The Benefits of a Custom Outdoor Living Space

If you’re still trying to decide whether or not to take the plunge into turning your dream outdoor living space into a reality, you’re not alone. Custom backyards are not cheap, and it can be easy to think of reasons not to do it. However, after so many years in this industry, one thing has become apparent to us at Water and Earth. A custom door living space is worth every penny.

When people think about reasons to hire a landscape design team, they’re usually thinking most about the immediate benefits–the way it will look, and how fun it will be to use when all is said and done. While those aspects are true, the benefits to investing in a custom backyard are even more far reaching and highly impactful. Not only are you making an investment in your day to day quality of life, but you are also making an investment in the value of your property for years to come.

Let’s talk about some of the top benefits of investing in a custom outdoor living space from Water and Earth.

Increased ROI

Investing in a custom outdoor living space goes beyond mere enhancement. An investment in your outdoor living space is an investment in the future valuation of your home. Potential buyers view a well-designed backyard as a significant asset, one that can tip the scales in favor of your property when it comes time to sell. What you allocate to your backyard living space today is an investment that is poised to yield substantial returns down the road.

By building a beautiful backyard, you're not only increasing the initial buyer appeal of your property but also boosting its overall market value. This means that you can potentially recoup the initial costs and then some when it's time for you and your family to move on. The real estate market continues to be competitive. A thoughtfully crafted outdoor living space can set your home apart and command a higher price. So, while you'll undoubtedly enjoy the immediate benefits of an enhanced outdoor space, the lasting impact it can have on your home's resale value makes it a wise investment in your financial future.

Quality of Life.

A custom backyard space can have a real, tangible impact on your day-to-day quality of life. It offers a versatile space where you can enjoy cookouts, campfires, pool parties, or simply relax and get some fresh air. This enhanced outdoor space provides room for entertaining guests, allows children and pets to play freely, and turns your property into an active part of your daily routine.

These experiences become part of your daily life, and are not just reserved for special occasions . A custom backyard seamlessly blends outdoor living into your daily routine. In essence, it's not just an improvement to your home but an investment that enhances your overall quality of life, offering you a chance to enjoy the outdoors every day without ever leaving home.

Increase Livable Space

You paid for your backyard–why not make the most of it? A custom outdoor living space can increase your livable square footage drastically, so you get the most out of the land that you paid to own. Your backyard has the potential to become an extension of your indoor living space, seamlessly blending the boundaries between your home and the outdoors. It can evolve into a versatile area where you can dine, lounge, work, or play. All of this without the hassle or impracticality of adding an addition to your existing home.

Make The Most of Every Season.

Love a fall bonfire but hate the hassle of rickety, wood burning fire pits? Wish you could enjoy the sound of the rain without getting soaked? Miss laying out by the pool but hate dealing with the crowds? Custom outdoor living brings the best of every season to your backyard, allowing you to take full advantage of all kinds of weather.

Pergolas provide shelter from rain, while a custom fire pit extends your window for enjoying the outdoors well into fall. Beautiful landscaping means that you can enjoy spring blooms from native plantings and turning foliage all from the comfort of your own home. In the summer, a custom pool and spa turn your home into a neighborhood destination, and give kids and adults alike a way to enjoy even the hottest of weather.
