Create Beautiful Outdoor Living Space for your Lexington MA Home!

It’s a beautiful time of year in Lexington and many of us are taking advantage of the warmer weather to be outdoors.  Whether you plan on heading to the park, strolling along our charming historic streets, or are planning to cook out with friends; it’s time to take advantage of outdoor living!

As a Lexington Real Estate agent, I enjoy not only providing you with buying or selling tips, but ways in which you can enjoy your Lexington home to the fullest.  Today I wanted to take time to focus on your outdoor living space and what you can do to make it a welcome retreat for your Lexington home

1. Shield the view- If you find your backyard backs up to a neighbors without any privacy, or the homes on your street are set so that you can easily see multiple neighbors’ yards; consider shielding the view.  Sometimes the most un-relaxing thing is knowing others can see every move you make. Add shrubs or dwarf trees to, not only add green to your outdoor space, but to give yourself the atmosphere of a true respite.

2. Create a focal point- One of the main tips for an outdoor space is having a focal point.  Whether its a water feature, an outdoor fireplace, or an art installation; this can bring the space together and also act as a conversation piece.

3. Offer a variety of seating options- Benches, stools, couches and chairs will offer enough seating for everyone!  Kids will feel included in having their own seating and multiple seating allows you to easily move things around for your needs. 

4. Put everything in its’ place- Organize any outdoor tools such as hoses, watering cans, brooms or garden tools in such a way that is visually appealing and keeps your outdoor area from feeling cluttered.  It will also ensure you know exactly where everything is!

5. Create outdoor “rooms”- If you have the space, be sure to have separate seating arrangements to make your outdoor area feel like a true living space!  Break up the dining area from the lounge space and the kids area, and you’ll give off the feeling of a more spacious area!

You’ll enjoy hosting family and friends in your beautiful outdoor living space!  Or you may even just enjoy the beauty of solitude as you soak in the quiet and serenity of your own backyard.

If you have questions about what it’s like to live in Lexington because you’re considering  a move to the area, or you’re interested in buying a new home in Lexington and want to learn more about the current Lexington Real Estate market; please feel free to contact me today!

I look forward to hearing from you!
