Put Together A Relaxing Outdoor Living Space

Nothing quite compares to a good old fire pit and comfy chairs in the backyard. It’s the ultimate way to relax in the summer, where we gather to share our stories, eat good food and maybe sing a few tunes. Here are a few ideas on how we create this picture perfect, outdoor living space in our own backyard.

The Garden

We always like to start by cleaning our backyard and transitioning from winter to spring and summer. Starting with yard maintenance, we make sure our grass is taken care of and get our planters ready for the season. This is a great way to add some colour to our yard!

Comfy Seating – The Muskoka Springs Collection

Once we have a beautiful green space to play with, we definitely want a few comfortable sitting areas to enjoy the outdoors and maybe take a few naps. We love our Muskoka Springs Collection! Starting with the Muskoka Rocker, a comfortable rocking chair built with superior quality and craftsmanship.

Next, we have the Senior Muskoka Chair designed specifically for seniors. This chair is easier to get in and out of due to its straighter seat, high arms, curved back for additional comfort and wide seat. Take it a step further with our ottoman which transforms our chairs into a chaise lounge! This is a great way to add additional comfort by providing support for the entire legs, perfect for a relaxing summer day!! And of course, we provide many colour options to pick from! Take a look at the pictures below for more information.

Tree Swing & Hammock

Another great way to add more seating is with a hammock! We love hammocks because they are extremely comfortable to nap in and the kids loooove it! We also love the look of a wooden tree swing in our yard, the kids claim that one but we love it too!

Fire Pit

We like to place our chairs around a fire pit, because that’s one of our favourite ways to spend summer nights with the family. Enjoying some good old s’mores and chatting away! We also make sure to have comfortable pillows and blankets for everyone!

Outdoor Lighting

This is a great way to make a space more comfortable and inviting. We really love the look of string lights, they add such a beautiful look to the garden and yet very functional! We also like to add a few lanterns and candles for special occasions. Especially scented candles that specifically keep mosquitos away!

Local Outdoor Furniture

We designed a few outdoor furniture collections that you can view here. All designed for specific needs but all have two things in common, our outdoor furniture is comfortable and very sturdy!
