Exposed aggregate concrete with brick expansion joints is tough enough to stand up to spills and splatters on this outdoor floor. The brick also ties the patio to the built-in cooking area. A screening fence on both sides of the built-in shields the cooking/dining area from the rest of the yard. The pergola consists of 4x10s trimmed down by an inch, with a top made of 2x3s spaced 6 inches apart. A sheet of 1/8-inch-thick clear plastic is nailed to the top to let sunlight through but keep out the rain.
