If the house has a private patio, it is required to turn it in a warm and pleasant place for summer gatherings! This is called the courtyard patio. There you can put a sofa, chairs, chaise lounges spread out. If there is enough space, you can make a small pool. Of course, little table with snacks and drinks will be very handy, well thought out lighting and a variety of ornamental plants around – for beauty and comfort!
