As summer comes to an end and we move into fall, the ways we use our yard change. Families transition from searching for ways to get out of the heat to wanting cozy spaces to stay warm and socialize outside with food, drink, music and company. There are several enhancements we can professionally add to your yard to extend outdoor entertaining well into the fall:
Stone Fire Pits
Fire pits are a wonderful way to incorporate warmth and ambiance into a cozy gathering place. They can be constructed into a stone wall or can be built as the focal point of a patio. Adding a fire pit to your yard not only boosts aesthetic appeal with a unique stonework design, but also offers the practical value of hours of additional time spent outside in chilly weather. Dreamscape Designers can work with you to customize the best fire pit style for your family.
Fall and football go hand-in-hand, but whether you are a fan or simply enjoy playing backyard games like cornhole, horseshoes or bocce, you can tailgate without ever leaving home! Make your house the favorite entertainment spot with a patio or bar for socializing and grassy yard space for playing games. You can even incorporate your favorite sports teams into your landscaping with plant colors and decorations!
Food and Drink
Traditional, boring backyard grills and picnic tables have evolved into truly innovative ways to entertain guests when it comes to food and drink. Kegerators, outdoor fire stoves, outdoor storage and countertops, and grills built into stone bars draw inspiration from inside your home. Incorporating interior kitchen ideas in your outdoor setting is a great way to add versatility and fun to your outdoor living areas.
Gazebos, Pavilions & Pergolas
Outdoor structures mimic the effect of indoor rooms, with elements similar to walls and ceilings. They bring the coziness of a private space to an open-air environment. An added bonus is that certain designs offer shelter for entertaining in all types of weather. There are many lighting and seating options available to make the most of this covered space.
