Your outdoor space brings you joy, relaxation, and freedom to spend time with loved ones. Unfortunately, when winter arrives, the drop in temperature can often lead to homeowners abandoning their backyard and hiding out until spring. Today, we are going to share with you our favorite winter backyard designs to keep you outside.
6 Winter Backyard Designs to Keep You Outside
Nothing says winter like a firepit! By creating a welcoming firepit with plentiful seating and space to set up s’mores and cocktails, everyone will want your home to be the evening’s destination.
Snuggling up in a pillow nest is a great way to still relax outside without freezing. You can create such a nest with a plethora of blankets and pillows on top of a comfy lounger. You can even add a heated blanket to the mix if you have access to an outlet for extra comfort.
Imagine this; you relax with a soak while staring at the stars and a wine glass in your hand. Can you picture it? Do you have a smile on your face at the thought? If so, you should sincerely consider getting a hot tub installed. Hot tubs are an excellent way to enjoy the cool winter weather outside without being cold at all! The only thing you have to worry about is getting to and from the tub; fortunately, a well-structured walkway will ensure a quick transition with no slipping (we can help with that too!)
Another way to stay warm during the winter is through heaters. You have likely seen a variety of versions at local restaurants. Guess what? They have home versions too! You can get a heater that suits your style and existing decor; then, all you have to do is turn it on.
What depresses many people about winter is the lack of color. Flowers die, trees lose their leaves, and life becomes a gray and white landscape. But that simply isn’t true! There are infinite ways to add a pop of color to your life, including planting winter greenery, like juniper and blue spruce.
Finally, for those who REALLY don’t like the cold, we recommend building an enclosure. By installing a pergola, gazebo, or even semi-permanent or permanent walls, panels, or curtains, you can create an outdoor enclosure that will help to retain heat and keep you cozy all year long.
