Arizona has no shortage of beautiful outdoor space, which is why homes are often built on large lots with plentiful backyards. What can you do to make the most of all that space and spend more time taking in the mild climate and sweeping mountain views of Southern Arizona? Keep reading for some tips on enhancing the space in your new backyard.
Add a Fire Pit
On chilly fall and winter nights, a fire pit can keep you warm and let you enjoy evenings under the stars. You can roast marshmallows with the family, plan a romantic fireside dinner, or host outdoor parties with a fire pit and surrounding seating built into your backyard design.
Ditch the Grass
When people first move to Sierra Vista, they are often surprised at how verdant it is. There is an abundance of trees, shrubs, cacti, and other high desert plants that create a rich landscape, but grass is still not a common feature. That’s because managing a healthy lawn takes a lot of water and maintenance, so it’s not a practical feature for most homes. You might add a small patch of grass for the family pet, but it shouldn’t be your primary ground cover in the yard.
Invest in a High-Quality Grill
You can make your patio space more like an outdoor kitchen in Arizona, because the climate is so mild that you can spend most evenings outside. So, it’s worth investing in a high-quality gas grill that can let you expand your culinary creativity right in your backyard. Of course, it may also be a good idea to purchase a durable outdoor dining set, so you can enjoy your meals al fresco.
