Read on to learn a few deck and patio ideas for small outdoor areas:

1. Built-in Storage

Homeowners with large landscapes have the luxury of building expansive decks and patios without having to think about storage solutions. But with small a backyard, access to built-in storage is almost as vital as having space to entertain friends and family.

Fortunately, deck and patio storage can be incorporated seamlessly as part of the design. We can use elements of the deck or patio structure to disguise or hide drawers, lockers, and cupboards.

2. Smart Seating

Pennsylvania’s winds can wreak havoc on outdoor seating, causing your favorite garden chair to relocate to your neighbor’s prized flowerbeds. Including deck seating as part of your new deck or patio design not only will alleviate the headache of fishing your furniture from ponds and fronds, but it will also help maximize space while minimizing clutter.

3. Perfect Proportions

A deck or patio that dwarfs your backyard is only going to look awkward. By the same token, an outdoor entertainment area that is too small will disappear into the greenery of your landscape. Finding the right proportion is a tricky equation that requires decades of experience and accumulated knowledge. Fortunately, our pros have spent more than 25 years transforming outdoor spaces, equipping them with the training, expertise, and tools to design and build a patio that will complement both your home’s architecture and landscape.
