With the warmer weather hitting, it becomes an urge to lounge outdoors, begin barbecuing, and enjoying the sun's rays. Here are tips on getting your yard ready. 

  1. Create a shaded area: While the sun is warm and welcoming, there are times of the day the sun can be just way too much. Having a nicely sized covered space, created by a roof or awning, will help those who do not want to be exposed to the sun. An umbrella may be the simple way to accomplish this, but may also not do the full trick. 
  2. Furniture: Give careful consideration to the outdoor furniture; the style and layout of the furniture will set the tone for the space. Are you looking for a garden or beach look? Try a Teak L Sofa. How about if you are looking for an urban and city look? Get a black wrought iron dining set. 
  3. Create intimacy: It is important to make your backyard a private space from your neighbors, or unable to see from the street. You can achieve privacy in your yard by landscaping tall plants, such as a rose brush or vines, or by installing tall white fences. 
  4. Color schemes: Have a vision of what your backyard will look like before you actually put it all together. You will need to envision a theme or color pattern you like to appear. Just like inside your home, the space should flow with matching designs and patterns. 
  5. Treat your outdoor space like your indoor rooms: Make sure to maintain your outdoor set up as you would with your indoor space. Now that the weather is warmer, you will find yourself outside more often. Keep it clean and organized, trim any plants you will have, and make it comfy and inviting with decorations and pillows. 
  6. Plan for cooler weather: It is smart to be flexible with the outdoor space to match the changing weather of New York. The sunset will bring a cool breeze. Consider investing in a fire pit for gatherings at night. 

Have a happy summer homeowner!
