Deck vs. Patio: Which is the Right Outdoor Space for You?

I’m more of a patio guy….how about you?

When you are doing ground level outdoor entertaining space, which way do you go? Here’s an excellent article on the many variations.   I like the many variations in design and materials on patios but you can’t always do one depending on your lot.  One trend I’m seeing a lot of these days where the topography allows it is people doing a deck with enough height to accommodate a patio underneath.  I love this look and you can finish the underside of the deck in all sorts of cool materials, put up ceiling fans and even screen the area in if you like.  If you are thinking about doing a deck, patio or both give me a holler and I can give you some design options as well as contractor referrals.
