A patio can be created with many materials, but it’s hard to beat one made from pavers for ease of installation and low maintenance. The initial cost may be higher than other options, but you’ll save in the long run by not having to stain or seal it continuously. Plus, repairs are easier, one paver at a time.
Your plan for using a patio or walkway helps determine the location, but also consider how your project will affect sight lines from windows and doors. Avoid areas near large trees — the roots are difficult to deal with, and damaging them could harm the trees.
