You've officially switched from heater to A/C and swapped the down comforter on your bed for a summer quilt. You've even noticed that the lawn is green and the trees are budding. It's time to make use of your outdoor space again. Its design does depend, however, on the style of your entertainment space.
Informed by the size and features in your backyard, this guide will offer suggestions on where you can find the perfect outdoor furniture, decor and inspiration in the Dallas Design District.
If You Have a Spacious Backyard
Imagine your very own landscaped oasis. If you have enough land, the possibilities are virtually endless. Make sure you zone your space to break it up into different uses by establishing pathways. This way you can use the space to its full extent. Shrubs and trees can act as borders, and hardscape materials can mark out key areas such as dining, relaxing, playing, etc. Since you have the room, include a pergola, canopy or trellis. Brown Jordan Structures has kits and shade structures in both aluminum and fiberglass to fit your outdoor entertaining style. Visit Again and Again for unique, vintage decor items you could easily repurpose as outdoor design elements, such as a brass sculpture.
If You Have a Yard with a Pool
Nothing makes lounging by the pool better than full access to a bar and grill. To create your own poolside epicurean hotspot, invest in an outdoor kitchen space. Brown Jordan has a full selection of cabinetry, cooking, cooling and entertainment options. From grills and burners to refrigerators and icemakers to sinks and bartending stations, hit up Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens to craft a luxurious at-home getaway.

If You Have Limited Space
Not all summer nights are warm. To beat the occasional chill, curl up beside a fire pit alone with a good novel or together with friends and a bottle of wine. Brown Jordan has more than a dozen choices in different shapes and sizes in addition to all the outdoor fireplace accessories you might need.
