How to Enjoy Your Yard in Oklahoma's Colder Months
It’s almost that time of year – the air is getting cooler, leaves will begin to change color, and soon it’ll be time to break out the pool cover and close down the pool for the year. Fall and winter can be beautiful seasons in Oklahoma, but their weather conditions can certainly limit your time outdoors.
However, there are several ways that you can enjoy your yard this fall and winter. Colder temperatures shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the outdoor extension of your home. From warm outdoor fireplaces to cozy outdoor lounges, there are plenty of options to add to your landscape to help your enjoy your time outdoors.
Warm up next to an outdoor fireplace.
Outdoor fireplaces are a rising trend in winter landscaping. They provide a warm, cozy gathering space in your yard during any season, but especially in the cooler months. Invite a group over, sit around the fire, and even make s’mores. There are multiple styles to choose from, too. Our Havenscapes team can help you choose and install one this fall or winter.
Kick back and relax in an outdoor lounge.
Pergolas and pavilions are great for all seasons, not just spring and summer. With a comfortable outdoor furniture set, you can turn your pavilion or pergola area into a cozy outdoor lounge, blankets and all! Outdoor lounges let you enjoy a conversation outside with hot cocoa and warm blankets in the comfort of your own backyard.
Sad about closing the pool? Get a hot tub!
Summer doesn’t have to be the only time to enjoy the water. Hot tubs and heated pools can be great alternatives if you don’t feel like closing up the pool this year. With a hot tub, you can enjoy being in the water even when it’s snowing outside. Our friends at Blue Haven can help you choose and install your dream hot tub.
Enjoy the look of outdoor lighting.
Christmas trees aren’t the only things that look beautiful lit up in cooler weather! Adding landscape lights to your landscape and trees not only look great in any season, they add a nice touch when the weather starts to get colder and the sun isn’t out as long.
