With the sultry heat of summer getting ready to give place to the welcome cool of autumn, outdoor living rooms are highly desirable areas to saturate you in the constantly changing beauty of nature. Having such a wonderful natural outdoor living retreat within easy access means you can easily enjoy al fresco dining, visit with family and friends or even revel in the companionable silence of a good book.
Why not mull over some inspiring ideas to help you create a stunning and practical outdoor living area for your Main Line landscape design? Remember, any outdoor living space add-ons should be appropriately scaled for your home. “Don’t make your new space so large that it takes over your yard. On the other hand, a large yard with a tiny patio won’t feel right either. Keep your plans proportional,” says financial adviser Dave Ramsey.
Gazebo, shade trellis or pergola – This is like having a free-standing extension of your home, especially if enclosed by outdoor curtains offering a wind buffer. It provides all the ambiance of the outdoors with the added advantages of sun protection and privacy.
Archway – By framing the walk into your outdoor living space with an arch or trellis, you create an enchanting illusion of stepping into a distinctly separate area via a “door.” Allowing climbing plants to clamber this focal point only enhances the charm of your Main Line landscape design.
Fencing – To more strongly define the “room” feeling of your outdoor space, sundry fencing options may serve the function. Lattice, bamboo, picket fencing, and even a living fence of shrubbery all may provide the enclosure material needed to create an exquisite and intimate nature setting for your long-time family home; or a new house with a wide open yard in need of a landscape plan.
Accessories – By decorating your outdoor living space with plush pillows, throws or rugs (that are rated for outdoor use), your nature room will be even more inviting and comfortable for everyone who visits it!
Relish the wonders of nature this autumn; revel in the blue skies, the brisk air, and the changing foliage — and enjoy it all from a brilliantly planned and tastefully decorated outdoor living space in your Main Line landscape design. These easy outdoor living space add-ons may offer that unique final touch you’ve been looking for, for your landscaped garden.
