Dreaming up the perfect backyard may be more difficult than it seems. Here are some ideas. You might want to consider adding a porch. This can be an open porch, a screened porch or a porch with vinyl windows to allow use of your room for more time throughout the year. Your porch could then open up to a composite deck using TimberTech. To add to those 2 outdoor living spaces, you could also add a Belgard paver patio for a third outdoor living space. Combination outdoor living spaces are very popular whether you add them at one time or whether you have a multi-year staged home addition plan.

Consider some enhancements to both your deck and patio. For your deck, enhancements can include a bump-out section for your grill. It could also include built-in benches or planters. You might want to consider a metal railing. Enhancements to a paver patio might include a seating wall, retaining wall, built in pillars or columns, or even decorative features such as using an alternate color or paver for your patio outline.
