If you are into barbecuing, al fresco dining, outdoor games, and poolside parties with friends and family then we have some tips for you! We would like to give a few tips on how to spruce up your backyard to create your very own backyard oasis…

Water Is A Big Part Of An Oasis

An oasis is a fertile land with a pool of water surrounded by lush greenery. If you are thinking of an oasis, you definitely should think about putting in a pool. There is no better spot to spend the summer than poolside. Even better, incorporate a deck around your pool. Plan out what you want to do on the deck. Will you be using it just to get in and out of the pool? Or will you want to add lounges or a table and chairs? What about planters, speakers, and maybe an outdoor fire pit?


How To Spruce Up Your Deck

Make it inviting. Decorating isn’t limited to indoor spaces. Soften your space and add personality by choosing cushion fabrics and coordinating outdoor pillows and rugs that compliment your design style. Purchase weather-resistant tables, comfortable chairs, built-in benches, and other seating areas. You are going to be hosting parties on your deck and the friends and family all need somewhere to sit. Building in benches and chairs into your deck is a great way to provide some permanent seating.


Keep Entertaining Simple With Stone And Wood Built-In Furniture

You do not need to set up tables and chairs if they are already built-in. Your deck builder will be able to install any built-in furniture you desire. A built-in table with a stone top is very attractive. Or you could build a permanent outdoor cooler. Stone will help ice retain its low temperature. Having a stone cooler permanently added to your deck is a great idea.


Do You Love Sitting By The Fire?

Build your deck around a fireplace. The entire deck layout can be centered around the fire pit or fireplace. There have been a lot of beautiful deck designs using this idea. Some have built their deck with a cutout, in which the center is filled with sand or stone with the fire pit in the center. Adding a fireplace to a deck can enhance this perception, increase the use of a deck in cooler weather, and provide an alternative place to cook for nature lovers. With appropriate planning and attention to detail, homeowners can easily install outdoor fireplaces on their wooden decks.
