The outdoor space is undeniably the most underrated part of a property. If you’re not maximising the use of your outdoor living area this year, you’re missing out on a lot of things. Fortunately, there are several ways you can upgrade your outdoor area.
Convert the free space into a beautiful garden
Growing a garden will require you to handle many tasks like choosing the right plants, creating the perfect soil mix and working on the garden. However, you can’t deny the fact that it’s a highly enjoyable and relaxing activity that you can do with your friends and family. Apart from growing colourful flowering plants, you can also grow herbs like tarragon, basil, and mint.
If your gardening space is limited, you can try growing a vertical garden. Use old pots or plastic containers for your plants. You can also repurpose old wooden ladders if you don’t want to hang your plants on the wall.
Build a cosy fire pit or fireplace
It’s great to have fire pit or fireplace in your backyard. It’s the perfect addition to your property most especially if you love hosting intimate gatherings with your loved ones. You can either build a fire pit on the ground, a fireplace by the outdoor lounge or maybe buy a fire bowl.
If you want to try burning kiln dried logs, it’s better to build a fire pit or place instead of purchasing a butane-powered fire bowl or table. Unlike butane-powered fire bowls, you can enjoy prolonged warmth and wonderful scent from the burning logs. Furnace dried logs are more eco-friendly as compared to gas fire pits or bowls.
Create a sweet hangout spot for all your visitors
Sometimes, it’s not enough to host visitors inside your house, especially if the space is too cramped. By having an alternative entertainment area, such as an outdoor lounge, you don’t have to worry about having a lot of guests at your house. They can stay in your outdoor lounge while they have some refreshments like lemonade or cocktails.
When setting up an outdoor lounge area, you will just need a couple of things such as a comfortable chair, a beautiful table and some vibrantly coloured rugs and pillows. If you set up your lounge in an unshaded area, make sure to install a big umbrella.
Dine al fresco with your family and friends
A lot of homeowners today are investing money in building an outdoor dining area and kitchen. If you love enjoying meals while looking at the view outside, you should create an outdoor dining area. You only need a bistro set, an outdoor kitchen set and maybe a pergola or a deck.
You can eat sumptuous meals while you savour the fresh and cold air. If you have an extra space to work with, you can even grow a living wall. Feel free to use colourful and fragrant plants when you create a green wall.
Start using your outdoor space today. It has so much potential! A little tender love and care can surely upgrade it!
