At Harris Landscape Construction here in Reno, we’ve always understood the value and appeal of a well-planned outdoor space. But the pandemic brought that concept into sharp focus for many. If upgrading your outdoor space has moved up your to-do list, here are your upgrades to your backyard that are always worth the money.
A Built-in Grill
A professional grill setup is more than a place to flip burgers. It becomes a conversation piece, a gathering place, and it will add value to your home should you sell in the future. It’s a true extension of your kitchen, adding function and appeal. This shouldn’t be considered a place to cut corners. A professional installation that will stand the test of time and the freeze-thaw cycles of Northern Nevada is a much better investment.
A Fire Feature
We’ve written about the benefits of a fire feature in outdoor spaces before – they’re a fan favorite here in our high desert climate. You’ll enjoy them for many months out of the year, and when they’re not in use, they serve as a beautiful centerpiece in your landscaping. Plus, they’re incredibly versatile in terms of design, size and aesthetic for spaces big and small.
Good lighting has a huge impact on outdoor space, and it’s more than just functional. Of course, you want your spaces to be well-lit for safety and security, but the visual appeal of illumination can’t be overlooked. There are hardwire options from landscape construction companies like HLC, but you can also try features like string lights, tiki torches and lanterns.
Good landscaping boosts resale value, but it can also have a tremendous impact on your personal enjoyment of your home. A space that’s both functional and beautiful creates privacy, offers shade, expands your entertaining space, and serves as a wonderful place to rest, relax, and unwind.
