Like any large city, the greater Kansas City area has many homes with smaller backyards. Fortunately, concrete patio design can be developed in such as way as to make the most of these smaller spaces. Concrete can be made to look like stone, slate or marble, and it can be polished or given the appearance of large or small bricks. Pre-cut pavers are also an excellent choice for a patio, and homeowners can enjoy the sensation of an Italian Palazzo or woodsy retreat in their own backyard. A good concrete company can give suggestions and offer examples of their work.
Patterned Bluestone: This stone is rectilinear in shape. You may use stone that is all one size or it may be a combination of sizes. Stones that are 18'x18' or 24\"x24\" create attractive designs. The stone pattern may be laid perpendicular to the house, or it may be on a diagonal. This stone also may be wet laid or dry laid. If dry laid, try to keep the joints between 1/4\" and 3/8\" for a tighter fit. You have a little bit more flexibility in joint size if setting the stones in mortar.
Classic pergolas and arches are very effective objects to use if you want to add an inviting feel to your garden and preserve the shade. Pergolas are made with a flatted top with a shape that is vertical to straight sides and can be small to cover up a walkway or large enough to cover a patio or deck area. On the other hand, the arches are generally used as fence gate or over walkways.
Concrete Patio Design - Transforming Kansas City! Much like anything else, a concrete patio design can be as individual and unique as the contents of a home. Thanks to the advent of inexpensive and highly adaptable concrete applications, a patio can evolve in almost any way the homeowner wishes. Kansas City is an area of the Midwest where there are very hot summers followed by very cold and wet winters. This means that concrete may be the best choice for any patio, as it is sturdy, easy to clean and practically impervious to the elements. Additionally, it is easy to add effects or to use in tight spaces.
There are a number of ways you can remodel or transform a concrete pad. Some factors you need to consider include your budget, the condition of the existing concrete, and how much disruption you're willing to tolerate. If the concrete is in excellent condition, for example, then you may want to simply stain the surface, or perhaps give it a textured coating. These options are quickly and easily performed by a specialized contractor.
