I think patios are a better choice than decks. Patios last longer, require less maintenance, and allow greater design options than decks. Concrete is the most common material used for patios. Probably because it's relatively inexpensive, and builders use it extensively (because they won't be living in the house themselves).
Before digging, make sure that you know where all underground utilities are identified. To find out, you can order a "utility locate," by calling 811.
Patio Umbrellas provide shade from sun and rain, besides adding that touch of glamour. At same time umbrellas, along with other patio furniture, need care and maintenance to be usable for several years. The practical way to go about it is to purchase Patio Umbrella Covers, depending on the size of the umbrella and storage space. When not in use, umbrellas can be stacked standing in basement or garage. But if they are going to be left out in the open then a cover is a must. The cover sizes range from small to extra large and generally have a sewn-in wand for easy fixing.
If it's more than a grill and a place to eat, draw it (or have it drawn) on paper, using accurate scale of the various components to be sure they will fit.
