The Perfect Backyard For A Memorial Day Barbecue

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer.

Longer days, warm weather and abundant sunshine are just some of the things that people love most about this season in New Jersey. Summer is also a time for entertaining. Between Father’s Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and everything in between, you have an excuse to invite people over almost every weekend! Memorial Day is just the beginning.

Having the perfect backyard means something different for everyone. Only you can decide on the details, but we can help with the bigger picture.

Serve Guests in Your Outdoor Kitchen

Some kitchens are small and include nothing more than a built-in grill, while others are complete with the works: countertops, a sink, a bar and storage cabinets.

Cozy Up by the Fire

Bonfires have always been a staple of summer nights, and now you can give your guests a more formal experience with a built-in fireplace or fire pit. A fire pit will enhance your landscaping, and keep you warm on cool nights, much like we see on Memorial Day. Don’t forget to bring out the s’mores for the kids!

Set the Mood with Outdoor Lighting

It’s amazing how exterior lighting can actually transform your backyard. Accent lighting enhances the features in your yard, and keeps patios, decks and walkways well lit and safe for visitors. Thanks to outdoor lighting, you can enjoy your backyard space well into the night hours and make everyone feel welcome.

Get Refreshed With Water Features

The calming sounds of water instantly turn your space into a relaxing spa. Plus, you can add fish and exotic plants! Of course, it’s not a bad idea to have a built-in swimming pool. Your guests will surely love a good swim!

 

Love Your Landscape

No Memorial Day barbecue is complete without immaculate landscaping, such as a healthy lawn, freshly planted flowers, blooming trees and shrubs and hardscaping features like paver patios and walkways. This gives your guests a happy, welcoming place to spend their time.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
