3 Features That Make A Perfect Patio

On a cool Atlanta summer night, there’s nothing better than spending a relaxing evening out on your patio. You can enjoy the mild weather, listen to the crickets, and drink in the scenic beauty of your landscaping.

But whether you already have a patio – or are interested in a brand-new one – there are some features you should consider installing! These fun, unique features can take your patio from “brilliant” to “perfect” – and provide you and your family with the best possible outdoor experience!
Read on, and learn about the top 3 features that make a perfect patio!

  1. Firepits

Is there anything better than a fire on a balmy summer night, or a chilly autumn evening? With the right firepit, your patio will be usable all-year-long – and you’ll provide family and guests with a fun, cozy seating area!

Firepits are great for a number of reasons. First, fire pits can help keep annoying insects away – which is especially great when dealing with pesky Atlanta mosquitoes. You can even boost this insect-repellent power by burning citronella leaves!

Second, fire pits create a natural, eye-catching focal point on your patio. A fire pit can help accent your existing landscaping and patio materials, and improve the appearance of your patio.

Finally, firepits are just plain fun! Kids and adults alike love fires, and fire pits allow you to do things like roast hot dogs, make s’mores, and gather around for some quality family time!

  1. Water Features

Whether you’re interested in a waterfall, fountain, or a koi pond, water features are a fantastic addition to your patio. The burbling, peaceful sound of water helps create a relaxed atmosphere on your patio.

Fountains and waterfalls are great for adding visual interest to your patio, and offer you a chance to create a truly unique decoration that can augment your landscape perfectly.

Koi ponds are a great choice for those who are interested in keeping fish, or who have children who enjoy the natural world. A great koi pond acts as a natural, beautiful environment for your fish – especially if you decorate your pond with the right water flowers, lilies, and other plants.

  1. Outdoor Cooking Areas

Who doesn’t love a backyard BBQ? A great, dedicated outdoor cooking area is a fantastic addition to your patio. Outdoor cooking areas help you host better parties and events – especially if you integrate your cooking area with the lounge or dining area of your patio.

Your outdoor cooking area can be as simple – or elaborate – as you want. You can choose from simple designs with charcoal grills, or even fully-functioning outdoor kitchens with refrigeration, gas grills, and dedicated food preparation countertops!

The choice is yours – and there’s always going to be an outdoor cooking area that will fit your needs, and your budget!
