Expanding your living space doesn’t have to be about indoor square footage. Have you ever thought about how you could add some fun to your yard with a new patio or outdoor fireplace? It’s not too late! You can still enjoy your yard in the fall with a nicely done addition to your outdoor area.

A space that helps you enjoy the outdoors

One of the best things about living in the Great Lake State is a true experience of all four seasons. Picture yourself enjoying the fall (and maybe winter, too!) outdoors, cozying up to a nice, warm fireplace. All it takes is a little creativity and the proper planning.

As the temperatures cool, it’s tempting to start snuggling inside and preparing for winter weather. But what if you checked one more thing off your outdoor wish list instead?

It’s time to get start capitalizing on the yard space that you have. What do you picture for your dream patio space? Here are just a few of the feel-good ideas to consider:

  • What materials do you prefer?
  • Does it include built-in seating?
  • A fire pit for roasting marshmallows and meats?
  • A fireplace for enjoying the heat and ambiance?
  • What landscaping might enhance the project?
  • Maybe an outdoor grill and fridge?
  • Or an outdoor seating area with a flat-screen TV to enjoy the big games?

Enhance your yard with a nice patio or fireplace

Outdoor FireplaceNot only will a new patio fill a hole that you never knew you were missing in your yard, but it’ll also be a big attraction for your neighbors, friends and family. If you enjoy hosting, a new patio or fireplace is an investment in your future fun as well as a solid way to increase your home value.

Once your project is complete, it’s a fun reason to get together and celebrate! Think of the possibilities of future birthdays, holidays and get-togethers once you have that beautiful patio or fireplace.

Take advantage and get out into some fresh air in the fall and winter months (as well as future springs and summers!). Bundled up in front of a fire is quite a lovely way to pass a few hours of the day. Not only can you enjoy the health benefits of spending time outside, you also gain the mental and social benefits of spending time in community with your loved ones.

Trust the experts to make it the best

Everyone knows someone who likes to DIY with outdoor projects. This one, however, might require the expert skills of someone who knows how to properly prepare your yard, anticipate drainage issues, lay out the plan, order the project supplies and complete it within your timeline. There’s plenty of opportunity in there for DIY delays and redoing something that didn’t work out the way it should. You don’t want to go into the winter months with a half-finished project in your yard.
