Winter-Ready Tips for Outdoor Living Spaces

Winter-ready backyard patio

Making sure your outdoor living area is winter-ready may not seem like that big of a deal when living in the south, but in fact, it’s incredibly important for protecting the value of your home.
1) Make sure your heating units are in working order. Your outdoor patio won’t be enjoyable if there are not heating units to keep you warm. Call a professional to check on your furnace or outdoor heaters to make sure they are working properly. It’s also wise to make sure the pipes inside your house are working properly because any outdoor installations that involve water (i.e. hot tubs or outdoor sinks) could cause problems if your pipes freeze over.
2) Make sure that there are no gaps or holes in your patio walls. Your enclosed patio space should be well insulated and while this may seem like a troublesome task for homeowners but with professional help it’s as easy as pie. Ask your outdoor construction designer the best way to insulate windows and outdoor living areas. Sometimes the problems can be easily fixed by the homeowner themselves but other times you may need a professional’s hand.
3) Install a fire pit in lieu of having a man-made fire. While you may think you’re ready to get your Fire Scout badge, many wild fires start from poorly extinguished outside fires created by humans. Fire pits are a smart and efficient way to enjoy an outdoor fire without the risk of burning your landscape or even your house down.
4) Garden protection is a key rule when prepping your outdoor landscape to be winter-ready. The sudden cold snaps can wreck havoc on a garden area so it’s best to make sure your garden area is protected. Have your landscape designer pull up annuals and install an insulated flower bed to make sure any flora or vegetation left in the ground survives the harsh winter cold.

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

    Patrice & David Alpharetta, GA

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”

    Christy A. Sandy Springs, GA

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”

    Larry S. Atlanta, GA

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”

    Amy & Joe Roswell, GA

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”
