Column: What’s your plan for luxurious outdoor living this year?


I suppose we all have our personal definitions of both luxurious and outdoor living. For our family, it means anything outdoors but, predominantly nesting and entertaining around the deliciously landscaped back yard patios and built in grill station. Almost nightly, it’s fresh-air dining under the pergola, as the wind chimes echo and the music de-jour sets the tone. Bright and comfortably cushioned patio furniture makes prolonged lingering both elegant and natural, often past dark.

Vacations are planned, problems minimized, girls talk, laughter erupts, neighbors stop by and life happens. Who needs TV?

What’s your definition?


Pause … and think about how you want to live in 2015. What emotional connection, element or set of experiences would you prefer to encourage? Hope to see the kids studying or reading a book under a patio umbrella? Would you dig an occasional fire to warm the spirits and spark the mood?

Does your grill need new burners and a stainless steel shine or built into a counter for prep? Ever dreamed of a hot tub to soothe frazzled nerves or ease muscle fatigue? And, the recent most compelling issues: shade and privacy. Need some?


Here’s what we know…a few minor changes to your outdoor space can make a HUGE difference in levels of enjoyment, appreciation and how you live. Tired decks and patios can be rescued, landscapes freshened, furniture cleaned and restored with fresh cushions. The options are limited only by budget, imagination and what crazy things we’ve seen on HGTV or HOUZZ. Or, design and build something big, new and dreamy!

Create your very own definition of luxurious outdoor living. And then do it!
