Garden Patio Ideas

Posted: 23/04/2013 at 14:21

With the weather finally improving,  I am keen to get in the garden and start tinkering around, as I am sure everyone else is.

I have been looking at ways to improve my patio and came across this: http://www.house-extension.co.uk/garden-patio-ideas-10-tips-to-decorate-and-furnish-your-patio/

It offers some good ideas on ways decorate the patio.

However I am always keen to hear peoples suggestions on here as they usually come up with something I haven't considered before.

So please can you offer some great ideas to create a stylish patio area.
