Creating your Dream Outdoor Space

Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start to the summer. It’s definitely something to look forward to.  Once the cold weather settles in, who doesn’t start daydreaming of warm summer nights with dinners outside and kids swimming or playing in the yard. There is something about the warm air that makes us more relaxed. Sprucing up the outside of your home is an easy way to add additional value to it and you get to sit back, relax and enjoy all the sights and sounds!
With that being said, there is never a wrong time to start thinking of your outdoor dream space but lets face it, when you are stuck inside on those cold winter nights, it does give you something to look forward to.
In this Newsletter we teamed up with  Liquidscapes to discuss your outdoor space and all that Landscaping Professionals can do to transform your space from average to beautiful.


When it comes to your outdoors, there are so many options and personal decisions that you need to think about in order to make the space exactly what your families’ needs and wants are.
Do you have space for a pool or spa and is that something that is necessary for you?
Do you like to entertain? Having a covered porch or patio area with an outdoor kitchen is a great idea. It brings the inside living out and allows you to enjoy all the glory of nature.
Do you need privacy or want to add a fence? Having natural fences like tall local trees  and bushes creates a softer look than a typical fence and can even be added in front of fences as an additional barrier.
Do you have young children who need to have open grassy space for sports games and a swing set?
Do you enjoy gardening and lots of foliage? Creating custom flower boxes throughout your yard is a fun way to add color.And don’t forget the lighting! This seems to be forgotten way too often. You want to be able to enjoy those long summer nights and adding lighting is a great way to do that. It can be simple along a walkway or around a patio, or a fire feature for natural light.
As you know, the list can go on and on and your wants and needs can be as elaborate or as simple as you see fit but even making small changes to your yard can make a big difference.
