Expanding living space beyond the four walls of your home and enjoying more seasons outdoors, is why homeowners are starting to add outdoor living rooms to their homes. According to Toronto landscape designer, Jennifer Hayman, "Homeowners want to make better use of their backyards while accommodating the needs of their growing families"

Here are some the latest trends and landscaping ideas in creating outdoor spaces.

--- Transforming outdoor living spaces by turning a neglected garage into an outdoor living room. With a roof over head, add lounge chairs, a coffee table, a chandelier, electric heaters and a fireplace. That's entertainment! Or create an outdoor home office.

--- Creating a children's play area by adding a multi-sport surface. Good for basketball, hockey and Peace of Mind!

--- Creating stone pathways to separate the garden into different areas using a mix of pea gravel and textured stone. Very elegant. Very European. Want an urban look? Add metal dividers.

Go for Colour & Textures

--- Anything bold and striking is big this summer. Try bold coloured flowers such as purple and red to up the vibrancy factor in your outdoor space.

--- Indigenous fieldstone and native plants with big and bold random fieldstone gives a garden texture and shape, while providing for an eco-friendly and low maintenance garden.
