No matter if you’re cooking, exercising, or just hanging out, if you’ve been spending more time outside this year, an outdoor extension of your home can help. There’s no need to go to a crowded venue to have fun when you can have fun right at home in your backyard. It’s also never too late to implement some of these five outdoor living trends. 

1. Edible Gardens

Staying on the topic of food, more people are planting edible plants. Planting things like fruits, vegetables, and herbs will allow you to stock your home with fresh, organic ingredients. Not only will these plants look good, but they’re also healthy for you once consumed. You can give your immune system a much-needed boost by planting an edible garden. 


2. Social Front Yard

Front yards used to only be for curb appeal, but now homeowners are transforming their front yards into a place of gathering. You can make your front yard by adding benches, bistro tables, a tree swing, and more! The possibilities are endless, and it’s up to you how you want to make your front yard be more of a social place.


3. Outdoor Kitchen

Skip the restaurant and eat at home with the help of a new outdoor kitchen. You can cook your favorite meals while enjoying the outdoors. An outdoor kitchen allows you to add additional cooking elements, like grills and pizza ovens, to supplement your main interior kitchen. The best part is that an outdoor kitchen is a perfect space to entertain guests throughout the warm months. 


4. More Privacy

Since a lot of us are spending more time at home, it’s no wonder why people want more privacy. If you’re tired of always being within view of your nosey neighbors, you can build a structure that gives you more privacy. There are plenty of ways you can add privacy, including trees, fences, and shrubs. You can talk to a deck company in Owings Mills about creative ways to make your outdoor living spaces more private.


5. Outdoor Technology 

As more people have moved from inside the home to outside they’ve found unique ways to bring their technology with them. People have been looking for unique ways to incorporate the technology they use indoors, outdoors. This includes things like creating an outdoor theatre or an outdoor office.
