Help Dad Create His Own Outdoor Oasis This Summer!
Create you own, unique outdoor living oasis!
Father’s Day is a time to celebrate all of the great things that Dad does for us. From teaching us how to change a tire to walking us down the aisle, Dad works hard to help provide a loving home. Does your family have any Father’s Day traditions? One of the most popular ones in the US is getting outside and grilling! There’s something about lighting up the BBQ grill with dad and enjoying perfectly grilled burgers, dogs, and veggies! Whether large or small, a backyard BBQ is one of the best ways to celebrate Father’s Day and show some appreciation. If your dad is looking to do something special for himself this year, adding to his outdoor space may be the way to go. Below are some things he should consider before jumping into a project to expand that backyard into an outdoor oasis!
Designing an Outdoor Oasis
When designing an outdoor space, one of the biggest considerations is how it fits your lifestyle. You want it to blend seamlessly with the house – consider the outdoor space an extension of the home. Your family home is a place to welcome family, friends, and neighbors. A great way to help seamlessly transition from indoor to outdoor space is to add on a screened-porch. With the current threat of Zika virus from mosquitos and the ever present hot Maryland sun in the summer, it’s nice to have a half indoor/half outdoor space to enjoy some fresh air in the summer months. This transitional space is a great place to add some great patio furniture and professional lighting, too.
Show Dad love and appreciation with a versatile outdoor kitchen.
Adding an Outdoor Kitchen
What better way for Dad to grill than with an outdoor kitchen? Having some extra counter space outside makes it easy to grill up Father’s Day fare. Even better, there’s more room for the kids to jump in and help without having to run in and out of the house a million times. An outdoor kitchen with an open fire and grill is a great place to entertain, and provides an area that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing for guests. If you know your dad is planning on expanding into an outdoor kitchen, you may want to recommend a pizza oven as well – you can’t go wrong with Dad’s homemade pizza when you visit!

Outdoor Lighting and Fire Pits
The beauty of Maryland nights is that they cool off enough to make the outdoors comfortable! Talk to dad about making the outdoor area a functional place to spend your evenings as well. Lighting up walkways, the screened in porch, and even the outdoor kitchen adds a level of depth, security, and safety that transform an outdoor space to accommodate family and friends at all times. If your dad has neighbors to worry about, there are also some great non-obtrusive lighting options that will keep both him and next-door-Ned happy. Another way to introduce both light and warmth into your outdoor space is to install a fire pit. These can bring warmth both physically and emotionally. Summer is all about making s’mores with family after all, right? With added furniture or ornaments and storage space from sites like gardensite turning his little outdoor living area to be of much more use.
