Outdoor Living Areas
Are you looking to upgrade your home’s outdoor living area? When many of us picture our home, we think of the inside areas: the bedroom, living area, and kitchen. Too many of us neglect to consider our outdoor space a part of our home.
An outdoor living area provides a functional extension of your home that fits your lifestyle, while also helping increase your home’s value. However, the perfect outdoor living space does so much more than just giving you more space to live in.

Benefits of Adding an Outdoor Living Area to Your Home
Increases Home Value
An outdoor living area is a smart financial investment in your home. It increases your resale value and adds to the overall aesthetic appeal of your home for potential buyers, when the time comes. Outdoor living areas are becoming more and more popular, and adding one to your home creates not just monetary value, but also entertainment and sentimental value, too.
Provides Additional Entertaining Options
Speaking of entertainment, an outdoor living area gives you plenty of additional entertaining options for hosting family and friends—particularly in the times of COVID-19. There is no more need to worry about where you will sit everyone at a barbeque, graduation party, or holiday celebration when you can simply host everyone outside instead.
Improves Your Health
It’s not just a myth: spending more time outdoors is linked to several health benefits, including easing depression, giving you a boost of Vitamin D, improving your vision, and even better brain function. Spending time outside can also lower stress levels and boost your immune system. There is no better way to unwind after a long day than by coming home to relax in your new outdoor living area.
Dos and Don’ts for Outdoor Living Areas
There are several factors to consider when you are dreaming up the optimal outdoor living area for your home.
That’s where Arbeen Landscaping comes in. Our experts help you design an outdoor space that meets your needs.
Consider these dos and don’ts: Make sure to add outdoor lighting to your living space, for safety and in order to enjoy your new space at night. However, don’t take up too much of your backyard space. Many families like to still enjoy a bit of grass for kids and animals.
Features to Consider Adding to Your New Outdoor Living Area
There are several features we can add to your new outdoor living area to make the best possible use of your home’s outdoor space.
A deck can dramatically change your outdoor space. The addition of a deck to your outdoor living area helps you maximize both your available space and your enjoyment of your new outdoor living area. Many clients love adding an outdoor deck to their outdoor living area to elevate themselves from the grass and create more usable space.
In addition to a deck, there are other options for outdoor structures that you can add to your living area, like a screened room, pergola, or covered patio. There are a wide variety of materials and options to choose from to create the perfect outdoor structure for your yard.
Outdoor lighting is an integral part of your new outdoor living area that you don’t want to overlook. Arbeen Landscaping also offers landscape lighting services to make your outdoor space more inviting and safe.
Outdoor lighting helps you enjoy your new outdoor living area well into the evening and nighttime hours. Plus, it helps you and your guests navigate the paths and stairs safely, even in the dark.
You can use outdoor lighting to highlight your favorite features of your home or outdoor area, like pillars or water features. Outdoor lighting not only helps improve the aesthetics and ambiance of your outdoor living area, but it is also imperative for safety and security.
