Small patio ideas

dinosaur1(5)March 30, 2011

We live next to a busy street. Our backyard is lined with blue spruce trees. We have a very small space and I am looking for ideas on how to make it look better without spending thousands.

The other issue is that when we have medium to heavy rains....the carpet along the baseline area along the wall in our rec room covering 3-4 ft is wet.

We think the cement slab was installed incorrectly along the home outside and it also slants towards the home slightly. We don't know if it is better to cut back 12 inches and put in rocks or get rid of the slab entirely.
