Shade sails can be custom made to any size you require, or you can combine a number of smaller ones to cover a larger area (the solution you choose will depend partly on your site, and partly on your budget). Shade sails work by a tension system - the sails, often triangular in shape, are anchored to tension points which may be attached to the walls of the dwelling or to the tops of poles sunk into the ground. They have the advantage of being portable: if you sell your home, you can move the sail to your new home and reinstall it for the price of new tension points.

You may want to make sure you have some quality chairs to sit in, some pretty flowers to smell, and a beautiful iron fire pit to look at.

You have to consider all the pros and cons to choose the right material for your needs and situation. Wood can give these structures a natural and rustic look. You have the option to add paint or stain to change the appearance of the wood at any time. This material is usually more cost effective, but it will not last as long as vinyl or metal.

There are electric patio heaters that can plug directly into an outlet (but not many, unless that outlet is dedicated just for this). When it is evident that the style and power needed is more than what can be plugged in, you have to consider the cost to have an electrician run wiring just for the patio heater. And with this type, you can also be strapped to where it can be placed to provide the heat you are looking for. Some are ceiling (or rafter) mounted and their base allows for some movement to direct heat to a specific spot.

Stones that are 18'x18' or 24\"x24\" create attractive designs. The stone pattern may be laid perpendicular to the house, or it may be on a diagonal. This stone also may be wet laid or dry laid. If dry laid, try to keep the joints between 1/4\" and 3/8\" for a tighter fit. You have a little bit more flexibility in joint size if setting the stones in mortar.
