Most patios extend directly off the home. However, one way to add functional and beautiful features to a home is to add small patios in or surrounded by gardens in the yard. These can be in addition to a main patio or be the sole patio.
While most people looking for garden patio ideas are looking for ways to create a patio in a garden, some people want ideas for adding garden features on an existing patio such as potted plants, bushes, planters and more.
Other ways to incorporate gardens into a patio setting is by creating gardens around the edges of a patio.
What’s great about most of our featured patios is they aren’t all that elaborate and relatively easy to create (without breaking your budget).
Our garden patio gallery features all 3 types (in a garden, with garden elements on the patio and gardens wrapped around patios).
The sky really is the limit when it comes to your options for creating sitting areas in your yard.
Whether you’re looking for patio ideas featuring patios with fire pits, small patio ideas, or patio decorating ideas…this special gallery is sure to inspire your next project!
