Running out of space for social gatherings? Now more than ever, people want to spend more time outside. Instead of throwing get-togethers inside, why not create an outdoor space fit for entertaining? Turning your backyard into an awesome hangout spot for friends and family can seem like a tough project, but it doesn’t have to be. With any or many of Natural Concrete Products, your backyard will be host-worthy in no time.
Check out our tips and inspiration:
Don’t make your friends stand around on itchy grass and forget about pouring a plain slab of concrete. Our Patio Paver Kits are a quick and easy way to create the perfect party pad. From the Old English design of Cass Stone, to the rustic, weathered look of Barnwood Plank, you’ll surely find a profile that matches your style.
If you’re striving for a more traditional look, Brickstone is a go-to. Although it looks like these bricks have been individually laid out, they come in paver form, eliminating the tedious work of laying one brick at a time.
Rundle Stone is a great option for creating a clean, sleek patio.
Going for something unique? The Rock Star Collection definitely has you covered.
Some of our pavers can be laid in different patterns so you can create your own look! Use our installation guides for paver pattern options and step by step instructions.
Perhaps the most important part of creating a great entertainment space is the seating. Nothing is worse than sitting in an uncomfortable chair all night…besides not having the option to sit at all.
Multiple seating areas will help increase the amount of time you and your guests will spend enjoying the great outdoors. If you’re afraid of losing the coziness of being indoors, just add some throw pillows or cushions to your outdoor seats!
Our Seat Walls are a great option for capturing that built-in, natural look, and you won’t have to worry about durability in different seasons.
We’ve also seen people use our Columns to create a unique stone/wood bench, great for fitting many guests around a fire pit.
A great party also needs great food! However, when dinner time rolls around, the process of getting food prepared can be frustrating, as the host often has to miss out on a chunk of the party. Instead of disappearing from the gathering, you can bring the kitchen outside! With an outdoor kitchen space, you can still enjoy the party without having to constantly run off and check on the food.
Our Retaining Wall Blocks are great for creating outdoor counter-tops, islands, and bars. This is where you can get really creative!
When the sun goes down, it’s time to gather around the campfire. Fireside story-telling, making s’mores, and roasting hot dogs will never get old. Fire pits are a big attraction for all ages, plus, they can be enjoyed all year-round. Your fire pit is sure to be the highlight of the night and your guests will be wishing they had one of their own.
NCP offers many different styles of Fire Pit Kits that are easy to install and fit into your designated space.
Whew! Now that you’ve thrown the best block party ever, all that’s left to do is to sit back, relax, and enjoy your outdoor living space.
