    • Screen Gazebo

      A screen gazebo is an excellent choice for any backyard entertainment area. It protects you and your guests against passing showers and pesky mosquitoes.

    • Relaxing Retreat

      Create a cozy nook at the corner of your garden with pillow-padded furniture colorful accessories! Frame the space with an arching flowering vine.

    • Outdoor Living Space

      Three outdoor rooms and two fireplaces make way for the ultimate space for entertaining. Unite the space by using the same elements in each room whether it's the style of furniture, color scheme of the pillows or repeating accessories.

    • Outdoor Dining

      Lantern-like lighting adds to the ambience of a blazing fireplace to create a romantic flair to this dining area. As summer progresses, a sheltering pergola will bring shade to a popular gathering space.

    • Outdoor Storage and Seating

      Simple boxes fulfill two needs at once, providing both patio seating and storage. The seat tops lift up, allowing access to tabletop service, gardening tools, or folding deck furniture. The cushions are made with waterproof fabric for durability.

      Cedar is a low-maintenance choice for a sturdy pergola. The wood species' natural oils help it resist rot and other damage. Treatment with a waterproofing sealer every couple of years will extend the cedar's life span and give it a more appealing finish.

    • Open Fire Pit

      A stone-lined fire pit supplies practical and visual warmth to an outdoor living space. Additional river-rock accents add to the outdoor room's rustic flavor. Choose your outdoor furnishings for their ability to stand up to the elements.
