Summer in Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska is grilling season. Now that the hottest days of summer are just ahead of us, it’s the perfect time to get outside and cook up some fun, but when done right, grilling is more than cooking. It’s an event, with friends gathered around while the grill master creates smoky masterpieces. Before all that though, you’ve got to create the right atmosphere. A natural stone patio makes the perfect setting for these gatherings to happen.

The great thing about a natural stone patio is that the options are endless. There’s a wide range of materials, designs, and features that can be incorporated. You can build a natural stone patio that’s small and simple, large and elaborate, or anything in between.

If you prefer small, intimate gatherings, a simple natural stone patio with enough space for your grill and some seating may be perfect. Even if you already have a concrete patio, replacing it with a natural stone patio can drastically improve the aesthetics of your outdoor space and make it feel more inviting.

If you entertain larger groups, you’ll want to opt for a more expansive outdoor space, possibly with multiple functional areas. Start with your cooking area. Upgrade from a grill to a fully functioning kitchen with a built-in grill, appliances, sink, counter space, and even a pizza oven or rotisserie. You’ll also need plenty of space for guests to gather and dine.

If you have the space, you can create separate areas for these different functions. Establish one area that will accommodate a table and chairs for dining and another area for socializing. Built-in seating or planter boxes can be used to define and separate the areas. You can also create a feeling of separation by using different natural stone materials or different colors of the same material. A fire pit can be a great addition, providing a focal point that guests can gather around.

Whether you’re building a new natural stone patio, replacing an existing patio, or adding on to an existing patio, Table Rock Company has everything you need and we would love to help. We carry an extensive selection of natural stones for all your outdoor needs and our experts will be happy to help you select the perfect materials for your new outdoor living area.
