4 Ways You Can Make Upgrades to Your Outdoor Living Space

Making your yard into an extension of your home can be done with these sorts of upgrades:


It’s the main event, so take the time to do it right and call on the help of experts. Outdoor patios can be one of the top additions to a home’s value. Patios are a sought-after feature when people shop for homes, making them a valuable addition when you go to sell your own home. The type of patio material you choose will depend on what you like, the size of the patio, its location, and your budget. You might select brick, cut stone, pavers, or concrete.

Fire pits

With so many options to choose from, you can use a little help finding unique fire pit designs to make the most of your outdoor experience. If you’re considering putting in an outdoor fire pit, it is a great extra layer making it perfect for enjoying with family and friends. It can quickly turn into your favorite space as an outdoor extension of your home. There is no shortage of fire pit designs options out there, and at Valley Deck & Patio, we can help you bring them to life. Choose a sleek sunken design, a movable fire bowl, or a rustic above-ground pit built from natural stones.


The right landscape lighting can make your landscaping shine when night falls. In addition to lighting pathways and walkways, the right kind of lighting can illuminate trees, gardens, and water features in a stylish way. Lighting can also serve as a safety and security measure, helping people avoid a fall and calling attention to suspicious movements on your property.

Outdoor kitchen

Just like your indoor kitchen, an outdoor kitchen can be a great place to socialize and celebrate in your outdoor living space. With the growing popularity of outdoor entertaining, outdoor kitchen and bar installations have become more commonplace among Hardscape installations. A well-designed outdoor kitchen will let you cook your favorite meals and entertain like a pro all in a casual outdoor atmosphere.
