Does an “outdoor oasis” sound like your summer dream? In this segment of The Marc and Mandy Show, celebrity designer Evelyn Eshun chats with Giorgio Simonetta of Northland Paving about trends in outdoor design and landscaping, and how to create an outdoor oasis of your very own!
The Trend: Creating A Backyard Oasis
One bourgeoning trend in backyard design and landscaping is to convert your backyard into a backyard oasis. This could include anything from adding an outdoor kitchen, water features, and cabanas.
Why Are Backyard Overhauls Trendy?
This is a trend for a number of reasons. First of all, converting your backyard into a backyard oasis can have a positive impact on your home’s overall resale value. These types of backyard additions are also great if you happen to enjoy entertaining. Finally, it’s expensive to manage a home and a separate cottage for vacationing, so why not bring cottage living to your backyard?
What Design Ideas Are There To Consider?
Quilting is a contemporary design idea, which involves building a retaining wall to house your built-in barbecue, your built-in sink, and your built-in fridge. Not only does quilting serve a practical purpose, but it allows you to create a zone in your backyard oasis, specifically for the kitchen. Quilting can also be utilized with a fire feature, such as a fireplace.
