The Patio, A Space Bay Area Homeowners Should Enjoy Year RoundNovember 25th, 2020 | by paver_guys
If you’ve recently installed a beautiful new concrete paver patio or are considering the addition of this functional space for your Bay Area home, consider it’s a space you can take advantage of no matter what time of year it is! Many homeowners use their patios only during spring and summer months, but considering our region and climate it’s easy to make use of your patio throughout the year.
Grilling dinner on the patio, having guests over for conversation and drinks, or just enjoying the outdoors with family and friends is something you can do any time of the years, particularly when you make the space comfortable and suitable regardless of the season. For example, a covered patio allows you to enjoy your paver patio even when it’s raining, which we know is common in the Bay Area. On those nights when the air is a bit on the chilly side, everyone can gather around a beautiful, warm fire pit to enjoy the company and atmosphere.
During the warmer summer months you can enjoy your patio by adding a sun shade or pergola to block the heat of the sun, helping your enjoy a comfortable space while cooking on the grill or just relaxing with friends or family. You may even want to consider a drink station stocked with soda, bottled water or even beer and other “adult” beverages for your enjoyment. Make some lemonade or ice tea, and everyone can enjoy a relaxing outdoor experience without going back and forth to the kitchen inside the house!
We’ve already mentioned a firepit for cooler evenings, however there are heaters that provide warmth when it’s cool outside as well. Imagine a gorgeous outdoor fireplace flanked by beautiful stone where your senses are engaged not only by the warmth to your skin, but the sounds and scent of a crackling fire.
From retaining walls for extra seating to pergolas, fire pits and outdoor kitchens, there are so many ways to enjoy your interlocking concrete paver patio no matter the season! At The Paver Guys, we transform outdoor spaces into those that are comfortable, inviting and functional for homeowners in the Bay Area. Give us a call now!
