Delaware Landscaping - How to Build a Hardscape Patio: This article provides an overview of the process used in creating a hardscape brick paver patio. The basic supplies needed include the selected pavers, crushed stone, paver base, long 1 inch conduit pipes, leveling board, and edge restraints. Tools needed include a compactor, cutoff saw, shovels, etc. We explain the basic steps, giving some basic knowledge that is useful if selecting a contractor to do the \"heavy lifting,\" so you'll know what questions to ask.

Patios are also a hub for family-centered activities: a place for meals; for children to play; for lengthy conversations that lead to important decisions; and for friends to gather outside around the barbecue.
Metal is a good material because it is very long lasting and durable. Steel and iron usually rust easily, but aluminum is a rust-free material that is strong and lightweight.
However, it is possible to have too much sun. Patio awnings allow you to enjoy the sun's warmth without becoming burned by the sun, and provide protection against passing showers too. Patio awnings, canopies or shades are a very useful addition to your outdoor comfort.
Natural Shaped Bluestone: Building a patio out of this type of stone will result in an irregular paving pattern, which can be very attractive. The stones may be set in mortar or they may be dry laid. If dry laid, the joints can get quite wide due to the uneven edges of the stones, but can be filled with sand or a material that hardens over time. The edges of the patio are usually curvilinear or straight, but they can also be designed so that the outer stone edges become the patio edge.
