Whether your existing structure needs some TLC or you are looking to build a completely new structure, spring is the perfect time to install new decking.

This backyard essential offers shade without the feeling of total enclosure, allowing you to better enjoy time spent outside. Arbors can be made from your choice of wood, like cedar, and personalized to fit your home’s style with paint and hardware.

Build a Bench
Every outdoor living area needs a great place to relax, which is why building a bench is the perfect spring project. If made with treated lumber, a bench can withstand the test of the elements, and give you a new place to enjoy. Your bench can be placed anywhere throughout your property, whether near a flower garden, under a favorite tree, or even out front so you can chat with neighbors and tell kids to get off of your lawn.
