Extend your vacation time by not using your hard earned vacation days to fly and or travel to a destination. With proper planing, you can have a place to get away from it all.
Build a shade structure over your outdoor kitchen island, over an outdoor dinning area, or off your back patio. The shade will allow you and your guests to enjoy the comfort of the outdoors without the worry of the sun or rain.
Covering an area outside will allow for more time playing, eating, and relaxing with your family and friends.
Consider breaking up the hardscape area with plants. Use rugs, furniture, accessories to add some pizzazz. Add a water feature or a fire pit to help create your vary own tranquil oasis.
