Want to increase the square footage of your entertaining space? Or create a sanctuary that you’ll never want to leave? Open up your space by bringing the indoors out. We make it easy to do! Hagood Homes designs many of our floorplans with the nature lover in mind, including outdoor decks, spacious front porches, and private balconies. Here are 6 ways to make your backyard an oasis.
Add Coastal Landscaping
Make your backyard feel like an oasis by incorporating coastal grasses and palms. Our vendors will work with you to create the perfect landscape design for your new home. If gardening is your passion, you might consider building a living wall that adds privacy to your space and an opportunity to indulge your favorite hobby.
Install a Screened Porch
Many of Hagood’s homes – like our Albemarle Sound I – have optional covered and screened porches that offer the perfect opportunity for outdoor entertaining or relaxing without worrying about the weather. Add a beautiful outdoor dining set and enjoy your meals al fresco.
Add Comfortable Seating
To create a true refuge outdoors, make sure you incorporate comfortable seating. For traditional patio furniture, find some well-padded cushions or invest in a resort-grade outdoor sofa and table set.
Design a Balcony Retreat
The second-floor lounge area in our Shackleford Banks Alternate floorplan features a private balcony perfect for watching the sun come up or go down. Add a planter, a small bistro table, and chairs, and you have the perfect place to relax.
Add Outdoor Lighting
If you plan to enjoy your outdoor space in the evenings, the right lighting can take your patio space from so-so to oasis status in a hurry. From solar to professionally installed landscape lighting to string lights to up-lighting your trees, the right lighting can help you make the most of your time spent outdoors.
Create a Gathering Area with a Gas Fire Pit
Love the idea of a cozy fire in the backyard but not the messy cleanup or campfire smell? Gas and propane fire pits come in beautiful shapes, sizes, and colors to fit every taste. The firepit centerpiece creates the perfect gathering spot on those crisp fall nights.
Incorporate a Water Feature or Pool
Water features are popular additions to any backyard oasis. There may be nothing more relaxing than the sound of water trickling. Fountains come in a wide variety of styles, or you can turn your backyard into a private resort by adding a pool.
