The advent of Spring means it's time for outdoor lounging. You bought the grill, landscaped the yard, and mowed the lawn, but now it's time for some recreation, in the form of lounging about, cold drink sweating in your hand, as your kids amuse themselves so you don't have to worry as you make another cocktail.
But kids these days need constant amusement, so your best bet is installing an epic playhouse -- something like the Outback 6' Playset from Woodhouse -- and available through Incentive Concepts
. It's available in high-quality redwood or cedar, and it has a sloping design meant to maximize play area -- and to stand even on hilly backyards.
As for amenities, it comes with binoculars, a trapeze, belt swings, a tire swing, a rock wall, and even a slide.
Of course, the adults need their own place for recreation. And what better place than seated around a blazing fire? You can pick up Patio Sense's bundle -- including two Coconino wicker chairs and the Hammer Tone Bronze Finish Cocktail Table Fire Pit -- from Power Sales
This chairs including in this handsome set are easy to assemble and own -- requiring no maintenance whatsoever. They're lightweight and easy to move, and their wicker construction makes them durable enough to withstand all weather conditions.
Meanwhile, the cocktail table fire pit is suitable for all seasons. Made of high-grade steel, it can be transformed in the warmer months into a simple cocktail table. But if the sun isn't quite accommodating, the table also has a firebox and a log storage rack. Pop off the table top, add the steel firebox cover -- which is conveniently stored beneath the table itself -- and ignite!
You can make S'mores with the kids, sit around it for warmth, or just leave it flaming in the background for ambiance.
If you find yourself hosting a bigger party, or just want a place to cuddle after a particularly boozy afternoon, then there's the Georgetown collection from NorthCape. Available through Incentive Concepts, the furniture in this set has plush, deep seating and large armrests. They're durable as well -- with a resin weave over a powder-coated steel frame. Yet each piece of furniture can be easily cleaned simply with soap and water.
The entire set comes with NorthCape's three-seater sofa, a love seat, an ottoman, and a coffee table. And it's the perfect place to end the evening before settling into bed.
