Patio Landscaping Ideas

Patio landscaping ideas often include features to compliment, navigate, or soften your patio. They also help transition the patio to other features in your yard.

For example, a decorative rock border may compliment the patio.

Stepping stones may help navigate from the patio to other parts of the yard, and shrubs will soften the patio.

Just click on any patio landscaping photo to open a gallery slideshow of all the photos on this page.

Remember that you can control the flow of traffic and one's eye.

You can do this by the way these features are planned in and around the patio.

Patio landscaping can also include features that are built into the patio like a firepit, outdoor kitchen, or hot tub.

We hope this section of patio landscaping pictures will give you some ideas for your dream yard. Enjoy!

This would be considered an informal look with stones

This would be considered an informal look with stones "placed" rather than
"cut to fit". Many people prefer this look with flagstone walkways and patios to add more character to their designs. Different coloured
pieces to fill in
the smaller gaps also has a nice effect.

A multi-level patio was built with stairs wrapping around both sides to blend in the patio to the existing slope in this yard. Limestone rock was also used to transition the stairs to a water feature on one side and the grass on the other.
