Spruce up your backyard

Now that warmer weather is here to stay, start preparing your backyard for summer. Whether you want to create the perfect entertainer’s patio or a relaxing oasis, we have a few ideas to help you get started.

screened in porch

Screened-in porch

Summer nights in Wisconsin can get buggy, but that doesn’t mean you should be stuck inside. Add a screened-in porch so you can still enjoy a comforting summer breeze without those pesky mosquitoes.

outdoor fence

Update your fencing

Give your fencing a contemporary look. These slightly parted horizontal slats offer privacy without completely blocking the sunlight or view of your yard. Bright colored furniture or plants will be a beautiful contrast to the dark stain.

modern terrace

Add a modern terrace

A small terrace is a great option to entertain guests if you have a smaller yard. Even if you’re short on space, you’ll still have a cozy area to host dinner parties or relax.

garden gazebo

Garden gazebo

Whether you’re hosting a backyard party or just want to enjoy your garden in the shade, a garden gazebo is an elegant and timeless addition to your landscaping.

outdoor home patio

Level up your patio

A multi-level patio creates distinction between where you eat and where your yard lies. The upper level can be used for grilling and dining with your guests while the lower level leads you into the yard for games or a bonfire.

outdoor fire pit

Gather around the fire

Some of the best summer memories are made around a camp fire. Whether you’re telling ghost stories or keeping warm on cooler summer nights, a beautiful fire pit is sure to light up the night.
