If you can’t wait for summer weekends to arrive so you can fill your home with friends, neighbours and family, we at L.B.H. & Onoway TIMBER MART want to help you make your backyard safe and comfortable so your guests will be free to enjoy all the fun you can serve up!
Create a space that your guests will never want to leave with these 4 easy tips:
- Build custom outdoor furniture
- Complete your privacy fence
- Inspect the deck and railing for safety
- Grass, trees and plants that complement your backyard
1. CUSTOM OUTDOOR FURNITURE
If you’ve built your deck and fence out of Western Red Cedar, why not construct custom outdoor furniture to match.
Building custom furniture allows you to decide the size and shape so the furniture will fit seamlessly into your decor. You can create matching tables and chairs of different sizes for kids and adults.
Our friendly staff can help you decide which furniture ideas and sizes are best for your space, recommend the right products and tools for the job, and how to properly maintain the material for longevity.
2. PRIVACY WALL OR FENCE
When entertaining, having a privacy wall can help to create a quaint and secluded ambiance for you and your guests to enjoy.
If you’re looking to create privacy on a larger scale, while providing your guests with a friendly space for playing games and relaxing, a beautifully constructed fence is your best bet.
A fence, built out of Western Red Cedar, or one of our other recommended materials, can be custom built to your style and preference adding aesthetic appeal to the backyard.
A properly maintained fence will have a long life allowing you to host backyard parties for years to come.
3. SAFE DECK AND RAILING
When hosting parties, your deck will have to support the weight the BBQ, patio furniture, toys or games, planters – and most importantly, your family and friends.
Be sure to inspect and repair any damage that has occurred over the winter to the deck and railing before inviting guests to your home. Look for loose or rotting boards that could collapse and potentially result in injury.
Using a strong material, such as Western Red Cedar or Composite Decking, will ensure that the structure is sound, while regular maintenance (link to 4-tips for outdoor maintenance blog) will protect against weather damage and provide a beautiful space to host events all summer long.
4. UPDATE YOUR LANDSCAPE
Adding trees, plants and flowers can create a bright and beautiful space. The refreshed landscape will provide natural decor and soothing scents! Match your greenery, trees and shrubs with the overall atheistic of the backyard, pepper in bright flowers for gorgeous colourful enhancements.
With even simple changes, like adding in a fresh layer of mulch, your outside oasis will surely be the preferred place to gather this summer.
