Creating Backyard Shade

One of the biggest summer time questions is how to create attractive looking shade in your backyard so that all of your friends and family can enjoy the nice summer evenings. 

At K Remodel, we build pergolas and covered porches frequently. The biggest challenge is which looks most attractive to the home owner and fits the look of the house the best. These different types of backyard shade are the most frequent and provide attractive options that fall into a wide variety of price ranges. Price is determined by the size of the project and the materials that are used. 


Beautiful Stained Pergola

K Remodel built this pergola for a client two years ago and we re-stained the wood this past weekend.


 Pergolas are an enchanting and beautiful feature to most backyards.  They provide a unique way to display various types of plants like  different varieties of ivy.  But are also a great feature to help provide  some shade with just a tad of sunlight filtering through the cracks.  Custom build pergolas are a great, permeant structure that not only  produces shade but also add to the landscape. 





Covered Porches are an excellent way to add outdoor livable space that can be used in the rain or shine. These structures have an actual roof on them allowing home owners to extend their home into the backyard. These porches can be screened in to provide a bug free zone or left open to make the area feel more like a part of the yard. Covered porches can be an intricate design in which outdoor kitchens are created or they can be simple, effective, and beautiful to provide a seating area and relief from the sun. Covered porches look and feel like an extension of the home and are both useful spaces as well as aesthetically pleasing. 


Shade comes in all different sizes, materials, and products but they all aim to do the same thing – provide useful shade that helps create a desirable backyard.
