At a time when even more cruise ships are being built to meet the need of people wanting to get away from it all, many others are re-discovering their own backyard. Families are choosing “staycations” over vacations. Many are choosing to not be taken away from the oasis they have personally built and own.
Backyards have not always been for recreation. Actually up to the 1940s, people who had some small amount of land in the back of the house used it to grow food. The backyard was a place for work not fun. As History Of The Backyard (As We Know It) says “In the late 1800s and up to the end of World War II, even those not living in strictly rural settings used their backyards as spaces to support the economies of their households. This meant food gardens that would support the appetites and nutritional needs of everyone living there. The same went for livestock, with those animals who provided eggs, meat, and milk. Even animals need a place to crash. The backyard was it.”
These days, the backyard is our place of rest and relaxation. We can set up mini versions of a baseball field, a volleyball court and many other recreational activities. We can also build an outdoor living space, like a kitchen or living room complete with a flat screen TV. Our backyard can be just about anything we can imagine.
We want to be in the backyard even if the temperature is cold. To satisfy that requirement, an outdoor heater is just the answer. The Lava Lite KD Patio Heater is a liquid Propane Gas Patio Heater. The Lava Lite KD can be utilized all year-long in the comfort of your outdoor environment. Surrounding the tube are steel grills that never get hot and put a safe distance between you and the flame encased in weather resistant glass. Adding to the appeal of Lava Lite KD are chrome reflectors at each inner corner of the unit, which visually enhance the flame by dispersing the light and adding an ambient glow. Safety is further ensured by the built-in SafeTilt switch, which shuts down the unit if it tilts or falls over.
