Skip the vacation! Top Remodeling Projects for your Backyard

Spring is here, and many of us are deciding to forgo our spring/summer vacations and instead put our finances into our safe haven: our homes! Now is a great time to transform that backyard into a fun place for family and friends to hang out!

Fire pits and seating walls, paver patios, are great ways to turn our outdoor spaces into a safe and relaxing space for friends and family to gather and eat, toast marshmallows, and play games.

Composite decks are a low maintenance way to turn a blank yard into a fun and inviting place for spring/summer barbeques! Add some landscape lighting, fabulous furniture, some tiki torches, and your ready for a party.

Why not completely transform your yard with a private outdoor area: A screen porch will provide the feeling of being outdoors with the bug-free enjoyment of being inside! Add a privacy wall like this one, and hang a TV to watch sports or movies. Adding deck for for some sun time and a paver patio with stone seating wall and built-in outdoor kitchen complete the backyard oasis ready for entertaining.
