The Benefits of an Outdoor Oasis
Having a personal oasis in the comfort of your own backyard can offer many benefits to both you and your family.
What better way to reduce stress and ease built-up tension, than by relaxing in the calming atmosphere of your backyard paradise? The installation of a hot tub, various water features, and luminous exterior lighting can help transfer you to a state of peace and tranquility.
Reduced stress can help lower blood pressure, improve weight maintenance efforts, and improve sleep patterns, among other benefits.
More Family Time
By improving the atmosphere, aesthetic and functionality of your backyard, you can create the perfect space to spend more time with family. Regardless if you’re eating dinner outside as a family, relaxing in the hot tub together, or simply recounting on the events of your day in the comfort of your trendy outdoor furniture, your backyard holds so much opportunity for quality family time.
There are many physical activities that can be performed in your backyard. Some of these activities include hot tub exercise, yoga, workout circuits, soccer, playing with the dog, and running around with the kids. When your backyard is in tip-top shape, it only adds to the likelihood that you’re going to utilize the space.
Fresh Air and Sunshine
You might be surprised at what a little fresh air and sunshine can do for your overall quality of life! Having a well-maintained and accessorized backyard can entice you to spend some more time in the great outdoors, especially when you have features such as a hot tub, fire pit, and outdoor furniture.
Improved Property Value
You can improve the value of your home by boosting the functionality, aesthetic and safety of your backyard. Backyard improvements such as landscaping, a deck/patio addition, exterior lighting, a hot tub, pathways, and a modern shed can all contribute to the value of your home, when/if the time comes to sell.
Planning, Budgeting & Research
Before you get started, we highly suggest that you do some planning first.
Your plan should include:
Before you put pen to paper, you may find it helpful to conduct some research first. This research could include various ideas for your backyard layout, different backyard product brands, how much these additions will cost, local landscape companies and backyard living stores.
Once you have a general idea of what you would like to do with your backyard and how much it will cost, you can more accurately execute your plan according to a timeline. Not to mention that this will make any interactions with sales associates, landscapers, and contractors much easier as you will know exactly what you want to do.
The landscape sets the tone for your backyard. It can help create a flow throughout your backyard and present areas for certain activities, such as a hot tub, outdoor dining and lounge area, a fire pit, BBQ, or gazebo. You can personalize your backyard oasis to include a variety of fresh green grass, colorful flower gardens, a water fountain, patio or deck area, exterior lighting, bird feeders, pergolas, a gazebo, mulch, and more.
Once your backyard features have been added, you can even think about adding flagstone walkways throughout your backyard, to and from the house. If you’re having trouble getting started, take some time to find a reputable local landscaper in Jackson Hole.
What do you want from your backyard?
Once you determine your needs and wants, it will be much easier for you to determine the features you want to include. Some of these features could include:
These features can help improve the aesthetic and usability of your backyard, effectively gearing it toward your personal preferences. If you’re looking to boost the peace and serenity of your backyard, you may want to include features such as a hot tub and water features, while outdoor furniture, exterior lighting and a BBQ could help create the perfect area for entertainment.
Accessories & Finishing Touches
Now that you have the backyard of your dreams, how will you accessorize it? Will you decorate your lounge area with outdoor candles, tiki torches, and string lighting? Or perhaps you’ll create a shelving area to keep water cleaning products for your hot tub.
