A great addition to every backyard is of course a Cook Portable Warehouse. With dependable storage options in every size, a backyard shed from Cook is the best solution when you need additional storage space. Build the shed of your dreams with this tool from Cook.

Another relatively easy backyard project that many homeowners can add is a path either leading from the home to the shed, garage, or pool. Not only will a high-quality backyard path add value to your home, it will also make it easy to get back and forth.

And once you have the path, next you will need to add a fire pit. It’s the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors in the brisk fall weather. Check out our three keys to building one of your own.

The decision could come down to your practicality, budget, and the appearance of your current exterior decor.

Consider using materials that blend seamlessly into your existing house and other surrounding structures. You also want to think about the purpose and location of the path.
