There are many ways that we can help you transform your Tampa backyard into a tropical oasis. On top of your landscaping skills, we can install waterfalls, water slides, swim bars, water features with LEDs, beach entries, and sun shelves. All of these features can be added to your pool to give your backyard the perfect vacation vibe. You can have your very own tropical resort right behind your home. However, on top of all these features are some wonderful elements that you can add to your pool and deck area to really take your pool dreams to new heights. When you want to create the feeling that you are at the beach, we always suggest installing a pergola, arbor, or Tiki hut. These additions can truly make you feel like you’re in a completely different place every time you step into your backyard.
Pergolas are lattice structures that provide a small amount of shade. They do not provide 100% shade, but they do provide relief from direct sunlight while still providing the most amount of airflow. Pergolas are also a great area to hang plants and create a mini garden. And with an arbor, you can even plant some climbing vines that could grow over your pergola and provide more shade while still creating a natural look for your backyard. Arbors incorporate a trellis into the structure in order to create a tunnel or passageway into another part of your backyard. Arbors with planted flowers can provide wonderful natural fragrances throughout your yard.
Tiki huts provide the wonderful tropical setting that some are looking for. A tiki hut with a thatched roof provides a great amount of shade while still making you feel like you’re enjoying the sunshine. Tiki huts are wonderful for a day of lounging near the pool and reading a good book.
Pergolas, arbors and Tiki Huts can be used to create a nice focal point for your backyard or pool and provide shade and cover from the weather. They can be customized to include outdoor kitchens, fire pits, ceiling fans, lighting, TVs and speakers. Your design professional can design one that will compliment your home and give you the space that you are looking for.
