Your outdoor space is likely where you want to spend time with friends and family in the summer, and if you love to entertain or have barbecues you need an excellent outdoor area. Use these tips from us here at Hermes Landscaping to help you create an ideal outdoor gathering space perfect for year-round entertaining when weather permits.
- Have enough seating! When it comes to creating front yard spaces, most people don’t include enough seating. Make it weather resistant, but use throw pillows and other comfortable items like blankets to allow people to rest comfortably in your outdoor space.
- Consider establishing a sense of discovery. Think paths and pavers, you can easily transform your walkways with gentle curves in the path design to encourage exploration through your landscaped area.
- Use hedges and native plants that don’t require more water than your area will provide for a lush landscape. Large trees and hedges can also add to the privacy of your outdoor space, even in the front yard. You can also consider using containers that are planted with veins that will grow up a trellis to enhance the privacy of your yard even more.
