Now that it's summer and the nationwide heat wave has passed, it's time to make sure your yard at your Eastern Panhandle home is looking its best. Whether you have a small yard or a large, majestic outdoor oasis, there are always little steps you can do to make it that much more relaxing and a great place to spend your summer downtime.
Amp up the Privacy
What is the privacy factor like at your Jefferson County or Berkeley County home? With no privacy from neighbors or traffic, spending time outdoors to relax can seem troublesome. An easy fix is to plant some tall shrubs or hedges along the border of your yard or even use boards and stanied wood planks to create a fence to keep out unwanted visitors. By bringing in greenery to heighten privacy, the relaxing, eco-friendly factor also increases.
Don't love your outdoor furniture? It might be time for a change! Bring in a dining table if your space is big enough for dinner parties and dining al fresco with family. Oversized pillows also make great seating for guests when placed next to an outdoor coffee table or around a fire pit. Don't want to spend big bucks on the upgrade? No problem! Simply change out the cushion covers on your chairs or sofa. It's a quick fix and will instantly transform the feel of your patio and yard.
1 Space, Many Rooms
Bet when you decided to purchase a West Virginia home you didn't count the yard or patio as an additional room, did you? Well, consider the space as more living area. You have one space, but can divide it into "rooms" to give it more purpose, flow, and function. Separate your seating area from the garden, create another vibe around a water feature or fountain, and another space will function as your eating area or grilling space. When you break up the yard and outdoor living quarters, it will instantly feel bigger.
