Patios and decks don’t just add value and a fresh-looking aesthetic to your home; they also increase the amount of outdoor space you can enjoy. By installing a patio or deck, you’re adding an area that can be used for dining, gatherings, and relaxation. Whether you’re entertaining guests or hoping to enjoy an afternoon or evening to yourself, these spaces can optimize those experiences.
Why Build a Custom Patio or Deck?
VistaPro Landscape & Design specializes in designing and building custom patios and decks, catering each design to the customer’s space and individual needs. Our experts have a decade of experience planning for both types of structures and will be able to identify which will be most effective for your property and budget.
But why build a patio or deck in the first place? Here are a few reasons:
- Comfort: Depending on how you design them, patios and decks can offer a comfortable floor space to walk on, often preferable to uneven concrete or grass
- Protection: Adding roofing or screening can also provide shade from the elements and protection from pests and insects, delivering an outdoor experience without any of the negatives
- Return-On-Investment: The additional square footage is also likely to appeal to home buyers and boost the price of your property down the line.
Patios vs. Decks
Patios differ from decks in that they are typically directly on the ground. If you have uneven terrain in your yard, this may not be the optimal choice. However, if you do have even land, patios can prove a useful, relaxing space that can be attached or separate from your home.
Unlike patios, decks are typically raised from the ground, making them an option regardless of how even your land is. Decks are attached to the home and typically don’t have any roofing. Read more about maintenance for decks throughout the year.
