Outdoor living spaces have become a trend among homeowners, thanks to the benefits they bring, both for the homeowner and the property. Having an outdoor living space where you can relax, spend time with your family and host friends will make you more likely to hang out outdoors.
Here are the five of the most important components of an outdoor space to help you get the most out of it and create the space you want.
1. Deck or Patio
You can use a deck or patio as an outdoor dining area. Build it next to your home for a seamless indoor/outdoor connection. If your deck or patio is raised off the ground, you’ll need a balustrade. If you want to be able to put your glass down on the top rail, the rail should have a broad top.
Your furniture should serve a specific purpose, whether it’s creating a conversation pit, offering you a place to enjoy that first cup of coffee in the morning or providing seating for you to serve a seven-course meal to friends.
3. Fire Pits and Fireplaces
A custom-built outdoor fireplace is an investment that adds sophistication to your property, and our landscape design team can guide you through the process of creating an outdoor fireplace that suits your tastes and budget.
4. Outdoor Kitchens
Depending on how you want to entertain your guests, you could install a full-blown outdoor kitchen and bar, or simply have a portable grilling cart or BBQ and outdoor drink cooler. Whatever you choose, make sure to place them next to your deck or patio for easy in/out access.
Landscape lighting adds an element of warmth and safety to your living space. Lighting is also functional as it allows you to expand the use of your patio into the evenings. Lights can be incorporated into steps and seating walls or along the perimeter of your patio.
