Outdoor Living Year-Round.

The backyard has become another room for many people in New Jersey. The outdoor season can be extended by adding a fireplace, kitchen or hot tub.

Peter Liberatore of Bednar Landscape Service in Boonton says “Outdoor living is not just for the summer anymore. If done correctly, your outdoor space can be utilized throughout the four seasons and last many, many years providing lots of great memories.”

When designing your outdoor space, here are some items to think about:

• Make sure an outdoor kitchen is functional in the space you have

• Running water in the kitchen is essential, but must be turned off in winter

• Consider if you want hard wired natural gas or propane tanks for your cooking needs

• Make sure you have enough electrical outlets for your needs

• Consider if you want your fireplace incorporated into the kitchen or as a stand-alone fire pit

• There are many different stones and prefabricated materials to chose from; pick the one that suits your lifestyle best

• A hot tub or spa can be a great way to relax all year round          Click here to read more:
