As their name suggests, semi-circle patios have a curved layout that looks like a circle cut in half. It’s most frequently designed as an extension of the rectangular patio as a designated downtime area. The most common paving materials used for semi circle patios are concrete slabs, brick pavers, clay, natural stone, or crushed stone.

If you have a small patio, and you want to utilize your space to its full capacity, creating different levels is a smart way to do that. This wide raised wooden decking encompassing the entire curve of the semi-circular patio gives you plenty of space to accommodate various activity zones. Adding a big fire pit in the middle will help make those late nights in the garden a lot more comfortable and intimate.

A Hidden Patio Sanctuary

The landscaping possibilities of a semi circle patio spread a lot further than what meets the eye. Its curved shape invites you to think outside the limitations of the square or rectangular layout and explore different shapes and zoning arrangements. This design offers an interesting approach that uses greenery as a way to create a sense of enclosure and privacy. The open section of the semi circle is utilized by installing an artificial pond with concrete stepping stones which serve as the main pathway to the designated dining spot in the centre of the patio.

Using gazebos in your landscaping design is a great way to create a more intimate hideaway area. It also fits perfectly in any curved nooks or semi circular areas of your patio. It’s the ideal “adult” spot for brunches, dinners, late-night conversations, or small celebrations. You can decorate it with wooden lounge chairs, a curved bench, or even add a hammock and a couple of ottomans for a more cozy atmosphere. If the area allows for it, you can also add a small fire pit in the center, or decorate with soft ambient lighting.
