Concrete Water Features in San Diego | Agundez Concrete

Having grass in your whole patio became a huge trend some years ago and many houses in San Diego, started installing natural grass in their whole patios without being aware of the inconveniences that came with the decision. Increased water costs, high maintenance costs, the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers that harm your health are just some of the many problems people with grass patios face.

Fortunately, nowadays the trend has changed to a more environmentally friendly and much more economical option to enhance the beauty of their patios: concrete patios.

If you’re looking for a way to expand your patio’s beauty and functionality, a concrete patio is the best solution. Read our following tips to learn about different ideas how you can do this.

Tip #1: Install a Concrete Patio

If you want to reduce your water consumption and at the same time enhance your patio, a great option is to install a concrete patio. Replacing lawn with concrete will provide you with many benefits and make your patio area much more efficient to walk around and also versatile.

Tip #2: Create a Relaxation Area

One way of replacing the grass in your patio with concrete is by creating a relaxation area instead of having a complete concrete patio.

You can either install a concrete water feature, an outdoor concrete kitchen or install a concrete pool deck to spend nice and relaxing days all throughout the year.

Tip #3: Replace Grass With Weather Resistant Plants

San Diego gets rain only a few times during rainy season and in most days, moisture is on the lower side, so growing plants in your garden that require a lot of water and maintenance is not the best idea for your economy or for the planet.

Instead, create concrete trails in your garden that will leave some areas with soil in which you can grow plants that are resistant to dry weather conditions. That way, you can enhance your backyard, have some green areas and also keep it clean and accessible to everyone.
