A patio can be an extension of your home right in the outdoors. With so many different material styles to choose from, we understand how exciting and challenging it can be for you. 

If you’re interested in installing the best material for your outdoor patio, you’re in the right place! That’s why we’ve compiled a list of our top four preferred patio materials.

The Top 4 Patio Materials:

1. Paver Patio

Pavers are the strongest and long-lasting material in the market. They stand up well against all elements and won’t deteriorate from everyday wear and tear. Pavers come in a variety of patterns, shapes, and colors to compliment your property’s characteristics.

2. Natural Stone Patio

Natural stone is the most natural, organic looking material due to their shape and earthy shades of browns, reds, grays and blues. A patio made with natural stone is durable and naturally slip-resistant that will last for years. To create a natural look, you can grow moss or grass between the stones.

3. Wood Patio

A patio made with wood gives the ultimate cozy backyard setting. Wood is a great material because it holds a natural, authentic look. Additionally, wood doesn’t warp and is less prone to rot and insect damage. With proper care, a wooden patio can last for many years!

4. Pea Gravel Patio

A patio made with pea gravel lends itself perfectly to many other cool, fun elements such as a fire pit, outdoor furniture and string lights. Although hardscaping materials like pavers and natural stone are solid, reliable surfaces, they can be expensive. For a more economical option, pea gravel is a great choice because it is far less prone to clump and retain footprints.
