How to Create an Outdoor Oasis

Owning a home with a yard offers a great deal of opportunities to create an outdoor space that you can immensely enjoy.

Owning a home with a yard offers a great deal of opportunities to create an outdoor space that you can immensely enjoy.  Whether you have a very small yard or a large yard, there are ways to transform any space from a basic plot of land into an outdoor oasis, a paradise right in your own backyard.  In addition to there being ways to create an oasis in any size space, there are also ways to create an oasis on any budget.

The first step in creating your own personal oasis in your backyard is to bring the comforts of inside to the outside.  This can be done in a variety of ways.  Perhaps you love to entertain and when doing so you love to cook and prepare food for your guests.  An outdoor entertaining oasis wouldn’t be complete without a place to prepare, cook and serve food. An outdoor kitchen can be as simple as a grill and countertop, or as luxurious as a grill, plenty of counter space for food and serving, a refrigerator, an oven, a pizza oven, a dishwasher, a sink and more.  As you prepare your food you can mingle with guests and never have to miss out on a moment of the party.  In addition to preparing and serving food, you will want a comfortable place for you, or your guests to relax.  A covered patio area helps protect you from the hot sun and creates an ideal environment in which to sit down, relax, eat, or talk.  Furnish your patio with the same luxuries that you would inside – comfortable seating, a place to put food down or a table at which to eat, or even a fire pit around which you and your guests can gather.

Another way to create an outdoor oasis is to balance the softscape (plants, trees, grass, etc.) with the hardscape (pathways, fire pits, planters, pergolas, etc.).  It is exactly this balance that helps a landscape feel like you are walking around in a luxurious resort rather than stumbling through a haphazard landscape.  One such hardscape option that is also aesthetically pleasing is a water feature.  Whether it is a fountain or other water feature, it will help reduce ambient noise and create a Zen oasis in which you can escape everyday stresses.  If you are ready to invest in your home and create your backyard paradise, speak to a qualified handyman or contractor who can help you bring your vision to life.
