Build Your Outdoor Oasis

Build Your Outdoor Oasis

By Gia Gallone

Craving a vacation-like atmosphere in your own backyard? Here are some design elements to create the perfect outdoor escape. 
Privacy
Your outdoor oasis starts with privacy. Forget the outside world and all of the worries that come with it with a privacy fence. Murphy Fence Company offers a variety of fencing types to meet your privacy needs. If you want full isolation from the outside world, vinyl or wood fencing is a great option. Aluminum or chain link fencing are also options, but provide less privacy with open designs. Additionally, Murphy Fence can meet all of your style and design needs so your fence fits right into your new backyard getaway.
Deck
A deck is the perfect spot to relax with a good book or gather with family and friends. Town Bank Builders can build this beautiful extension of your home so that it looks like it was always there. A variety of designs, colors and materials are available to build your place of tranquility in your very own backyard. Fill your new space with furniture and décor, and sit back, relax and enjoy the fresh air!
Shade
Maybe you desire some shade on your brand new deck? Enter Awnings by Bill Lloyd! Get the custom awning you need to add a cooler area to your backyard. Retractable awnings are even available for when you’re in the mood to soak up the sunshine. For the ultimate escape from the sun’s rays, enclose your deck with a screen. Keep the heat and insects out without obstructing your view of the great outdoors.
Seating
Seating is a must in your backyard oasis, but we’re not talking about your plain old table and chairs. Consider a gazebo or pavilion to add a unique seating element to your backyard. Gazebos and pavilions provide protection while still allowing you to feel the warm air on your skin. Add a dining table and use it as an area to eat; put a comfy outdoor couch underneath for a spot to kick back; or place a gazebo or pavilion over your spa so you can take a dip no matter what the weather. Dutchway Structures can help you bring a stunning gazebo or pavilion into your backyard, personalized to your style and purpose.
Summerhouse
While sheds are typically used for storage, we’ve got a better idea: use a shed to create a mini retreat right within your backyard oasis. Whether it be a man cave, she-shed, pool house or garden shed, Seashore Sheds & Gazebos can help you build this backyard bliss. This extra space can be great for entertaining and relaxing any time of the year!
Greenery
What better way to add beauty to your outdoor escape than some greenery? But don’t just slap down some plants in a hidden corner of the yard. Display greenery in a way that adds elegance and character to your yard. Dennisville Fence can provide you with pergolas, arbors and trellises where you can plant climbing vines for natural shade and privacy. Or, place colorful flowers in planter boxes and garden beds to break up a large yard. Not sure what to choose? Cape Shore Gardens can help you design the perfect landscape with its expert plant selections.
Water
The first thing many people think of when they think “outdoor oasis” is a pool. The addition of a pool not only adds the luxury of cooling off from the sun, but also boasts the soothing sights and sounds of water. Other water features such as ponds and waterfalls are more affordable additions to your oasis, but bring just as much beauty and tranquility.
Fire Pit
Illuminate the nighttime summer sky with a cozy fire pit, the perfect spot to hang out with friends and family, roast marshmallows and share stories. Action Supply can help you take a DIY approach to your new fire pit by providing you with an EP Henry Fire Pit Kit. In it you’ll find all of the necessary materials to create a beautiful fire pit you can enjoy for years to come.
Music
There’s no better way to complete your peaceful atmosphere than with the soothing sounds of music. Just imagine lying in the sun and sipping on a cocktail while your favorite song drifts through the air – the perfect way to drown out your daily distractions. Sound Advice & Video can help you make that vision a reality by installing a fully integrated music system in your backyard. Get the ultimate audio experience along with the capability of triggering music from the push of a single button. Talk about paradise!
