Spring has sprung!.  Don’t like the backyard you found when the snow melted?

Follow these 3 steps to a better backyard…

  • Step 1 – Build a Deck or Patio
  • Step 2 – Add a Pergola, Roof or Awning
  • Step 3 – Accessorize!

Step 1 – Should you build a deck or a patio?  As a rule, if the bottom of your back door is less than 3 feet off of the ground (about belt high) you should build a patio.  If the bottom of your door is higher than 3′ off of the ground you may want to start with an elevated deck.

Step 2 – Already have a deck or patio? Add a pergola, awning or roof to shade the sun or it will be too hot to use. You’ll want a shade system sturdy enough to handle wind or it will break.   Awnings and roofs can also allow you to enjoy the outdoors when it rains.

Step 3 – Accessorize!  Now that you have a patio or deck and protection from sun and rain, it is time to add accessories to help you enjoy the outdoors even more.  Outdoor living accessories fall into these 5 categories:

  • Water Features – Pool, Hot Tub, Pond, Waterfall, Fountain, Sink
  • Fire Features –  Fire Pit, Fireplace, Grill, Pizza Oven
  • Entertainment – Television, Movie Screen, Speakers
  • Furnishings – Seating, Tables, Counters, Bars and Cabinets – built in or portable
