The Q&A Archives: Patio Design

Question: I was just wondering what would be a good radius for a semi circle patio which will serve enough space for a dinning set, a bistro set, a grill, and a deep seating area?

Answer: One way to ensure that your patio is large enough is to pull out your furniture and begin staging the scene. This exercise also can include laying out a garden hose to fit the desired shape of the patio. You can sketch things out on graph paper, making sure you have enough space to walk between the furniture. I suspect that a 14 to 20' arch or semi-circle will be adequate, but you might want to lay out your garden hose just to make sure there is ample space. Good luck with your project!
