Now that the snow has melted and the grass is turning from gray to yellow to the eventual green, and soon you’ll have your yard back. You can almost smell the future barbecues and freshly mown trimmings. It’s a great time to start thinking about any potential yard improvements you may have been considering. Sometimes you need to add a walkway or stepping stones. You might talk about pouring some flower beds or boxes. One of the best options you can choose for your yard is adding a cement pad, of any size, for a variety of purposes. Review your options and prices and consider the following reasons why a concrete pad is the right choice for your yard.
– is your back porch a little crowded with tables, chairs, umbrellas, barbecue grills, bikes, gardening supplies, and other storage? You’re not alone. Think about how freeing it would be to move all of your entertaining tables, chairs, and decor to a separate pad. If your wife complains about the barbecue smell right next to the house, moving it to a concrete pad could solve that problem. If you’re someone who likes to entertain outside you will definitely use a concrete pad in your yard, and you can size it according to your needs. Potential future upgrades could include a pergola or shade, a fire pit, cafe lights, or anything else you could dream of! It all starts with a concrete pad.
Sports & Activities
– if your yard is more likely to host a wiffle ball game than an al fresco dinner party, you still might benefit from a concrete pad. Place a nice smooth, square one with a key and foul line painted on and plant a regulation hoop at the base for some legit one-on-one. You can even go all the way and get a bona fide Sport Court, complete with basketball, tennis, volleyball, futsal, badminton, pickleball, and many others! Pour a long rectangular stretch for your kids to ride bikes, rollerblades, and scooters up and down, over and over. Even if this concrete pad is just a place to store your sports gear and get it out of your garage it can be worth it. Have a dog? Pouring a concrete pad can make a nice dog run that won’t be torn up or damaged by an energetic pup.
It’s totally doable.
Adding a concrete pad to your yard is completely reasonable, both in price and effort. Concrete is an affordable material that is both multipurpose and incredibly durable, meaning you can spend a little now and enjoy the benefits for a long time to come. Even better news? A concrete pad is something you can do yourself (DIY). It is a little tricky to get the process down, but not outside your skill range to be certain. It’s a single saturday project, if planned and researched well. And if you simply don’t have a Saturday to donate to a project, or you’d rather not in case you’re not the crafty type – it’s an affordable project to contract out to the professionals at Hard Rock Concrete. Were you picturing a scary large number if you needed to call in concrete workers to lay it for you? Don’t! Hard Rock Concrete is the best option in Utah for any concrete projects you have in mind.
