Outdoor projects are a way to make your yard more functional and relevant for your outdoor living. To make the most out of your outdoor installations, we list 5 dual purpose outdoor structures you can have which will serve to both beautify your outdoors and serve its purpose.
Pergola as a Space-Defining Structure
A pergola can make an outdoor section of your yard more defined and separate from the rest of it. Depending on its architecture, a pergola can also serve as a patio cover and mark an outdoor living room where you and your family can lounge comfortably. By having a pergola installed, you are able to create a safe, intimate and comfortable area in your outdoors.
A Garden Wall and a Movie Screen
Painted in the right shade of white, a garden wall which primarily serves a security purpose can be transformed into a movie screen at night. Provided you have understanding neighbors and you can keep the sound down or close to the spectators instead of surround, you can have alfresco movie nights under the stars for a cozy and intimate gathering with your family and friends.
Low Boulders as Natural Rustic Seats
If you love landscaping with rocks and boulders, you might just save a lot on patio furniture by using boulders as seats. Boulders are a favorite design element for landscape artists for its visual appeal. A relatively flat top boulder can either be a seat or a table depending on the need. You can also re-arrange these boulders if you get tired of the layout. If you’re going for a low-cost, rustic outdoor design, then boulders can be design element you can consider.
Outdoor structures can easily meet other purposes with thoughtful design. If you are curious to find out more dual-purpose outdoor structures you can benefit from, call us today for a free, no-obligation consultation.
