Turning your undeveloped yard into outdoor living areas can get your family out of the house and into the fresh air. It will also increase your home’s resale value and entertaining space. The good news is Nashville is the perfect spot for enjoying outdoor living spaces nearly year-round!
By far, patios are the most traditional outdoor living area. These ground level seating areas are the perfect space to entertain friends, relax with a good book, or watch the kids play in the yard. Patios are most often connected to the home and can function as an extension of the living room or dining area. However, adding an additional patio across the yard can provide a sanctuary for quiet conversation and relaxation.
Garden walls are as sophisticated as they are beautiful. They add curb appeal to any home or business! Garden walls can be done with simplicity in mind, or intricately designed with more complex elements in mind. Before you begin the process of building a garden wall, it is important to map out your ideas and plan for what kind of stone and plants you would like to include. There are different types of garden walls, some can be done vertically for a modern look. Others can be atop retaining walls for a more traditional look. Whichever you decide to do, walls such as these provide a great design element to any outdoor space!
If you enjoy grilling outside or hosting cookouts, the experience only gets better with an outdoor kitchen. Though many outdoor kitchens are simple, when it comes to taking your culinary talents outdoors the sky is the limit. Upscale versions offer all the amenities of indoor kitchens – including scaled-down appliances, sinks, and even pizza ovens!
Fireplaces and fire pits make excellent focal points for the backyard. They offer unlimited opportunities for long evenings around the warm blaze enjoying company, conversation, and maybe even roasted marshmallows. As an added benefit, they expand the usability of your outdoor space by providing a heat source in cool winter months. Though fire pits can be featured on the main patio, it’s a good idea to locate them in their own area of the yard, away from the primary seating area. This creates an additional conversation and entertaining area. It also keeps smoke away from people who prefer to distance themselves from the fire.
