Summers are short in Alberta, which is why maximizing your time spent outdoors during the warmer months is so important! Enhance your outdoor living space by turning your own backyard into a private outdoor oasis. From building a new deck addition, planting a garden to investing in a major landscaping overhaul, there are lots of things you can do to make your backyard a more enjoyable place to be.

Build a deck.
A deck addition can give you an additional living space for cooking, dining, entertaining, relaxing and spending time as a family. Not only will a deck enhance your personal enjoyment of your home and yard, it will also increase your property value. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value report for 2017, a deck addition can add up to 71.5 per cent of it’s initial cost to your home’s value. Plus, a deck will make your home more attractive to potential buyers which could result in a faster sale and better offering price should you ever decide to sell your home.
Consider building a composite deck. This decking material is extremely durable, long-lasting and virtually maintenance free. Create that perfect place to lounge, barbeque and entertain with a deck built specifically to suit your personal taste, needs and backyard.
Add a pergola or arbor.
A pergola is a wooden framed structure with a slatted roof over the top. An arbor is a similar structure that acts as a covered entranceway to part of your backyard. Both can add a touch of elegance to your outdoor living space.
A pergola or arbor will beautify your backyard by giving you’re a place to plant vines, climbing flowers or hang décor. It is also a practical and attractive way to provide shade over an eating area, lounging spot or hot tub.
Create a campfire area.
There’s nothing better than enjoying a long summer’s evening sitting around the campfire with family and friends. Add a campfire to your backyard design on your deck or patio will give you a place to relax on weekends, enjoy the warm summer nights and even the odd wiener roast!
