Now that you’ve had your paver patio installed, it’s time to consider what else you’d like to create the perfect outdoor oasis. What’s the point of having a patio if there’s nothing on it? Naturally, you can get the extras like chairs and a table, a grill, and more, but there are other structural and fun options to choose from when it comes to building a great outdoor space. Here are just a few ways you can deck out your patio and enjoy it to its full potential.
“Adding a gazebo with a roof and screens can give you an area to sit and unwind”
Adding Some Shade To The Situation: If your backyard doesn’t have many shade trees, or a large enough porch, you can extend you space to include a relaxing area, out of the sun. Adding a gazebo with a roof and screens can give you an area to sit and unwind, while keeping bugs at bay. A pergola has an open roof to allow sunlight in, but there are still spots for someone to sit comfortably. Again a screen can be added to help keep out bugs and a removable cover can be added as well so there’s the choice of how much sunlight comes in.
Get Grilling: Adding an outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors right in the comfort of your home. Entertain friends and family, while cooking a delicious grilled meal right on your paver patio.

“A firepit is a great way to bring friends and family together.”
Add a Fire Pit for Fun Nights: A firepit is a great way to bring friends and family together. Plus, your firepit can double as a grill, too! Another great thing about fire pits is that they actually keep the bugs away.
Extra Storage: Not sure where to store all of your outdoor toys and activities? Build a shed! A shed can be where everything is put such as the lawnmower, the hose, car cleaning products, and much more! Take it one step further, and build a shed to house all of your kid’s toys, and make it easily accessible for them.

“A garage can be a great addition!”
Bonus Build: A Place For The Car – A garage can be a great addition! It’ll protect your car from the weather and give an extra spot for any storage that’s needed. This could be in addition to the shed or it could be a shed/garage combo.
