Designing a Livable, Low Maintenance Outdoor Space

Easy DIY Outdoor Space Upgrades

We are getting back to normal and entertaining our friends at home.

It is summer and we want to enjoy our outdoor space. Here are a few things you can do to your outdoor space.

When it comes to summertime entertaining, your outdoor space is at the centre of the action. But if landscaping doesn’t come naturally to you, don’t worry. You don’t need elaborate greenery to create your own little backyard oasis. In fact, you don’t need a backyard at all!

Ditch the Grass

Lawn care can be a bit of a paradox. The larger the lot, the more effort involved—the smaller the lot, the more questionable the effort becomes. This is why an increasing number of homeowners are turning to hardscaping by covering their outdoor space in decorative stone or eye-catching brick patchworks. Less work, more space for entertaining.

Make Use of Potted Plants

Incorporating pots into your landscaping is not only low maintenance, it’s highly versatile. Whether you are decorating a large backyard deck or a small condo balcony, potted plants add effortless colour to any space. Plus, if you’re not a seasoned gardener, you can opt for low maintenance plants and add colour and personality with your pot choices.

Make it Comfortable

What’s the secret to creating a liveable outdoor space? Make it just as comfy and stylish as your indoor living room. Don’t limit yourself with traditional plastic outdoor furniture; add a personal touch with cozy throw pillows and outdoor blankets for cooler evenings. Incorporate a focal point, like a fire pit, and hang some string lights to create ambiance.


As always, if you are looking for more please do just ask.
