Pavers, Concrete, and Wood: Choosing Your Patio Material

A patio gives you a solid, generally unchanging surface on which you can put furniture, play or sports equipment, and other items. The surface of the patio stays intact during rain instead of turning into mud, and you don't have to worry about furniture tilting to one side due to runoff creating eroded pathways through the surface. Choosing a patio surface requires thought because the surface you get will come with specific maintenance and repair issues.
