What type of patio should I buy?

Patios can extend your living space. A patio can be the perfect place for dinner parties, but before you can start building your patio, you have to decide your patio design – especially its shape. Patios are unique because their design is limitless – you don’t need to shape it according to the walls and ceilings. They don’t conform to the standard box like shape. You have a lot of freedom and choice on what shape you would like your patio to be.
