“Why not just spread out a blanket and relax on the grass?” asks Heather.

John rolls his shoulders, saying “Man that’d be uncomfortable after a while. We could just install a patio and sit on lounge chairs instead. The only real thing stopping us is we don’t know how much a patio costs.”

Heather taps her chin as she thinks. “Yeah, I guess you’re right.” John presses on. “It would breakup the landscape some, be nice for hosting friends and family, we can use it for family time, and who knows what else!”

“Okay, let’s look into it,” says Heather with a small laugh. “Let’s look up patio costs around Harford County on Google and go from there.”

Here’s what the couple finds out:

How Much Patios Can Cost

Smaller patio with fire pit and sitting wall

Patio costs range from about $7,000 to $20,000 and higher. The average patio costs between $7,000 to $9,000 and is about 16 feet by 16 feet in size. The price changes based on size, material, shape, any additions you choose, and more.

What Changes Patio Costs And Why

Size changes the cost of a patio due to labor and amount of material. Larger patios need more materials and labor to finish, which raises the price.

Materials is important too. You can choose higher-quality materials that should look nicer for longer. Of course, these materials cost more upfront.

Larger and irregularly shaped patio

Shape affects cost too. Basic shapes like squares and circles are easier to do. Adding curves or complex shapes are more difficult, taking more time and labor to finish.

The condition of the ground is very important. Flat, level surfaces are easier to build patios on than uneven ones. You’ll have to have extra work done if the ground isn’t level.

Accessories you add on will increase the price. You can add lighting, a fire pit, a sitting wall, and more ideas. You can even combine your patio with other hardscape ideas.

Accessibility to the site is important too. If you can fit all the equipment around the back it’ll be a lot cheaper than if you have to use wheelbarrows to get everything to the work project site.
