Boosting Your Backyard Beauty With Concrete
The sizzle of summer has changed to the feels of fall. Just because the summer cookout season has passed doesn’t mean your backyard gatherings have to come to a halt. The fall is a great time to revamp the backyard so that you can have that perfect backyard retreat all through the year.
Residential concrete can help create the perfect oasis by converting the back of your home from a drab to a fab backyard beauty that will be the fun hot spot through the winter for friends and family and the envy of the neighborhood.
Why Choose Concrete to Craft your Backyard Oasis?
A concrete base creates the very best foundation to create a year-long paradise in your backyard. With the right concrete and expert cement masons, you will have an extension of your home and living space. Here are 3 reasons concrete is the best option for your project.
Concrete is simple to clean. It requires minimal time and effort to clean since it is one single unit rather than numerous smaller ones with difficult-to-reach cracks. Simply power wash it and you'll be back enjoying your oasis in no time!
Concrete will stand up to the harshest of winters and is crack-resistant. In addition, concrete is easier to upkeep than wood because you don’t have to worry about staining or wood rot. Concrete outlasts other building materials by decades and strengthens with time. It will never burn, corrode, or decay.
Furthermore, concrete for your backyard retreat provides a plethora of design possibilities. It can be color-matched to complement a home's exterior or landscaping as well as embossed or etched to seem like other common paving materials including brick, flagstone, slate, and tile.
Here are 3 projects you can schedule right now to enhance the enjoyment of your backyard.
A concrete patio creates the perfect spot for relaxing and hosting friends and family. Consider the concrete patio as an optimal flooring choice for the extension of your indoor space to outdoor. With a custom patio, you can easily create/make/shape/ an outdoor living room with maybe a cozy fireplace, plush seating, and special lighting.
Resurfacing concrete while adding stamping and stain can overhaul a dull patio. With a concrete patio as an optimal flooring choice, you can transform your existing space quicker than you think. A stamped overlay provides all of the visual advantages of traditional concrete, but it is placed over existing concrete or can be created as a part of new concrete surfaces. Concrete overlays enable you to replicate the look and feel of natural stone and other materials such as brick, slate, wood, and other natural materials without having to replace your existing concrete.
A well-designed walkway keeps your feet dry and gives safe, simple accessibility to your backyard location. A properly laid concrete walkway forms and defines the destination by connecting various components to form an integrated whole. "One of the most important functions of a path is to link the house to the garden visually as well as physically," says Vermont landscape designer and author Gordon Hayward.
