Square footage is at a premium thus expanding on what you have available makes sense (cents)! Take a walk around the exterior of your home and envision these five ways to enlarge your space. Make every square foot count by creating a more usable and enjoyable environment.

  1. Connect your outdoor living space with formal or informal walkways. Adding a brick walkway flanked by a stonewall or flowering shrubs, perennials and dwarf trees can give a sense of enclosure as well as make easier access to all the outdoor spaces. Pathways to these spots in the landscape will make them seam together for an overall cohesion.
  2. Add an outdoor fireplace or firepit to the patio area for enjoyment on a cool autumn’s night. Adding adequate space for eating around the cooking area or roasting marshmallows should be considered as well as lighting for night-time entertaining.
  3. Build a custom water feature to appreciate as a focal point including serene background sound. Water brings in wildlife to your outdoor space, making your land a nice backyard habitat for beneficials too!
  4. Build a secluded seating spot in your outdoor living area surrounded by your favorite blooming plants for all season. Using an underutilized area of the space for intimate gatherings or just a place to get some sunshine can draw people outdoors for healthier living.
  5. Add a living green screen of dwarf trees and shrubs to shield for privacy in the yard. A green screen can drown out noise and make a nice backdrop while inviting wildlife into the space. It also gives a clear boundary without being obtrusive to neighbors. From all sides a green screen is easily enjoyed.
  6. Add a cutting garden of perennials and annuals to a sunny spot in the landscape. This garden will give the homeowner hours of enjoyment closeup or from a view inside. Perennials can be divided and multiplied for years of lasting enjoyment with an abundance of bouquets.
