Turn Your Basic Denver Deck into an Outdoor Oasis


February 1, 2017

With Spring peeking around the corner, you might begin to think about the warmer months and all the fun that comes with an outdoor living space. If you want an outdoor living space that allows you to relax and enjoy quiet time, the atmosphere is everything. No matter the size, your Denver deck and backyard can be turned into an amazing year-round outdoor oasis. Let us help you create the cozy outdoor retreat you crave.

Seating

This may seem obvious, but comfortable seating is a must! Whether it is a hammock, porch swing, recliner, or built in seating with storage, you need a comfy spot to sit back and relax. Picture yourself outside, reading or relaxing with a cold glass of iced tea. One tip, don't feel obligated to buy new outdoor furniture to create your oasis. You might find that you have furniture that can be used for both indoors and outdoors. There are also many affordable patio furniture options and companies that offer free shipping.  

Water Feature

The soothing sounds of trickling water can wash away all your cares, leaving you relaxed and feeling very zen. Consider adding a beautiful water feature to add to your backyard oasis. There are numerous ways to add the element of water without the cost of adding a pool or hot tub. Water features come in all shapes and sizes, and will match any budget, big or small.

Lighting

Create a romantic outdoor oasis by using numerous lighting sources in your backyard. Adding luminous lights into your backyard escape can create a warm welcoming atmosphere. Lighting can be added via candles, floating pool globes, solar landscape lighting, and overhead chandeliers that dangle from pergolas or gazebos. Avoid harsh spotlights and neon-bright LED lights – they only add an eye-straining glare that is anything but relaxing.

Create Privacy In Your Backyard

Without privacy, you cannot truly let go of the cares of the world and de-stress. Creating a place where the prying eyes of the world cannot see you is difficult when you live in the city or in a crowded subdivision. Landscaping can certainly come in handy when you want to hide. A well-placed tree or bushy hedge can help create a discreet outdoor area.
Draperies can block views outside, too. You could hang outdoor curtains around a pergola, or grow a natural curtain of flowers with a trellis and some climbing clematis.

Decking

If you’re simply looking for an upgraded deck, we can assist with that too. Get rid of your small, unappealing deck and upgrade to a larger, more spacious option. We can also help refurbish your old deck, cleaning and sealing, deck repair or expansion.
