Our collection of handpicked raised patio ideas covers all kinds of gardens, from those on the more compact side to spaces that can incorporate outdoor cooking facilities. 

The best patio ideas can totally lift the overall appearance of a garden space, as well as providing it with another function — an expanse of lawn might be just what the children want for running around, but a raised patio will provide somewhere for the adults to sit and chill, entertain or cook al fresco meals.
