In the last couple years we have seen a rise in clients wanting to expand their outdoor living space and make the most of their time at home. But the truth is, outdoor living spaces are more than just a trend. These spaces provide opportunities for families to spend quality time together and create lasting memories. 

In this article, we will explore how these hardscape spaces can be designed and incorporated into your backyard to create the ultimate landscape oasis for your family.

  1. Pools offer a place for family members to cool off and play during hot summer months. Pools are a great backdrop for hosting parties and events, which can create opportunities for families to bond and make lasting memories. Additionally, having a pool in your backyard can also be a great way to create a sense of community, inviting friends and family over for pool parties and barbecues. Speaking of barbecues…
  2. Outdoor kitchens make it easy to entertain guests, which can be especially beneficial for families who enjoy hosting gatherings. An outdoor kitchen can accommodate multiple cooks, making it easy to prepare large meals for a crowd. It also allows for more flexibility in terms of meal planning and can make it easier to cook and serve a variety of foods. Having an outdoor kitchen also enables families to spend more time outside, which can have a positive impact on overall health and well-being.
  3. Firepits provide opportunities for families to spend quality time together by creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere for socializing and relaxation. Sitting around a fire pit allows family members to engage in conversation, share stories and experiences, and bond over shared activities such as roasting marshmallows or making s'mores. Additionally, the fire itself can be mesmerizing and promote a sense of calm, making it a perfect spot for unwinding after a long day.
  4. Hot tubs create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere that can be enjoyed by all members of the family, regardless of age. They can provide a way to unwind and de-stress after a long day or week by just soaking and chatting, playing games, or even watching a movie. Hot tubs can also provide health benefits, such as improving circulation, reducing muscle and joint pain, and promoting better sleep. This can be especially beneficial for families with members who have physical limitations or conditions that may benefit from hydrotherapy.

On top of all that, extending your outdoor living space can also help to increase the value of the home and make it more appealing for potential buyers. Overall, increasing your outdoor living space can provide a valuable and enjoyable addition to your home, and can help to strengthen the bonds between family members.
