4 resolutions for your outdoor living space
At the end of every year, you dedicate ample time and energy into setting your personal goals and resolutions for the year ahead, but what about resolutions for your outdoor space? As your sanctuary, your home deserves to be made a priority, too.
Many homeowners have a lot of space in their front or backyard that is often underutilized. Here are a few resolutions that will help you convert these areas into aesthetically pleasing and functional spaces.
Enhancing Curb Appeal
Bring your home to life for the new year with a custom outdoor lighting design. Neighbors are sure to be envious when your home lights up the block for all to see.
Strategically placed lights along your porch and front door will help illuminate the house when you are hosting an event or celebrating the holidays.
Add to the elegance of your front yard lighting design with an inviting and luxurious paver walkway that will welcome family and guests to your home for decades to come. Imagine the look on your family and friends’ eyes when they see your gorgeous walkway leading to a brightly lit front door and porch area.
Let 2019 be the year you increase your downtime and decrease your yard maintenance. Green and pristine SP Turf will have your lawn looking luscious all year without the hassle of constant upkeep.
Many homeowners prioritize having real grass, but it can be a hassle. It does not grow in certain seasons, while any shade can cause uneven areas of coverage. Turf looks great all year, requires no maintenance and is very durable. Kids can play in the backyard all day and cause no damage!
Homeowners could also add a paver patio to their backyard. It is an investment in your home’s future, as it will shape the entire area for decades. Add a grilling area with a BBQ island, proper seating and a pergola, and you have the perfect space to spend time outdoors. Simply step outside any time of year to enjoy the beauty of nature and the resort style living your outdoor space has to offer.
Creating a Family-Friendly Space
At the top of many resolution lists is “spend more quality time with loved ones”, and a fire element is a perfect way to help make that happen this upcoming year. A fire pit or built-in outdoor fireplace naturally provides an area for gathering. Invite friends and family over to enjoy the fire, converse over a glass of wine and catch up on life.
When it gets colder in the winter nights, turn on the fireplace and your gathering can go on for hours.
Changing the Ambiance
Adding a few plants that look gorgeous throughout the year, such as the Golden Sword, Green Mountain boxwood, Golden creeping Jenny and Emerald arborvitae can add some cleverly placed beauty to the outdoor space.
Now you can spend time outdoors, sipping a drink in your comfortable outdoor seating, while you stare at the beautiful backyard that barely requires any work to maintain!
