Ohio summers are great for cooking and entertaining outside. Nothing beats having family or friends over to watch the sunset and enjoy some delicious barbecue! Of course, to have everyone over in the first place, you need a great space for hosting. Here are some things to consider when planning your backyard.

Organizing the Backyard

A porch, deck, or patio can create a great outdoor living space. To make the most of these features, consider the flow of your backyard as a whole and the activities you and your family will do the most often. For example, if you regularly host backyard cookouts, your patio should provide enough space for all your guests and a cook area. If you plan on installing a pool, you should consider how the pool and patio line up with each other.

Off Season Storage

A great backyard space also needs winter storage for your outdoor gear. After all, you’re not going to want your grill out in the backyard when big snowstorms hit! Installing a storage shed or coming up with another storage solution on your property should also be an important consideration when planning your backyard.

Professional landscaping can help turn your vision into reality. While Capstone Custom Homes doesn’t do landscaping ourselves, we can recommend great local contractors who will design a backyard that suits your needs.
