When the weather is warm, it is important that luxury homeowners have a backyard suitable for entertaining — whether it is to host an intimate family gathering or a large celebration with friends.

With spring in full force, it’s time to say hello to outdoor picnics, long days spent in the pool, and family barbecues.

In order to refresh your backyard in time for spring, we explore a few quick tips that will help your space to feel both luxurious, yet livable.

Seating

Whether it is a complete outdoor living room and a full-service kitchen, or a small table with chairs and an arrangement of delicate metal benches, ample outdoor seating is a must-have.
