As summer is winding down, do you feel like you got the best out of your yard this year? Enhancing your outdoor living space may be something to consider completing for the last months of summer, or to plan for next year. Here are three ideas on how to enhance your backyard and expand your outdoor living space:
BUILD A PERGOLA
This is great for a space that may be somewhat shaded already. A pergola will allow sunlight through with minimal shade in its open-air structure. You can even add fabrics or plants to the pergola to increase the shade. It can be a great area to add lounge chairs, an outdoor dining area, or even a bar!
Build A Gazebo
Do you have a beautiful outdoor space but not a lot of shade? A gazebo can be a great option, as it has a full roof. With the sides not fully enclosed you can still enjoy your outdoor space. From lounging to dining areas, it can be a great way to enjoy your backyard even more!
Build A Deck
A deck can be a far more expansive space than a pergola or gazebo. With no top structure, you can use fire pits and grills in this space safely. It’s also large enough to have multiple sections for guests to enjoy, such as a dining area, cooking area, and lounge area.
When considering any of these options, built-in structures are always preferred, as they will last longer than purchased store kits. Permanent structures also will add additional value to your home.
Be sure to consider permits needed to fulfill local codes, including getting engineer building plans. For ease during the project and exceptional final results, give the experts at Patriot Construction a call at 585.720.0990. We’d love to help enhance your backyard!
