‘Get outside and play!’
We heard those words from our parents as children, now those words resonate within our selves as adults. Though they mean something more to us now. Our time outdoors is more valuable than ever before!
Seasons are changing with the threat of global warming. Our winters are lasting longer and our summers are hotter though shorter.
The need to fully understand how we entertain or “play,” as a family and entertainers in the great outdoors, will establish personal wants independent of our neighbors’.
How will you and your family entertain in the great outdoors this year? How does that look, feel and sound to you?
Cleverly, creatively and efficiently designed with your budget in mind, your Professional Landscape Designer can provide you the leverage you need when considering options for a new outdoor entertaining environment.
Shade, as I have always said, is a commodity and a legacy. The best time to plant a tree was 25 years ago.
What does your perfect outdoor entertainment environment include? Is it a cool, peaceful sanctuary, easing the mind though the calming sounds of a meandering babbling stone brook and cascading waterfall over a Koi Pond…?
Or a party-spot with a superior outdoor sound-system and night-lightscaping? Will you want a grilling station or fire-pit? Outdoor kitchen, or fireplace?
Perhaps this is the year to consider a swimming pool and cabana boasting an infrared sauna or steam-room. Ready for that resort feel?
Create a three-seasons room for an outdoor pool table, ping-pong or darts. The brilliant Italian Bocce court, quoits or horseshoe games gets us going!
