Any backyard has the potential to become an extended living area and relaxing oasis. Consider adding these six attractive yet practical features to your yard and give your family and guests a comfortable space to unwind and enjoy outdoor living in Kamloops.


Water feature

There is something so calming about the babble of flowing water. A pond, fountain or waterfall will infuse natural tranquillity into your urban oasis. If you don’t have the space for a water feature, use a bubbling rock feature or urn to add some Zen to your garden.


Gazebo or pergola

A gazebo or pergola protects you from wind and rain, making your backyard a usable space in any weather. They also add privacy so you can relax in solitude. These outdoor structures come in various styles, colours and shapes, so you’ll find one to suit your yard perfectly.


Fire pits

A roaring fire provides hours of entertainment and warmth on chilly nights. A fire pit or fireplace can be the centrepiece of your outdoor living space. If you don’t want the hassle of firewood, consider a gas or propane unit. Surround your fire pit with hardscaping elements like paving stones, planters and terraced walls.


Privacy fencing

Relax or entertain out of the view of prying eyes with privacy fencing. A two-metre-high fence made of cedar gives you peace and quiet and adds a natural material to your outdoor decor. Vinyl fencing is easy to maintain and comes in styles that resemble the natural look of wood.


Outdoor cinema

Why watch movies or your favourite television shows indoors when you can be relaxing under the stars? All you need is an outdoor loveseat or sectional sofa, and a projector. Add some popcorn, and you’re set.


Backyard bar

Fix your favourite cocktails and entertain outdoors without having to run inside every 30 minutes. Your bar can be as elaborate as you like, with bar stools, tables and a sink, or you can keep it simple. Consider adding a fridge, shelving, a bottle rack and a table to cut fruit and mix drinks.
