The start of August is always a jolt–summer vacation is winding down, back to school sales are ramping up, and we are all trying to make the most of these beautiful days. And while Dig Right In works hard protecting our natural resources, we also know that time is the most precious, valuable resource in your life.

There’s no better way to maximize time spent in your yard–entertaining friends, spending quality time with your family, or escaping for some peace and quiet–than with a patio. Consider it an extension of your home and a way to spend more time outdoors.

If you’re thinking about a new patio, consider this:

  • Architecture: Create a patio that syncs with your home’s architectural style. Also take architecture into consideration when choosing your patio materials and even your patio furniture.
  • Function: How will you use your patio? Do you entertain frequently? Do you need shade from the sun, comfy seats for reading in, wheelchair accessibility?
  • Amenities: Would you like a built-in fire pit, custom built planters, space for a bbq grill or a water table for young kids?
  • Decor: Personalize your patio with string lights, (we love these popular lights), outdoor rugs, throw pillows, furniture, container plants, bird feeders, and anything else that makes it feel more like home.
