Why it’s All About Outdoor Living Spaces

Now more than ever, homeowners are upgrading their yards, creating extensive and fully immersive outdoor living spaces. Not only are these spaces comfortable, convenient outdoor oases, but they can also enhance a property’s value from day one, especially as demand for these coveted personal venues increases.

If you’re still kicking back in your backyard, it could be time for an upgrade. With a variety of price points and DIY versus pro options, there’s no reason not to improve your space. Whether you tackle a few small upgrades or opt to overhaul your entire yard with one or more of the enhancements below, there are endless options for kicking things up a notch—and for truly indulging in the unique and fully customized space you’ve created.

How can you enjoy your backyard more?

Outdoor Living Spaces

The first step? Creating a true living space. Whether it’s a simple patio or adding some comfortable outdoor furniture, the living space should be the center of any outdoor upgrade. Be sure you have ample seating and, ideally, an all-weather “base”—cement, pavers or other “flooring” that ensures you can use your outdoor living space even after it rains. From there, focus on how you plan to use the space—i.e. big block parties, family BBQs, nightly dinners or working and lounging in the back. This, often, will dictate how you structure the core space.

Outdoor Kitchens

Whether it’s a grill or a full-on outdoor kitchen, consider what the uses from above mean from a food perspective. Most homeowners opt for, minimally, a grill but increasingly outdoor kitchens are becoming common—think countertops and bar seating, built-in grills, sinks, wine fridges and even dishwashers. There are plenty of options on both ends of the spectrum depending on your space, your budgets and your wants and needs.

Outdoor Fireplaces And Firepits

Many homeowners envision themselves hanging in their outdoor living spaces, relaxing by the fire—which is why fire is becoming such a desirable add-on. Outdoor fireplaces and firepits and increasingly popular, with price points ranging from under $100 to five-figures and up. Depending on your usage, our expert team can help determine the right fire features for your outdoor living space, ensuring you have the added heat and WOW factor night after night.

Outdoor Water Features

Water features are also increasingly popular, with more diverse features and options than ever. More and more homeowners are adding small garden ponds, creating a truly serene space—and a bit of outdoor glamour. With the option to add waterfalls, live fish and water plants, these small “ponds” can be an incredible and, even, jaw-dropping addition. Other options? Depending on your space and your goals, you may opt to layer in a calming streambed that surrounds the space, or a more decorative bubbling vase, fountain or raised basin. These structures can all range from extensive to small-scale, helping you create your dream space in any space.


For many homeowners, the appeal of an outdoor living space is the ability to get out even when the weather doesn’t agree. To that end, many outdoor living spaces aren’t complete without an all-season covering. With a variety of permanent and retractable options, pergolas are a good go-to for any outdoor space, delivering instant shade and protection from the elements. And, like other add-ons, pergolas come in a variety of shapes, fabrications and price points ensuring you can get the coverage you need without sacrificing anything.
