A simple patio can be converted into a wonderful patio garden and made more useful. If some minute details are cared for, the end result can be magically appealing. The color scheme of the entire patio must be planned out. Consider the color of the planter containers when you choose the flowers or plants. Be sure they compliment one another. Also, take into account the color of the flooring. Be it cement, wood, brick or stone you will want the containers to blend well with the ground. Lastly, think about the color of vinyl patio covers available and what would match the best with the overall look.
