Maintenance-free, grapevine can be threaded through any lattice work you might have outside or you can use white LED lights and intertwine them with the grapevines. Add sprigs of holly, juniper or boxwood to make your patio even more festive!

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.

These can cope with a certain amount of cracking in the underlying concrete, without being affected. They're easy to install by just clicking them into place. Once laid, they stay firmly in place and don't need any special surface preparation, adhesives or other fixings. They have a plastic base to allow water to pass easily underneath, and to keep the wood away from the sub-surface. You can tile your whole patio area in only an hour or two.

Styles are abundant and can be even a central point for your patio, but you will pay a little more for that. Quality to me is king. Why purchase something I am going to need to replace soon and then have to pay even more for. I would rather put off getting one for a time to have the money needed to get the right one, then pay now and later and possibly even not have enough power to provide the heat I am looking for anyway.
