How many times are you guilty of promising in the winter that the next summer you will spend most of the time out enjoying the sun and eating marshmallows and spend the night just stargazing? 

Instead, what do we do? 

Hide inside with our best buddy – The Air-con!  

We always choose the couch rather than the deck chair, and this is the problem: how are we supposed to enjoy nature at its best. 

If you already have plans- what exactly are they? 

Plans to go to the public park one day in the summer, or probably weekend camping? However, you might not have looked into your backyard as an option! 

If you do not have a proper place to enjoy summers, now is probably the best time to get your deck installation done. 

Summer is the time to enjoy your time with your friends and family.

If you’re still struggling to find a good reason for investing in a backyard deck, we are here to convince you by giving you four firm benefits of having a deck. 


Everybody likes spending time outdoors. Spending time out in the open, swimming, relaxing, reading a book is more fun than a crappy dark bar where they serve bad, happy hour drinks!

With some creativity, you can even make your backyard deck into a home spa. 

Imagine a place that Zen during the summers—soothing, right?  

Think of all the amazing things you can do on your backyard deck. You can turn it into a lounge to watch your favorite football team play, or you can even put up lights and have a fashion show with your girl squad. 


Maybe dinner parties or get-togethers and not a thing you enjoy, but what about a backyard deck? If you sunbathe in the deck, it can help you increase your vitamin D intake, which is essential for good bone health. Secluded, you can read a book + also get a myriad of health benefits.

Plus, did you know that a crappy mood can also be a reason for poor vitamin d levels in your body! 

You can also use your deck for the early morning yoga asanas or some morning stretches. You can even meditate and start your day on a high-energy note. 

Play Time  

Kids in 2021 are glued to the PS4 and Xbox and confined to the four walls of their house. Moving them out to the fresh air is the goal, so why not move the games, and they move along with it. Brilliant, isn’t it! 

You can play board games or the PS4 game even on the deck. Whatever you like to play as a family, you can play on a backyard deck.

Increases The Value Of Your Home.

Home modifications add value to your property, and well your deck is not conventionally a fun addition- it is a cost-effective way to increase the value of your home. 

You cannot deny the curb appeal it gives your backyard, and trust us, even the buyers will notice it. 


If you’re looking for a place to host a party or enjoy a relaxing day with your kids, all you need today is to invest in a good summer deck. Decks & Patios Of Richmond is the ideal company if you want someone to build you an awesome deck and turn your dream of a perfect summer into a reality.
