Preparing for Thanksgiving: Luxury Backyard Updates and Management Tips
With all the fallen leaves, dead trees and plants, and the overall shabbiness that can befall your luxury backyard this time of year, it's going to need a bit of sprucing up before Thanksgiving celebrations can commence. From landscape to hardscape and everything in between, these tips will help your backyard look perfect for the luxury, outdoor Thanksgiving of your dreams. 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. Read on to feel fully prepared for the yummiest of all holidays!
1. Landscape Maintenance
Having a variety of guests over, especially with the social distancing required at the moment, can mean that not everyone will be able to comfortably fit on your luxury hardscape or patio. Instead, clean and trim your landscape to arrange the outdoor furniture in a fun and cozy way that still allows for comfort and safety. Possibly arranging tables and chairs under the outdoor structure, or setting up the appetizers near the water feature? Making sure to trim the hedges and keep the walkways clear and neat, adding some lanterns for ambience, can help use the entirety of your outdoor space this holiday. Don't worry, there is room for everyone!
2. Outdoor Kitchen Prep
Possibly the most important of all luxury backyard features for this holiday in particular, making sure your outdoor kitchen is clean, up to date, and operating properly is vital to cooking success. With our array of outdoor kitchen designs and amenities, from grills to fridges to countertops and ovens, the whole Thanksgiving feast can be prepared in a comfortable outdoor cooking haven. Worried about being cold? Invest in some outdoor heating lamps to place around the exterior of the outdoor kitchen to create a beautiful bubble of heat- and with the steaming pie fresh from the oven, there's no chance you'll feel the chill.
To keep your guests cozy and happy during the Thanksgiving celebrations, it's important to make sure everyone is warm and toasty while enjoying a magical backyard experience. Groundscapes has a variety of fire features and lighting to both bring the heat and impress. Our favorite combinations include a luxury fire pit in the center of the patio, torches along the outer edge of the hardscape, and the glow of string lights all over the outdoor structure. No matter what time the Thanksgiving meal will be served, the fire and lighting features help to bring that special holiday cheer.
We wish you the happiest of Thanksgivings, and no matter how strange the holiday may look this year, we are content knowing that with a Groundscapes luxury backyard, you and your guests can celebrate safely and happily.
