Harold Leidner Talks Outdoor Living

Stunning outdoor living areas create an ideal backyard spot for dining al fresco, lounging poolside, enjoying conversations and cocktails, or indulging in quiet time. The layout and features of an outdoor space are as unique as any home, however each one shares a common thread: they were created to be comfortable, functional, relaxing retreats that bring the indoors out.

 

In the brand-new summer edition of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living magazine, the luxury home publication of the Ebby Halliday Companies, we sat down with renowned landscape architect Harold Leidner to learn about current trends in outdoor living, and how to design the perfect space. Leidner’s comments offer insight into how landscaping and outdoor amenities will often distinguish a property from others and allow it to sell faster.

 

GV: In your opinion, what does the perfect outdoor living space include?

 

HL: Whether it is a simple patio for outdoor dining or an elaborate pool and cabana, if it attracts friends and family it will likely be considered a great space and will add value to your property. Sure bets for Texas would be a shade structure with an outdoor kitchen and dining area adjacent to a luxury pool with mature planting and trees.

 

GV: What tips do you have for someone designing an outdoor living space?

 

HL: We would suggest taking a realistic look at your lifestyle and how you would like to use the garden and outdoor space. Find the things that will draw you and your family into the outdoors for both active and relaxing times.
