Once you complete the Peaceful Patios Quest you can build patios in your gardens, this post explains how to add a patio and all the ways you can customise it!
NOTE: you will not be able to customise a patio until the quest has been completed
You do this the same way you build a room or a pool, by touching and dragging anywhere on the grass, it will be green if it can be placed there
Drag the white highlighted edged to resize
You can join patios together, the patio in the picture below is a 4×4 square with two 1×7 patios each side
What is the cheapest patio? A 2×1 will cost S30,000
The second tab in the outdoor section is where you can select the type of tiles you want on your patio, click on the style then click on the patio
Railings are the third tab along, again click on the style then onto the patio and it will place them around the edge
Last patio tab is gates, you can only add a gate to a patio with a railing, like a door you can place wherever you want to on the railings
Deleting a Patio
While on the patio tab click on the patio you wish to delete and select the red simoleon symbol to sell it.
Now you know how, its time to create beautiful patio gardens! Enjoy!
