Livable Outdoor Space 

Many homeowners are treating their patios and backyards like another room of the house by adding outdoor kitchens with pizza ovens and using decorative planters and garden art to put their unique stamp on the space. How can you make your outdoor space more livable?

  • Add a deck or patio. Great for entertaining or for relaxing during your free time, a deck or patio is a must-have feature. If natural stone or brick patio pavers are out of your budget, concrete pavers are a budget-friendly option.

  • Enhance your lighting. Set the mood and enjoy your patio into the evening with the right lighting. LED and solar are becoming increasingly popular. Use strings of lights, torches or LED glass pavers that can be incorporated into the landscape.

  • Think comfort. Homeowners are turning their patios into outdoor living rooms. Out with the plastic patio furniture and in with oversized sofas, armchairs and tables made for the outdoors.
