In Iowa, you don’t typically see warm weather approaching the 70s until late April or early May. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t get your family out of the house to enjoy days or evenings in the backyard. A fire pit or fireplace is a gathering space the whole family will adore.
And if you are ready to create an oasis this year that will beckon you outdoors, a pool heater in your sparkling pool goes a long way to making an early spring swim an invigorating escape from the cold.
Are you ready to get started? Here’s some of our favorite backyard projects that will get you outside earlier every spring.
Fire Pits and Fireplaces: A Gathering Place for Family and Friends
The warmth of a crackling fire is ideal for cool weather. Whether you need a space to cozy up with your partner or a perfect space to make s’mores with the kids or grandkids, an outdoor fire pit or fireplace will help you make memories to last a lifetime. You can create a circle with some big rocks, but this tends to leave you with an unfinished space.
Why not have a more permanent fire pit or fireplace installed that will look beautiful and keep you warm on cool evenings year-round? This includes the early Iowa spring. Warm your hands and hearts outside in comfort with a fire area designed just for you.
Come check out our showroom for some ideas and we’ll help you pick out just the right design for your fire pit or fireplace.
Stay Warm While You Chill Out with a Pool Heater
If you already have a pool but no pool heater, then you’ve experienced those sad spring days where you long to swim in your favorite spot at home, but the water is just too cold. Imagine being able to jump out of a brisk spring wind and into an inviting oasis that envelops your whole body in warm water.
You want only the best for you and your family, and adding the right pool heater is a project that will get you outside earlier every spring.
