What Makes a Perfect Patio?


<< More From Moss Building & Design




Dear Moss Building & Design,

I can’t wait to spend time outside this coming summer! Any tips on what makes a perfect patio?


Dear Dulles Mom,

With the promise of summer ahead, you may be thinking about how to improve your outdoor spaces. There are a few guaranteed ways to make the perfect patio.

Gotta’ Have a Grill
Maybe you’ve been putting off replacing your old, rusty charcoal — now is the time to buy! Break in a portable charcoal, char-boil or entire grill center. Having a brand new grill will make you want to go out and enjoy your patio.

Dining Outdoors
Make sure your patio is equipped with a dining set that makes sense according to your lifestyle. Planning on having large summer BBQs? Look for longer, family-style tables with plenty of seating.

Add Some Accents
Make your patio homey with some warm touches. Literally. Try installing a fire pit in your patio as a space to gather after dinner and into the evening.
