The weather is warming up in Pittsburgh, and there’s something so special about this time of year. Maybe it’s the promise of the gloriously long summer ahead, or the excitement of evenings still tinged with a cool breeze. Whatever you love most about spring, there’s no better way to enjoy it than by relaxing outside in your own beautiful outdoor space.
Let’s look at five ways to enjoy the outdoor spaces of your Weaver Home and make the most of this beautiful spring weather.
1) Turn your patio into an outdoor living room
Turn up the comfort factor on your deck or patio with a few plush couches or settees, a soft outdoor rug, pillows for lounging, and lots of cozy blankets for after-dinner drinks and conversation. This time of year, we promise your outdoor living room will get just as much use as your indoor one!
2) Make s’mores with the kids or grandkids
If you’re enjoying one of our spacious single family homes at Hickory Glen or Camp Trees, your back yard is the perfect spot for a fire pit. You can find them in an array of sizes and materials to match your style. The little ones will LOVE making their own desserts, and you’ll love making sweet memories, around the fire in the comfort and safety of your own yard.
3) Take in a movie
Believe it or not, your courtyard is the perfect place for movie night! Purchase a screen and projector (or get creative with a white sheet) and set up blankets, pillows, low chairs, and of course, a fully-loaded snack bar to enjoy your favorite films under the stars.
4) Let the light shine
Creative lighting can completely transform your single family home’s outdoor space. Use string lights, fairy curtain lights, or paper lanterns to instantly create ambiance and make our covered patios or decks even cozier and more welcoming. When you add a pair of comfortable, cushioned chairs and your favorite beverage, you’ll never want to leave.
5) Dine outdoors in elegance
Take advantage of spring’s milder weather by having special occasion meals at home. Create an unforgettable dining experience with formal dinnerware, candles, and a gorgeous tablescape. For ultimate luxury, have a catering company take care of all the cooking and cleaning up.
However you choose to use your outdoor space, it’s sure to be a highlight of your new Weaver home. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy the great outdoors than right in your own backyard!
