Designing a Landscape for Entertaining

Yarmouth has a vibrant social scene, where members of the arts community, local service organizations, and other residents regularly gather to celebrate life’s finer things. For homeowners who love to host events, landscape design really matters. The choices you make when working with your landscape designer can influence the size, scope and type of parties you can succeed with.

Love to cook outdoors? Barbecue cooking has become a spectator sport. A top trend in the entertainment landscape arena is the elevated cooking platform, where grills and firepits are built-in masonry features surrounded by spaces where friends can observe the action. Some outdoor kitchens even include plumbing and refrigeration features, so everything you need to create a show stopping meal is right there for you. Plants can be strategically deployed to enhance the outdoor cooking feature: imagine what you can do with fresh chives and rosemary always available, or a container planted with a bay laurel tree – great for Italian food!

If you are entertaining lots of children and active young people it’s a good idea to have your Yarmouth landscape company plant hardy, drought-resistant grasses. These varieties can stand up to the heavy activity and dry conditions; to keep everything perpetually party ready have your lawn service mow on Wednesdays or Thursday for weekend events.

Landscape design can play a huge role in creating a desirable aesthetic in your yard. If you want to set a specific emotional tone for an event, choosing the right flowers can make all the difference. The use of annual plantings as well as container shrubs means you can vary your landscape year to year without having to do major changes; over the course of time, one Western MA family did their yard first in shades of yellow, then pinks, and finally vibrant reds. They’ve found it adds joy to their life as well as enjoyment to their guests’ experience.
