ARE YOU REALLY MAKING USE OF YOUR OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING AREA?
Homeowners face many obstacles having an open patio or alfresco area, including pesky insects, wildlife and strays along with constant cleaning of air borne debris.
We tend to design houses with larger outdoor entertaining areas today but are we using that extra space to its full advantage?
A typical scenario is that we come home from a hard day’s work and decide to have a BBQ which is usually located in the patio area but after looking outside and seeing the mess created by leaves and dust along with the multiple bird droppings on the outdoor furniture we decide that it’s easier to eat inside, besides the mozzies are starting to come out now.
We still go outside to cook the BBQ with the chef the only person unfortunate enough to be exposed to the pests but the feeling of being outside after being in the office all day lessens the discomfort of the aerial attack.
A good fixed screening system with access doors will heavily reduce any maintenance whilst still maintaining the views and breeze, although these benefits can be altered by different density screens. Other benefits include keeping your pets in a controlled environment and pool safe screen barriers are also available.
Along with good controlled lighting and outdoor fans and heating you entertaining area can be an area of family fun all year around.
