With the gorgeous summer weather, it’s natural to want to spend more time outside. Get inspired for your outdoor spaces so you can maximize the room you have as well as your entertainment potential. From front porch ideas to deck decorations to landscape plans, here are some ideas to kick off your summer fun at The Reserve at Creekside.

Here are a few ideas to help you put a personal touch on your outdoor spaces.

Front Porch

Your front porch is your chance to make an unforgettable first impression on your guests. Showcase your style whether it’s modern, rustic, or traditional – here are a few elements you can incorporate into your front porch décor to impress your friends and families.

For a rustic style, mix elements of the indoors and the outdoors with your front porch style. Select wood-inspired chairs, mixed with cozy quilts and pillows and matched with a modern lamp, such as a Tiffany lamp – pictured here. For more of a classic style, hanging baskets filled with ferns along with hanging or freestanding lanterns can frame your entry way, while adding some lush color to your front porch. Add a rocking chair and a brightly colored seat cushion for a welcoming addition to your home.

Back Deck

Enjoy some fresh air on your back deck with a glass of wine or entertain some of your friends for a summer cookout! Get creative and add a small bar to the deck, where you can whip up margaritas in the summer.  Or if you’re more into relaxing and reading then add a calming water feature off to the side and plenty of greenery to make your deck your Zen place, as suggested by Better Homes and Gardens.


Adorn the outside of your home with gorgeous greens that are low-maintenance and sustainable, consult a local landscaper for recommendations on native plants. Native plants thrive in climate conditions, so you can work less to enjoy the outdoors more. If you’re looking to add a pop of color, add a few potted plants to your front walkway – you can start with whites and pinks in the summer and switch to yellows and reds in the fall.

Whatever outdoor style fits your personality, you can make it yours with one of our 8 home plans at Reserve at Creekside. Kick off summer the right way, with a beautiful new home in Flourtown, PA.
