Because of Palm Beach’s beautiful year-round weather, many people who live in the area feel their yard is more of an extension of their home than it is a piece of land on which their home sits. Florida backyards often see as much traffic as the indoor areas, and as such, many residents want to ensure the yard space is just as rich and inviting as the living spaces. If you’re a Palm Beach resident who embraces the importance of having an inviting yard, here are several tips on how to create a backyard oasis.
Speaking of ways to extend the inside of your home outside, screened porches are another popular backyard alteration to Palm Beach homes. Florida residents know despite the sunny summers, the nice weather comes with a couple of negatives to offset the positives. For one, mosquitoes and other flying insects tend to be out and about on nice days; not to mention the sun’s powerful rays causing outdoor furniture to fade a lot quicker thawhat’s considered typical. A screened porch allows for a nice summer breeze to come through while avoiding two of the most difficult products of lovely weather.
Grilling is a popular outdoor activity when we have guests visiting our homes, and as such, having a grill gazebo is always a smart move. Not only does it encourage your guests to gather outside while the smells of food cooking waft through the air, a gazebo will also provide protection from taking in a little too much sunlight. It also prevents your barbeque from being ruined should rain occur, as is relatively common in Florida’s tropical climate.
If you live in an area with a dense population, planting some quick-growing shrubbery might be in your best interest. While it is great to live in close proximity to other people, many residents find that their yards are lacking in privacy. Not only will a few well-placed shrubs help separate your space from that of your neighbors’ yards, plant life stands to beautify your space and increase the value of your property. Because our yards are as individual as we are, there is no shortage of different landscaping combinations to try.
Because there is no shortage of unique additions one can add to a Palm Beach yard, the available combinations of backyard features can be mixed and matched to fit your one of a kind needs while making your home and yard stand out from your neighbors.
