How to Make Your Backyard an Oasis

How to Make Your Backyard an Oasis

It’s more important than ever to build your dream backyard or ultimate staycation destination. As we continue through times of uncertainty, having an outdoor place to unwind and relax is vital. Here’s How to transform your backyard into your favourite outdoor spot.

Create magic with ambiance


It doesn't take much to make a backyard feel magical. String lights, an outdoor chandelier, waterfall features and a stunning outdoor fireplace can quickly add the ambiance and magic your backyard has been missing. Focusing on design elements that spark relaxation is a worthwhile investment.

 ​

Invest in a pergola or gazebo


Design a beautiful backyard that you'll never want to leave with a stylish and functional pergola or gazebo. For a traditional look, choose a classic wood pergola. For a style that's more modern, vinyl or aluminum pergolas are a great option. Finish with gazebo net lights to add sparkle to your evenings.

 ​

Enhance your outdoor dining area


There are plenty of reasons to spend time outside but having an outdoor dining space tops the list of summer must have items. For a budget friendly option, consider adding a small dining table and barbeque. However, if you’re ready to transform your backyard, install outdoor tile, an island, grill and mini fridge – all under a stunning pergola for the ultimate experience.

 ​

Build a deck that suits your needs


Not all decks are created equal. Some decks are raised and offer privacy fencing while other designs are low to the ground, transitioning between decking and interlocking stone. With a wide range of options available to customers, check with your local Home Hardware Building Centre or Home Building Centre store to hear their options, or go online to browse our decking solutions.

Make the most of patio furniture


Make your outside area just as cozy as the inside by using pillows, throw blankets and comfortable seating perfectly set beside a fire pit for warmth.

For a true cottage-feel, we recommend a seat swing or hammock to ensure maximum relaxation.

It’s the perfect time to jump into summer and make yourself the backyard oasis of your dreams.
