You should treat your outdoor living space just as you would the inside of your house; after all, it’s just as important and at the end of the day, it’s still a part of your home. When you have company over, you want to make sure that they feel welcome, right? Well, even if the inside of your house is inviting, you want to make sure that guests can feel comfortable in your outdoor living space as well, just in case you happen to host an event or visit on your porch or patio.
While transforming your outdoor living space may seem like a lot of work and leave you feeling uninspired, the talented Utah landscapers here at Mellco have some pointers to help you out. Here are five simple ways to transform your outdoor living space.
Enhance Your Entrances
The entries in your home are the first thing that a guest sees, so if they don’t look good, your home may come across as uninviting. There are a few simple things that you can do without the help of our Utah landscapers to get started on your entry way enhancements. You can add a nice entry mat and some potted plants to your entrance to make guests feel more welcome, plus, door mats always look good in front of your main door.
Other simple things like door signs and porch accessories such as decorations and furniture can help your entry way bring more people in.
Add Accessories to Your Walls
Walls are often one of the most overlooked parts of a home when it comes to decorations, however they allow you the most space to work with. Things such as vines give your walls texture and a unique look to your home. Vines can be a little trickier to set up, so consider hiring Utah landscapers to give you a hand if you’re planning on adding it to your home.
Sharpen Your Edges
Sharp edges and defined lines can add an elegant look to your outdoor living space. You can achieve this look by creating stone flower beds, fire pits and rock retaining walls. Of course, you’ll need the help of our talented Utah landscapers if you’re wanting things to look crisp.
Soften Your Hardscapes
Everything should be done in moderation, even concrete and stone landscape designs; too much stone or concrete will come across as cold and uninviting, so it’s best to add some plants or grass to soften it up. Once our Utah landscapers have laid out any stone or concrete additions you may have asked for, they can also help you add some life to your outdoor living space.
Repeat Plants for Balance and Unity
This step goes hand-in-hand with the previous one, and it also includes the addition of plants and flowers. This will help add a pleasant aesthetic as well as a cohesive look to your outdoor living space. You can probably complete this step on your own, but if you feel like you need the help of professionals, you should give us a call.
