One more surfacing option is the use of timber! Using grass or stone is fine if you have an outdoor patio in your backyard. But if your patio is an extension of your house, it needs good wood decking. You can either opt for hardwood decking or softwood decking. There's no difference in the wood's durability (there's another reason why they are classified as hard or soft; hardwood comes from slow growing trees, whereas softwood comes from faster growing trees!), softwood is just cheaper than hardwood.
Use a scouring brush or fine-grit sandpaper to remove signs of rust, after letting white vinegar sit (leave it on for a couple of hours) on the metal to help dislodge the rust. In case of heavy rusting, opt for commercial rust removers, followed by using a rust-proof primer and a metal-toned spray paint for a good-as-new finish.
Electric heaters are one of the most convenient patio heaters as you don't need to worry about filling gas or propane. These heaters are unaffected by the wind and get heated instantly. They also have infrared heaters under this category. It is environment friendly and requires very less or no maintenance. The only drawback of these heaters is their corded connections which makes its mobility restricted to the area where you can get them plugged.
If you live in a town which enjoys extreme temperatures and has its fair share of sunlight and rain, then having a patio umbrella to provide you shade from these extremities of weather is a good idea. There are several ways in which you can use patio umbrellas. You can use it to shade a spot near the swimming pool or as shade for your garden table. Cafe shop owners often use them to create shaded spots for customers to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee under. Patio umbrellas have the ability transform the way any space looks, completely adding an appeal of a summer garden to it. You can get these either at a neighborhood home furnishings store or you can learn to make it at home.
