As we head into summer, our backyards become more popular than ever. However, we all like to use our space in different ways. Depending on what your favorite backyard activities are, you may wish for different design concepts. Here are some of the most common backyard personalities and how Atlanta Decking and Fence Company can help bring them to life for you.
Tree Hugger – You love to spend the weekend doing yard work. You have all the power tools organized in a stylish shed, catch rain water in a large barrel to re-use, toss your trash in compost pile, pull out binoculars to watch for birds and butterflies, and grow the best plants for your climate zone. Building a beautiful gate around these various areas of your backyard can help to make them each stand out in their own way. Creating separate sections for animals, plants, and environmentalism projects keeps things organized and prevents one area from interfering with another.
Kid/Pet Parent – Whether you’re the parent of little humans or furry friends, you likely want to create a backyard space that is both safe and entertaining for them. Both can benefit from sturdy turfgrass, though for different purposes. Kids can pitch a tent, go for a swing, or play their favorite games. Under deck storage keeps all their toys safe when not in use.
Pets can run around, jump, and play to their heart’s content. You may also want to provide trees and shrubs for shade and a water feature for them to get a drink or cool off. And, of course, a safe and secure fence surrounding the backyard keeps kids and pets in, and others out.
Party House – For the person who loves to entertain, backyard living is amped up with a full deck that includes patio furniture, a fire pit, yard games, strategic lighting, an outdoor kitchen, and much more. Surround your pool or hot tub with a safe deck for kids who like to run. Create additional entertaining space, or a space with a different vibe, with an under deck porch.
Zen Master – Your backyard is your oasis. When you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of your daily life, head to your backyard for some peace and quiet. Plant large trees to provide some shade and hang a hammock for reading or napping. Set up your yoga mat underneath an arbor or pergola. Add a calming water feature nearby to relax and bring peace to your busy life.
