Top Concrete Trends to Consider for Your Backyard

If you’re looking to transform your backyard living space, consider these top ideas that all make use of readily available, easily customizable concrete!


1. “Stay-cation” Attractions- Many people are choosing to vacation closer to home these days but even more are bringing the vacation to their home. Backyards are being turned into backyard oases. Using concrete, homeowners are building fire pits, outdoor kitchens, built-in BBQs, and slides for the pool. Why pay the travel costs over and over, when you can pay once to transform your backyard into your own private resort!

2. Concrete Rocks- Concrete is not only sustainable, but is also an eco-friendly building material. By declining to sourcing rocks from natural habitats to decorate your backyard, you preserve nature areas for generations to come. Shaping concrete into natural looking rocks will add structure to your natural backyard space, without losing its organic feel. Whether you are looking to add a pond or just some strategically placed rocks, hand shaped concrete is the way to go.


3. Concrete Outdoor Furniture- Many people are looking to concrete to create lasting, weather resistant, year-round furniture for their outdoor space. Tables, benches, chairs and even pool tables are popping up in backyards around the country!

4.Outdoor Fireplaces- Outdoor fireplaces help bring a “homey,” inviting feeling to backyard entertaining.  A modern Norman Rockwell scene can be found in many backyards around the country, as families commune around the fireplace in their backyard. Fireplaces also appeal to the experienced home chef who wants to add brick oven pizzas to their family’s

weekly meal plan.
