5 Ways to Create a Backyard Getaway


Think of the coolest backyard you have ever been to. What did it have? What did you like about it? Was it the perfect place for throwing a party, or a relaxing space to enjoy the comforts of friends and the outdoors? Or maybe it was a little bit of both. At, we believe that enjoying an outdoor space is key to a happy home. Spice up your outdoor space with these tips!


Outdoor Structures: You saw it coming, didn’t you? Of course number one on our list for creating a backyard getaway is adding an outdoor structure! A gazebo, pergola or pavilion adds another level of luxury to any outdoor space. Whether attached to the deck, an accessory to a pool or a stand alone landscape centerpiece, any of these structures can offer a protected spot for dining, relaxing, entertaining or just hanging out.


Durable Furnishings: Today, we have more choices than ever when it comes to outdoor furnishings, making it easy to fit your personal style. Cast iron, wrought iron, traditional wood and cast aluminum are all classic options, but there are also some new materials in the mix. New synthetic, weatherproof patio furniture and fabrics are now available, and they provide the same comfort and style as any other piece.


Add a Hot Tub or Spa: We know that hot tubs aren’t for everyone, but wow, do they add something special to a backyard! Whether for soaking after a long day or as an entertainment spot for guests, a hot tub or spa is a must have luxury for creating your own slice of paradise. It doesn’t stop there. A hot tub or spa can be even more luxurious if enclosed by one of our custom hot tub/spa enclosures.


Amenities: Fireplaces, fountains and fire pits - oh my! Don’t just make your backyard getaway pretty, but also consider its functionality. A fireplace can be the focal point of the space, while also creating a comfortable spot for relaxing or dining on a cool summer night. You can never go wrong with a fire pit, as they effortlessly draw friends and family together. They are also great for enjoying the outdoors well into the fall.


Create Shade: When you think of relaxing outdoors, what do you see? Of course there’s ample sunshine, but we all need a place to beat the heat. You will enjoy your deck or patio more if you can provide a bit of relief from the sun. Some shady items to consider are mature trees, umbrellas, retractable awnings or, of course, a pergola or gazebo!


Turn something ordinary into something extraordinary. These simple upgrades will make your outdoor space a spot to enjoy for years to come. While we love offering tips on how to make the most of your backyard, our true forte is gazebos, pergolas and pavilions.
