5 Elements of the Perfect Patio

By Root Plus on April 16, 2015 in Interlock, Seasonal

The perfect patio combines all the elements you need to enjoy family time, entertain guests and have some well deserved R&R. Here are five elements to the perfect patio:

Interlock Stones

It is not always necessary to create a wood deck to enjoy your garden space. Instead, you can have a lovely patio using interlock stones. Interlock stones provide an interesting design element to your patio and can be used in a combination of sizes, shapes and colours to create a unique one of a kind pattern to suit your taste.


What patio would be complete without the addition of a BBQ area to prepare meals al fresco? Your patio demands a stainless steel outdoor cooker ready to fire up for delicious meals everyone will love. Outdoor cooking has grown with feverish proportions and is “the” number one feature of any outdoor space. You can look at creating built in areas such as counter space and bars using interlock stones as the finishing touch. This will add a more substantial look to your outdoor kitchen area.


You can create retaining walls that offer double duty for seating using interlock stone. This is the perfect complement to your lawn furniture and is ideal to accommodate guests when entertaining. You can keep a storage trunk filled with comfy outdoor pillows for guests to place on the walls for added comfort.

Fire Pit

Many homeowners are adding a gas or wood burning fire features to their patio. Interlock stones is the perfect detail to provide a uniform look to a fire pit. Design a circle of seating using your stone as well as a decorative protective circle to contain the blaze. Fire pits are ideal for three season use and more outdoor time under the stars.

Flowers Beds

Interlock stones are the perfect detail to add built in flower beds for your patio. You will maintain the finished, uniformed look and also have ideal drainage and security for your flower beds. This is the perfect spot for both perennials and annuals. Flower beds offer a decorative touch ideal to separate your patio from a pool, lawn or play area of your back yard.

The perfect patio contains all of the conveniences you need for comfortable outdoor living with the lovely design details to create a restful, enjoyable living space.
