Right now, while we’re still feeling the chill of winter wind, it’s hard to imagine that the summer heat will be here in full force in just a matter of weeks. Though it seems distant, now is the best time to start working on prepping your home for the heat, and one of the top ways to do that is to install a patio cover in your backyard. Patio covers can improve your home for this summer and all the summers to come by providing visual appeal, shade, and comfort to you and your family.
There are so many ways that an aluminum patio cover can completely change the way you and your family experience your outdoor living spaces. Here are 4 of the ways that a patio cover can help you improve your home:
The shade provided by one of our aluminum patio covers is a stark improvement over the shade of a more typical wooden cover. Even in the height of summer, an insulated aluminum patio cover can provide shade that is significantly cooler than temperatures in the sun.
The shade made by an aluminum patio cover will completely change your late spring and summertime experience. The laminated foam core of our patio covers block the sun’s heat from penetrating through to the space below. Wooden covers aren’t able to block heat, allowing it to radiate down to the space below. For cool comfortable shade in the high desert, an insulated patio cover can make all the difference!
Because of the cooling effect of an aluminum patio cover, you’ll notice that you need to run your AC units less frequently over the year. From spring and all the way up into fall, you’ll be able to enjoy cooler temperatures with a lower energy bill. Our insulated patio covers are so effective in reducing heat that they have earned an Energy Star rating!
In addition to the natural cooling effect of our patio covers, they provide the perfect space to install energy-saving solar panels at your home. Solar panel patio covers can help you eliminate your energy costs, without the trouble associated with installing panels to your roof.
The shaded space provided by a patio cover or a pergola can totally improve any outdoor get-togethers that you host. Barbeques, playdates, and family reunions, are so much nicer when you and your friends have a designated spot to relax and hang out.
You and your loved ones will love the chance to sit in the shade to eat, chat, or just take a break from enjoying the rest of your backyard. At a big get together for a holiday or birthday, there’s no better place than in the relaxing shade of a patio cover.
Beyond the ways that a patio cover can enhance the enjoyment of your outdoor spaces, they are also highly customizable. We offer you the chance to select a patio cover that is wholly suited to the needs of your home, from colors and design to lighting installation. Lattice patio covers offer free air flow with a smattering of sunlight, while solid covers give you total shade coverage, and free-standing pergolas can be installed anywhere in your yard that you want to add a bit of shade. Our experts are ready to help you find the best option for you!
Additionally, a quality insulated patio cover or awning can improve the value and appeal of your home. If you choose to sell or rent out your home in the future, an effective patio cover can help you get more offers. A quality patio cover is truly a valuable investment into your home.

As we get ready to welcome spring, homeowners have to start thinking about what they have to do to get their outdoor spaces ready for the new season. Having artificial turf makes the seasonal transition much easier, fully eliminating many of the chores and worries that accompany live grass. It’s amazing how many things about spring are better when you have synthetic grass at your home!
Here is a list of 5 of the best things about having artificial turf in the spring:
No Post-Winter Cleanup
Natural lawns require a lot of attention following the winter months. From the decay of autumn leaves to slushy puddles brought by winter rain, live turf needs you to put in no small amount of Spring Cleaning. Reseeding and fertilizing your lawn takes time and effort--to say nothing about that smell!--when you could just jump straight to enjoying the warmer weather.
Artificial grass looks great all year long, with none of the maintenance work that a live lawn requires. Once spring arrives you’re able to go straight to enjoying your outdoor living spaces.
No Water Waste
As it gets warmer, we’ll start to see less rain. For homeowners with sod, they’ll have to water their outdoor spaces almost every day, leading to a massive spike in their water bills.
Choosing water-efficient landscaping that features artificial grass can save you a ton of money over the year. Even with live accent plants in your yard, whether flowers or native desert plants, artificial grass provides homeowners with a lot of savings in both cost of water and in other maintenance requirements.
One of the biggest upsides having a synthetic lawn, especially as temperatures start to warm, is the absence of bugs. The fibers that make up EasyTurf artificial grass are antimicrobial, meaning that they banish bugs and combat germs, helping keep new pests from setting up residence in your yard.
No one wants ants at their barbeque, to say nothing about other pests like mosquitoes, gnats, and flies. These are nuisances that like to your outdoor spaces into their homes, either in the grass or in puddles and waste that result from having live turf. By making your outdoor spaces inhospitable to creepy crawlies, you’re able to enjoy spring a bit more.
The 100% permeable, proprietary backing of EasyTurf artificial grass means that puddles won’t ruin your yard. Regardless of whether the water is from rain or playing with a sprinkler or hose, water that hits your artificial grass will flow through easily to the ground below.
Without the puddles, pets and kids are able to fully enjoy the outdoors. There will be no worry of muddy paws or dirty clothes because our water efficient landscaping prevents muddy backflow as well as grass stains.
Our low-maintenance landscaping is designed with families in mind. This artificial grass offers a gentle, life-like feel with a highly durable design. Families are able to enjoy their outdoor living spaces to its fullest extent because it offers a great play space that can hold up to even the roughest and tumble of games.
High energy pets can’t put a dent into our low-maintenance landscaping. Even big family get-togethers with all of the cousins won’t be able to stain or damage your turf. Any spills are quickly and easily washed away, while the design of our turf blades is highly resistant to wear and tear. Torn blades and discoloration are a thing of the past, allowing you to enjoy your yard for many years to come.
