How about a grid-like patio with a cement base adorned using ceramic & fine stone accents?


To have something like this one, micro-cement is ideal due to its easy adaptability to any design -- special chemical additives allow detailing in different colors & finishes.


Special varnished outdoor wood is an excellent option to give a warm & elegant appearance to the patio.


Using river stone is an original & stylish way to inject the bucolic feel of an artisanal work which combines angularly arranged stones of varying sizes.


Paving stones are an excellent choice for walkways through the garden and patio floor; placing them on an already shaped & leveled floor base is fast & convenient.


Wood and grass form the perfect combination for a palliative design offering a very relaxed natural environment with ample warmth.

For simple gardens without much of greens, river stone & slabs of flagstone can be used to create a walkway around a fountain or lead to a seating area meant for relaxing.


If you dig natural stones, stone slabs in a wide variety of sizes & shapes can be combined to form an interesting floor and even an accent wall.


Synthetic grass is a time-saving, practically zero maintenance quick solution for an outdoor floor finish.


Ceramic tiles are a classic; care should be taken to ensure that they are anti-slip textured and weather- resistant.


Creative blend of colors & textures—gray stones in different textures, shades & hardness combined to give the floor a jazzy look.


The special allure & elegance of marble rings in a soft dash of color alongside highlighting the soothing greenery surrounding it.


Delightful rusticity bedecks this ingenious design, wherein pieces of clay have been intentionally placed irregularly with their joints, lending a unique style.


Using big concrete squares in a grid format and gravel, bricks or paving stones to mark the edges/ joints between the squares, a simplistic floor design can be created.


Concrete and vegetation—stretches of regularly pruned grass alternating with thin strips of concrete, that matches the pergola design, can result in a very original floor.
