3 Reasons that Winter Is the Ideal Time to Plan Your Outdoor Living Space

Here at Rose Landscape Services, we can install everything you need to revamp your outdoor living space, including kitchens, patios, walkways, softscape, and lighting. We serve both residential and commercial properties in Cascade, Ada, Grand Rapids, and the nearby communities.

As winter is in full swing, your outdoor living space may be the last thing on your mind. However, as you are bundling up by the fire, you should also be planning your new outdoor living space.

If planning your outdoor living space in the wintertime doesn't seem beneficial, here are three reasons why it's actually the best time to start doing so.

1. Planning your outdoor living space takes time.

Even if you just want to focus on a small section of your outdoor living space, you should still allow for ample time to plan your design. This way, our team can help you work out all of the details.

You also need time to reflect on what did and didn't work well in the prior year. Was your outdoor space too small to properly host your gatherings? Could you benefit from an outdoor kitchen? Did certain plants grow poorly? Take some time in the winter to think about these questions and consider other factors that may affect your new outdoor living space design and installation.

Ways to Add on to Your Outdoor Living Space

Ways to Add on to Your Outdoor Living Space

With an increasing trend in people wanting to spend more time outdoors and less time cooped up inside, many homeowners are investing in elements that add on to their outdoor living space. There are many ways you can add on to your outdoor living space and increase the amount of time you and your guests spend outdoors.

From adding custom focal points to extending your outdoor enjoyment with outdoor lighting, here are some ways you can add on to your outdoor living space in Grand Rapids, Ada, Cascade, and the surrounding areas.

Provide Outdoor Areas Away From Pests with a Screened-in Porch

In some areas, particularly at night, insects and other pests create a nuisance for guests. Mosquitoes, spiders, and other pests drastically decrease one’s enjoyment while outdoors. Adding a screened-in porch allows you and your guests to enjoy your yard and other outdoor areas without being annoyed by insects. A screened-in porch also keeps out leaves, debris, and other items, keeping your patio much cleaner than one that does not have a screen.

Screened-in porches provide a barrier against pests, debris, and wind, and allow you and your guests to enjoy your outdoor space free of pests and other nuisances.

Add Custom Elements Such As Fire Pits, Outdoor Kitchens, & More that Create Focal Points

A yard with custom elements such as an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, or water features, benefits from an increase in outdoor living and...
