Patio, as it is situated next to the house, is surrounded on all sides by a light decorative fence with a gate, which is better to do two-step (door type) – it visually enhances the space. On the inside of the fence in the area of the lounge corner flowerbeds lifted high above the ground can be made of red brick, in the middle of the patio a decorative fountain can be designed, surrounded by flower garden and along the posterior wall – light canopy coated of corrugated plastic, which where you can shelter from the sun or rain. On both sides of the canopy you can make flowerbeds and pave the whole patio with concrete tiles.
On the patio you can build a fireplace with benches and a wall-mounted canopy- tent from the sun and rain. Design of these inner yards can vary; without fencing it can be performed in free architectural forms, but in all cases it should include not only functional but also aesthetic orientation.
Depending on the patio project you should choose a material. Wood and polycarbonate are very popular. The roof (or canopy) of polycarbonate is made in those cases when you need a large amount of light. For example, if you want to do a winter garden on the veranda or just because you like it. It should be noted that polycarbonate can be not only cellular which is so familiar to the eye. There are also waveform and monolithic kinds. Monolithic polycarbonate looks no different from the glass, but it weighs less. About the features and capabilities of different materials you will learn on.
Canopies made of wood take fancy of those who prefer natural materials. Making wood canopies with your own hands requires much less effort. And indeed, many men have a skill to make something with their own hands exactly out of the tree ‘in their blood’.
It is not necessary to make a solid canopy, because with the help of wooden crates you can achieve beautiful game of light and shade.
If you do not like wood – you can glass your patio: in whole or in part.
Polycarbonate is now very widely used in the construction: it is used in cases when it is required for an object to pass light. This definition includes greenhouses, verandas and interior gardens with a “glass” roof. When compared with glass, polycarbonate has more advantages. And it weighs less. And the economic benefits of its acquisition, as they say, are “plain to see”.
Polycarbonate is a cellular, solid and corrugated (waveform). Each of these species has approximately the same properties.
