Today, the layout options for your new patio are endless, fueled by the many different colors and textures available from paver manufacturers such as Unilock. Creating an eye-catching, truly useful extensions of your home is not only possible, it’s become extremely popular with Hudson Valley homeowners. Because of the beautifully distinct seasons we have here in NY, creating individual outdoor rooms that best utilize the changing weather is a great approach to enjoying your home to the fullest. Let’s have a look at the popular hot-spots of an outdoor living design based on the season.
Grilling in the Refreshing Spring Time Air
Are you a fan of grilling? It may be time to consider an outdoor kitchen and dining area that is perfect for getting rid of the winter blues. Creative outdoor kitchen layouts can provide you and your guests with a spot to slowly smoke a pork shoulder, grill veggies on the gas grill, and keep the beverages cold all day long in your outdoor fridge. Because the hot weather of the summer hasn’t arrived yet, hanging out in your outdoor kitchen for hours is comfortable and fun.

Sitting Poolside in the Summer Sun
When the hot summer sun arrives, there’s no better time to take a dip in your inground swimming pool. Sitting poolside in the hottest months of the year can offer a resort-like escape every weekend of the summer. If your property allows, locating the other outdoor rooms near by to the pool will ensure your family and friends can use all areas easily. Include an outdoor lighting system that illuminates your swimming pool area so that you can enjoy your outdoor spaces in the evenings after work as well.
Cozy Up Fireside as the Chilly Air Sets In
If autumn is your favorite season, a well-built fire pit could be just the feature to close out your outdoor living season. Cuddling up to the smell of wood smoke on a crisp autumn evening as you enjoy the sunset. . .what a relaxing picture! With the help of the right landscape designer, a more elaborate outdoor fireplace design can feature an elevated hearth and custom paver inlays as the “rug” in front of the flames. If burning actual wood isn’t your thing, outdoor fireplaces and fire pits can now be gas-fueled. Hook-up the fire feature to your smart home app on your iPhone and get on-demand fire starting with the push of a button. Now that’s the best way to enjoy the chilly air of fall right in your Dutchess County backyard.
