Big or small, inexpensive or extravagant; creating your outdoor space is an investment in your home and your peace of mind. The whole point of creating an outdoor space is to more easily spend time outside in the fresh air. There have been numerous studies depicting the health benefits of being outside. Not only are you getting healthy outdoors, but having a nice outdoor living area helps bring your friends and family together to socialize.
Your space does not need to be complicated but ideally the elements of fire, water, and earth should be included. Fire creates warmth and draws people together. It also extends your outdoor time due to weather. Water is obviously fire’s opposite. It cools and calms. The two together create tranquility and a sense of serenity. The Earth element brings in life, providing color and texture from plant material and ground treatments like mulch or stone.
What do people do when they get together? They eat, of course. I don’t know what it is, but somehow when I eat outside the food tastes better. Eating and drinking under the stars is beyond compare. One of our most requested outdoor elements is an outdoor kitchen, but a charcoal grill gets the job done too. Just add some comfortable seating and your space is complete.
