All Decked Out
Creating the perfect outdoor space might seem like an intimidating task, but with a few handy suggestions, you'll be glowing up your outdoor area in no time!
Every great backyard makeover begins with a solid foundation. Start by checking your deck. Patios and decks need TLC just like the rest of your backyard space. Whether you’re planning a deck, building a patio, or getting your existing outdoor space tip-top summer-ready, we have everything you need.
If you need tools, lumber, pavers, or other supplies for your outdoor project, make sure to check out your local Co-op Home Centre. And don’t forget to watch for exciting contests this summer.
Now that you have your foundation, it’s time to start thinking about how you’ll be enjoying your space. Think about creating a seating area with comfortable furniture and a social layout that’s sheltered from the elements (it might be summer, but this is still Canada).
If you’re looking to add new furnishings to your backyard, start by answering a few key questions: who will be using the furniture, what weather do you need to prepare for, and how much usable space do you have? From there you can try some simple backyard projects to elevate your space and get it summer ready.
Keep little ones entertained with the ultimate sandbox, so you can make the most of your backyard retreat.
No backyard oasis is complete without a grill.
Whether you’re starting fresh or looking to upgrade your current model, you can find the right barbecue for you at your local Co-op Home Centre. Explore your options and find your perfect grilling accomplice for your summer of backyard cooking.
