Create Outdoor Living Spaces for All Seasons

Maximize your outdoor living spaces by adding features that will extend them for use year round. Try adding features, such as patio heaters, overhead coverage, wind blockers and comfortable seating. Entertaining or relaxing outdoors should not end when temperatures start to drop.

Because entertaining and getting social is a bit different this year, many homeowners are enhancing their outdoor living spaces so they can safely gather while social distancing and minimizing risk. Sure, it is getting cold out. Luckily, there are many ways to stay warm in outdoor living spaces.

Adding sources of heat and lighting will make it possible to stay cozy and warm. Use soft pillows and warm blankets to increase the comfort of guests. Play a game of charades or watch a football game while a roaring fire keeps you comfortable.

A fully stocked outdoor kitchen alleviates the need for several trips back indoors and streamlines entertaining. Be sure to install plenty of lighting to extend gatherings into the evening hours. Safely light pathways and patios to avoid falls and injuries. Some of our clients have even gone as far as installing radiant heating systems that will melt snow as it lands and keep ice from forming.

DiSabatino Landscaping, along with Esposito Masonry, has been quite busy helping Brandywine Valley homeowners create year round ‘safe’ outdoor living areas. Outdoor spaces with features, such as pavilions, gazebos and screened outdoor rooms.

Now is the Perfect Time to Create an Outdoor Living Space – 7 Options to Consider

With the summer days waning and the cooler fall weather waxing (hopefully soon), now is the perfect time to create that outdoor living space you have always wanted. Outdoor living makes for a healthy lifestyle.

Think about how enjoyable these soon to arrive cool evenings with family and friends around a roaring fire will be. A comfortable outdoor living space that enables relaxation, as well as socializing distancing, is just what the doctor ordered for these challenging times.

Investing in some new outdoor living features allow homeowners to create an outdoor atmosphere that makes every day feel like a vacation. The best place to start when creating an outdoor living area is to determine your unique needs. Create a well-thought out custom design to reflect your style and taste.

Take a look at some of the following options when creating your own unique outdoor living space.

7 Outdoor Living Space Options to Consider:

Custom pavilions by DiSabatino Landscaping - Lighting_Wang

1) Comfortable Seating Area

First, create a comfortable seating area for family and friends to relax and enjoy the ambient sounds and nature. More than likely, you will want some sort of cover to protect your outdoor living space from the elements.

2) Protection from the Elements

Consider adding a large umbrella, pergola or pavilion that will enable enjoyment no matter what the weather conditions may be. Perhaps you would prefer a privacy wall or trellis to add a little ‘old world’ flair. Maybe you would like to add a little nautical theme by hanging a few colorful canvas shade sails. Whatever floats your boat, some sort of protection from the elements is essential to creating an outdoor living area.

3) Safety Lighting and Ambiance

When designing your outdoor living area, do not forget the lighting.  Navigating a dark pathway is a safety issue.  Landscape lighting such as Path lighting and soft ambient lighting will enhance your outdoor oasis and extend your enjoyment into the evening hours.

4) Fire Feature

An outdoor fireplace or fire pit not only adds to the ambiance of your outdoor living space, it extends it usability into the cooler weather. On top of that, it can serve as a cooking option. Campsite meals and roasting marshmallows are a great way to create happy memories and enhance family bonds. Many homeowners are going the modern route, by installing beautifully designed fire pit tables. Whatever your style, a fire feature in your outdoor living space is highly advisable.

5) Outdoor Kitchen or Bar

Entertaining outdoors is a lot easier if you have the amenities nearby. That is why we usually advise some sort of cooking and refrigeration appliance close to your outdoor living area. A bar set up with everyone’s favorite beverage or an outdoor kitchen with all the cooking and serving utensils makes for easy entertaining. It eliminates the need to make several trips inside to access food and drinks.

6) Entertainment Center

An entertainment center set up with television, stereo and possibly even a karaoke machine will be a great enticement for family and friends to hang out in the backyard. A disco ball and dance floor might not be a back choice either!

7) Water Feature

Whether you go for the whole shebang … in ground pool with cascading waterfall and Jacuzzi or a simple bubbling urn fountain, a water feature in your outdoor living space will add the soothing sound of running water.

Many homeowners are seeing the value of creating outdoor living areas and in doing so are using all types of unique water features to enhance their space. Likewise, these water features, such as a rain curtain or deck jets with LED lighting add a special ambiance in the darker hours of the day.

With outdoor entertainment being in high demand, adding one or more of these water features to your outdoor living area can make for many memorable occasions in your own backyard. Don’t forget to explore the lighting options to enhance any water feature you install.
