With a little creativity a bland patio can be a little more appealing. The patio below would have generally been square. With just a little more effort in framing up the forms, this patio took on a whole new look. The cost was minimal as the amount of concrete used was about the same as if square. The labor wasn't much different either because rather than having to square up the patio with various form boards, they just used one long bendable board to make the curved shape.
