In the midst of enduring a cold winter, nothing gets us more excited than the anticipated changes that a warm Spring will soon bring. Just as nature has its changes of seasons, our lives seem to track in seasons as well, carrying us through young adulthood, parenting years, middle age, and our golden years.
Have you ever thought about the fact that the way we view and utilize our home landscape spaces often changes as we go through life’s version of seasonal changes? Using our home landscape for seasons of more intensive entertaining may call for large enough terrace spaces that can handle it, along with perhaps an outdoor kitchen or pavilion. Parents with young children soon approaching teen years sometimes consider adding a custom designed swimming pool to promote family activities and peer gatherings at home. When
you get beyond that season and find the need to move to a more manageable downsized home with less maintenance, then perhaps smaller, more intimate outdoor spaces may provide what is most enjoyed. Aahh…, I can hear the soothing sounds of a water feature!
We at Kane Landscapes, Inc. welcome the opportunity to sit down with you to listen to your needs and develop a vision for your landscape that is most suitable for whatever season of life you are currently enjoying.
