More time spent at home during 2020 has helped many homeowners move forward with embracing outdoor living and making improvements to their outdoor amenities.
Patios are more important then ever when considering a home. Is the space covered? How much sunlight does it receive? How many seasons will this space be usable? These questions are common when buyers are viewing listings. Popular options in the York, PA area include paver patios, wooden decks and covers such as pergolas or gazebos. This functional space adds space for entertaining and outdoor dining options. Water and fire features have gained popularity in creating a peaceful and tranquil environment for the entire family.
Gardening in the backyard is also very popular, even in smaller lots. It is important that the garden area be planned prior to installation to ensure that it fits and flows with the functionality of the rest of the yard. If space is too limited, raised beds or container gardens make a great option. Nothing beats walking to the backyard and grabbing your salad ingredients for dinner.
Gone are the days that the yard is only for the kids and the pets. Homeowners are making outdoor space as customized as home interiors. If you plan on marketing your home in the future, make sure that you have planned your outside space to be alluring to prospective buyers.
