Now is a great time to get started on those fall and winter landscape construction projects. The Colorado winters can be harsh, but when there is that nice chill in the air and the snow fall has not come just yet, it could be the perfect night for a family huddle around the fire pit or fireplace. Or perhaps you and a few friends want to enjoy a beautiful night in the hot tub? When the weather is favorable, enjoying your landscape in the winter can be a great luxury.
Enjoy your pool during the late spring and summer, but once the chill of fall hits, a fireside chat is a great cool weather pastime.
Also, if you want to improve your patio with pavers or another material, think about what type of interesting design patterns you may find attractive. Besides the luxury of fire features in the landscape, you have to remember the importance of aesthetics too.
Contact a designer at Lifescape if you need help getting your Denver area backyard ready for the chill of fall and the cold of winter.
When it comes to your outdoor environment, you need to be able to feel relaxed. If your back or front yard does not consist of at least one meditation or serene spot, you could be missing out on having valuable peace of mind outside. Think of it like this, your home is your sanctuary.
It is just as important to have a relaxing space on the outside of your home as it is on the inside. Especially now that Spring is here and Summer is not too far off.
Your quality of life outside your home can be greatly enhanced by special spots within your landscape that you can go to for relaxation, meditation or just a moment to yourself to enjoy nature.
Do you have a serene spot in your landscape where you can listen to the sound of trickling water, feel the gentle breeze or watch the sunset and sunrise? Contact a designer at Lifescape if you are interested in finding out how you can have the perfect spot in your Denver or Boulder area landscape.
People sometimes fail to remember that they can update their backyard or patio with the latest trends and fashion in outdoor design. It’s time to get rid of that old fashioned look and step into 21st century outdoor design.
Here are 3 of the latest trends in Backyard Design:
1. Bring the inside…out.
Have you thought about having a traditional living room outside? Well, there are alot of new outdoor fabrics now that are made with acrylic fibers, fade-resistant and waterproof materials. You can have a living space outside that is just as comfortable and cozy as the inside.
2. Plant double duty gardens.
Blend both edibles and ornamentals in your garden to give it a bountiful and luscious look.
3. Go Green with Sustainable design.
Invest in a low water garden - find drought tolerant plants that add color and personality to your backyard.
