All Backyard FunWhen it comes to redecorating, renovating and sprucing up our homes, the yard or patio often is the last to be addressed. Yet if we knew how profoundly we could affect our outdoor living spaces – making them truly more livable – we’d probably start there. 

All Backyard Fun is precisely in the business of helping its customers create outdoor living spaces where everybody wants to be. After all, what’s the point of having a beautifully manicured yard that sits empty save for a few squirrels? Now that spring has sprung, perhaps this Boulder-local company can help you transform your patio and yard into a cozy, beautiful place that begs for gatherings all year-round.

“A lot of our customers are looking for high-quality patio furniture that can be customized to fit their patios, says owner Jolene Nielsen. For many of our customers in the Boulder area, we have been able to do in-home visits and actually find pieces and fabrics that will go best in the area they are looking to place their fire table or outdoor patio furniture. It’s been fun for the customers and they like the extra customer service we offer.”

AllBackyardFun2All Backyard Fun has been an online retailer since 2006. The company put down roots in Boulder in 2007 and was very well received by the community. “Business has been amazing and has exceeded our expectations,” says Nielsen. 

‘The Boulder and Denver Metro area has really been supportive for both retail and commercial accounts. We have found that some customers are driving 45 miles to visit with us in person. “

A visit to the company showroom or website will have your head swimming with ideas and products you might not have seen before.  Oriflamme fire pit tables are easily among the company’s most popular items. Choose a pre-designed table or design your own! Oriflamme’s distinctive blue flame is calming – some would say mesmerizing – and adds a wonderful splash of color on the grayest of days. All Backyard Fun specializes in fire, so to speak. Its selection of fire tables, fire pits (including gas), and fire rings is peerless in the Front Range.

AllBackyardFun3All Backyard Fun continues to add pieces to its own extensive line of patio furniture with chairs, lounges, dining sets, recycled furniture, tables, sofa sectionals and more. “We are very competitive and offer thousands of items through our catalogs that cannot be seen online or in store,” Nielsen explains. “We offer hundreds of fabric choices and fifteen different lines of patio furniture and outdoor accessories including our new outdoor gel torches. We can find our customers just about anything at factory direct pricing.”
