Patios add functional outdoor square footage to a backyard, and reduce the area that require maintenance. We like to use stone for our patios, our favorite choice is Bluestone due to its texture and workability. They are usually constructed on a gravel base as opposed to a concrete slab to allow for water to percolate through them instead of running off. They also last longer that way as even a well built slab eventually cracks and is difficult to repair.
