Outdoor Lighting

With the ever-changing world we are living in, it seems that a staycation with your “quaran-team” is the best way to keep those you love safe! Now more than ever, your patio is going to be a key component to spending the warmer months outdoors! Here are a few upgrades we think you and your family will love for years to come:


Outdoor lighting. Whatever the makeup of your outdoor space, lighting is key. No one wants to sit in total darkness at night. Creating a relaxed ambiance can be easily accomplished with landscape lighting.

Work Space

Work area for your outdoor kitchen. A perfect addition for the house chef or griller who would love a place to clean their veggies, prepare their meat and hide away their grilling tools. Place this prep space close to your grill or fire pit so that you can seamlessly move the food from one space to the next. You could even put in a sink to really make it feel like your kitchen.

Patio Roof

Create a roof in rainy weather areas. No one wants to get caught in a downpour. If you're used to rain like we are in Western Pennsylvania, you know that sometimes your evening gets ruined because of it. Creating a roof over your grill or outdoor space allows you to always enjoy your patio no matter the weather.  Pavilions are a very stylish way to achieve the desire for a sheltered space. Be sure to allow for enough roof clearance—you don’t want to burn down the pavilion!

Wine Fridge

Wine fridge or mini fridge. Whether you are winos or foodies, you might want to add a fridge to your space. No need to go in and out of the house for another drink or for what you’re grilling for dinner. You can also keep appetizers cool in a fridge when it is particularly hot out. No more melted snacks to worry about!

Fire Pit

Fire pit. The ultimate relaxation accessory for your patio. There’s nothing like kicking your feet up and enjoying the sights and sounds of a crackling fire. Fire pits bring everyone together for stories or s’mores. You can’t go wrong with this classic outdoor addition.

Grill Bar

A Grill with a Bar. The worst feeling is wanting to be outside with your family and being banished to the kitchen to finish up the meal. By adding a bar to your grill, you allow space for them to hang out around you while you cook. With a grill and bar, you allow your family to be around you without crowding your space. It is a win-win for everyone!
