urban townhome patio
I just moved into this urban townhome and I want to make the patio look great. It currently has a stamped concrete pad filling most of the surface. The surrounding material is decomposed granite. I want to do something *very* low maintenance because there's no gate in/out - the majority of the surface should have something that weeds cannot grow on.
Here's a sketch of the layout and pics from inside and outside:
Some ideas that I like so far:
- A flower bed along the back fence created with a permanent stone border (pavers?).
- A tree on the left side inside a circular border of the same material.
- River rocks on top of the remaiing surface. Or pavers with monkey grass in between.
