decor to the furniture to the types of plants used, this covered backyard patio has some great ideas for a lot of different style homes.
Southwest Outdoor Fireplace Patio - A covered patio like this often becomes one of the most used areas of the entire home. Regardless of weather, Winter, or Summer this outdoor room is a great design idea.
outdoor entertaining with privacy curtain, ivy over pergola, add fireplace to one end (maybe a steel fire & ice over gabions format), pebbles between paving stones - also like some with mondo grass towards edges back patio, outdoor rooms, outdoor living, pergola, backyard, deck, outdoor spaces, porch, garden
A lot of different elements but still real simple. The top cover is probably the most difficult and involved element.
Outdoor rooms like this are great. Maybe a bit much for my own place.
Privacy patio under a deck. What a great way to make use of the space under a second floor deck. Privacy if you need it and an extended area outside the room to have a fire pit.
Secret garden - I just like enclosed courtyard patios like this. A great place to just hide out on hot days. The rustic style works well with almost any home style.
ArtofGardening.org: Awesome artist garden alley
Nice compact open air outdoor furniture idea.
We'd love to spend the afternoon relaxing in this outdoor room!
