A patio (/ˈpæti./,[1] from Spanish: patio [ˈpatjo]; "courtyard", "forecourt", "yard") is an outdoor space generally used for dining or recreation that adjoins a residence and is typically paved. The word comes to English from Spanish, where it has a different meaning, namely a roofless inner courtyard.

Construction[edit]

Patios are most commonly paved with concrete or stone slabs (also known as paving flags). Patios can also be created using bricks, block paving, tiles or cobbles.[2]
