#5 and #6: Gorgeous Pergolas

We just couldn’t choose between these two pergolas. Both add a resort-like feel to the backyard pool and patio areas, creating the perfect outdoor rooms for relaxing. Both pergolas feature EZ Shade Curtains, which allow for easy control over sun and shade intake.

 This in-ground Goalsetter hoop gives this basketball court a professional feel.



#8: The Perfect Outdoor Kitchen Island

With a BBQ grill, sink, fridge and plenty of counter space, this beautiful outdoor kitchen makes outdoor entertaining easy.

#9 and #10: Rubber Mulch Surfacing

 If there is anything that gets the kids even more excited about their swing set, it’s bright rubber mulch. These rubber mulch play areas, one in bright blue and another in deep red, provide a splash of color while increasing the safety of the play area.
