I Love a Fire pit

The beautiful thing about firepits is that they are fairly simple to make. And there are so many options for enjoying them!

  • Cooking: Roast marshmallows, make s'mores, or cook hot dogs and hamburgers over the fire. (Our grandkids LOVE a tasty s’more!)

  • Cozying up: Gather around the fire with friends and family for a chat, game night, or movie night.

  • Relaxing: Enjoy the warm glow of the fire and the sound of crackling flames.

  • Entertaining: Host a party or barbecue around the fire.

  • Romantic: Create a romantic atmosphere by lighting candles and listening to music.

No matter how you enjoy your outdoor fire pit, it's sure to be a fun and memorable experience.



Privacy Can Be Beautiful!

Backyard screens are a great way to add privacy to your outdoor space. They can be used to block out nosy neighbors, create a more intimate setting for entertaining, or simply provide a sense of seclusion. There are many different types of backyard privacy screens available, made from a variety of materials, so you can find one that fits your needs and budget


Make it your own by planting trailing vines or installing boxes or pots to create “planter walls” for color and beauty.




What’s a Grillzebo?

Grill meets gazebo in this innovative alternative to an outdoor kitchen. With a grillzebo, you can entertain and feed your guests without ever having to leave your food unattended. This versatile structure is big enough to accommodate most standard grills but small enough that it might just fit on your existing patio. And with its customizable features, you can create the perfect outdoor bar and grill space for your needs.
