Outdoor Renovation Ideas for the Summer!

The long weekend has come and gone, and now we are unofficially in summer! So let’s talk about home renovations that help you enjoy your summer….they don’t last long in Saskatoon, so you may as well get the most out of it (and your plumbing).


A properly installed sprinkler system has many advantages:

  1. Have your lawn watered at a specific time, even if you are not home. Studies show the best time to water your garden is early in the morning. So a sprinkler system can water your lawn while you sleep.

  2. Waters your lawn evenly and does not leave spots needing water or drowning in too much water.

  3. Irrigation systems have been known to increase the property value, so if you plan on selling your home in the future a sprinkler system is a smart investment.


Other than the obvious benefits of having your own private pool for social occasions or a quiet evening swim here are other benefits to having a pool:

  1. Swimming is one of the healthiest forms of physical activity a person can do, and having a pool on your own property takes away the barrier of having to drive to a pool and get your exercise in.

  2. With today’s technology a lot of pool maintenance can be automated, leaving you more time to enjoy the pool with friends and family.

  3. A home pool is an ultimate luxury and will like sprinklers, increase the resale value of your home. A pool is fun for social events, great for your health and a smart investment.

  4. Note: If you have children pool safety is VERY IMPORTANT. Please read up on pool safety and children. Here is a good place to start. We don’t want to scare you away from having a home pool (in fact we want to build yours), but we want you to be safe with it!

Natural Gas BBQ’s

  1. Stop spending money on propane. Over time you will save money using your homes own natural gas.

  2. Natural gas is safer and ecologically friendlier than propane.

  3. Natural gas BBQ’s are permenant allowing you to build your deck around them and create a complete outdoor kitchen for social occasions.
