15 Outdoor Projects to Inspire
If you are planning your next Halifax backyard project check out these 15 amazing ideas for any outdoor space.

1. Deck
Just about any space can fit in a deck, whether it’s your backyard or your rooftop. It’s an ideal place to entertain friends or enjoy a cup of coffee before starting your day.

2. Outdoor Kitchen
If you love al fresco dining, make it easier on yourself by adding a kitchen outside. There are plenty of appliances and materials that are weather safe, so you can make the most of Nova Scotia’s seasonal weather.

3. Woodfire Pizza Oven
Maybe you don’t need to bring the entire kitchen outside, so how about a pizza oven? You’ll get a flavor that delivery pies simply can’t compete with.

4. Custom Pathways
Appreciate all of your outdoor space by creating a meandering path. There’s no better way to take in the outdoors than with your own private stroll.

5. Ambient Lighting
The party never has to stop because the sun goes down when you have an integrated outdoor lighting scheme. Even if you don’t like to entertain, you can enjoy reading that book all night long with the right lights.

6. Hidden HVAC
Heating and cooling units are a must, but they can be an eyesore in even the most picturesque outdoor space. Consider a customized screen to avoid having your HVAC as part of your outside view every day.

7. Front Porch
Who doesn’t love sitting on the front porch with a glass of iced tea all summer long? It’s a great way to meet neighbors walking by and can add style and value to your home.

8. Built-In Furniture
Rather than using cheap patio furniture or dragging out your dining room chairs to fit extra company, add some built-ins to your outdoor living space. It’s easy to maintain and can perfectly match your desired aesthetic.

9. Fire Pit
You can extend the length of your outdoor season by incorporating a fire pit into your design. There’s no better way to take the bite out of a crisp fall evening in Halifax.

10. Backyard Gazebo
Adding a gazebo adds a wealth of charm to any backyard. It can be nestled away from the house or even added on to your deck.

11. Pergola Area
For a little shade, try having a pergola built either on your deck or a walkway. It’s an eye-catching way to block the sun so you can enjoy the space any time of day.

12. Trellis
A trellis can add a lot of visual interest in any outdoor space. It’s also perfect for climbing plants, whether you already have a garden, or simply want to add some extra life to your yard.

13. Stone Patio
A paved surface can create a beautiful entry space to a front door or even garage or studio. There are plenty of options for materials, including stones, slate, brick, and granite.

14. Retaining Wall
If your yard is sloped, consider a retaining wall to help even out the elevation. Plus, they add an element of complexity and sophistication.

For an unobstructed view, think about clear glass railings. They can be used on decks or porches and definitely give a sleek and modern look.
