Enjoy Hanging by the Fire Pit
The best way to enjoy your backyard all year-round: add warmth.
Imagine cozying up to a fire pit or fireplace in your backyard. Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits are not only beautiful, but are a functional gathering area that can draw in the entire family. Plus, they can be utilized year-round. Cozy up with a blanket and sweatshirt in the winter and enjoy roasting s’mores in the summer. It’s the perfect way to enjoy your backyard any time of the year. If you live in milder climates, this “fireside” activity can be done next to an illuminated swimming pool at night!
Add an Overhead Pavilion
Winter snow is pretty, but it’s likely you don’t want to sit in it. Consider covering your patio with a pavilion or gazebo to extend your backyard space.
- Pavilions are durable structures that can provide relief and shade on a hot summer day and can withstand up to 45 lbs. of snow per square foot!
- Gazebos are octagonal structures with a solid roof that provides the perfect focus point to any backyard.
Structures like these help keep you covered so you can take advantage of your backyard in any kind of weather.
Warm Up with a Spa
A spa is the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter day. Relax after a long day as the spa jets pulse warm water across your tired muscles. There’s truly no better way to unwind than with a relaxing spa! There’s plenty of ways to incorporate a spa into your backyard living space, from an intimate spa built for two to a larger spa where friends and family can gather. Plus, there are a number of health benefits associated with owning a spa, like relieving stress, lowering blood pressure, and relieving chronic pain.
Dress Up your Backyard with Special Lighting
During winter, the days get shorter and shorter, and no one wants to relax in the backyard without adequate lighting. That’s why it’s important that your backyard space incorporate strategically placed lighting. Illuminate your backyard and create an area that’s both aesthetically pleasing and functional for the whole family.
