Deck Surrounding Pool

Improve the aesthetic value of your backyard with a deck surrounding your pool.  A space where you can lounge, easily go in and out of your pool from any side, and transform the whole poolside experience.   You could even have a hot tub installed right next to the pool – built right into the deck!  Enjoy relaxing evenings after a long day by warming up in your hot tub on cooler nights.

Estimated cost to build: $3000 – $20,000

A pergola encloses an area of a porch or a deck, creating a small room-like space with screened sides and/or outdoor fans.  We have seen this space used differently depending on your style.  It can be a completely open modern pergola with exposed wooden beams open to the skies above.

 Alternatively, your pergola can be an outdoor living room surrounded by flowers and vines. Make this your favorite place to enjoy the outdoor air and the starry night.  

Outside Bar

Last but certainly not least, turn your backyard into the hottest meetup spot for your family and neighbors with a luxury outdoor bar.  A wooden roof, a stone top, and few barstools and your guests can enjoy their cocktails at your new venue.  A backyard feature like this kind of makes it makes it feel like you are in an all-inclusive resort!

Estimated cost to build: $3,000 for a simple bar to $35,000 with plumbing, electrical, and gas
