Love your landscape but want something more? Or, maybe the design is beautiful but doesn’t beckon your family to the great outdoors? Perhaps then it is time to consider an enhancement project. Accent your landscape with any of these ideas to create an attractive and functional outdoor space.
Fire pits and Fireplaces
Outdoor fire pits and fireplaces can bring a sense of sophistication and fun to any backyard. Diverse in style, they are easy additions to pre-existing decks, porches, outdoor living spaces, or as a stand-alone project. Fire pits and fireplaces can be installed with a traditional wood burning design, as gas fueled, or electric allowing you total control over size and intensity of the flame. The self-contained design provides safety while allowing your family to enjoy the relaxing ambiance of open flame, perhaps while roasting marshmallows for s’mores?
Turn any landscape or yard into a private oasis with the addition for a water feature. Water features come in a variety of sizes and styles to fit any size yard, landscape, or budget. Ponds, pools, fountains, water walls, rain curtains, modern, traditional, Avant Garde – the possibilities are endless! Water features promote relaxation and can decrease stress through their soothing sounds and serene beauty. They also attract beneficial wildlife and can decrease unwanted noise pollution. No matter the size or complexity of the water feature, it will add a unique and relaxing feel to your backyard.
As we’ve mentioned in previous blogs, landscape lighting is an excellent accent and increases home safety. Strategically placed lights can highlight interesting architectural or landscape design features, create additional depth and intrigue, while illuminating driveways, sidewalls, and other pathways. Landscape lighting bulbs are available in a variety of hues, colors, and sizes to fit pre-existing fixtures and compliment your home and landscape design. They can be added, or retrofitted, to create curb appeal and make a memorable first impression. Landscape lights are also the perfect way to enjoy your yard well into the night by creating bright and inviting outdoor entertainment spaces.
Perhaps the easiest way to spruce up a property is through the addition of seasonal plants. Each season offers its own, unique additions that can keep flowerbeds and landscapes feeling fresh and new year-round. From annuals to mums to poinsettias and holiday greenery, seasonal color and plants are a budget friendly way to naturally enhance the beauty of your landscape.
