Are you filled with regret this Memorial Day weekend for not having an outdoor space that measures up?

Memorial Day Weekend in Dayton & Cincinnati OHMemorial Day is a time when we come together to honor our fallen heroes that perished in active military service. It is a time of pride and remembrance. In honor of the occasion, it is common for family and friends to also gather together for the annual “Memorial Day weekend” outdoor activities. To many, the weekend marks the beginning of the outdoor living season. Depending on your traditions, this may include outdoor recreational games, attending a parade, raising a flag, (she should remain at half-mast until noon, as per tradition).enjoying that inaugural dip in the pool, and barbecuing or preparing food outdoors and dining with the ones you hold dear. Among the most favored Memorial Day “cookout” selections include hamburgers & hot dogs, barbecued chicken, beef brisket and grilled seafood.

Deck and gazebo perfect for backyard parties

This outdoor living space is perfect for outdoor celebrations of any kind!

Much like the traditions of Memorial Day weekend that are practiced by most Americans, the backyard deck and/or patio plays a significant role in the festivities as well. Outdoor structures set the stage for outdoor food preparation and dining. They provide a place to relax and engage in conversation. They also provide space for extended entertaining opportunities, especially for large gatherings which you cannot accommodate within your home. Plus, no one wants to be “cooped” up indoors on Memorial Day weekend!  Having the proper outdoor structures in place can quite honestly, make or break the success of how much enjoyment you and your guests get out of your Memorial Day celebration.

If your current outdoor living space is leaving you filled with regret wishing you would’ve upgraded or set the wheels in motion to plan and build a space prior to this weekend’s arrival, all is not lost! There is still time to embark on improving your outdoor living environment prior to the next outdoor celebration you have planned, but now is the time to contact us to ensure you don’t let another opportunity for enjoying those special times with family and friends pass you by.

Another look at how we created the ultimate outdoor environment for entertaining.

At Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio we specialize in designing and building outdoor living environments for the way you and your family want to live outdoors. From classic deck and patio designs, porches and screened porches for added protection and outdoor living spaces that combine varied elements.

Many of today’s up-to-the-moment outdoor living spaces include two or more components to further enhance outdoor living opportunities such as Memorial Day, Father’s Day, Graduation and other special occasions. These can range from deck and patio combinations, deck, patio and porch combinations, and even combinations that include pergolas, fire features and outdoor kitchens.

When we design your ideal backyard retreat we also pay attention to the small things that can add a tremendous amount of function, and beauty, to your outdoor living space. A spacious deck with integrated seating, for example, will allow space for more relaxation. While integrating outdoor lighting into your deck space will add ambiance and extended enjoyment for you and your guests long after the sun goes down. Taking it a step further, we readily design outdoor environments for homeowners throughout Dayton and Cincinnati which include both a deck and patio. Some additional amenities that enliven these combination spaces include outdoor fire features such as fireplaces and fire pits, and even outdoor kitchens! In cases where shade is a concern we often integrate a covered porch or pergola containing a shade enhancement such as a Shade FX canopy. The choices available in our design combinations are endless, and we carefully customize your outdoor living space combination to suit your needs and desires.
