Tips for Planning an Outdoor Makeover
April 1st, 2019
Planning an outdoor space takes time and patience. Here are some tips to help you get started whether you are planning to spruce up an existing outdoor space or if you are starting with a blank canvas. Oasis Outdoor Living & Landscapes will help you focus on the end result and not get overwhelmed with the process.
Here is a checklist to keep you on track and ready to realize your dream of an outdoor space you can enjoy for years to come.
STEP 1: GET INSPIRED
Before you get started, take some time to explore the options and consider what your goals are for the space. Do you want an area conducive to entertaining large groups? Are you looking for more of a quiet space to read and reflect?
You will also want to consider issues like design schemes and kid-friendliness. Think about entertaining areas outdoors for your kids. As they get older, they want to spend more time with their friends — outdoor living spaces with patios and built in seating including fireplaces or fire pits are great places for friends to gather and socialize. Not only will you have the “cool house” to hangout, you will get to spend more time with your own family too because they won’t always be running over to a “friends” house.

STEP 2: START PLANNING
Think about how you will use your space and what your goals are for entertaining.
What are you currently missing in your backyard that you want? Do you want to start fresh or are you looking to add on to an existing space?
What are your priorities?
- Are you looking for shade?
- Do you want more seating?
- Is privacy your main concern?
- Is grilling most important?
Consider your budget and we will work with you to find and affordable solution. With creative planning and realistic budgeting will find solutions with our expertise.
STEP 3: START TRANSFORMING
Once you have agreed upon the design details, be sure to discuss the particulars of the installation process so that everyone is on the same page in terms of time tables, disruptions and overall expectations.
STEP 4: ADD SOME STYLE
For many people, this is the “fun” part. Modern outdoor living design mirrors indoor design trends in a number of ways — including furniture, rugs, throw pillows, lighting and decorative accessories.
Enjoy filling your space with outdoor versions of all of your favorite indoor comforts, including appliances, sound equipment and tech gadgets.
