With spring just around the corner, many living on Lake Nacimiento are beginning to think about their homes’ outdoor living space. Residents of Oak Shores and Heritage Ranch understand that life on Lake Nacimiento involves spending a lot of time outside when the weather begins to warm up!
Whether you live in a waterfront home on Lake Nacimiento or your Oak Shores or Heritage Ranch home is set back from the lake; you’ll enjoy having an outdoor living space that allows you to soak in the fresh air, beautiful scenery and time with friends and family. Creating this outdoor space can be as extravagant or as cost effective as you want! There’s no need to go overboard with major updates, but enhancing an outdoor area can be as simple as making a few changes to bring an intentional purpose to an already existing space.
Below are the three key elements you’ll want to be sure to incorporate for a relaxing and useful outdoor living area!
1. Fire– According to a recent national survey, landscape designer Michael Glassman, noted that the #1 request for an outdoor space is a kitchen. While designing and installing an entire outdoor kitchen can be very costly, there are other ways to get this same feel. Make an outdoor fire-pit, purchase a potbelly stove, or just use your charcoal grill. On cooler Lake Nacimiento evenings, roast marshmallows or cozy up by candlelight and a hot cup of tea. No matter your budget or size of your outdoor space, you’ll be able to find a way to creatively incorporate fire!
2. Water– The sound of trickling water always seems to have a calming effect. If you’re not close enough to hear the lapping water reaching the Lake Nacimiento shore; there are other options for creating the serene water effect. A simple tabletop fountain or a pond or stream beside your patio or deck will bring the essence of tranquility and quiet to your outdoor living area. Just be sure to utilize the water you want in your space and keep out the water you don’t! A rainy day can put a damper on your outdoor activities, but having an awning or gazebo with naturally growing vines can offer the protection you need from a passing shower.
3. Earth– Since this is an outdoor room, be sure to include as many earth tones and natural objects as possible in your design. You want to maintain that outdoor feel instead of simply mimicking an interior space. Use things like rocks, branches or wooden objects or furniture to add interest. Of course the changing seasons will be the backdrop of your outdoor room, so be sure to play off the colors and vibrancy of the Lake Nacimiento season.
I’m sure we can all sense the growing excitement for spring on Lake Nacimiento and are anxious for all of the warm weather activities that Lake Nacimiento has to offer! I hope these ideas give you the added boost to create your own outdoor sanctuary.
