Advantages of Constructing a New Space Outside the Home

We meet with many homeowners in the winter and early spring to talk about expanding their indoor spaces into livable outdoor areas. These are the main points that we discuss with them:


  • Outdoor living spaces offer a lot of options. Both hardscaping and landscaping can be designed for your yard. Hardscaping uses materials like stone to create driveways, walkways, patios, and courtyards, while landscaping involves plantings, beds, mulching, edging, outdoor lighting, and irrigation systems. Most homes can benefit from either of these projects or both.
  • You can easily entertain in these spaces. By “entertain,” we mean anything from throwing lavish parties to simply enjoying the outdoors with your neighbors. You no longer have to worry that you don’t have enough space in your home for a party or dinner. Now, people can enjoy a day lounging on your new patio, while you use your outdoor kitchen or fire pit.
  • You’re investing in your home with newer materials while embracing a popular concept. When you think of an investment in your home, you may be imagining a new kitchen or updated game room. However, new outdoor living space is often high on the list of many homeowners who love to spend time outdoors year round. If you decide to sell your home in the future, buyers will be impacted when seeing your extended space.
