small patio design ideas

We have a very small backyard next to a busy street. Our cement patio is 10x10 and 5 ft behind it we have 10 blue spruces. I don't know what to do to make our patio area look more appealing. We do some entertaining, but not alot. We have a 6 yr old boy who loves to be outside, but our patio is so plain and boring we hardly spend time back there. Pergola or a 10x20 floating wooden deck w/ benches? Our budget is $1,500.

"Small backyard" How small? Mine is 3 acres, so we need to know how much land you are talking about. Do you have fencing between your property and the busy street, yet. How far are the spruces planted from the house/patio area.

I can post pics so you can see. What's the easiest way to do that?

No fencing. Spruces are planted parallel to the street behind me because of our lot line which means we lost of of space since the spruces couldn't be planted straight. They are 10-15 ft behind our home.

Yeah, why don't you post a few pix on a site such as photobucket.com and copy/paste the IMG code to your reply post.
