Exceeding Expectations through Extraordinary Landscapes

5 Ideas for Your Outdoor Living Room Wish List

The temperatures are increasing, and so is your time outdoors. Are you gazing out your window imagining all the backyard improvements you could make? Here at Absolute Landscape and Turf Services, we know that limiting your wish list can be hard. We’ve narrowed it down to five outdoor living room must-haves that will definitely turn your space into an entertaining hotspot this Spring.

Outdoor fireplace or fire pit

Whether it is a fire pit, chimney or other large fire feature, flames are an outdoor living room must-have. Not only can the kids roast marshmallows, but the adults can lounge close by when the air turns chilly. For this project, you can always start small and then later add a seating area or a sandbox for extra enjoyment.

Pergola for shade

If your backyard seating is in need of some shelter from the summer heat, a pergola is the perfect way to create an inviting outdoor living room. Most models come pre-assembled or can be put together in an afternoon. Once you have established a desired location, install and enjoy. Welcome to shade and relaxation.

Outdoor kitchen

The ultimate perk for the cooking enthusiast is an outdoor kitchen. Whether you’re an aspiring BBQ competitor or are just looking for a new gas grill, make sure you set your budget early. It’s easy to become distracted (and enticed) by all kinds of additional items for your outdoor culinary hotspot, so be prepared. Have an idea of the square footage that’s available and the equipment you can’t live without, and then set your budget. This will guarantee everyone is happy with the finished product and nobody gets burned.

Television area

What’s better than enjoying the outdoors? Enjoying the outdoors while keeping an eye on the O’s game! Adding a television will not only give people another place to gather, but also makes for a great entertainment space, one that leaves your indoors as clean as a whistle.

Patio furniture

No one wants to spend time in the yard if there is not a comfortable place to sit. Whether it’s a whole new patio set or simply updated chair cushions, give your outdoor living room a comfort boost this season. For fun and unconventional seating, consider adding oversized pillows to your trampoline or patio, or even hang a large rope swing from a tree.
