Creating an Outdoor Oasis

Creating an Outdoor Oasis


Owning an outdoor space where you can spend time with family and friends allows you and your company to enjoy the outdoors while cooking on your gas grill in Roswell. Here are some tips on creating that outdoor oasis that you will enjoy spending your time in, without requiring a lot of extra time to maintain.

Physical Space


Whether you have a large or small yard, you need to plan out the physical space in your outdoor area carefully. Each option requires different maintenance and upkeep.

A wooden deck can provide a nice finished look to your space and provide an area for seating, a fire pit, and your grill. Required upkeep for a wooden deck includes sealing the wood each year as a way of protecting the wood from the weather.

A concrete or brick patio requires very little maintenance except to sweep or spray clean whenever necessary. Having a concrete patio poured may be more expensive than a deck, and is difficult to do yourself. Laying brick takes some work to get the area level and usable for your outdoor parties and may be more work-intensive than having a concrete patio poured.

Choose Your Furnishings

Furnishing your outdoor space should be fun and exciting! You get to dream about what types of parties and fun times you want to have in the space and choose the best furniture and other items that will enable your dreams to come true. Start with your table and chairs. Options range from tables that fold down to nearly nothing to elaborate glass tables that can fit many friends at once. You can choose folding chairs, lounge furniture, or other weatherproof options designed for outdoor use. A fun option if you are building a wooden deck is to have bench seating built into the design, allowing for a seamless look.

If you choose to include a fire pit in your backyard oasis, there are a couple of options to consider. One would be to build it into the design of your patio space, allowing for a stunning centerpiece in your yard. Use rock, brick, or another fireproof material to surround the fire pit to keep it safe to use. Alternatively, you can purchase a portable fire pit that allows you to place it where you want it. This type of fire pit would not be permanent.

Finally, a gas grill in your Roswell backyard makeover provides the final piece to your ultimate outdoor fun. Prepare to grill all your favorite foods and invite the neighbors over for a bit of food and fun!
