Filtering barriers allow wind to pass through, reducing its force in the process. Wind currents can ruin your patio peace as surely as a rainstorm. Shielding yourself from wind takes careful planning and sometimes trial and error. Since you can’t protect against all wind, first determine the direction of prevailing winds—the most frequent and strongest wind currents affecting your site (prevailing winds may change with the seasons)—then decide on the best location for a wind barrier. Contrary to appearances, a solid barrier often is not the most effective windbreak; these barriers force air currents to swoop over the top and then drop down on the backside, returning to full strength at a distance roughly equal to the barrier’s height.

Other practical matters to consider—including zoning restrictions and natural conditions on your property, such as drainage and seasonal weather—are addressed in this chapter as well.

In terms of use, the entry patio is a return to the concept of the traditional front porch: a semiprivate space that allows homeowners to enjoy the outdoors while keeping in touch with neighbors. Being in full view, however, does place certain stylistic and architectural constraints on an entry patio. As the foreground to a home’s façade, it’s important that the patio complements the home’s proportions and decorative scheme.
