Provides photographs for various types of patios - from terraces to courtyards, pool decking to multi-level patios and walkways to transitional areas around the home. This book takes a look at the variety of materials - including brick, concrete pavers and stone - that can be used.
Adding a patio or walkway is about more than just carving out a space for a 20-foot by 20-foot square of brick pavers or connecting the front door to the back-garden with flagstone. They need to be stylish and work hard as well, since they are exposed to people, pets and weather of all sorts. This book provides hundreds of inspiring photographs for all types of patios - from terraces to courtyards, pool decking to multi-level patios and walkways to transitional areas around the home. It also takes a close up look at the wide variety of materials - including brick, concrete pavers and stone - that can be used. In addition to the photographs, sidebars and illustrations give sage advice and more detailed information on materials, design and practical considerations.
