Transforming Your Yard Into an Outdoor Entertaining Space

With summertime approaching, many of us turn out thoughts to the outdoors. When the weather warms up, it’s time to get outside and spruce up the yard. Improving your curb appeal is important, and definitely adds something to your entire property. But what about entertaining? How can you transform your yard into an outdoor entertaining space, letting you do more of your living outside in the sunshine?

Transforming Your Yard to Entertain

There are a lot of things you can do to make your outdoor space more conducive to summertime entertaining. Aside from maintenance issues like weeding and cutting the lawn, here are some ideas that can help you make the most of your yard before it’s time to party.

Liven up your deck
It’s always a good idea to create separate functional areas of your deck for eating, lounging, or playing. A pergola or other cover can help relieve the summer heat.

Create a patio
Whether it’s concrete, flagstone, or pavers, a patio is the perfect place to host your backyard barbecue. It’ll be even more stunning if you surround it with beautiful but low-maintenance landscaping.

Add a spa
Nothing says “relax” like a spa or hot tub. But you can’t just place it anywhere. Get a professional to help you create the ideal structure to support it, cover it, and make it an oasis worth showing off.

Get ready to cook
An outdoor kitchen can take your barbecue to a whole new level; not to mention keeping the heat from cooking out of your house!

Add privacy
A fence or other privacy structure around your deck or patio (especially if you have a hot tub) can help you relax in your own space without prying eyes.

Say it with stone
A stunning masonry piece in your yard, such as a fire pit, seating area, or water feature, can turn an ordinary space into something really special. Your guests will love it for the party, but you’ll get to enjoy it every day.

Dive right in
We saved the best for last! There’s nothing like a crystal-clear pool with custom surroundings to transform your yard into a destination. And here in St. George, your pool can be used for many months out of the year, making it a worthwhile investment.

This summer, don’t be afraid to transform your yard into the outdoor living and entertaining space you’ve always wanted. You’ll enjoy your own paradise — and the virtual increase in square footage it brings — for as long as you own your home.
