Six Ways to Expand Your Outdoor Living Area

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.

Storm Damage and Cleanup Tips

Storm Damage-tree work-winter

When a storm hits, it’s always unexpected unless you have a direct line to Mother Nature. She can be fast and furious and depending on her mood, leave broken tree limbs and piles of snow behind. We’ve compiled some advice on how to prevent storm damage to your home and garden and keep your family safe.

  1. To protect from flooding rain, make sure your yard slopes away from the house and that gutters are clear and draining properly. Improper drainage can cause foundations to crack and water seepage as a result.
  2. Every inch of rain can equate to ten inches of snow if temperatures are 32 or below. How to safely remove snow without busting the derriere is imperative. Take our advice…apply a de-icer a few hours before it snows and this will help melt accumulations up to 2 inches.
  3. Have on hand an ergonomic S-shaped shaft shovel that is lightweight plastic or aluminum blade coated with a non-stick finish to do the dirty work of shoveling out without hurting your back in the process.
  4. Get a tree-health consultation to make assure dead, damaged and diseased limbs are removed before a winter storm hits and does major damage to your home or family. We follow ANSI A300 Pruning Standards in order for your trees to receive the utmost care and remain healthy.
