Outdoor living spaces have come a long way since I was growing up. The only source of entertainment found in our backyard was an old charcoal grill and a water sprinkler. You were lucky if you had a friend with a pool. But these days backyards are no longer just a place to send the kids when you want them out of the house.
As the trend of extending the livable space of our homes grows, we find ourselves bringing some of our favorite indoor comforts . . . out. Because of this, the options we now have when it comes to outdoor living spaces have changed dramatically. And just like the inside of our homes, many of these outdoor amenities can be enjoyed all year round.
