Homeowners are reimagining their backyards as an outdoor oasis to reconnect and recharge. Even if you are still awaiting warm weather, now is the time to start planning for the season of sun in the reality of COVID-19. Below are three ideas for your readers to turn their outdoor living spaces into a stunning, serene getaway:
· Destination Deck – Easier to build than standard decks, floating decks are installed at ground level and require no permit to construct. Detached from the house, floating decks allow homeowners to create their own escape – no passport required. For a low-maintenance destination deck, consider using Trex composite decking, which can easily be cleaned with just soap and water. Rather than staining, sanding or painting a wood deck every year, a Trex deck allows you to spend more time enjoying your staycation.
· Regal Retreat – Another way to create an outdoor haven is to construct a freestanding pergola out on the lawn, which can serve as a luxury getaway for some R&R. Replicate the sophisticated style and comforts of a high-end resort by adding plush pillows, soft lighting and water features. A bar cart is a must with your favorite beverages and fancy glassware. Adding some tropical-looking plants or bright-colored flowers that you normally don’t plant can be an easy way to feel like your backyard is an exotic retreat.
· Touch of Privacy – Combining function and flair, lattice can enhance backyard privacy while adding a personal touch. For an option that can be painted and comes in a variety of designs, consider DIY-friendly Trex Latticeworks. From Tuscany-inspired designs to Moroccan patterns, there’s a style fit for any outdoor oasis.
