        I want to put a patio behind my house which is just an open area. I want to fence it for privacy, do I put the patio in first or put the fence up first?

        The two are not really related to each other as far as construction is concerned. The only construction factor would be if the fence blocked access to the patio for materials etc. If that's the case then build the patio first or make your fence with a big gate or removable panels.

        Otherwise, build whichever one you want the most first.

        Jaybee,
        Thanks for the help. I think I will do the patio first.
