You don't mention where you're located, weather conditions, size of patio, etc.
In general I would recommend concrete pavers, either plain or fancy, laid on a
bed of sand, and graded away from the house. Pavers are relatively in expensive
and will probably outlast your house. They can be natural concrete color or
tinted. The interlocking pavers are really nice, but do cost a bit more.

I should have also mention that concrete pavers are usually carried at Lowe's or
Home Depot, as well as building supply companies. I'm not sure which would be
cheaper. At another house we used interlocking pavers to create a walkway along
the side of our house from the driveway to the back of the house patio. It was
abouta 3 ft wide and 30 ft long. I don't recall exactly what it cost, but we
didn't consider it expensive.
You can buy some interlocking paver and simply lay them on the ground or
even do the same with thick concrete pavers. Though, without a proper
base, they will most likely move throughout the years as the ground
shifts and changes.
Clean out any grass and weeds in the area you want as a patio area, and
spread pea gravel in the area about an inch thick. It's just enough to
embed into the top layer of dirt, and still have some gravel above the
dirt level to keep feet from being muddied. Works great.
Around here that would be like getting rid of one of the kids ... you
must really be a heartless SOB to even suggest it . Dogs love
unconditionally , to the point of giving their life for you even if you
don't deserve it . I try hard to be worthy of our dog's love .
Well, the OP is still a dumb ass judging by the post. Travis OTOH. . .
What can I say. I used to deal with such individuals from time to time.
Reports would use an abbreviation in reference to such folks: "NHI"
which stood for "No Humans Involved:
While I agree with the moaners stupidity , what have you got against
dogs ? The most loyal friend a person can have ... see my response to
Travis Bickle above . He apparently doesn't like 'em either .

What is really idiotic about people who say things like "posting *from* HOH" is that
the poster has nothing to do with the fact that their post ends up in a.h.r. They posted
*on* or *at* the HOH site or *in* the HOH forum. The "from" isn't their fault and there is
no setting that allows them to prevent the propagation of their post to other places.
If the same person posted the same question, worded the same way, directly in a.h.r
would they still be called a "retard"? Maybe by certain idiots, but at least it would be
based on their question, not on where they posted it.
Besides, look at the sorry state of a.h.r these days. It's full of trolls, people that only
want to talk politics, and so much OT crap that there is no reason for anyone to expect
a proper discussion on a home repair related issue. Why would anyone suddenly embrace
this usenet group as their primary place to ask home repair related questions? Give this
thread a couple of more minutes and it'll morph into an "impeach Trump" or "poor snowflake"
Yeah, yeah, go ahead...give me the standard "Then go away if you don't like it" response.
Nah, I think I'll hang around and keep laughing at the idiots that post their drivel here.
