Example of a mid-sized trendy concrete patio design in Los Angeles

Liz StewartContemporary Patio, Los Angeles

I transformed a old dilapidated backyard hillside into an entertaining area by building a concrete bench onto the existing flat area. Added custom colorful cushions and pine fencing to hide the neighbors yard.

    I'd bet that the fabric on the cushions, bolsters and pillows are Sunbrella...

    The lines are scored into the cement when the concrete is still wet, so hand tools can be used. Hope this helps.

What is the height both on the seat, and on the back? Thanks

    I'm so sorry that I don't have those details any longer. Dimensions are pretty close to regular chair height.

    Hi K. Its very easy. start by building a concrete bench, or can be made of wood. Then make the custom seat cushions. The blue tables are Target storage boxes that I upholstered. Be sure to use outdoor fabric for longevity! Good luck.

      Hi Lina, I did this job many years ago, so I no longer have all the details. I do know that the bench was an existing wood, so the area was already cleared. No rebar was used. The backside is concrete so is the seat under the cushions. Its basically and L shaped concrete pour. Not very thick. I hope this helps.

      The ottomans were from Target and they came in a leather looking vinyl. I re-upholstered them in outdoor fabric.

      I created the design myself and worked with a concrete contractor.
