Four Easy Ways to Create your Backyard Oasis

The sweet sounds of summer are in full swing and it’s time to decide how you’re designing the perfect outdoor living space this season. In this blog, we’re going to cover four ways to transform your yard into an oasis perfect for everyday living and even a staycation this summer!

Your outdoor furniture.

Before you head to your nearest shopping centre, it’s important to take a look at your space and determine what you can fit comfortably. It’s easy to get lost in the excitement of this season’s hottest trends, so make sure you’re shopping for your space and personal preferences. 

Seating options range from stand-alone chairs to full patio sectionals. In addition, you’ll also have seating available from your dining table. Remember to consider how often you entertain when making your final decision on how much seating you’ll need.

What’s hot for 2022? The egg chair!

It’s the perfect way to freshen up any space with a statement piece while providing a cozy place to curl up with coffee and a book in the morning.

Smokin’ hot ways to cook outside.

How are you cooking on your deck this summer? It’s no secret – smokers are everything right now! Beyond providing restaurant-worthy dishes, they can really compliment your lifestyle this summer.  If you’re on the fence between getting your hands on a smoker or continuing with a traditional BBQ this summer, here are two scenarios to help you decide.

Do you like to take things slow in the summer?

If you’re the type of person who loves being at home on a Saturday and keeping yourself busy outside, then a smoker could be a great addition to your deck! Smokers have a broad range of capabilities, but they’re best enjoyed when you can prepare meals at a low temperature for a long period of time.

You can find an array of new and interesting recipes on Pinterest and give them a try! You’d be able to prepare your protein in the morning, pop it on the smoker, get to work around the yard all afternoon and enjoy the sweet smell of your favourite pellets. 

Do you prefer to be on the go?

Then a traditional BBQ could be the best fit for you. You can still try your hand at drool-worthy recipes without being tied to the house all day! Head out for a round of golf, spend the afternoon on the water and come home to grill dinner in under an hour.

Have room to grow this summer.

We’ve learned a thing or two from our wonderful residents about gardening. Between their raised gardens and large beds out in their yard – there’s been no shortage of homegrown fruits, vegetables and flowers in the community.

One of the benefits of having your very own, large yard is that you aren’t limited to your garden size! As opposed to other living options – like a multi-level condo where you have a small balcony – the sky is the limit for your green thumb in the Meadows!

Spend your nights under the stars

Picture this: the sun is setting and you can hear crickets in the distance. It’s way too beautiful to head inside and call it a night – don’t worry, you won’t have to this year! Create the perfect atmosphere to spend your evenings on your large deck. Get creative with a fire table and hot tub. You can also add ambiance with Edison lights to spend your nights counting stars with your family! 

It’s time to have your yard, your way. Wouldn’t you agree?
