Autumn is in full swing, and now is the perfect time to transform your outdoor space into a haven where you can relax, unwind, and enjoy the crisp, cool air.

Our team is here to help you create a welcoming atmosphere that you’ll love spending time in.

Assess Your Outdoor Space 

Before you start planning your outdoor retreat, take a good look at your space. Do you have a deck or patio? Is there a garden, or is it mostly lawn? What kind of trees or plants do you have? What kind of creative stonework do you have going on? Understanding what you’re working with will help you plan your outdoor space more efficiently. It would be best if you also considered how much sun and shade your area gets throughout the day. This will help you choose plants and furniture that will thrive in your outdoor space.

Choose Comfortable Furniture

When it comes to outdoor furniture, select pieces that are both comfortable and functional. Invest in a sturdy table and chairs that can withstand the weather, and add some cozy cushions or pillows for extra comfort. A hammock or swing chair is also a great way to add a relaxing touch to your outdoor oasis. Don’t forget to include some outdoor lighting, like string lights or lanterns, to design a warm and inviting atmosphere in the evenings.

Add Plants and Flowers

Plants and flowers are an essential part of any outdoor living area. They not only add color and beauty, but they also help create a relaxing and serene atmosphere. If you have a green thumb, consider planting a garden and adding plants and flowers that will thrive in your space. If you don’t have the time or energy to tend to your greenery, consider adding potted plants and hanging baskets around your outdoor area. Some great plants to consider are lavender, jasmine, and geraniums.

Incorporate Water Features

The sound of water has a relaxing and calming effect that can instantly make any outdoor space feel like a serene oasis. Adding a water feature, like a fountain or small pond, can help drown out any street noise and create a peaceful environment. You can also add a birdbath or bird feeder to attract wildlife to your outdoor space.

Add Personal Touches

Don’t be afraid to add personal touches to your outdoor retreat. Hang some artwork on your patio walls, or add a rustic sign with your family name. Incorporate items that have special meaning to you, like a vintage table that was passed down from your grandparents or a set of wind chimes that you picked up on vacation. These personal touches will make your outdoor space feel like a true reflection of your unique style and personality.
