Low Maintenance Fence and Deck Tips to Make the Most of Outdoor Living Spaces

September 10, 2013 2:24 am

Would you be proud to show off your backyard, including the fence and deck? Now is a good time to update and upgrade to a low-maintenance vinyl fence and composite deck.

Homeowners can now create the most comfortable, sustainable and low-maintenance outdoor living spaces on the block. To get the most out of an outdoor space this fall, North Texas Fence and Deck provides the following tips:

Make the deck area into an inviting space for entertaining by adding comfortable furniture like a double glider for that old-time porch swing feeling, and a coffee table to place snacks on. Create separate zones for grilling, dining and lounging. Installing a shading feature like an arbor or pergola can keep the area cool and comfortable.

Outdoor lighting goes a long way toward setting a mood and creating a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Homeowners will improve safety and add visual appeal with solar powered lights installed along steps and walkways. Hang strings of energy efficient LED Christmas lights from the arbor and along the perimeter of the fence.

Most wood fence, deck and railing products require ongoing painting or staining and can rot or warp when exposed to inclement weather. Consider rebuilding your deck with low maintenance composite decking and railing.

Upgrade to a vinyl fence for years of beauty and enjoyment without the splitting and warping and constant painting and staining required of wood. These new building products are virtually maintenance-free and can beautifully withstand the elements, leaving homeowners with more time to enjoy it.

Fire pits are becoming a popular and relatively affordable way to create a central gathering spot in a backyard or patio. For larger spaces, a full-size outdoor fireplace might be an option.

By keeping these tips in mind, you can extend the season for your outdoor space and enjoy your home even more.
