Expanding Concrete Patio
We currently want to expand our concrete patio to give us more space, maybe for a hot tub. We have discussed a ground level wood deck, adding an additional concrete slad or using paving stones or something similar. I am currently leaning towards the stone/paver idea.
My question is, if we expand off our slab patio using paver or some other type of stone how "wierd" will that look. My wife does not want me to remove the current concrete patio, but I am not for sure if going the stone route will look good having the two contrast not only in texture, but color etc.
I though about moving the new patio over several feet and having a small garden between the 2. Or my second thought is to slighly elevate the new patio by 1-2 inches.
Anybody have any ideas or experience?
