Tuning Up For Summer Entertaining!
It’s time to think about your plans for outdoor summer entertaining. Firing up the grill, wiping down the patio furniture and having plenty of fuel for the fire pit are all part of getting ready for long, enjoyable evenings with family, neighbors and friends. Here are a few basic ideas to consider.
Is your outdoor living and entertaining space big enough to comfortably fit everything you like to do? Sitting, eating, cooking and roasting marshmallows all need enough space. Thinking through all the things you enjoy doing on your patio or deck can help you begin to imagine how it could be improved or possibly expanded.
Great for both the front and back yard, landscape lighting is useful for more than just aesthetics. Whether you choose lampposts or low-voltage LED lighting, landscape lighting ensures better safety and allows you to continue your fun long into the night. It is especially important to consider good lighting on paths from the front to the back yard, so guests can clearly see where they’re stepping.
Nothing says “welcome” and “enjoy” more than an outdoor kitchen! From simple to elaborate, there are options to meet every taste and budget.
Outdoor Fireplaces and Fire Pits
If a full outdoor kitchen is too much, maybe an outdoor fireplace will fit your tastes. Outdoor fireplaces and smaller outdoor fire pits are the perfect party features for socializing long after the sun goes down.
