Your home doesn’t end with your back door — it also includes your backyard. If you think your backyard is just for gardening and the occasional get-together, then get ready to give your yard a total facelift!
Adding these modern outdoor structures for shade can give your house a touch of elegance. Not only that, it can encourage you to treat the backyard as another ‘room’ in your home and spend more time with loved ones outdoors.
Want to have an outdoor living space with filtered shading? Then a pergola is the way to go. Usually mounted on columns or posts, a pergola is a freestanding structure with an open roof.
So, for a backyard that demands an airy atmosphere and an abundance of sunlight, a pergola is the answer. It offers light sun without a harsh glare while allowing for a breeze and accommodating trained climbing or trailing plants.
Who wouldn’t love to relax around a pool on an easygoing weekend? Well, if that sounds like you, all that’s missing is a much-needed cabana. This structure has three walls — which can be lightweight such as fabric, curtains or shades, with an open wall that faces a pool.
The cabin or hut can provide privacy, shelter for a hot tub, and a relaxing space while taking a break from swimming.
