This addition to your backyard will make hosting a breeze – you’ll never have to leave your guests. 

Tip: Place your outdoor kitchen under a gazebo for protection from the elements.


Relax in Comfy Conversation Sets

Relax and find your Zen on a cozy conversation set. Great for cuddling up to your favourite person, conversation sets create the perfect backyard haven for one-on-one time with your family. Matching tables make for great storage space or a resting spot for drinks, snacks, or books! Look for deep-seated chairs and loungers for the ultimate place to unwind in the comfort of your own backyard. 


More Than Just a Storage Shed

Create a space that meets your needs by transforming your shed into a mini-getaway. Sheds are no longer just for storing lawn mowers and tools! With the simple addition of couches, curtains, lighting, and decor pieces, your simple storage shed can become an amazing staycation destination. To create a relaxing atmosphere, grab some oversized pillows for the couch and add flowy curtains to the interior walls. You can even add a bar to your shed and turn the space into everyone’s favourite new hangout!

Easy to install and sturdy, playsets come with enough equipment for hours of fun, including a shady canopied clubhouse, play kitchens, slides, swings, monkey bars, and more.

If you’re short on space, there’s always volleyball nets and a pop-up soccer net!
