The options for elevated outdoor living just keep getting better. If you’re looking to upgrade your outdoor living experience or need to create a new outdoor living area, here are a few suggestions for an inviting and functional space.

Outdoor Furniture
Comfortable outdoor seating is essential for creating a welcoming and relaxing outdoor space. As you add sofas, chairs, or a dining set to your landscape, you’ll have many options to consider for color, design, durability and comfort. Choose what fits best for your lifestyle. Consider how often you’ll use the furniture, how weather proof it may be, whether it will need to be covered, and whether it will be free standing or built in to the hardscape of your space.

Fire Features
A fire pit is a great addition to any landscape. It provides warmth and light during chilly evenings, and is also a great gathering spot for friends and family. Fire features can be built in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be made with materials that complement the design of your landscape. It can even be a pizza oven!

Outdoor Kitchens
A full-featured outdoor kitchen can take your outdoor living to the next level. Gourmet outdoor appliances like grills, sinks, coolers and ovens are durable, stylish and allow you to enjoy a functional and beautiful cooking area. Create a seamless flow between your indoor and outdoor living spaces.

Water Features
A water feature can add both visual interest and the calming sound and feel of water to your landscape. Consider a bubbling fountain, a splashy custom pool, or a soothing spa to enhance your outdoor space. Be sure it’s designed to blend seamlessly into the surrounding landscape and customized to match your personal style.

Outdoor lighting can help to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, as well as provide necessary illumination for safety. Consider adding lights along pathways, around outdoor seating areas, and in trees or shrubs. This feature will enhance the beauty of your outdoor space, and allow you to enjoy your landscape areas well into the night.
