Spending time outdoors is enjoyable, and something most Canadians look forward to as spring and summer approach. By adding a functional, beautiful outdoor living space to your yard, you can take advantage of those outdoor benefits whenever you feel like it. A firepit area, dining space, patio set up for lounging, and even an outdoor kitchen can all add to your quality of life at home.
Prelude Landscaping in Winnipeg shares some reasons why outdoor living spaces are so important:
You can extend your home’s living space.
Investing in professional landscaping can help you greatly extend your home’s living space. You can create a space for dining and cooking on the deck, a space for relaxing on a patio, and/or a hub for socializing around a fireplace. Your family will love having that extension of the home, and you can have it without an expensive home addition.
Being outside is good for us.
Spending time outdoors and in nature has widespread health benefits. Studies show it can improve memory, reduce stress, battle depression, lower blood pressure, boost your immune system, and even decrease your risk of cancer. Instead of going inside to watch television after a long week of work, spend that time in your own nature oasis, designed perfectly to give you a rejuvenating space close to home. It can include colourful flower beds, shrubs and trees, and even a relaxing water feature. Read more about why spending more time outside is healthy.
Landscaping will improve your home’s resale value.
A professional landscape design and installation can boost your home’s property value. According to HomeGuides, a well-landscaped home will be priced on the market higher compared to a home with no landscaping. The advantage, according to their data, ranges from 5.5 to 12.7% depending on the type of landscaping, the current market, and home’s value. What are buyers looking for?

You’ll utilize your entire property, more often.
Sadly, most homeowners don’t use their yard as much as they could – or even at all. Adding an outdoor living space will get you outside. This means you’ll reap the health benefits and will spend more quality time with your family as well. For those who like to garden, adding flower beds or garden boxes to your landscape design will give you more opportunities to do what you enjoy during the warmer months. You can even put a putting green in the yard and practice your golf game! As a homeowner, you own more than just what’s inside the four walls of your house. Extend your living space and start making enjoyable use of your entire property.
