This time of year, the warm weather always brings about a new lifestyle across the east coast. Families begin to spend more time in outdoor living spaces, become more active, schedules become busier and spring cleaning inspires changes both inside and outside their homes. As Memorial Day approaches, homeowners are beginning to open their swimming pools in anticipation for the summer months.
Over the course of the last few years, the trend of building inground swimming pools and creating outdoor living spaces has skyrocketed. An increasing number of homeowners are developing unique and impressive outdoor rooms to complement their lifestyles.
As experienced designers and builders of outdoor living spaces, we always tell our clients to consider your daily routine and your family’s lifestyle to decide what would work best for you. Creating the ideal outdoor living space is essentially designing an extension onto your home. The new area can be turned into an outdoor living room with a fireplace, kitchen with bar space, dining area, entertainment area, pool or spa area, or an enclosed garden space. It depends on each homeowner’s preference and needs to expand upon their home.
Visualize the best way to utilize your outdoor space. Do you see yourself entertaining friends and family, or looking for a tranquil, intimate space screened in from neighbors? It is also important to consider which seasons this space would best be utilized. Would it be year-round and need a fire feature for the colder months? A shaded area where you would need a pergola or overhead screening? Or a poolside patio to soak up the sunshine in the summer? Every client’s needs and personal style preferences are different, but with the right team of architects and designers, anything can be customized to meet every unique vision and budget.
At Scenic Landscaping, we work with our sister companies Tapestry Landscape Architecture and Tranquility Pools to provide a seamless, start to finish experience for our clients. We know starting to develop a brand-new space is overwhelming, and we are there throughout the entire process. We work closely with each client to understand their needs, visions, and we are there to assist from initial design, through build, as well as ongoing maintenance. Every job is completely customized and we take pride in lending our expertise every step of the way. Make this the year you invest in your property, enhance your lifestyle, and bring that new dream space to life.
