As the temperatures start to warm up, the value of having a comfortable place to spend time outside becomes tremendous. Having a back yard is usually not enough-what truly steps up the relaxation is incorporating a deck, porch or patio of some kind. Today we explore different options in terms of creating the perfect backyard relaxation and entertainment area.
The first go to option is to create a wooden deck. Creating a space that is separate from the rest of your yard has many benefits. You can use this space to grill out, enjoy a meal, or sip on a tasty drink at the end of the day. Wood decks are also the perfect spot to put a matching hot tub, if you really want to step it up! If you have an existing deck that is starting to become out of date, consider staining the deck a bright, fresh new color. Refinishing a deck is the perfect way to give your yard an update while still keeping all of the existing features.
Another option for backyard entertainment is a stone patio. You are still creating an area with the same functions as a wood deck, so the difference is mostly aesthetic preference. Stone patios are truly beautiful, and can be dressed up with matching steps, posts, columns, and tiles. If you want a unique and classic look for your back yard, a stone patio may be the right choice.
If you are trying to extend the life of your porch beyond the summer months, a covered or screened in porch is the perfect option. You still get to experience the joy of being outside, but the walls offer a bit of security if the weather is a bit cooler. Covered porches are also a great option if you have kids or pets, but don't have a fence-installing a small gate is a pretty easy task.
