President Barack Obama recently proclaimed June as National Great Outdoors month and Vixen Hill is encouraging everyone to get outside and enjoy the backyard again. “You don’t necessarily have to go rock climbing to enjoy the outdoors. It’s as simple and close as your own backyard,” says Chris Peeples, president and founder of Vixen Hill.
Backyard not looking so hot? Add an outdoor structure like a pergola to give the boring backyard something exciting; something the neighbors will talk about. Pergolas are a popular choice. Installed over a patio, a deck or even attached to the back of the house, an outdoor room is instantly created. “Pergolas are unique because they help define the intended space,” adds Peeples. A dining table or picnic bench located under the pergola creates an elegant semi-shaded eating area. Cushioned chairs and loveseats make for a relaxing area to read, nap or nighttime stargazing.
“Adding a pergola to the landscape improves the look of your backyard 100 percent. And the outside room adds value to the home,” he adds. With a pergola, the decorating options are endless. Hang flower baskets, drape curtains for additional privacy or use the structure for climbing vines and flowers like roses, clematis or wisteria.
Best of all, the Vixen Hill pergola kit, deliverable in four to six weeks, is affordable and easy to assemble for anyone handy with tools. Vixen Hill provides the finest western red cedar wood, which is exclusively air-dried at the factory for durability and longevity.
