Why Vacation – When you can “Stay-cation”?

As a former Unilock® Contractor, nothing excites me more than seeing a beautiful project upon completion!  More and more, homeowners are turning their backyards into their own personal oasis.

For as long as I can remember both as a young child and now as an adult, my favorite week of the year has always been our family’s summer vacation.  When I think of some of the best vacations we have taken over the years, many of my favorites have all included the same things - friends, family, great food, swimming and of course sunshine!  All of these vacations have helped make memories that will last a lifetime!  Rather than spending just a few days or a week away from home each year, imagine a full month or even the entire summer season on vacation…Now you have a “Stay-cation!”

Take a moment to imagine all the wonderful benefits of vacation while in the comfort of your own home!  One of the fastest growing trends in the industry is bringing to life your very own “Stay-cation” destination.  Creating your own custom outdoor living space is made easy with the help of Unilock!  Start creating lasting memories while enjoying the company of friends and family on your Unilock patio or pool deck.  Add your personal tastes and style to any hardscape project by featuring Unilock Select™ products including Richcliff® (image below left) and Il Campo® (image below right).  These products are just a few of the Unilock Select paving stone options available that will help to provide design, color and texture to your outdoor living area.

Remember this helpful hint when designing your “Stay-cation” destination.  Precise positioning of vertical elements including seat walls and pillars create both visual interests while adding function to any outdoor living space.  When your guests arrive, there will be no need to pull additional seating out of the garage or shed.  Seat walls constructed 20”-24” in height will help accommodate your friends and family while making great seating areas throughout your personal oasis!

No family gathering or entertaining of friends would be complete without great food to share with your guests!  Unilock offers an extensive line of Pre-built Unilock Elements that will help further showcase your “Stay-cation” destination.   Whether it’s a simple Unilock Grill Element that will satisfy a brick oven for the chef of the family or the tranquil sound of a Unilock Element Water Feature, these pre-built units are sure to be the cornerstone to any outdoor living space!

In closing, although the opportunities are endless with Unilock Paving Stones and Retaining Walls, some homeowners may find designing their “Stay-cation” destination a bit overwhelming as well.  That is why it is always important to create a master plan when designing your outdoor living space.  Many of the beautiful projects that are showcased online and throughout the Unilock Catalog are masterpieces that have been well planned and thought out, while being installed over a number of years.  One of the greatest benefits of utilizing Unilock to create your custom designed personal sanctuary is the opportunity to watch your project evolve over multiple phases.  Whether simply trying to decide on the next feature to add to your existing outdoor living space or saving the cash to do so, Unilock can help make any patio or outdoor living space become your personal “Stay-cation” destination! 

So why vacation for a week at a time when you can “Stay-cation” for the entire season!
