Our New Patio!

We finally decided what we wanted to do for a patio in the backyard. We contracted out the work to have a Stamped Concrete patio put it. It looks like it's flagstone but it's one slab of concrete and they then "stamp" a design in it to make it look like individual pieces. We wanted one slab to keep the maintenance down and to keep weeds and grass from growing in between.

I kept going back and forth between wicker and wrought iron. I love the wrought iron look but everything we saw just seemed too large for the patio. We settled for this lovely wicker set with a Hawaii-ish pattern on the cushions. Since Hawaii is my paradise, I have a lot of things to spruce it up a bit!

The grass is growing around the edge quite nicely. I can't wait to landscape it a bit!
