Around the House: Patios, porches and privacy

July 7, 2015

Decks and patios.

Decks and patios can transform your outdoor space into another living area.  Take the time to stage this area if you are selling your home in spring or summer.  Put the cushions out, sweep the area as best you can, put flowers on a picnic table,  shrubs trimmed neatly… Wisconsinites really appreciate nice weather when it finally arrives, so make your backyard a selling point.  Take a look at this post from Houzz for some wonderful deck and patio pictures.


Wrap Around Porches.

So welcoming! Here are some beautiful pictures of 15 homes with wrap around porches. No, the aren’t for sale.  But maybe they will help you decide if you want one when searching for Wisconsin homes for sale.



Landscaping for privacy.

A private backyard is high on the wish list for many people. Here are some ways to use plants and panels to create privacy in the backyard rather than having to erect an entire fence, which can be offputting, and not even allowed in some areas.
