Lots of people are looking for ways to spend more time outside and away from their screens. If that describes what you’re trying to do, you might want to look at some ideas for making your own yard an outdoor living space during warm weather. Luxury Landscape Supply has these ideas for making your yard a slice of heaven.
Incorporate Outdoor Living Ideas
When you add a living space to your outdoors, you offer yourself and guests a place to relax and to just enjoy the space. You can do this easily with a couple of seating arrangements and a few small tables for drinks. You can get as involved with this as you like, even up to installing an outdoor television system.
Install a Water Feature
As discussed in our previous post, water features, like ponds and waterfalls, add a lot of interest in your yard. They’re especially great if you don’t have room for a pool, but still want to add a bit of water to your landscape. You can make water features as large or as small as you like, even adding live fish if you want.
Put a Firepit In
Having a space to start a fire safely can be a fantastic way to increase the amount of time you’re able to spend in your yard. In fact, a fire pit allows you to enjoy your outdoor space year-round. The cooler nights in the fall and winter now become accessible to you because you’ve got a way to keep everyone toasty. It’s also a great spot for roasting marshmallows.
Xeriscaping is all about using water conservation techniques to ensure that your yard looks fantastic but that you’re not burning resources that are needed elsewhere. While it’s typically used in drier climates, xeriscaping is a technique that you can put to use anywhere. All you need to do is to pay close attention to the types of plants you’re adding to your landscape and whether they are fairly drought-tolerant on their own.
The right lighting changes the look and feel of your yard. Take the time to plot out where you need and want lighting and decide whether you want the lights to be subtle or whether you want to make the lighting itself a feature. From there you can really liven things up.
