Types of Outdoor Patios

When designing your custom patio, there are a few flooring options you can choose from, including:

  • Brick: Brick allows you to create patterns such as herringbone, alternating bricks on a 90-degree angle, or a pinwheel design, which forms a square with four regular-sized bricks and a half brick in the middle.
  • Tile: Looking for something with a unique sense of beauty? Ceramic and porcelain tiles make for a distinctive patio.
  • Poured concrete: Made of cement, sand, gravel, and water, poured concrete is a manipulative semi-liquid that can be formed into almost any shape or size. With this versatile yet simple option, you can create a specifically shaped patio and add landscaping around the concrete to spruce it up.
  • Concrete pavers: These can be compared to a mix of poured concrete and brick. Concrete pavers are made of dense concrete compacted to form individual pieces that mimic brick or stone — but for a lower price. Paver patio installation is a great choice for homeowners on a budget or with small spaces for a patio.
  • Stone: For a picture-perfect look, consider installing a stone patio. Stone looks beautiful when contrasted with nature because of its natural hues. This patio flooring option is also one of the most durable, which is a major benefit since it needs to withstand the elements.

In addition to these hardscaping options, we can also build awnings and other structures to create covered patio designs that keep your family shaded and cool.

A professionally designed patio offers more advantages than creating a beautiful space to enjoy your backyard. A few of these benefits include:

  • Increased property value: If you ever put your northern Virginia home on the market, the addition of a well-designed patio will likely increase your home’s value.
  • Expanded living space: Ever throw a gathering at your house that was a bit too cramped? With an outdoor patio, there’s more room for your guests to mingle. A patio essentially gives you another room during the long summers.
  • Reduced energy cost: By adding an outdoor living space, you can save on your summer cooling bills. After all, you’re not adding all that cooking heat to your kitchen since you’ll be outside grilling.

Patio Installation FAQs

How much does it cost to install a patio?

The cost of patio installation depends on several factors, including the size, materials, options, add-ons you select, and the amount of labor involved.

A small, basic patio made from concrete or pavers may be relatively inexpensive, while a large patio with slate, flagstone, bench seating, or an outdoor kitchen may be significantly more costly.

For an accurate quote, talk to our experts about the features and options you’d like to include.

Can I install a patio in a small backyard?

Yes, a patio can be installed even in a small backyard — with careful planning and preparation, as well as a good design. At Wheat’s Landscape, our experts can design the ideal patio for your yard, large or small, and help you select the best options for your needs and budget.

Is a permit required to install a patio?

It depends on the size and scope of the job, as well as the local rules and regulations for your home in the DC area. If the patio requires only laying down a few pavers and minor landscaping, a permit may not be necessary.

If the grade has to be changed, retaining walls added, stairs are required, or other major changes are necessary, a permit may be required.

At Wheat’s Landscape, we can determine if a permit is required and work with you to ensure everything is done according to local codes and regulations.

How will a patio affect my backyard?

Besides creating a dedicated space to enjoy your yard and entertain friends, a patio can affect how your yard drains and the runoff that occurs during a storm. A skilled designer is required to ensure that your patio will not cause water damage to your home or erosion in your yard.

At Wheat’s Landscape, our team will design and install your patio while taking great care to ensure it drains effectively and won’t damage your yard or surrounding structures.
