“Warmer weather is coming. Now is the time to start getting the backyard ready for fun,” said John McCormick of Baker Pool & Spa. There are several ways people can make their yards an
extension of their living area and add both value and pleasure to their homes.
Here are three ways to prepare the backyard for springtime.
Add Plenty of Seating
To really bring people outside and add living space to the home, make sure there is plenty of comfortable seating for everybody. Large, heavily padded couches and chairs along with coffee tables make a patio or porch a great place to relax and enjoy nature and good conversation.
If there isn’t a patio or other smooth surface to place furniture on, create an oasis on a grassy surface with patio stones or paving slabs. Don’t forget to add those special little touches of style to make the outdoor area personal, such as planters, fountains, or garden areas.
Extend Backyard Use with Lighting
Lighting does more than create a mood when it is used outdoors. The proper lighting can easily extend the usefulness of a patio, porch, or other backyard areas so they can be enjoyed even when the sun goes down. Putting lights in the seating areas that brighten the surroundings gives family and guests a comfortable place to talk, read, or relax outside.
Create the Perfect Gathering Spot with a Hot Tub
One way to ensure that the backyard area is ready for outdoor fun is to add a hot tub to the patio, porch, or backyard. A hot tub creates an instant gathering spot that friends and family will gravitate toward. The soothing water of a hot tub provides a comforting place to relax and enjoy the company of loved ones.
A great benefit of a hot tub is the allure for younger family members. The fun and enjoyable atmosphere of the hot tub bring family members of all ages together and present the perfect opportunity to talk and address problems or struggles of the day in a safe and peaceful environment.
