Ideas For Your Backyard In The Winter!

Just because there’s snow on the ground and low temperatures outside, doesn’t mean that your backyard has to be ignored this Winter!

Here are a few ideas to heat up your outdoor living space, just in time for the holidays!

Outdoor Fireplace:

Bring on the heat! This is probably the easiest way to be able to enjoy the outdoors while staying cozy beside the fire! Other options include heat lamps or a simple fire pit!

Patio Roof

Imagine a nice cup of tea in the morning, sitting at your favourite patio set that you enjoy during the summer months! All you will need is a little roof cover to stop the snow and ice from falling – Can be used in the summer as well!

Cozy Chair Coverings & Accessories 

Keep warm by adding weather-resistant rugs, blankets and pillows to your patio set!

Colourful & Winter Blooming Plants

Flowers aren’t only for spring & summer! There are certain plants that bloom in the winter! Such as pansies, Japanese quince, dogwood and heather are all very popular!

Outdoor Grilling

Don’t let the snow stop you! Invite your friends over for a winter BBQ feast! Think hearty veggies and meats that will warm you right up!

Lighting

With shorter days and longer, cold nights – lighting is key! Think string lights, solar lights or even candles to brighten up your outdoor space!

Get Active Outdoors!

How fun is your very own skating rink?! Other ways to actively use your backyard space could be a sledding track, snowmen and snow angels… The list is endless and the kids will love it!

Condo Owners & Balcony Bylaws

Toronto’s high-rise residences are growing by the day – one of the only ways to have a piece of outdoor living is to have a balcony.

However, balconies can be a bit complicated when you’re looking to add decor, plants, furniture or any sort of appliance.

Here are a few important things to consider:

BBQ’s:

Nothing says summer like a barbecue gettogether! However, most often barbeques are illegal on balconies. Some residents are lucky to have a gas line built-in for a combustible model, while others may not be able to have a grill at all. Not only can propane present a huge fire, smoke, and smell hazard concern for neighbours, but there are also laws that specify how propane tanks can only be moved if a list of criteria is met. It’s also against the law to take them up main elevators!

Cement & Greenery:

Cold, grey stone isn’t exactly inviting, and although tiles and turf designed for outdoors may add warmth to an outdoor space, you will have to check with your condo’s board. A lot of condos have banned these additions due to fire risks from flying cigarette butts. Some buildings have even banned area rugs!

As for your green thumb, you may need to go easy. Although the majority of condos will allow plants, you will need to be mindful of the height and placement, also due to fire hazards. There may also be weight restrictions for large, dirt-filled planters and tall arrangements. Ceiling planters are almost never allowed, so container planting is usually the way to go!

Storage: 

A big complaint amongst downtown Toronto condos and management is the inability to keep bikes on balconies due to the dirt they track in through the unit. There is also a known issue with large stored items on balconies such as cardboard boxes, plastic bins, and shelving. Ensure you know the rules before counting on storing your items outside!

Advantage of Hiring a Full Service Brokerage vs a Discount One Hit Wonder

Back in August, a 4 bedroom home on Summeridge in the area of Sugarbush Heritage Park & 407 sold for $1,318,000. The home across the street, which was slightly smaller and less renovated, sold for approx. $1,120,000 through a discount brokerage. Meaning the seller saved $45k in commission, but sold their home for $198,000 less than 421 Summeridge.

With size and upgrades considered, the seller from across the street ended up losing $148,000 on the actual value that they should have gotten for the home vs. what a full-service brokerage could have gotten them.

421 Summeridge Dr., Vaughan, Ont.

Asking price: $1,329,000

Selling price: $1,318,000

Previous selling price: $438,153 (2005); $160,000 (2004)

Taxes: $6,347 (2019)

Days on the market: Six
