Relax on a beautiful, maintenance-free patio

Pavers and a simple design turned this backyard into a shaded patio.

With ample shade, this inviting paver patio in White Bear Lake provides a perfect spot to settle in for a lazy afternoon. The space features Willow Creek concrete pavers, with random-pattern Cobblestone pavers making up the patio and Bullnose pavers used as stair treads on a landing outside the back door.

"The homeowner wanted a simple space for chairs and a table, so that's what I designed," said Villa Landscapes landscape designer Andy Lofboom. "But simple doesn't have to mean plain. The curving patio border and Bullnose treads add visual interest and give the space a finished look."
