This is ideal because it probably will be the cheapest to operate and you don’t have to worry about it running out of fuel, that is unless there is a major earthquake near you and gas lines erupt. Of course, if that’s the case, running your patio heater is not the main concern then, or at least I hope it’s not. But then, if you make the choice to go with a natural gas operated patio heater, you lose the flexibility of placing the heater at different places depending on a particular function.

You can intermingle the ceramic tiles with wooden ones, to create interesting designs. For example, you might like to have ceramic tiles underneath your table and chairs, with a wood surround. Add a few plants in pots, and your boring old concrete patio will be totally transformed.

Allow an extra 6-8 inches beyond the furthest dimensions of the patio to provide a firm base for the entire area of pavers and to allow for minor adjustments during the laying and cutting in of the pavers. Place stakes at the edges of the markings and attach a string line to the stakes at the final height.

The cloths are long lasting and tough, making damage from wind or storm unlikely. The closeness of the weave creates different levels of protection against the sun, giving the consumer yet more choice about the amount of protection desired - and cost, too.

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.

These can cope with a certain amount of cracking in the underlying concrete, without being affected. They're easy to install by just clicking them into place. Once laid, they stay firmly in place and don't need any special surface preparation, adhesives or other fixings. They have a plastic base to allow water to pass easily underneath, and to keep the wood away from the sub-surface. You can tile your whole patio area in only an hour or two.

In that case you can lay porcelain or stone tiles over the top, to give an elegant finish to your patio. It's a good idea to use tiles with a textured finish, to reduce the risk of slipping when the tiles are wet. You can use other materials such as sandstone, limestone, granite or slate, as long as they are properly sealed. If you often have freezing conditions over winter, then ensure the tiles don't absorb high levels of water, or they might crack. Be aware, too, that existing cracks in the concrete may expand and cause the tiles on top to crack as well.

All blue is where the stones are \"blue\" with little color variation. Full range is my favorite. There is a mix of colors within each stone consisting of blue, gold-brown (from iron) and some other tones.
