Design Tips to keep your Backyard Organized

Posted February 13, 2020 in Blog, Decks

Your backyard is the largest room in your home, but many of us don’t spend ample time keeping it as organized as the rest of our rooms! If you cannot envision creative storage and organization solutions for your backyard and have no idea what they should cost, you are probably feeling frustrated and lost when determining where to store and protect your family’s outdoor tools, furniture, or toys when they are not in use.

At MasterPLAN Outdoor Living, we believe that you deserve an attractive backyard that is properly organized with ample storage options, and we don’t think you should feel overwhelmed and lost when visualizing the possibilities.

Check out some design options that will help keep your backyard tidy and organized:

Under the Deck Outdoor Storage

When designing and building your deck, you might be considering how to properly utilize the space underneath it. If you are considering a storage room underneath your deck, but not sure what it will look like or how it will work you are probably postponing a deck addition to your home.

Planning your deck project should be fun and determining the best storage options for your deck should not be difficult. This is why we helped this homeowner in Center Valley, Pennsylvania, design and build a custom deck complete with an inverted roof system to keep all their belongings dry!

Multifunctional Outdoor Furniture 

When designing and building your patio or deck, you probably want to envision flexible seating options and furniture arrangements. If you cannot picture where you will entertain, read, or sunbathe in your new backyard, you might be worried that the layout and options you choose will not mesh well with your lifestyle and future party plans.

We understand that picturing the possibilities for your backyard can be difficult. But, when you begin your project with a design, you will be able to visualize the layout of your new backyard and select design elements that mesh perfectly with your lifestyle.

We helped this homeowner design and build an open patio space with plenty of room for relaxing and entertaining. This rustic paver patio, in Easton, Pennsylvania, is complete with a gorgeous custom gas fire pit that is perfect for roasting S’Mores with the family and a stone wall that wraps around to provide additional seating when the family is entertaining.
