Backyard Structures by Yardworks: With Summer Months Ahead, Make the Most of Your Outdoor Space

By Shanna O’Mara

With longer days and warmer weather comes the desire to get outside. It’s the season to enjoy pool days with friends, barbecues with family, nights by the fire pit or lounging under the stars. Backyard Structures by Yardworks is the area’s one-stop shop for outdoor structures, supplying everything you need to spruce up your backyard and enjoy all the summer gatherings to come.

Backyard Structures has been family-owned and operated for more than 30 years. The store carries only the highest-quality products, Amish-built and demonstrating impeccable craftsmanship. Customers can find everything they see in the vision of their dream backyard, including garages, pool houses, sunrooms, sheds, pergolas, gazebos, pavilions and more. The Belford showroom stocks models that bring pictures to life and allows clients to see how a piece may fit into the design of their home.

“The Belford lot has plenty of floor models to cover all the product lines that are offered,” said owner Jamie McAllister. “There are material samples to see, as far as the different woods, vinyl, finishes – whether it’s a stain sealing on a pavilion or custom siding on a pool house.”

Wood and vinyl pergolas are offered in a variety of sizes and styles. Curtains can give these structures a homier feel while privacy walls can be added to enclose the space. A retractable awning can even be installed to protect nature lovers from UV rays. Gazebos are also offered in wood and vinyl. These “backyard centerpieces” come in a multitude of styles and are designed in various sizes to fit any outdoor space while adhering to code requirements. Pavilions are larger structures that bring the comforts of a living room or kitchen outdoors. Pavilions can house fireplaces and furniture, entertainment centers complete with TVs and surround sound, outdoor kitchens, and more. Garden and storage sheds are functional additions to any backyard, but the team at Backyard Structures believes they should also be durable and beautiful.

“We work with landscape architects and contractors to meet the customer’s needs,” McAllister said, adding that at-home installation is available for all products throughout Monmouth County and surrounding areas. 

Backyard Structures has even built public structures including a shady pavilion at Longstreet Farms in Holmdel, a gazebo on Main Street in Keyport and overhead coverings at Liberty State Park. Just last year, the company provided a pavilion for Forrestdale School in Rumson, where outdoor classes were held throughout the pandemic. 

Looking for something to keep the kids occupied all summer? Backyard Structures offers stylish and fun swingsets with accessories to please explorers of any age. Playsets are made of durable vinyl and are a safer alternative to wooden assemblies.

“If you are looking for ideas or you are ready to purchase an outdoor structure this year, you owe it to yourself to make the trip to our Belford showroom which boasts the largest selection of sheds and structures at the Jersey Shore,” McAllister said.

Backyard Structures is located at 513 Route 36 in Belford. For more information, visit or call 732-495-8866.
