Designing you a better lifestyle

Stunning alfrescos, patios and decks at affordable prices

Nothing lets you appreciate nature more than having an outdoor room built right into your home. When it comes to livening up your patio with natural accents, what could be better than adding in some plants?

 

Aside from backyard flora, most homeowners opt to add a few splashes of plant life to their alfresco to really take in nature from the comforts of their own homes. Vines, in particular, come to mind when one thinks of outdoor plants for the home. But could vines actually harm your timber al fresco?

 

If you’re reading this, that means you probably have a small outdoor area that you’re considering for a patio. Often homeowners dismiss smaller backyards as unfit for a patio, but you’ll be surprised at what you can do with a little space and some clever planning.

At a time where it’s easy to become very tired of the negativity surrounding the election, and it gets exhausting listening to two political parties telling us how bad the world might become if the other is elected, it’s also the perfect time to start on a project like your new alfresco!

Many years ago technology was developed for living quarters in mining areas where well-insulated roof designs would help the workforce survive the heat in between shifts.

The solution: a plastic coated steel topped sheet with insulation sandwiched in the middle made its way down to Perth and became a standard addition to the cheap add-a-rooms and lean-to type patios which became popular many years ago.

In recent years there has been an almost universal move away from these simple roofing solutions to more conventional building practices - but why?

With temperatures hovering close to what we would describe as freezing in Perth, the thought that summer is a stone’s throw away would seem strange!

However if you are thinking about designing an alfresco for the warmer months or organising a complete garden makeover its essential to start the process very soon!
