Not all Houston patios need to look alike. In this article, we will give you 5 customized patio features on where and how you can create and apply it to make your patio look like no other!
Create a focal interest by adding levels to your flat terrain patio. Whether it’s adding potted plants, creating borders to highlight your garden strip or planting plants of different heights, all these add a mixture of levels. Another thing to note is the curved corners of the patio, making the space look more dynamic and flowing.
Simplify your landscape design to a raised garden strip and highlight it with borders. Customizing your patio landscape this way will give you less space to maintain while still adding beauty to your property. The borders also help keeping the plants from overgrowing or invading the rest of your lawn.
Another customized patio we have worked on made use of pergolas to draw the eye upwards. Borders also neatly direct foot traffic and segment the large outdoor area into different sections. There’s an area where the ground cover thrives without having to compete with other plants. The choice ornament plants grow on a raised bed enclosed by the border, while the pergolas work as a patio cover and as a transition marker from one area to another.
You can also customize your garden paths to display some curves. It gives a whimsical touch to your overall garden look and adds a sense of exploration for the rest of your outdoor area. Doing so, it gives an otherwise small path like the above an interesting aspect to it.
Even if you don’t need garden paths, you can still design curves on your patio surface. This paver patio sports a circular design which is enough to draw attention even with the lack of other design for the patio.
