Why don't you just post a pic of this area? ;)



Probably do that tomorrow. :)

This is a case where a picture may actually be worth 1,000 words.

Now...the other thing is I have a square concrete patio/area right outside of the door before I get to that muddy area...will it look dumb, iyo, if I go from concrete to paver? Should I get that concrete area up?

Yeah.  Take a sledge hammer to that.

Probably not.  I don't remember how thick they make those, but try the sledge hammer first if you got one before you rent a jackhammer.  I think they're only 3 or 4 inches thick.

So, I guess I should do that first? Seems to make sense.

Right. Do that first if you're having your patio go to the back door.

I don't need it to do that but I think it will look best if I do that.

It will look horrible if you don't. I would patio the entire area, and then screen it in from the deck above. Then you can still hang outside when it rains, and have some shade to hide in on those 100 degree days.

Oh I would def just lay down some cobblestone or something there. Not a complete patio per se, because that would look awkward under the deck but just some nice looking stone surface.

River rock was suggested to me as well.

Apparently it's real smooth on your feet?

The other thing I have thought about is eventually putting a hot tub there.

See. Right back to what I said before. Put a slab and hot tub in, then screen it all in for privacy. Nice little chair/couch set and you are good to go.

I actually just got a kick ass couch and chair outdoor set...shit is so expensive.

It's on my deck but I can put other stuff down there.

Yeah that's what I want too. I'm holding off until we move though. Put some indoor/outdoor carpet down, a nice conversation set, and a hot tub and you'd be rocking.

 

Something like this maybe...http://central-iowa....th-hot-tub.html
