Summer heat in Phoenix is unlike any other in the country. Temperatures can reach amazing highs and many people can sometimes find themselves cooped up inside their home. With Shea Homes®’ intricate designs and features, many residents find themselves embracing the high temperatures with relaxation and satisfaction. We’ve chosen some of Shea’s outdoor features that will help you tackle the Phoenix heat and build enjoyable experiences for the summer.
Hanging out by the pool is a great way to soak up the summer in Phoenix. Family and friends can cool off from the heat in their very own backyard or many Shea communities also offer a neighborhood pool that allows for a social hotspot within the community to see friendly neighbors. Pool days are the best for residents to embrace the summer heat.

Outdoor Patio Shade
Having outside shade is essential to survive the Phoenix heat. In the summer, nothing is better than having a relaxing area outside that features shady spots so you can take a break from the sun while still enjoying the outside tranquility. Especially as the summer heat reaches its peak in the coming months, it is important to prepare your home with shaded spots so you can stay cool for some of the hottest days of the year.

Backyard Pool

Late Night Cookouts
Outside cookouts are always a great idea in the summer when evening temperatures take a dip. Take some family time or invite friends over to hang out at your patio and enjoy a well-cooked meal and some drinks! Nighttime dinners outside on the patio are always a great idea when temperatures in the daytime are too hot to want to be near anything that radiates heat like a barbeque or grill. Some of the neighborhood pools even feature grills and firepits for those summer cookouts with friends and family.

Family Grilling

Patio Furniture
Before the summer season sets off, set some furniture up in your patio space so that you can have friends or family over and embrace the outdoor life in the evening time or underneath the shade during the daytime. Additionally, in many of the community pools at Shea, we offer seating that includes tables, lawn chairs, couches, and loveseats.
