It’s officially March, which means we’re beginning to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring and summer. Welcoming warmer weather also means welcoming people into (and outside) your home, especially if you have a high school or college graduation, Memorial Day, or Fourth of July party on the horizon.
The landscape design experts at Clear Creek have created a handy checklist to make prepping your outdoor space for party season a breeze. From smaller projects like updating landscape beds, to bigger projects like refreshing your patio or building a new outdoor space, let our team help you make your outdoor space party perfect.
Clean up landscape beds: If your plants and shrubs were properly prepped for cold weather, you may only need to do a little spring cleaning, like removing debris and adding fresh mulch to your existing landscape beds.
Update landscape beds: If you need more than a little clean-up, incorporating a variety of mulch colors and types of rock may better fit your needs. When done with an outdoor designer’s artful eye, both can really make your flowers and shrubs pop. Add fresh edging, too, and you will have an updated, visually interesting space that accentuates your home’s overall look.
Create new landscaping: If your beds are looking a little tired or sparse, or if you need completely new landscaping, we can help. Our outdoor design experts will determine which plants will thrive based on the orientation of your home, so sun plants receive maximum light and shade plants remain healthy. We can mix a variety of colors and textures to create landscaping that achieves your ideal look.
Consider outdoor seating: If you’re planning a celebration, you want to make sure your home is comfortable and inviting and provides guests with a place to relax. Including a seating wall in your patio design is not only functional, but also adds height and visual interest.
Maintain a comfortable climate: If you’re planning on celebrating into the night, a fire feature will keep guests warm and cozy. Having plenty of seating around the fire area provides an added gathering space for your guests.
Add ambient lighting: The right outdoor lighting sets the tone for your outdoor gathering. In addition to being beautiful, it also serves the practical purpose of lighting your guests’ path and ensuring their safety, especially if you have stairs.
