Back yards are being transformed into luxurious extensions of the house
Yucaipa, CA (PRWEB) March 1, 2006
According to experts at The Concrete Network, the largest and most comprehensive source for concrete information anywhere in the world, homeowners in the U.S. and Canada are upgrading their back yards, transforming them into a resort like environment. This trend is led by several demographic shifts, including a desire by people to enjoy their homes more and to put money into homes as an investment.
“Back yards are being transformed into luxurious extensions of the house,” said Jim Peterson, CEO of The Concrete Network. “They’re the new favorite room to relax, entertain, and cook. And the heart and soul of the backyard resort area is the concrete patio.”
As Americans everywhere -- from California to New England, from Texas to Minnesota -- are spending more time at home and more time outdoors, they increasingly see a concrete patio as a great place to spend time. An increasing number of homeowners are going all out with outdoor kitchens, furnished seating areas, fireplaces, decorative concrete patios, pizza ovens, elaborate water features, and more.
