In your own Landmark 24 home, no matter which attractive community you choose, outdoor entertaining has never been more convenient and comfortable. It’s almost summer – time to move the party outdoors.
Outdoor Entertaining in Georgia and South Carolina
An outdoor entertainment area should be lovely to look at, comfortable, include the right equipment to make delicious food and drink and offer delightful recreational opportunities for everyone. Whether you are someone who entertains outdoors year-round or occasionally, a Landmark 24 community can offer you the flexibility and outdoor space you are looking for.
Year-Round Outdoor Enjoyment
If your family and friends enjoy cooking outdoors and taking advantage of all the amenities that a Landmark 24 community offers outside the home, you might think about setting up a permanent outdoor area with an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, dining room furniture and a comfortable seating arrangement.
Fortunately, there are some highly reputable landscape contractors in Georgia and South Carolina. These professionals can help you design the perfect hardscape for your garden, outdoor kitchen and living room. This is a smart way to add extra "living" space to entertain and relax with friends and family, while adding value to your home without the cost of building an addition.
Don't know where to begin? One resource is your local home builders association, like the Home Builders Association of Greater Savannah. Professional organizations like this have access to many contractors and professionals who are experience, licensed and insured, and can provide any service you may need for your new home.
Occasional Outdoor Enjoyment
Even if you do not entertain outdoors on a regular basis, there are still plenty of ways you can enjoy the outdoors. There are many types of portable grills, coolers in all sizes for drinks, and comfortable furniture that can be folded up and stored when not in use. Tables, chairs and even outdoor sofas and chaises can be easily stored in a shed or garage when not in use.
The key to any successful outdoor space, whether temporary or permanent, is attractive furnishings and the appropriate arrangement of the furniture. Arrange comfortable seating for ultimate ease of conversation for all your guests and family. You will want soft cushions in colors that suit the surrounding plants and flowers. Choose a table big enough for several people to eat around and to set food on for dining al fresco in the cool evening air.
Food Always Tastes Better Outside
Maybe it’s the charcoal, or simply the outside air, but there is nothing like grilled meats, vegetables and fruits hot off the grill and enjoyed outside whether at a table in the garden or on the patio. It’s a nice change of pace for the cook and diners alike.
Whether your outdoor space is permanent or portable, make it attractive and comfortable with colorful, creative plates and glasses, table coverings and lighting. Don’t forget the pesticides. Bugs can ruin everything. Place citronella candles or other bug dissuaders abundantly around the space to keep your patio pest free so everyone can enjoy the great outdoors.
