Should We or Shouldn’t We Create that Backyard Oasis?


Most research today indicates that outdoor rooms are among the hottest growing requests of new home buyers. Fixing up your backyard with a patio, fire pit, custom kitchen, water feature, etc. will provide self-enjoyment and may prove to be the thing that separates your home from others when it is time to put it on the market.

According to the National Association of Landscape Professionals Harris Poll, 75% of Americans feel that it is important to spend time outside in their yard. 



Realtor.com’s Home Crush survey shows 54% of women, and 46% of men say “outdoor living spaces make them fall in love with real estate” (the most popular feature by both sexes) and 63% of American Institute of Architects members cite “outdoor living spaces as the most popular special function room.”




It is no wonder why we continue to see a rise in residential construction projects utilizing Allan Block products. Check out some ideas from our photo gallery or give us a call to discuss your backyard project.
