Whether you’re looking for a simple backyard patio or a terraced multi-level courtyard, Rhine Landscaping can help you install a hardscaped space that suits your lifestyle and outdoor space while serving as an extension to your home for entertaining and recreation. We use high-quality materials that accentuate the architecture of your house and blend well with your existing environment.

But once our skilled workers and landscape designers leave your space – what will you do to decorate your patio? Patios are astoundingly multi-purpose areas, and they serve as the locale for so many different activities: relaxation in the great outdoors, hotspots for grilling, party destinations, and more. Below are some of our favorite tips for maximizing your patio space with a substantial amount of style.

Patio Furniture

Whether you want a chaise for maximum comfort while devouring a good book and absorbing some sun, or desire an outdoor eatery, it’s important to keep the following factors in mind.

  • Scale: Oversized pieces in a small space will overwhelm your patio, making it seem smaller and creating a potential hazard while navigating around the space. Choose furniture that is open and airy to avoid boxing in your patio.
  • Eyesore: Since your furniture is likely to be seen from the street, make sure the items you choose are consistent with the architecture and design of your home, so that unsightly, unbefitting, and inconsistent tables and chairs do not become an issue.
  • All Weather: In order to be sure your furniture withstands many seasons to come, make sure it’s made to endure the conditions of the outdoors. UV-protected fabrics prevent fading in the sun, and most fiber fillers in patio furniture is made to repel moisture and mildew.


Open Air Kitchen


At Rhine Landscaping, we can transform your patio into a highly functional space with an outdoor kitchen. Keep the heat out of your already hot home in the summer with a grill and delight in backyard barbecues. Whether you want to keep it simple with a small cooking island or go all out with a refrigerator, stereo, wine cooler, and more, we can incorporate an open-air design into your patio plans.



Illuminate your beautiful new stonework with outdoor lighting so that you and your guests can stay safe while navigating at night, and still appreciate the artfulness of your hardscaped area. Try solar or low-voltage lighting to maximize energy efficiency and keep your electricity expenses to a minimum.

But don’t stop short: fire pits, water features, plants, and potting areas all make great additions to your patio, and at Rhine Landscaping, we can help you incorporate these elements into your backyard design.
