As the seasons change, and summer rolls around once again, many people are interested in creating a serene atmosphere in their backyard, and using it as a place to escape the stress of everyday life. As the weather starts to warm up, we thought we’d compile a list of ways to make your backyard the envy of the neighborhood this summer.
Outdoor Kitchen: One of the most enjoyable aspects of summer is throwing backyard barbecues with your friends and neighbors, and to do that, it always helps to actually have a kitchen installed in the backyard, so people don’t have to run back and forth between the backyard and the indoor kitchen. An outdoor kitchen with a stone surround will look marvelous, spruce up any backyard, and certainly make yours the talk of the town.
Outdoor Bar: If you’re going to be hosting parties this summer, an outdoor bar is an absolute must! Enjoy some fresh summer air, great conversations, and a few adult beverages.
Outdoor Fireplace: Cool nights can certainly get a tad brisk, even here in Charleston, and an outdoor fireplace allows you to snuggle up and stay warm, but still enjoy the outdoor air and get a glimpse of the stars in the night sky.
Gas Lamps/ LED Lighting: An important accent of any backyard built for entertaining is lighting, which is why LED lighting, specifically LED tiki torches, have been a highly requested product recently. Good lighting will allow you to create the right ambiance, as well as keep the party going well after the sun has set.
