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.
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.
Outdoor Kitchen and Bar - the closed in full design style with the stone is really appealing.
