Ready For Spring

5 Ways to Get Your Backyard Ready For Spring Outdoor Living

Alas! Springtime is finally here, and that means it’s time to get your backyard and patio ready for late night cocktail gatherings, soaking up the sun in your lounger, and BBQ’s with the family. Here’s how you can start to get ready to have some fun in the sun!

  1. Survey Any Damage That May Have Occurred During the Winter.
    Is there any molding on your deck? Cracks in the concrete? Does your deck need to be resealed? If so, now’s the time!
  2. Give Those Bushes a Haircut!
    Trim and cut any out of control garden bed. Trimming will help keep trees and shrubs nice and compact. If you want to add a tropical vibe this spring, add some bamboo to your backyard.
  3. Add An Outdoor Heating Source
    It still remains pretty chilly when the sun goes down, so in order to remain an all-year round outdoor entertainer provide heat for your guests such as an outdoor fire pit.
  4. Give the BBQ A Power Clean
    It’s about that time to throw some shrimp on the barby! Start the barbeque season off right, with a clean shiny grill.
  5. Plan For Your Outdoor Furniture Space
    It might be time to replace your outdoor furniture. Maybe yours is worn out or maybe you’re looking for a fresh look this spring. Either way, take a look at the dimensions and plan for your new patio set!

The Wickers Voice Their Concerns

After Katie picked the burner and fire glass to go with her brand new Oriflamme Fire Table from All Backyard Fun, Thomas jumped on the phone to ask a few questions of All Backyard Fun Sales rep Sarah.

“Is this safe to put on a wood deck?” Absolutely Sarah remarked, it is designed just like a gas grill with all the heat going above the unit.

We are thinking about putting in a pergola, is it ok to put this table underneath a pergola? Sure is, you need about 60” of clearance from the table top to the surface of the material above, so about 5 feet high, you will be just fine with that new pergola.

That sounds great Thomas said, so we will be able to put this Oriflamme Fire Table on the new deck with the pergola, outstanding!

Thomas also had some very important questions about assembly of the table and how heavy it weighed. Sara explained to Thomas then there is no assembly required as all of the units are manufactured right her in the USA, with American workers! Thomas was thrilled to hear that, not many products are made in the USA anymore exclaimed Thomas.

What about the weight asked Thomas? Sarah told Thomas that the total weight was about 150lbs, and the heaviest piece being the granite, two people would need to move that into place.

The Wicker’s Customize Their Fire Pit

February 25th, 2015

 “Keeping up with the Wickers”, an All Backyard Fun Adventure

Katie was thrilled that the Oriflamme Fire Table she chose was the most popular model that All Backyard Fun sells, the Tropical Elegance in the 42” Round. Sarah from All Backyard Fun explained to Katie the custom process of choosing her new fire table was not over, and she needed to choose her burner and fire glass for her table.

Sarah went through the list of burners available, which are the Sun, Flower, Martini Glass, Yin Yang, Star, Maple Leaf, and Fleur di Lis, and the most popular, the Elegance burner. Katie asked about the Elegance burner, “what sort of flame pattern is that”? asked Katie. Sarah told Katie that this was a pattern that would give you a rustic fire pattern look, flames all over the burner and in a random pattern.

Katie said she would go with that model. Although she loved the idea of having that Martini Glass at her next party on her new outdoor patio, she thought the practical choice would be the Elegance burner. After Katie decided on the Elegance burner, it was time to pick the fire glass colors. Sarah showed Katie 24 different colors to choose from, black gold, copper, red, and blue and so on. There were even fire glass with reflective and non-reflective features.

Katie was floored that she could match colors of her patio, house and more. She wanted to really make this table pop with the other colors she already had going on in these areas. Katie had her mind set on the Copper, Gold Reflective, Black Reflective, and little bit of Azuria Reflective, all of which would match the colors of her house and patio perfectly. Great choices exclaimed Sarah, they will really go well with the Tropical Elegance.

The Wickers Buy a Fire Pit

February 4th , 2015

 “Keeping up with the Wickers”, an All Backyard Fun Adventure

Excitement filled the Wicker house on Saturday morning as Thomas and Katie told the kids what they were going to buy for the patio. Johnny, the four year old was thrilled and quickly asked if they can roast marshmallows on the fire pit. Katie explained to Johnny that it was called a fire table, an Oriflamme Fire Table, and I don’t know, but I think so.

Katie could hardly wait to call All Backyard Fun to inquire further about the Oriflamme Fire Table and talk to them before they made the purchase. With Thomas sitting by her side, she made the call to All Backyard Fun and it was answered with a friendly voice of Sara, “Good morning, thank you for calling All Backyard Fun, how can I help you?”

Katie was so excited she rattled off about three questions to Sara about the Oriflamme Fire Table, “What tables do you have in stock, what are the lead times, can I choose any table top I wish?” Sara calmly responded with a confident yes to all three questions and began working closely with Katie on identifying her exact needs.

Sara explained to Katie about the key features of the Oriflamme Fire Table, such as, the self-contained 20 lb. propane tank, the heat source being 65,000 BTU’s, that the burn times last between 10-16 hours, all of which Katie already knew. But there were some new features that Katie and Thomas had not heard before in which they were thrilled about. Sara explained that the Oriflamme Fire Table is portable, can be converted to natural gas, already assembled with no tools necessary for set-up, and even has a bottle opener!

Katie asked Sara from All Backyard Fun to hold for a minute as she had a chance to explain to Thomas some of the additional key features of the Oriflamme Fire Table.
