How to Prep Your Miami Backyard for an Unforgettable Event

Posted on: July 23, 2016

Miami’s agreeable year round temperatures are conducive to outdoor living, providing the ideal setting for open air gatherings with friends, family, and colleagues. Regardless of the scope or nature of your backyard event, preparation—including backyard landscaping—is the key to its success. No one is more qualified to assist with the planning, preparation, and execution of a flawless backyard celebration, than the experts at Habify

Key Elements for an Outstanding Backyard Event in Miami

Incorporating clean, modern, eco-friendly elements, such as those listed below, as part of your backyard landscaping and design, is a brilliant way to achieve the look and feel you desire, while maximizing your investment.


Daytime, or early evening event planning should include provisions for shade, to give guests the option of a reprieve from the sun. This can be achieved with a combination of skillful backyard landscaping, and the addition of a trellis or pergola. Strategically planted trees and shrubs can also help save on cooling costs throughout the year, increasing the energy efficiency of your home.


A backyard pool provides homeowners and their guests a place to relax and have fun, but it’s also an important element in backyard design. Every component, from your choice of deck, or patio tile, to furnishings, is a reflection of your taste, and style, and should be carefully considered, using eco-friendly materials to reduce your carbon footprint, when possible.


Nothing sets the mood for your backyard event better than lighting. Wall lighting, ceiling mounted fixtures, post lights, and landscape lighting, give you the opportunity to carry on well in to the evening, providing safe navigation, and adding an element of warmth and functionality. Thanks to smart home technology, lighting can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet, while solar powered options harness the power of the sun to reduce energy usage.


Professional landscape design is a must, to ensure your outdoor space reaches its full potential on every level, from beauty, to practicality. Prepping your Miami backyard landscaping for your event should include the addition of elements to provide privacy, shade, beauty, and visual interest, with an eye towards native plantings for ease of maintenance, and energy efficiency. Tip: Position drought tolerant plants closest to your home to reduce humidity, and thirstier specimens further away.


Outdoor prep and serving space is a must have for any Miami backyard, as an alternative to cooking indoors. Smart design maximizes efficiency, storage, and workflow, to make the most of this functional element.


No backyard event is complete without music. Incorporating the latest, high tech, outdoor speakers as part of your backyard landscaping plan, is a great way to set the mood, and entertain your guests. Speakers can be carefully concealed among greenery, mounted on walls, or even affixed to trees, and can withstand all types of weather.
