If you’re like many homeowners, you probably dream of having the perfect outdoor living area complete with a paver patio, fire pit and kitchen. A place where you can relax and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. But before you can create your dream oasis, there are a few things you need to consider. In this blog post, we will discuss the four factors that are essential to creating an outdoor living space that you will love!
How Much Room Do You Have?
The first factor to consider when designing your outdoor living space is the size of the area. This will determine how much furniture and other elements you can include in your design. If you have a smaller area, you may need to have a more minimal approach and make sure that everything serves a purpose. A great example of this would be a walkway leading to a patio with a fire pit and seating wall.
On the other hand, if your outdoor space is larger, you can get creative with a more complex design that may include installing a lawn area, planting beds with mulch and a water feature.
The next factor is illuminating your space so that you can enjoy your outdoor living space both day or night! Consider hiring a landscape lighting company to install up/down, pathway, accent lights to ensure that your space looks great all hours of the day.
Finally, consider the type of plants you want in your outdoor living area. Adding a colorful arrangement of shade and ornamental trees along with flowering shrubs can create a welcoming atmosphere and help bring life to an outdoor area. Be careful not to overcrowd the space with plants as this will detract from the overall design aesthetic. In this situation, it’s best to consult with a professional landscape designer to craft the ideal layout for plants to coincide with your hardscape area.
By taking these factors into account when designing your outdoor living space, you can create a beautiful oasis that you and your family will love.
