The growing attraction of creating secluded staycation spots was among the top gardening trends for 2019 for an entry we recently wrote. With the summer months and vacation time upon us, it’s time to enjoy some entertainment and relaxation – without leaving the comfort of our own home.

In this issue, the professional San Diego landscape designers with Juniper Landscape will give you a few tips for making your home a staycation destination.  

Why should I put in the effort for a staycation spot at my house?

For most people, vacations are once or twice per year occasions. With a staycation-designed landscape, you get to enjoy the benefits year-round – without the headaches of airport lines and living out of suitcases.

How can I create a staycation destination at my house?

To get the most out of your staycation destination, the advice and expertise of a licensed landscape design company like Juniper Landscape can prove invaluable.

To get the ball rolling, we’re happy to share a few general ideas.

  1. Create your zones.
    Ideally, there should be specific areas – or zones – for different activities. Good starting points include areas specific for cooking and eating, lounging, and mingling with guests.
  2. Let the music play.
    A weatherproof speaker system is a fantastic addition to any outdoor area, and can prove invaluable in shaping the mood of the moment.
  3. Add stable furniture that will last.
    As far as chair are concerned, the cheap plastic variety are not good for relaxation. Instead, opt for sturdy wood items with heavy cushions. Also, consider an outdoor-safe rug and outdoor buffet tables to make outdoor entertaining easy.
  4. Create a focal point with a fire or water feature.
    Humans seem drawn to water and fire…looking at them often has a calming effect. A bubbling water feature, large outdoor fireplaces or even small tabletop versions can be extraordinarily effective at creating a powerful gravitational pull.

    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
