Winter Outdoor Space Ideas

February is a great month to start thinking about upgrades to your home’s outdoor areas. The coldest part of the winter is over, and you can start enjoying your outdoor spaces or start planning for spring.

Here are some ideas for refreshing your outdoor space during the winter months.

Maximize Your Firepit

A firepit can be the centerpiece of any outdoor entertainment space. It is a place to gather and also a way to keep warm during the winter months. Consider upgrading your firepit or adding detailing like pavers or stones. Surrounding your firepit with quality outdoor furniture is also a good long-term investment.

Upgrade Lighting

Lighting can make or break any room in your home, and the same is true for your outdoor space. Something as simple as hanging light fixtures can truly transform an outdoor area. 

Consider installing string lights, lighting your walkways, or installing spotlighting along your trees or greenery. Quality outdoor lighting can make your space more inviting and comfortable for your family and guests.

Prep for the Spring

Some communities are just too cold in February to enjoy outdoor spaces. Instead, you should consider preparing the area for spring. You can do this by power washing your deck, seeding grass, and planning landscaping in advance.

If you want to do a large project to finish your outdoor space, it is a good idea to start planning sooner rather than later. Once the spring months roll around, it can be difficult to get your hands on the materials you’ll need.

Refresh Your Deck

The winter is a great time to refresh your deck with new staining or even replace it. A new deck can make your outdoor space look brand-new. While it can be tempting to try a deck project like staining stairs on your own, it’s always better to trust an experienced professional who knows what to look out for.
