Patio - concrete pavers versus poured concrete?

last month

Hello all, we will have a very tiny backyard after building a raised pool and a guest house. Now we are thinking about how best to finish this area.

We just added a drainage system to ensure water doesn’t accumulate. Now we are thinking about whether to include poured concrete with artificial grass strips or large pavers without a space in the middle.

Poured with turf

  • cheaper
  • green breaks up the sober look
  • maybe uneven for furniture
  • maybe a tripping hazard for kids and elderly


  • easier to maintain
  • more usable / practical
  • more expensive
  • feels very hard scaped? Not warm or environmentally friendly?
