Forever Outdoors: A Captivating Experience For Everyone

May 02, 2023


With life finally back to normal, we can all appreciate spending time with friends and family outdoors. Whether it’s dining under a covered patio or conversing in front of a fireplace on the terrace, we can embrace the feeling of nature by simply being outside. This can be accomplished by creating beautiful indoor/outdoor patios by applying large format pavers combined with turf from the Evergrass™ Artificial Turf Collection on the ground while adding natural stone to walls, fireplace facades, BBQ surrounds and other exterior surfaces. From taking in some vitamin D to sitting under the stars, 2023 proudly embraces the love of extending outdoor spaces to dining areas, walkways and beyond.
