Patio

For other uses, see Patio (disambiguation).

A patio (/ˈpæti./,[1] from Spanish: patio [ˈpatjo]; "courtyard", "forecourt", "yard") is an outdoor space generally used for dining or recreation that adjoins a residence and is typically paved. The word comes to English from Spanish, where it has a different meaning, namely a roofless inner courtyard.

Construction

Patios are most commonly paved with concrete or stone slabs (also known as paving flags). Patios can also be created using bricks, block paving, tiles or cobbles.[2]
