Summer is in full swing, and that means spending more time outside than ever before. So if you’re thinking about landscape construction in your yard, the time is now, or else you won’t be able to enjoy it until it gets warm outside again!
Hands down, one of the best things about having a backyard is having a patio. Your patio is where it all happens — where you grill, relax, and spend time with friends and family. While your specific patio design can differ, according to the 2016 Residential Landscape Architecture Trends Survey, the top three most popular outdoor elements for a patio included a fireplace, outdoor lighting, and wireless internet. Besides these elements, there is so much you can do to spruce up your patio and really make it shine. Follow these tips and you’ll have the best patio on the block!
Add an outdoor kitchen
Bring your kitchen outside by creating an outdoor cooking area. You can have an outdoor oven and grill installed and cook everything and anything. Not only can you keep the heat out of the house but create a space for entertaining where everyone can gather and feel relaxed.
Install a fountain
Fountains are great focal points, and they don’t need to be huge to pack a punch. A simple fountain crafted from rocks of varying sizes can be quite soothing to listen to when relaxing and reading a book.
Add fun seating
Simple folding chairs just won’t do. Feel free to add tables and chaise lounges to give more of a relaxing vibe.
Go natural with the decorations
At a risk of looking too gaudy with your decorations, use natural inspiration when working on your patio design. The best decorations you can have are fresh plants — so go crazy and take advantage of this time of year!
