If you plan to spend ample time in your outdoor space during the coming months, you are likely thinking about possible improvements to make. Whether you enjoy intimate dinner parties or large gatherings with family and friends, your landscape design plays a large role in how much enjoyment you will get out of your outdoor space. Here are some features that might be missing from your Rehoboth and Milton, DE area landscape:
Expansive Paver Patio
A paver patio can be the ideal starting point for any other outdoor features you may want in your backyard. Many homes have a standard concrete pad, but a paver patio offers more customization and style possibilities, while also giving you ample space for a fire feature or outdoor kitchen. This masonry feature will likely draw the attention of your guests while giving you something to admire while spending time with the people who mean the most to you.
Strategic Outdoor Lighting
If you plan to spend time in your outdoor space in the evening hours, you’ll want to consider an outdoor lighting plan. The installation of landscape lighting along walkways and stairs in order to illuminate where guests can walk as well as use uplighting to showcase particular plants and trees that you want to enjoy no matter what time of day it is.
For backyards that have outdoor kitchens and dining areas, task lighting and under-cabinet lighting will allow you to prepare and cook meals under the stars, while overhead lighting with dimmer switches give you the opportunity to set the ambiance while you dine with your guests in the evenings.
The addition of a fire feature will not only provide warmth to your outdoor space, but it will also create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere for everyone to relish in. Imagine sitting around the fire watching the flames dance, while enjoying a warm drink on a cool day. You can create the ideal gathering space with comfortable outdoor seating and cozy blankets that will have your guests wanting to stay a bit longer.
Your fire pit can be designed and installed in a variety of shapes and colors to meet your personal taste and preferences. Along with the shape and size, you also have the option of a traditional wood-burning fire pit or a gas-powered option. For someone who prefers the nostalgia of a campfire, you might enjoy the smell of a wood-burning fire feature. However, if you do not want to deal with firewood on a consistent basis and don’t love the idea of smoke, a gas-powered fire pit might be a better option.
Plantings can transform a run-of-the-mill landscape into a jaw-dropping area. With a custom landscape design, you can be sure to have color throughout your landscape in every season. Landscapers can curate perennials, hedges, and shrubs to fill your landscape and add beauty all around.
There are benefits to having plenty of healthy plantings throughout your landscape including the addition of oxygen to the air, reduction in stress, and a beautiful space to relax after a long day.
