Outdoor Living All Year Long

The first addition that can make outdoor living more enjoyable is a fire feature. Even in warm weather, a well placed fire feature can draw your attention and make you feel welcomed. In cold weather, it can make your outdoor space useable when, otherwise, you would have to stay indoors.

Fire tables, Bromeric heaters or Napoleon patio heaters are easy enough to add to your patio or porch. These are more portable, and can actually be moved according to the season. One of the most popular seating arrangements for these fire features is circular seating, giving all guests equal access to the warmth.

A fireplace, on the other hand, is a permanent structure that makes a real architectural statement. These can be as intricate or simple as you want, and are often built at a spot in the garden that will break prevailing breezes, serving dual purpose.

Outdoor Cooking

Cooking outside has evolved into a lifestyle. No longer are the side dishes prepared in the house and hauled outside, while the meat is cooked on a grill. The entire meal can now be prepared outdoors with skill, in the comfort of your outdoor kitchen. Grill islands are popular, and as more and more appliances receive UL certification for outdoor use, they make the outdoor kitchen even more luxurious.

Not only can the cooking be taken care of outdoors, the entire cleanup can be in your outdoor kitchen, as well. Dishwashers, ice makers, refrigerators, and drink stations are now UL rated so that they are safe for use outdoors.

Entertaining outdoors has never been easier. With the right hardscaping and appliances, you can extend the use of your garden for months out of every year.
