Planning a Custom Patio
There’s no right or wrong way to design a patio. But your yard probably has some restrictions that need to be considered before you can implement a creative patio design. Before you begin planning your patio, consider the following questions:
- Does my yard have any hills or slopes? If so, the size of your patio may be restricted. Leveling yards to install a patio is a costly and tedious process.
- Would you violate any restrictions or ordinances? Some patio projects, depending on their size and what features they have, can require approval from your city, county, or homeowners association. Be sure to check all relevant codes and ordinances prior to starting your patio installation process! Or, simply use the experts at Four Seasons! We can take care of all the bureaucracy for you.
- What other features do you want on your patio? If you want other features in your patio, like an outdoor kitchen, a fire pit, or any other advanced landscaping feature, it’s best to add structure during the construction of your patio. Make sure you have a wish list of features, and we can give you an accurate estimate on any of our great patio-friendly landscaping features.
Of course, during the whole process, you’ll have the help of Four Seasons’ landscaping experts at your side to help you make these decisions.
How to Design a Stunning Outdoor Patio
Your patio should be the centerpiece of your backyard. With the ability to completely customize your patio, the design options are endless! But what if you want something truly outside the box? Well, Four Seasons can help with that, too! Some of our favorite unique patio ideas are:
- Tiers. A patio can be molded into multiple levels, creating a beautiful tiered look.

- Built-in seating. Your patio can be molded to have seating built right in! Line the edge of your patio with stone benches, or have a fire pit area that’s unified with the patio.
