The sky is certainly the limit when it comes to creating and designing your own patio that includes your personal functions, features and taste. In order to make the most out of your backyard with a unique patio design, there are a few things you must consider.




When considering the addition of a patio to your outdoor living space it is important to take into consideration the topography and the overall size of your property as well as budget limits you may have. Not all patio designs work for all properties. With that said, we recommend you reach out to one of our consultants or designers to discuss your ideas, address your questions and determine the best design that is suitable to you and your property. You certainly don’t want to put time and money into a build that is not satisfactory to your wants and needs.

Here at Harpeth Valley Hardscapes, we want to help you choose the ideal design and specific features and elements that will best fit your property and your individual needs. There are a number of common designs that many homeowners consider. We have put together some thoughts here on a few of those designs.

  • An Outdoor Dining Area – There is something so comforting and even fun about dining outdoors with family and friends or even just sharing cocktails and pleasant conversation as the sun sets in the evening hours. If you are thinking about putting a dining area on your new patio, be sure to give focus to the space you have and whether or not you plan to cherish the experience with family or plan to host guests often. This is important when it comes time to choose the dining table and chairs you want and determine where you are going to lay out your dining area. It is important to include a buffer from your table edge to the edge of your patio in order to allow room for individuals to sit and dine or to walk about the patio easily.
  • Incorporating an Outdoor Kitchen – If an outdoor kitchen is on your list of dream items, then installing a grill and a food prep area would be ideal. Cooking and dining together are such a spectacular way to share quality times outdoors. You can choose to install a standalone grill or if you want to be a bit more stylish, you can construct a full kitchen area that would include a built-in grill as well as additional burners and even counter top space. Our team stands ready to help with all your important decision making.
  • Design the Perfect Outdoor Bar – An outdoor bar is yet another great addition to many patio designs. What an ideal way to enjoy a drink, quiet time and some relaxation, whether alone or with friends, under the evening stars. When designing your bar, it is important to take into consideration the number of people you would typically want to accommodate before choosing your main bar and stools. Also, be sure to allow for a lower work space beneath the bar where you can prepare your drinks.



A patio can be a magnificent addition to your home and property and customizing your patio with unique features can bring your outdoor living to a whole new level. It is imperative, however, that you make certain the design you choose fits your outdoor living space. A bar on a patio is a perfect way to share quality time on any summer day or night. An outdoor kitchen and combined dining area on your patio can provide you with all the tools you need to host gatherings that are a delight to all your guests. But ensuring the style, size and additional elements suit your outdoor space is an important first step to take.
