Exterior design for the summer months

Temperatures are continuing to rise and homeowners’ thoughts are turning towards the outdoors. The easiest access people have is usually their own backyards. However, if there is nothing available out there for entertainment purposes, it’s much harder to have fun outside or convince the kids that it’s worth it to venture away from the TV and video games. The solution for this is to create the type of outdoors that can tempt your kids or provide that peaceful getaway you’re looking for.

Jump in a pool

The types of outdoor fun you might invest in should be tailored to your family’s age and size. No matter what the age, however, an aboveground swimming pool is sure to be a crowd pleaser. There are several types hard-sided pools you might choose to install just for the warmer months and then disassemble when it gets cold. Or you could go a little cheaper and get little kid-friendly blow-up pool.

Build a gazebo getaway

If you’ve been endowed with a green thumb and plan on living in your home for a while, Forest, an expert outdoor landscaper suggests building a trellis gazebo. He said, "Anyone looking for a quiet retreat for one or two people will find gazebos . . . a tailor-made solution for a bit of peace and quiet." He also said, "They are ideal for exposed locations, whilst inspired designs add elegance to any garden."

The perfect barbecue location

And if you’re feeling especially ambitious, a raised wooden porch or deck makes a great location for lawn furniture, a picnic table, or a grill. Combining these supplies gives you all the ingredients you need for an evening barbecue.

Throughout the generations, we learned to hone fire to our will, even so much as to gather heat from something other than flames. It’s through this intuitive nature that we created what we know today as the modern home baseboard radiator. This is a brief history of home radiators and their evolution over the generations.
