Learn How To Spruce Your Yard Year-Round

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 20 January , 2016

The holidays are a great time for getting together with family and friends.  In San Diego, you and your guests can spend the holidays outside if you choose!  We are very fortunate in being blessed with weather that allows us to use our yards as an extension of the home, even during the months that the rest of the country considers “winter.”

Have you considered creating an outdoor living space for entertainment now and throughout the year?  JUNIPER Landscaping can help you design and build the perfect outdoor entertainment area so that your guests can enjoy themselves at the holidays and at any time you wish to gather.

Here are a few tips for designing your beautiful outdoor “room”:

  • Choose a spot with shade and sun. A flat, level surface that is partially shaded is ideal for an outdoor entertainment space.  With some flexible and moveable furniture, guests can seat themselves in the sun when it is cool or in the shade when it is warm, maximizing the outdoor space in all types of weather.
  • Choose a spot with room to grow. You may start with a table and chairs, a few benches or some other type of furniture for your outdoor space, but leave yourself some room to add to the area as you begin to use it more frequently.  Try to locate non-moveable items, such as a fire pit, with room around them to move furniture into new configurations as your needs change.
  • Zone your areas. There is no reason to limit yourself to one area.  If you have several great spots in your yard, consider creating a separate living, playing or entertainment area in each and connecting them with some interesting walkways.  One area could be for children, one for cooking and eating, and one for relaxing or reading.
  • Think about what you want. It is great to get ideas from magazines or other sources, but you have to consider what will work for you and your family.  If you need space for kids, do not create a formal garden.  If you want a certain type of seating, incorporate it into your plan.  Remember, you are creating your individual dream space!

Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. 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
