Before we know it, the Colorado weather will change once again bringing a new season of new activity. For you, maybe the spring means the beginning of those backyard, patio projects.

The best part of a patio is bringing out what really matters to you as a homeowner. There are many options available to build and maintain your backyard. This can include natural elements and man-made elements. At Atlas, we specialize in these construction endeavors, helping to deliver residential projects that truly enhance your property.

There are many resources to help you plan an outside landscaping project. Once you have an idea of the direction you’d like to take, call us to discuss how best to incorporate these features along with your existing or coming concrete or asphalt. Let us help you take steps to building your perfect patio, your area to relax, enjoy company and most of all, your home.

Here some five areas to consider, step-by-step in your patio endeavors:

Plants. Consider the vegetation you plan to have within your patio area. Gardens may consist of plants, flowers, herbs, even vegetables. Creating a garden-like atmosphere also includes many considerations. You can incorporate them as part of the design or add shrubbery as a patio border, use flower boxes, or plant foliage in planters and use them around your patio area.
Atlas Tip: Sometimes it’s better to plan the complete floor layout of your patio, before you begin planting. We can help you plan your gardens around your concrete flatwork and asphalt.

Fire Pit. What better, cozier way to entertain then around a custom-built firepit area on your patio? Great for any season, especially the spring and summer. Firepits come are built in a variety of ways. Sizes vary and there are several different styles of fire pit you can purchase material for to add to your patio.
Atlas Tip: Firepits can be built with many materials for different levels of functionality. Visit our structural concrete page for ideas.

Pergola or Gazebo. Both of these structures add a certain special, quaint feel to your patio or backyard garden. Think of size, utility and building materials you would like. These add an architectural feel to your patio or backyard.
Atlas Tip: Pergolas and Gazebos can be fortified along with your concrete work. Considering this during your concrete construction process is recommended.

Shade. Purchases including sheltered awnings or umbrellas should be considered for your patio, either for the rainy or sunny day. Adding covers to your designscape provides practicality, protection and a comfort element.

Wet Bar. Features like these really take your patio to the next level! There are many varieties of wet bars, including indoor, outdoor, screened-in or tikis.
