One of the best ways to really make the most of your home is to add an outdoor grilling area specifically designated for barbeques. By doing this, you’re expanding the living area of your home – which translates into a very good return on your investment.

While designing an outdoor grilling area may sound overwhelming, Juniper Landscape Company will provide you with a few general ideas in this issue to get you thinking in the right direction. Of course, no two yards are identical, so keep in mind that we’d welcome the opportunity to talk with you one-on-one to develop ideas specific to your yard.

Why should I install an outdoor grilling area?

Beyond extending the living area of your home, here are a few more benefits of an outdoor grilling area.

  • Emphasis is placed on more healthy eating, as grilled food has more taste and less grease than just about all other forms of cooking.
  • They’re great for entertainment as guests are known to gather and socialize while they watch their meal being prepared.
  • Your utility costs are lowered because your indoor air conditioner is not having to compensate for the heat in the kitchen.
  • The value of your home property is increased dramatically as designated outdoor grilling areas make a strong impression during open houses.

Where should I place my outdoor grilling area?

For starters, the location of your cooking station should be on a level and flat surface, and rather close – but not against – your house. The key is a location that’s close enough so that it’s easy to transport food and other supplies to and from the house. Plus, being close to the house makes it easier to extend the gas, electric, and water lines for your appliances.

Ideal spots include a pool, patio, or deck. Of course, you can also use pavers to establish your outdoor grilling location.

What appliances should I consider for my outdoor grilling area?

Because the focal point will obviously be the grill itself, this is probably the most important component.

You may be tempted to select a separate grill with wheels. While these options are good in terms of the flexibility they provide, a built-in grill provides you with a more seamless look. Plus, most built-in grills expand your cooking area and provide you with more fuel options (charcoal, gas, wood or pellet).

For added convenience, other popular components for outdoor grilling areas include an outdoor refrigerator, a power burner for stir-frying, and an outdoor sink.

    I must say that Juniper Landscape Company exceeded my expectations, completing the job in a timely fashion and for a fair price which we negotiated ahead of time, and which did not change even though there were difficulties with the terrain around my home in Stonebridge Estates (Scripps Ranch). Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
