If you want to enjoy your backyard during the summer months, but you can’t because the heat is too unbearable, you can turn your yard into a paradise by installing a quality outdoor awning. You may already know how awnings can help you cut electricity costs and increase curb appeal, but enjoying your backyard in brand-new ways may be the most exciting benefit. We’ve got great deals on awnings that will help you build the paradise you deserve.
Throw a BBQ
Worries about your backyard being too hot for guests can be a thing of the past when you have an awning that offers shade from the sun. Whether it’s the 4th of July or a random Sunday in August, you can enjoy time with family and friends while staying cool and comfortable.
We offer options that can help you keep flying bugs away from your guests and the food. Awnings can also offer protection in the event of an unexpected shower.
Enjoy a Summer Storm
Thunderstorms are a normal part of summer life in New England, and you can enjoy a few light showers under the protection of your awning instead of retreating to your interior. There are few things more enjoyable than the sound of rain and muted thunder in the distance. Awnings are not suitable for protection during severe weather, however.
Retractable all-weather structures will allow you to use your backyard in all seasons, meaning you can have a backyard paradise year round.
Create a Sanctuary with Solar Shades
When there’s a part of your yard that could benefit from more shade and protection, but a stationary outdoor awning isn’t quite the right option, solar shades may be just what you need. Shades can be customized to meet your specific needs, and they can be zipped on and off or rolled up and down for versatility. The extra protection offered by these fabrics can be just the addition your backyard needs to become the paradise you deserve.
Expand Your Plant Life
Some of the most beautiful plants used for backyard landscaping grow naturally under a canopy of trees, making them unsuitable for yards drenched in sunlight. With an outdoor awning, however, you can enjoy a wide range of flowers that need shade without worrying about them drying out and dying during the summer. Amethyst flowers, begonias and flowering maples are all great choices.
Install a Fire Pit
What better way is there to enjoy a nice summer evening than to sit around a fire pit with friends and family? While your awning is a great retreat from the heat during the day, your pit can feel like paradise when the sun goes down and the temperatures start to drop.
Your guests and family will love the camping-like experience. You can create a fire pit in your backyard with our easy-to-follow guide and you'll also be able to take shelter away from the fire underneath your awning all while enjoying a delicious s'more.
