If your yard feels uninspired, and doesn’t provide the welcoming retreat you’ve always hoped for, make 2019 the year you take your backyard from drab to fab! Spring is just around the corner, so now is the time to plan some great upgrades to make your property more enjoyable for you and your guests. The pros at Okanagan Yard Works have a few ideas to get you started:
- Install a Pergola. Pergolas provide a great deal of shade for hot summer days and they provide shelter as well. Add some flowy curtains for colour and privacy, and complete your newly defined space with some comfortable seating or an outdoor dining set. Creating a brand new entertainment area is as simple as that!
- Build a Deck. A new deck can invigorate your yard by providing entertaining areas and making good use of your space. Multi-level decks can add functionality for hot tubs or above-ground pools – or even just to add interest to your property. Decks can be built in all shapes and sizes to suit your needs and preferences, and there are many options for types of wood and stain to create the perfect look for your home. Many homeowners choose to go with pine, but redwood, oak and even composite decking are all excellent choices as well.
- Create an Outdoor Kitchen. Outdoor kitchens are becoming really popular as homeowners realize the value of being able to prep and serve an entire meal al fresco without ever needing to leave their backyard oasis. These features can be built with brick or stone, and can encompass both work space and entertaining. Imagine a fully functioning barbecue area complete with counter space, a bar fridge and seating for simple and relaxed entertaining in style.
