Stunning Patio Ideas and Backyard Transformations for 2020

Patio Ideas and Backyard Transformations for 2020

 

Although it’s still fairly cold out, summer is indeed right around the corner. With that in mind, many people are already looking for ways to upgrade their homes to be ready for the season of outdoor fun. When it comes to home summer renovations, of course, the patio and backyard are two of the most common places homeowners look to upgrade first.

 

To help you as you plan to make some possibly much-needed renovations to your home, we at 9 Brothers Building Supply are here to help. Below you’ll find some great examples and ideas of patio and backyard transformations to pull inspiration from––just in time for the summer season to come.

#1: Add coziness to your patio with a fire bowl

 

Sure, fire pits are a great addition to any patio. But if you really want to add some magazine-worthy flair to your patio scape, why not opt for a fire bowl instead? Unlike a fire pit, you can place a fire bowl wherever you need it to be––it’s portable. You can opt for a softer round fire bowl––such as this Mezzaluna Fire Bowl––or you can opt for a minimal square fire bowl––such as this Bloc Fire Bowl. Both great options and are made by Eldorado Stone.

 

#2: Upgrade your flooring with patio pavers

 

For many homes, the patio flooring is rather simple, being made of either wood or solid concrete. If you really want to upgrade your patio’s appeal and aesthetic, then arguably one of the best upgrades you can make is to change your patio flooring to patio pavers instead.

 

Patio pavers, simply called “pavers” in many cases, are small pieces of brick, stone, or another material that are laid on the ground to create the flooring. Due to the unique shapes and patterns of the paver materials used, pavers add almost instant appeal and uniqueness to your patio.

 

If you’re going for a more natural or rustic look, Cambridge’s Nor Stone patio pavers are a sure bet. For a more elegant appeal, try the brand’s Diamond-cut pavers in the onyx colorway.

 

#3: Show off your grill-master skills with an outdoor kitchen

 

If there’s anything that never fails to bring people together, its food (why do you think the kitchen is the most-frequented room in any home?). So why not bring the joy of food and togetherness to your outdoor backyard and/or patio setup?

 

Especially if you’re a grill fanatic, adding an outdoor kitchen to your backyard setup is a no brainer. They’re spacious, durable, and extremely useful, helping you to prepare and cook foods that you otherwise couldn’t make in your indoor kitchen.

There are many different styles of outdoor kitchens, so find one that meets your taste and needs. Nicolock’s Verona Outdoor Kitchen is a powerhouse, providing all you would need in an outdoor kitchen. If you prefer to keep it simple, the Verona Grill Island may just be everything you need and more.

 

#4: Opt for pergolas for an unconfined lounge area

 

Pergolas are a style of roofing for patios that are truly unique. Unlike a traditional ceiling that completely blocks out the sun, pergolas boast a lattice/crossbeam construction, providing a bit of shade while still allowing the warmth of the sunlight to enter through.

 

Especially if you want to make a smaller space appear larger, pergolas are a great option. You can even train some climbing plants to grow and weave throughout the structure for even greater appeal. Nicolock offers pergolas that are extremely durable and appealing.

 

Over to you

 

So there you have it-––these four ideas for backyard and patio upgrades will help to truly transform your outdoor living area into a comfortable, stylish, and enjoyable setting that is sure to be your family’s favorite place to hang out. And if you’re looking for materials to start on your outdoor renovation project, 9 Brothers is at your service.

 

Stop by one of our two store locations––Brentwood and Riverhead––to see and feel these and more products in person. We’re always happy to help. In fact, we guarantee that you’ll receive great service that you wouldn’t find anywhere else.

Outdoor Backyard Ideas: Top 4 Trends for 2020

 

With the new year and decade upon us, most of us are wanting to start it off right with some self-improvement. For some folks, this self-improvement may look like going to church more, reading more books, losing some weight, or maybe even waking up earlier. 

For many others, however––including us at 9 Brothers Building Supply––improvement in the new year means finally working on that backyard to (finally) make your landscaping dreams come true. 

