These Atlanta outdoor living space tips are just in time. Warm weather is heading our way, and for Atlantan’s, this means outdoor entertaining. It’s likely your backyard has been unattended during the winter months, so you’ll want to revive it before the barbeque season arrives.
Call an Atlanta contractor to discuss bigger projects, such as installing a built – in grill and eating area. Or perhaps this is the spring you’ve been waiting for to add a deck or screened in porch to your house.
Think about your landscape this season. Atlanta homes sit in the perfect climate for fostering plant growth. Begin thinking about what cold weather annuals to remove and what colorful warm weather ones to put in. Consider pruning back the dead on trees and shrubs to promote healthy spring growth.
Backyard Swimming Pool
Put in a pool. Yes, this is a big decision and shouldn’t be made lightly. But pools, especially in the humid South, can be wonderful additions to backyards.
There are several smaller projects that can bring life to your backyard. Consider having an arbor, trellis or pergola put in, as these features add aesthetic interest and focal points to a yard. Surround raised beds with retaining walls, or update your fence. Put down pavers to create walkways or patios, and consider updated outdoor lighting.
Atlanta home buyers are looking for outdoor living spaces. Having a covered area, under which people can gather in inclement weather, is a plus. Also, incorporating plenty of space for people to sit and collect – such as built – in benches – is appealing.
Bold backyard accents – like free – standing fire pits, ponds and other water features – can add interest to a backyard. Also, making the flow from the home’s interior to its exterior living space free and open is important. Consider installing large windows, French doors or other elements that encourage the flow from inside to out.
As you can see, there are endless things you can do to improve the look, feel and functionality of your backyard. Go bold, and contact Glazer Design and Construction at 404.683.9848 or email Randy@GlazerConstruction.com or complete our Fast Form below.
