Your backyard is an outdoor oasis you can use to get away from the craziness of the day and relax. Having a deck or patio makes that relaxation even better, having a special place to go enjoy a book, or maybe a nice chat with friends over a glass of wine. Patios come in many sizes, shapes, materials, and colors, so there are endless options with the opportunity to get a little creative when getting one installed in your backyard. They can also be used for many purposes, which is why you should carefully think about the size you want your new patio to be.

Finding professionals to install a patio in your Northern Virginia backyard shouldn’t be hard to do. Northern Virginia Landscaping in Manassas is a project-based company who would love to give you the best backyard experience.
Before you hire Northern Virginia Landscaping to complete your project, here is what you should consider when deciding on a size for your patio:

  1. Functionality

In most home improvement projects, you have to think about the functions of what you are building or renovating before continuing with anything else. When it comes to a patio, there are so many possibilities of what you can use it for. Perhaps you will use it mainly for cooking and dining or use it for relaxing by a firepit or just with a book on a hammock. However you decide to use your patio, the size you go with will need to be able to work with its function.

  1. Occupancy

Along with the functions your patio will serve, consider how many people will be using it. Are you going to need a lot of chairs and tables for everyone or will it mostly be you and maybe one other person out there? You don’t want to end up with a patio that’s too small if you host parties or have a big family. Northern Virginia Landscaping Services can help you figure out what size would be best according to what you’ll be doing and how many people will use the patio.

  1. Yard Size

Some homeowners prefer lots of yard space and others do not, because of the maintenance. When you are thinking of installing a patio, ask yourself if you want a lot of grass to do more landscaping, to play with the dog and kids, build a shed, or anything else you might want to do. Trust Northern Virginia Landscaping to know what is best for both you, your patio, and your yard when it comes to designing it.

  1. Shape

Patio shape can affect the size also. If you want a rounded patio, you’ll have more space on the edges. A squared-off patio might be more helpful for cooking and dining, whereas a rounded one might compliment a fire pit better. Take the professional advice from Northern Virginia Landscaping to decide on the best size and shape of a patio for you.