However, if you’re new to the whole landscaping thing or if even if you’re hitting a creative block, you may not know where to begin with this improvement. Lucky for you, we’re here to help. 

To help you as you plan for your backyard dream come true, 9 Brothers Building Supply has done some research to find the trendiest and most ideal trends for outdoor backyard landscaping. 

Without further ado, let’s take a look at four of the top outdoor backyard trends for 2020. We’ll also provide you with some product recommendations to help you get your dream outdoor backyard project up and running in no time. Let’s dig in. 

#1: Outdoor Fire Pits

If you don’t have a fire pit in your backyard landscaping plan, it might be time to add it in. Especially in 2020, an outdoor fire pit is one of the trendiest additions to add to your setup. Not only will it look beautiful and adds elegance to your backyard, but it will also make your backyard a more inviting place to be, encouraging you, your family, and your guests to lounge around the fire pit in those chillier nights. 

9 Brothers Building Supply recommends the Infinity Bowl by Eldorado Stone. As its name implies, the Infinite Bowl has limitless design applications, fitting in perfectly wherever you put it. Its round shape promotes engaging conversation and will help to soften your backyard landscape. It comes in either weathered or textured Travertine finishes so you can choose which works best for your setup. 

#2: Patio Pavers & Pool Coping

In order to have a finished look to your outdoor backyard landscape, it’s important to lay down a beautiful pavement and flooring in the process. For this, we recommend using patio pavers and pool coping (which marries the patio to the water surface of your pool) such as what the popular manufacturer MSI offers. 

Not only do pavers and pool coping look elegant and attractive, but they are also durable time-savers as well that premade and ready for you to lay down. MSI offers a range of pavers and pool coping that come in either matching or contrasting finish options––such as slate, limestone, marble, travertine, or porcelain––for a truly unique look. 

#3: Retaining Walls

Especially if you have an outdoor backyard landscape that comes with extreme changes in elevation, retaining walls are an absolute must. Also, retaining walls just so happens to be one of the trendiest additions for your landscape.

One great retaining wall example that we carry is the Concord Wall by Unilock. Featuring a built-in setback design, the Concord Wall bu Unilock automatically forms the correct slope to match your landscape, which ensures a very stable and durable retaining wall. The Concord Wall is very popular in the landscaping industry, allowing landscapers to form elegant curved walls and steps to accommodate for changes in landscape elevation. 

 

#4: Outdoor Kitchens

One of the biggest challenges in outdoor backyard landscaping is to bring the warmth and comfort of the home to an outdoor setting. Aside from adding a fire pit, having an outdoor kitchen installed is one of the easiest ways to turn your outdoor backyard setting into a true extension of your home. 

There are many modulated outdoor kitchen options available to fit with your situation. If you have less real estate to work with, the Metropolitan Signature Kitchen by Eldorado Stone 12’ linear kitchen designed to save space. Or, if you have more room to work with, an elegant L-shaped kitchen such as the Coastal Ranch Signature Kitchen (see images above) by Eldorado Stone is a great choice. It also just so happens to be one of our best-selling kitchens It comes in 7 different pre-veneered colors, and comes in unclad which allows you the flexibility to put any stone veneer on it.

Normally these gas powered outdoor fireplaces have a hose that travels under the soil or your patio - to a hard-piped fuel delivery service line. Let us help you plan carefully! If you had to take up a section of your patio to access a gas line, it wouldn’t be feasible.

What you need to know before purchasing:

Fuel Source: fire pits are offered in propane/gas, natural wood, or charcoal (for grilling) as a fuel source. Traditional wood/charcoal/pellet fire pits are easier to set up, and have a natural feel to them; however require cleaning and maintenance.

Propane/gas fire pits are much nicer, burn cleaner, and ignite instantly; making them especially desirable in commercial and residential applications alike. However, they require some planning to install, and a professional hook-up. Normally these gas powered fire pits have a hose that travels under the soil or your patio - to a hard-piped fuel delivery service line. Let us help you plan carefully! If you had to take up 30 feet of patio to repair a fire pit, it wouldn’t be feasible, would it?
