You can even plant a Japanese maple in a pot. Cultivar ‘Sango-kaku’ features coral-red young branches with finely dissected leaves that turn golden yellow in the autumn.
Small spaces may not be as generous as you would like. Consider adding some raised flower beds to give your patio a pop of colour. A painted planter makes the area look bigger. Fire pits are a garden must-have right now. Another great addition to your patio is a fire pit. If you are planning on using your garden as a dining area, you should consider a fire pit.

A terraced or elevated patio can be made of decking, a lightweight material that is easy on the eyes. While traditional deck ideas used first-generation hardwoods, modern designs use eco-products and composite materials. Unlike paving, wooden decking harmonises with the surrounding landscape. It is also easier to build and allows you to build two separate zones. Creating a different zone in your garden with contrasting materials will help you make the most of your space.
