Al Fresco

A circular stone terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine after work. The larger gravel terrace below accommodates a small crowd for dinner or s'mores around the custom metal fireplace. Small trees and a gentle slope help define two very different seating areas in a compact back garden. mosaic-gardens.com

Why Patio Size MattersOn the one hand, patios that are too small feel cramped, and chairs pushed back from a table can skid into garden beds. On the other hand, large patios can be pricey, feel less intimate and take up limited garden real estate. The key is to find the right balance of patio size for your needs and your space without overshooting too much.Take a look at these general sizing guidelines for a patio designed for a bistro set, dining table for four to six people, fire pit, backyard grill or multiple use areas. Each guideline also includes the details of a patio on Houzz that hit it just right in terms of space planning. Be sure to check with your local building department before planning a new patio, as permits, setback requirements and other regulations may affect its size and location.Design your patio with a landscape designer on Houzz

Lauren Dunec Design added this to Expand Your Outdoor Living Space With a Satellite PatioFeb 26, 2017

1. Woodland hillside. Sloped yards provide excellent opportunities for creating multiple destinations on different tiers. In this garden in Eugene, Oregon, designer Rebecca Sams used the level changes to create two satellite patios. The upper stone terrace provides room for a cafe table, while the larger lower patio has enough space for a small group to enjoy s’mores around the fire pit.
