Create a patio – even if you don’t have a designated patio area, you don’t need to go to the extreme time and expense of pouring concrete. Using flat stones and sand or gravel is more economical, can be done in less time (no wait for drying), and is also more attractive.

Offer Comfort – an important part of designing an inviting space is to create a comfortable feel. Deep cushions or an assortment of throw pillows can transform any outdoor furniture into an extension of your living room. An outdoor area rug can also create a softer look and balance against the stone patio floor.
Add a fire pit – friends sitting around a fire pit is a very inviting image and creating a fire pit doesn’t have to be an overwhelming job. You need a clear space, free from grass and nearby brush or plants. Use some midsize rocks to build a circular pit with walls about two feet high. Rocks with flat sides will stack more easily. Fill the bottom with sand or gravel and then your wood goes on top. The professionals at Whitewater Rock & Supply can give you additional tips to be sure that it is safe. We also offer a variety of outdoor fire pit kits and accessories.
Light up focal points – adding decorative lighting will also add a warm ambiance. Place brighter lights on focal points such as decorative boulders, and string lights through trees or awnings to create a more intimate setting.
