Summer will be here before you know it! If you’re thinking about building that backyard oasis that you’ve been putting off, let 2021 be your year. When building your dream backyard, there are a few things to consider and ABC Blind & Drapery is here to help you get started.


Give Yourself Privacy

You want to have the luxury of escaping into your own world without worrying about anyone seeing you zen out. To help you achieve this level of relaxation, you’ll need to think about your privacy. High fences, green hedges and even outdoor screens all help with adding a layer of privacy to your yard. Also, consider adding custom Corradi outdoor blinds, outdoor custom curtains or even solar shades to your patio space.


Landscape Your Way

Landscaping is essential when thinking about building an outdoor oasis, just beyond your back door. Your landscape should reflect your wants and your needs. For instance, someone without a dog might want a bigger pool and less grass, while someone with a dog most likely wants a yard that has room for their pup to run and play.


Block the Sun

We all like the sun for giving us vitamin D and lighting our day, but sometimes there’s just too much sunshine in the Texas summer. To negate the sun, consider a retractable awning over your patio or deck. Awnings are a great way to help protect your outside furniture and to give you great shade while you’re enjoying the summer breeze. ABC awnings come in both traditional or easy motorized options. Wind and sun sensors can be added to not only protect you from the sun, but also your investments while you’re not home. 


Give Your Yard Some Light

Adding lights to any backyard is always a good idea. Whether it’s tiki torches, outdoor string lights or uplighting fixtures, you’ll want some light to take your fun backyard BBQ into a relaxing evening outdoors. 


Customize Your Oasis

It’s your outdoor oasis, so personalize it! Think of colors, furniture and all the fun decorations. Finding, or creating, those perfect pieces for your outdoor paradise can be tricky but ABC Blind & Drapery is partnered with Corradi Outdoor Living Spaces to help you completely customize the backyard furniture of your dreams. From shape, material, finish and fabric, the choice is yours! 


Keeping all these things in mind will help you create a beautiful outdoor oasis to enjoy all summer, and year, long! Take the first step and schedule your free consultation with ABC Blind & Drapery today.
