Red, white, blue, and “decking” out for the 4th of July! A true American tradition of grilling out, hanging out, and of course, the best part, fireworks! There’s no better holiday known for outdoor festivities and fun. With this historical celebration just around the corner, there is so much to get ready for, but who needs all the stress? With all of the relatives, food, and planning it can be easy to lose sight of simplicity and celebrating our history of independence, the very thing that gave us the ability to have this amazing time with friends and family. So how do we give honor to this one-of-a-kind holiday without losing sight of its significance or giving in to the stress? We choose to simply let go and remember!
Like most holidays, there is a reason for the season. This day was made to remember the American dream and all the work it took to get here. All of our veterans that serve our country day after day to protect our inalienable rights, all of our politicians who strive to make our country better, and all of our family that we love so dearly and get to spend this grand day with. So first things first, choose to take a trip down history lane and do something to remember all of the fallen and the freedom. You could do this by putting little flags in all the neighbors’ yards, volunteering at a veterans shelter, or even doing something simple from the comforts of your own home, such as posting on social media to honor this day, or even hosting an in home remembrance “cook off” with friends and family!
Not only do we want to remember this historic day in American history, we want to do it justice. How do we do that? We have a day filled with friends, family, and fun! The first thing that comes to mind when we think of 4th of July is, of course, fireworks! This is a must on this day to get out and enjoy the view of some beautiful bursts of color. But don’t stop there! The 4th of July is the perfect day to enjoy time in your outdoor kitchen and patio! So get out, and grill out. Get the hamburgers going, and the lawn chairs out for a day of outdoor fun. Games, pool parties, or even a small chili cook off just for the fun of it – create your own day and have a happy holidays!
Father’s Day is just around the corner! With Father’s Day comes cookouts, gifts, and of course lots of family love. They always say shopping for women is the hardest thing, but it might be safe to say that shopping for men is the real challenge. Every year we try different things like clothes, shoes, or something else we think they might like, but sometimes cash is just the way to go so they can get something that they truly want. The only thing that money can’t buy is the personal touch. So how do you give Dad that perfect gift that doesn’t only give something tangible, but something that can be meaningful for years to come?
One idea is to get out and have a good time as a family. From going to a nice brunch or even enjoying a fun activity like horseback riding. You could even throw in that special touch of cooking the meal yourself and serving it out by the pool, just enjoying a nice time at your home. If this Father’s Day you want to do something extra special for Dad, consider gifting him that special add-on he’s always talked about. For BBQing with the guys, sitting out with the family and enjoying the nice weather, or even watching the big game in your own backyard, Archadeck offers simple upgrades for all needs or wants. Perhaps that new/improved deck is something that would make his day, or maybe that outdoor firepit is the one thing he’s been raving about. We offer all ranges of prices and a free consultation to meet all of your standards. A custom design is awaiting you, and is ready for you to say yes!
Father’s day isn’t all about gifts. It’s about the thoughts, appreciation, and love towards that one person in your life that you know has always been there and will always be there for anything. Build a memory, not just on this day, but everyday you can with him! By getting him that new addition to your yard, a thought can turn into a lifelong memory, that will extend long past father’s day. Happy Father’s Day from Archadeck of DFW North!
It’s the time we’ve all been waiting for. The pool parties, cookouts, late night stargazing and s’mores can only mean one thing: it’s summer! It’s finally here and there are so many adventures awaiting you. I can’t help but think of outdoor fun when summer rolls around. Outdoor experiences are what make summer, summer! Wherever you live, there’s always something to do, even within the boundaries of your own backyard. Of course, you want that summer fun to be shared with family and friends, but how can you create that simple, yet extraordinary environment that is unique to your home? You create a space that is personal to you, as well as the outdoor spot that will hold all those cherishable memories. Imagine days filled with fun, laughter, and relaxation, whether it be with guests or all to yourself, all in the comfort of your own backyard.
Bring on the burgers! A classic American tradition is kicking back and grilling out. Outdoor kitchens are such an amazing feature to bring this dream to life. These features don’t have to be the lavish, decked-out areas you see on TV. They can be sweet, simple, and functional all at the same time. With our custom designs, we have the exact structure to fit ALL tastes. Get your summer rolling with some great outdoor cuisine!
Of course, summer and the hot Texas heat go hand in hand, but no worries! Spice your outdoor space up with a space of its own. Add a pergola or arbor to give your backyard a nice touch of decor and shade. These structures not only look amazing, but they really do create their own space in itself. Invite some friends over, bring the book club, or add a TV and enjoy a nice afternoon of being outside under the warm summer sun. As promised, these structures come in all shapes, sizes, and prices, so feel free to get your free design consultation to assist in the process. And don’t forget all the other incredible options with this fun summer activity such as gazebos, screened porches, sunrooms, and so much more!
Flowers, fruits, vegetables are some of the beautiful qualities that summer brings. So why not add to that beauty and start your own outdoor greenery? Outdoor gardens are a great way to pass time, and they allow for a fun, spring and summer activity not just for you, but even for your kids! Add a garden structure of whatever size you desire to bring color and fun to your home this summer. Go green and grow your own fruits and veggies, and even give that cookout a nice piece of your own work. You could even spice it up by adding an elegant ramp or bridge to the scene, which can of course, all be discussed during your free consultation.
We can’t forget about the main event that we’ve all been waiting for – a pool party! But don’t just settle for the simple pool look, add your dream structures and give your pool the luxury space it deserves. Did I say luxury? Yes, but that doesn’t mean expensive. Add anything from a simple arbor, to a nice pool deck to give your yard the “million dollar look.” The kids have the pool, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have your own relaxing space to lay out and get that golden tan. You could even add a nice fire pit and have a day of swimming, and a night of s’more making and talking around the “campfire.”
