After a long and cold winter, most of us want to spend as much time as possible outdoors. Sitting in a lawn chair in the sun is a great way to get some sun and relax, but you can really turn your backyard into a luxury oasis with a bit of time and some well placed investments. Are you ready to step things up a notch when it comes to your outdoor living space in Fort Collins? Great! We have some tips for you!
Do you have a porch? You can turn any porch into a fabulous getaway by adding some white wicker furniture, colorful pillows, and even a few curtains to the space. If you think of your porch as an extension of your home and decorate accordingly, you can really turn that area into something unique and special that you will love spending time in all summer long (don’t forget the lemonade!).
Create an outdoor dining space that looks like it came out of the pages of a magazine. You can use stacked stones to create a plateau surface, or hire a company like Mill Brothers to pour a concrete slab to use as a dining room surface. All you need once that’s done is a great and large outdoor table and some chairs – the beauty of an outdoor dining room is that you don’t need to buy matching chairs! Just buy chairs that look amazing.
A hidden garden or dining space. Using shrubs and other large greenery, you can create a small and secrete hideaway anywhere in your backyard. Kids will love this secret space, and it’s also a great romantic place for you to meet with your loved one and sip some cocktails on a breezy summer night.
Plant some trees. It’s true that trees take time to grow, but planting some trees now will benefit your backyard in the future. If you have cut down a lot of trees or just want some more privacy, choose tall and lush trees that will fill in your yard easily (and hide your yard from the neighbors). If you aren’t sure what kinds of trees to plant, ask us! We would be more than happy to help you pick out some trees and to dig holes and plant those trees for you.
Fix old rock walls or add new ones. If you live in an area where there are rock walls, you can fix these up simply by repairing crumbling stones. Rock wall repair might be a lot of work, but it’s nothing that our team can’t handle. Plus, there’s a lot of benefit to a rock wall – privacy, some quaintness added to your yard, and a rustic look that goes hand in hand with almost any outdoor decor.
What about an amazing outdoor grill space? You might have a barbeque now, but a massive outdoor grill will really heat things up! You can buy a grill that includes burners, a grill, and even a rotisserie station. Plus, we can create a brick patio or other area that shows off your outdoor kitchen and makes that new grill pop.
If you have a pool area, do you have bricks or stones that surround your pool? If not, this might be something for you to seriously consider. This way, your pool will stand out with the help of the stones and bricks, and you will get that completed backyard look.
