With Labor Day just a few weeks away, it’s almost that time of year for us to start gearing up for the cooler temps of those fall Georgia evenings on the back porch that we all seem to love so much. Whether you’re just popping out for a few to watch the sunset from your back porch after a hard day’s work or entertaining friends and family with a full-blown weekend cookout, there’s no doubt that a proper outdoor space makes a huge difference in not only increasing our living space, but enhancing the lives that we live. Here are a few things to consider adding to your back patio to kickstart your outdoor living.
A few key pieces of outdoor furniture are all that are necessary to create the comfy, cozy space you desire on your back patio. A few chairs or even an outdoor sofa with weatherproof mesh fabric are really all that’s necessary to create a conversation space where you can relax and unwind in the company of visitors. For added convenience, add a table or two to hold drinks or anything else. Be sure to include some low-cost lighting such as torches or string lights to set the proper mood.
While we’re talking about gathering on the back patio, it’s hard to make a case against a modest fire pit. Whether you opt for a professionally designed and built stacked stone fire pit or a smaller ready-to-assemble model, fire pits are a year-round favorite for gathering with good friends and family and enjoying the clear night sky or hanging out and roasting marshmallows or making s’mores with the kids, regardless of the outdoor temperature.
The Patio Itself
Of course, quite literally, the foundation of any proper outdoor area is the patio itself. That’s right - the concrete slab. Not only does decorative concrete beautify your space with a stamped or patterned look that mimics another material such as rock, brick, flagstone, wood, or other material, but it also rehabs your current slab, bringing it back to proper structural integrity. As versatile as it is beautiful, decorative concrete can be installed and artfully finished in an array of colors to match any decor.
