    Landscaping Ideas for Football Season Kickoff

    Do you wish you had an outdoor living space to enjoy the fall weather? Imagine a space where you could enjoy the weather and watch football. It’s not a fantasy. At Hittle Landscaping, we transform landscaping ideas and dreams into extraordinary reality every day.

    Consider Flow in Your Landscaping Ideas

    When bringing the “indoors out,” it’s important to create a flow from the indoor space to the outdoor living space. You may not have noticed the flow of your home before, but chances are you noticed it when it was missing. Toured a home or visited a property where a space felt “tacked on,” or an afterthought? Thoughtful design can eliminate these misfires.

    Transitional Spaces

    Most homes extend the living space using a deck or patio as the avenue. To make the most of the transition, here are some design landscaping ideas:

    • Echo the indoor space in the outdoor space in the color palette or design elements.
    • Create a seamless effect by using the same or similar weather-appropriate flooring in color or style.
    • Choose furniture and planters with an indoor sensibility. More designers are creating outdoor furniture with durable and fashionable fabrics. Gone are the obvious patio-looking benches. Now there are all-weather sofas and other indoor-reminiscent options. Rather than traditional terracotta, select colorful planters to mimic artist-made pottery or weather-resistant wicker.
    • Consider the items you use indoors and bring them out. Think task lighting, side tables for morning coffee or afternoon lemonade and artwork.  

    Host a Football Watching Party People Plan Around

    We love football in Indiana. We’re a sports-loving state. Show your fandom when you host football watching parties for friends and neighbors in your outdoor space. They’ll love spending time in your outdoor viewing area.

    Heat it up with space heaters or weather-reactive underfoot heating for chilly evenings. How about a cozy fireplace? Cool down the afternoon games with ceiling fans. Bring kitchen elements into the space for ease and ultimate hospitality.

    Our landscaping ideas include more than a built-in grill and refrigerator. Mix up a blender of your squad’s favorite drink or use a wine fridge to chill your homebrew.

    When we consult with a client we listen to any and all of your landscaping ideas. We apply our expertise and bring you a design with your requests and usually a few surprises. We make sure you have a plan with the correct number of weatherproof outlets, for example.

    If football-watching is a dream, we’ll include trees or remote-controlled shades to prevent a glare on the television. We make sure there’s room to expand, too! After all, your parties are likely to grow in popularity!
