Top Additions to your Backyard
Are you looking to make some additions to your backyard? There is a variety of things you can do to make the area more versatile.
Brick paver patio: Whether you already have a patio, or are considering installing one, brick pavers are the way to go. First and foremost, you will make a great return on your investment as they won’t fade, crack or chip over time. Next, they are easy to clean. Whether you are dealing with snow maintenance in the winter, or general debris in the summer, it has a smooth surface and connections that won’t catch. Brick pavers are also non-skid and non-slip for added safety. As a homeowner, the best thing you can do is learn the benefits of using interlocking bricks for your Denver brick pavement system.
Fire Pit: Nothing is better than enjoying a cool spring evening on your patio, enjoying a nice warm fire. Fire pits make this easy. They come in a variety of sizes and styles, allowing you to have a small one on a patio, or a large one in an open grass area.
Pergola: Have some space in your yard? Consider adding a pergola to your patio. This is an open frame, usually with latticework on the roof. You could have a cover option design available allowing you to have it open to view the sky on nice days or covered for rain.
When it comes to landscaping in your backyard, plan out any floral or shrubbery additions first. From there, re-mulch any existing areas and add mulch to the new. Be sure to use an organic mulch to provide proper nutrients. Wondering what to add? Try one of these 23 backyard landscaping ideas.
Patio Maintenance Ideas
When it comes to caring for your patio, having brick pavers will help immensely. Your top priority will be to pull any weeds around your pavers and spray the area with weed killer. Next, sweep the area and remove any debris in the pavers. From there, you can spray the pavers down with a hose or power washer, using an approved cleaner by your local hardscaping company.
