Default Our Yard Makeover - Part 2 - New Patio

Here is a sketch of our new patio. At east I hope this is the way it turns out. The concrete guy came by today and took measurements.

Basically, the patio will be 16x16 ' rounded off in one corner. A walkway will tie into our existing sidewalk near the gate. I will build a new gate after the concrete is poured. He is sending pics of stamped concrete projects he has done. Hopefully, it will turn out nice.

And my new BBQ pellet cooker was delayed but will be delivered tomorrow! Whoopee!

Our yard makeover is looking better every day.
Mike

Mike - looks like a nice layout - nice job on the fence too. I'm presuming you're going to put some patio furniture into that back corner (seating area)?
When we had our driveway done years ago, we opted for the stamped concrete - looks much better than asphalt or plain concrete. Not sure what your climate is like year round, but up here with our winters (southern Ontario) we get spalling caused by freeze-thaw cycles. I've tried sealing the driveway, but it doesn't really help.

I'm liking it. Like the rounded areas on the patio as I've seen it before and it looks great

Nice looking patio. Here is an idea for a gate Mike. Looking out of our patio. Made this gate 3 years ago.
Fence is now painted white.

Nice plan.

I have a bunch of that stuff going on right now myself. As I type there is a crew busting up a sidewalk in the back yard.
They'll put in new next week (I hope).

Vince, about your stamped concrete, do you remember how much more it cost to have it stamped as opposed to just brushed?

It's been quite a few years, but I don't think I got two quotes, just the stamped version.

But, my driveway is about 80 feet, double wide and at that time it was about $15 K, if that helps. Canadian, of course

Did you have it stained too? I bet it looks nice!

Sorry Mike, I didn't mean to take over your thread.

That's a good Sketchup so I bet the concrete guy will be able to tell what you want.

Looks real nice. For lawn furniture, you could go to the junk yard and get some old school bus seats.
