Not only do outdoor kitchens serve as incredible party hosting companions, but they also increase your property value.

Whether you are building your outdoor kitchen from scratch or you are thinking of ways to upgrade your current one, we can help! The following amenities are perfect additions to your outdoor kitchen and will make summertime that much sweeter!

During the colder winter months, plants in this category go dormant, but they grow out in spring to go through their seasonal bloom.

Annuals only live for one season, and you have to replant them every year. Because perennials grow back every spring, you don’t have to replant them, making them a great addition if you prefer consistency. However, if you like to change your garden and try different looks, annual plants are best.

Blooming Period

Annual plants’ lifespan only lasts for a season, but they have a long bloom season. Perennials bloom during the growing season at specific times, but their blooming period is generally shorter than that of annuals.
