Remembering the many wonderful times my family shared together outside around a roaring fire even when it wasn’t that cold or enjoying a beverage or grilling out with friends on the patio, our home always seemed to include everyday living on the outside. Those special memories surely shaped our purpose in the way we wanted to help others in creating treasured areas of outdoor living for their home when we started Father Nature Landscapes several years ago.
When thinking about how to create the sense of home, I went to Wikipedia for its definition. In short, it defines home as a place meant to give shelter to daily living ranging from eating, sleeping, and entertaining friends. It also suggests that home is a mental or emotional state of refuge or comfort. Our purpose for landscaping is centered around all of these necessities.
Instead of considering landscaping as something separate or in addition to your interior living spaces; why not consider it a continuation of that space into the natural, native terrain with lush plantings, water features or intimate areas for relaxation. It simply expands our living space for morning coffee, romantic dinners, or afternoon cocktails in the garden! It really makes sense to embrace this fresh and healthy way of purposeful living.
