Consumers used to request either a deck or a patio. In Charlotte, we began seeing demand for designs utilizing both a deck and a patio in the same backyard about 4 years ago. It is common place to have multiple outdoor living spaces requested for various reasons.
Pavestone is popular brand of paver that we use at Archadeck of Charlotte along with Belgard brand pavers. The reason for multiple spaces include that you may want furniture on one level and your outdoor kitchen or grill on a different. You have to consider the grade of your lot when you think about a patio. Many times the deck comes off of your back door and then you find a flat spot in the yard that provides a good level area and design a unique set of stairs that lead you to the patio like the one below!
Charlotte has ideal year around outdoor living conditions and this is a factor that leads people to want multiple outdoor living spaces as they choose to spend more and more of their free time living outdoors on their deck and patio! To see more, click through to http://www.charlotte.archadeck.com
