How to Manage a Snowy Luxury Backyard
So you have your luxury backyard all heated up and decorated for Christmas, complete with a few outdoor heaters, fire features, and glowing lights- but then the inevitable snow comes. Don't get us wrong, we love a snow day, especially with hot cocoa and cozy slippers, but how on earth are we supposed to enjoy being outside as well? Groundscapes is here with all the tips and tricks to not only care for but enjoy your luxury backyard when it turns into a fluffy, white winter wonderland. At Groundscapes, we bring over 20 years of experience working with some of the finest commercial enterprises in the Omaha Metro and La Vista area. During that time, we’ve learned a thing or two from our partners about the importance of (luxury) landscaping for your business and the impact it can have on your customers and employees. Don't let the snow keep you stuck inside with cabin fever- read on to learn how to enjoy your luxury backyard no matter what!
1. Clear the Hardscapes
Yes, shoveling can be tiresome and chilly, but whether you want to hire outside help or gather the family together to spend some quality time outside, clearing out your hardscape is a must. With proper outdoor furniture coverings and a covered outdoor structure, it is easier to keep your patio and other hardscape spaces dry and snow less as well! Nevertheless, shoveling off your hardscape is the first step to making sure you can still enjoy your wintery patio, outdoor kitchen, or seating area. After the hardscape is cleared, its then important to get the fire features up and roaring as well as the outdoor heaters and lighting- this will help to melt snow from the fringes of your space and begin to get heat circulating
2. Utilize the Outdoor Kitchen
You heard that correctly! By utilizing your luxury, protected outdoor kitchen to make hot cocoa, coffee, or other warming food or drinks, you can enjoy the snowy landscape from the safety of your space. Gather around the outdoor fireplace or other fire feature, turn on the twinkly lights and outdoor heater, and don blankets and sweaters to sip your warm beverage from a comfortable seat. Especially if you have torches or multiple outdoor heaters around the outdoor kitchen, you will feel cozy and at ease, and much better in the fresh, wintry air.
3. Play in the Landscape
Let us all embrace and return to our inner child by using the landscapes and open spaces of the luxury backyard as they are meant to be used- for play and enjoyment! Whether the kids want to go sledding, build snowmen, or play some snowy football, your organized and cared for luxury landscape is perfect for all the outdoor fun the season brings. You can sit and enjoy a hot cocoa next to the outdoor firepit while they work off their snow day cabin fever, and take in the sights and smells of fresh snow.
We understand that it may be harder to fully enjoy your luxury backyard when it feels snowy and cold out, but with Groundscapes amenities and tips, you can still bring all the comfort and coziness from inside out!
