3 Designs to Elevate Your Backyard to the Next Level

With being a company based on the Jersey Shore, the summer season is something that we look forward to every year. Whether you are looking to relax in a tranquil oasis or entertain guests with plenty of activities, the perfect backyard design can make all the difference. In this blog post we’ll look at three designs that will instantly elevate your backyard and turn it into something extraordinary!

A Deck Addition

Now is a great time to think about what you might want to get out of your backyard next summer. Are you tired of having no designated area to entertain your guests during your summer BBQs and get-togethers? A new deck addition might just be the perfect answer for you. By having a deck added on to your home, you won’t have to worry about a sitting area if your yard is muddy or uneven. Instead, a deck offers a place where everyone can sit together and enjoy each other’s company. Also, design ideas for decks are infinite, whether you prefer the fiberglass appearance, or the more traditional wood-like Azek appearance.

A Firepit Patio
Honestly, can fire pit season come any sooner? We can’t wait to spend the evenings outdoors making s’mores! Adding a firepit patio area to your backyard is a great way to elevate your backyard to the next level. Make your house the ultimate entertainment spot by installing a firepit patio that is a great multi-purpose feature that can be used whether it is spring, summer, or fall. With the warmer weather right around the corner, a firepit is a great entertainment space for summer barbeques, birthdays, and more. You can even get creative with your firepit and pick from either having a wood or stone burning firepit, and your patio design options are endless as well. Would you prefer a patio area that has unique shaped pavers, or an area that has smooth stones or gravel surrounding the pit?


One of the easiest ways to elevate your backyard to the next level without having to do any serious remodeling is updating your exterior landscaping. Plants are a great way to elevate your backyard, and the overall curb appeal of your home. In the warmer seasons, think about planting perennial plants that will come back year after year that will reduce your yearly gardening maintenance. If your backyard lacks privacy, a great option is to add some shrubs or flowering bushes that will grow to naturally be a privacy feature, while also offering color to your backyard oasis.

Although there are many backyard design ideas, it is important to pick features that are the most important to you, and your own lifestyle. By adding a deck, a firepit patio, or updating your exterior landscaping, you can elevate your backyard to the next level and have a great place to host parties.
