The weather is getting nicer and all of us are wanting to spend more and more time outside. The days are longer, the nights are warmer, and you should get to enjoy every minute. A complete outdoor living space can provide the perfect haven to relax, gather with friends and family, and enjoy the seasons. Make sure that your outdoor space is ready for anything with these tips and suggestions for improvement:


Having a hot tub is one of life’s simple luxuries. It’s a place to unwind after a long day of work or to take in the stars on a summer evening. Before installing a hot tub, you need to consider the best place to put it. Consider access to the house, privacy, and how much sun or shade you want the tub to get.

A standard round hot tub usually takes up 30 square feet while a standard rectangular hot tub takes up 48 square feet. Plan for additional room around the tub for sitting and walking. You also need to keep in mind that a full hot tub weighs close to 2 tons and will require its own foundation.

Light Up The Space

Properly designed lighting for the pool and nearby areas can add class and sophistication to your outdoor space. When selecting and arranging lights, keep these factors in mind:

·         Focal points

·         Light quality

·         Balance and symmetry

·         Comfort

Use the lighting to highlight certain points in your landscape such as plant life, pool decks, and patios to create real impact. We recommend In-Lite fixtures. They provide smart lights that are high quality, simple to install, and ideal for any yard. Contact us and we can help you find the perfect lighting to compliment your outdoor space.

Add An Activity Area

Reserving one part of your backyard for an activity area is the perfect finishing touch for your outdoor escape. Consider setting up a volleyball net, horseshoe toss, lawn bowling, or outdoor darts. If you are limited on space, try a little corner nook where people can gather to play board games or cards.

Creating an inviting backyard space can be made to suit any style, taste, or budget. Turn it into a fun project for the entire family to get involved with and look forward to enjoying the well-earned results.


A good outdoor living space will add value to your home and encourage people to spend time outside regardless of the season. Contact us today and let us help you turn your backyard into a real outdoor retreat.
