For many Americans, longer days and warmer temperatures mean one thing: outdoor entertaining! Using beautiful real wood to create an outdoor living space is an easy way to enjoy even more of your home, but crafting the ultimate gathering space takes a bit of work and creativity. This season, if you want to maximize your outdoor living space, but you arent sure where to start, help is here.
Daniel Grady Faires' Tips:
- Restore your decks original luster: reseal or stain your deck once a year to bring it back to its original beauty. Update your sealer or stain to keep up with color trends or your changing style.
- Create a conversation zone: a wood lattice privacy wall and built-in bench provide a natural conversation zone with added privacy from your neighbors; add vertical greenery to further customize your deck.
- Build a shaded zone: a wood overhang adds architectural interest to your deck and protects your family from the sun on hot summer days.
- Incorporate greenery: a custom built-in planter box or privacy wall planter box for flowering trees or herb gardens adds major visual impact.
