Impress Your Friends With Your New Backyard Living Space
With lockdowns starting to loosen, and regulations regarding COVID-19 starting to dwindle, you may be considering opening up your home to friends and family again. If having people inside your home still makes you feel a little uneasy, hosting in your backyard can be a great alternative. The Firebird specializes in turning your backyard into a fantastic hosting area, where you can cook, lounge in the sun, enjoy a fire, and enjoy the presence of your company. Let’s run down the list, and make sure your yard is ready to host like a pro.
Anyone who barbecues frequently knows of the complications of grilling outdoors. If your grill is in the sun, it can be fairly uncomfortable to cook a meal suitable for a large group. Also, a lack of prep space around your grill can lead to several trips in and out of the house for supplies. Let’s not forget that poor weather can shut down your grilling plans before they even start.
If these are issues that you’ve complained about before, an outdoor kitchen may be perfect for you. Outdoor kitchens can be custom built to fit your current grill (or a new one) and be supplemented with drawers, cabinets, counter space (which can double as a serving space for your guests), or even room for a mini-fridge if you so choose. Having a space like this will give you a grilling experience like no other, and give your friends a reason to stay outside to enjoy your new outdoor addition.
For an outdoor kitchen that is truly one-of-a-kind, consider including one of our Alpha Ovens. These ovens come in either a wood or gas setup, and are extremely versatile, allowing you to cook pizza, bake bread, or even attempt some desserts if you’re in the mood. Adding a piece like this can turn your backyard kitchen into an outdoor oasis. Fair warning, you may never want to cook in your indoor kitchen again.
No backyard would be complete without a great outdoor fireplace. The Firebird carries several brands of fireplaces that are specifically designed to be left outside all year round. We have specifically selected outdoor fireplaces that are designed to look great against our desert landscape and will fit in perfectly against your New Mexico-styled home.
One issue that we all experienced with a typical basin-style fireplace is smoke. If you have guests circling one of these fireplaces, whoever is unfortunate enough to sit downwind will not enjoy the experience. Our outdoor fireplaces are specifically designed to send smoke upward, away from you and your guests, giving you a more enjoyable campfire experience. If dealing with firewood and smoke is something you want to avoid altogether, consider one of our gas outdoor fireplace options.
If you need something more versatile than a fireplace, consider one of our fire tables. These gas-powered fireplaces are built into a beautiful tabletop design, perfect for serving drinks to your guests on a cool evening. We have several designs available and can help you select the perfect fire table for your needs.
Nothing makes your backyard more inviting than beautiful landscaping. If you are looking to take your yard to the next level while also finding a water-saving solution, drip irrigation is the answer for you. Like most sprinkler systems, drip irrigation can be fully automated, meaning you can spend less time watering your yard, and more time prepping dinner for your guests. Our drip irrigation experts can help you select the correct tubing, emitters, and supplemental additions to make your system a success. Visit our drip irrigation page to learn more.
Looking to build out our future offering, The Firebird has started carrying selected styles of patio furniture. We will be adding more to our selection in the future, as we find more fantastic products to offer our New Mexico customers. For more information regarding our patio furniture offering, stop by our new showroom and see what we have on display.
The Firebird has been serving Santa Fe and the Northern New Mexico community since 1977. Our purpose is to help our clients thrive with the elements, turning your home into a more enjoyable space to be enjoyed.
