When it’s time for a break from the sun, make sure your backyard has some shade! BJ’s selections of arbors, pergolas and even gazebos can help turn your backyard into the ultimate place to relax and recover, with fabric-topped gazebos like the one shown above to more permanent fixtures made of wood, canvas or even steel!

Fire Pits & Heaters

As much as we love the warm spring and summer days, this is Pittsburgh after all, and it can get chilly at night! Warm up your backyard with a fire pit or heater from BJ’s to make sure you can stay out as late as you’d like. This black and gold outdoor fireplace is perfect for any yard, and thanks to its heavy-duty construction and square fire pit, it provides continuous warmth and comfort.

Outdoor Decor

Unfortunately, we’re not all meant to be gardeners, and if you struggle to keep your greenery alive year after year, why not upgrade to some artificial topiaries? Your backyard will look lush and well-designed, and no one will even notice they’re fake – except when you don’t spend hours maintaining them! This spiral topiary is even coated with UV protection to prevent fading from the sun, so it can shine in your yard for years to come.

Ready to turn your backyard into the space you’ve been dreaming of? Run (don’t walk) to your local BJ’s today to become a member and start stacking your savings while creating your own outdoor paradise that all of your neighbors will want to visit this summer!
