Have the best yard in the neighborhood
May 22, 2019
It's that time of year when the weather warms up, the kids are out of school, and we start spending more time outside. Here at Ideal Homes, we work hard to give you a great neighborhood and beautiful home. We know that you want to enjoy your home both inside and out. Here are a few tips for making your outdoor space a place where all your friends and family want to hang out. Outdoor Living Space - When we're designing our homes, we're always thinking about how people really use their homes. More and more people are creating an outdoor oasis that serves as an extension of their home. Whether it's a back patio with an outdoor fireplace or a beautiful front porch, complete with a place to sit and hang out, homeowners want more space for relaxing, entertaining and spending time with others. Our New Home Consultants can help you choose a plan that will meet your desires. Then, you get the chance to make it your own by adding beautiful seating, functional dining furniture, rugs, and accessories to make it your own. Sod - Your lawn can be easy to neglect when you get busy, but it's one of the most important parts of making your outdoor space beautiful. Here in Oklahoma, one of the biggest tips is making sure it's getting plenty of water (especially if it's new sod). The best time to water is early in the morning or late in the evening. Try to avoid watering in the hottest part of the day. Landscaping - This time of year is great for cleaning out your flowerbeds and adding new annuals and perennials. Be sure to do some research on what works best for the bed's soil and light quality. Don't forget to add some color to your landscaping to give your home extra curb appeal.
