When people call in looking to create an outdoor space, we ask them what they envision or are looking for within the new space. Some already have plans and know exactly what they want while others have no idea. Next question a lot of times will be what do you like and dislike about your current space? This will often give the client a chance not to be overwhelmed by the possibilities and allows them to channel in on specifics. DON’T LET THE SOMETIMES OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF OPTIONS KEEP YOU FROM MOVING FORWARD if you need to call and consult with a designer or use a company that specializes in the design aspect not only the construction of the project.

Your patio space should be an extension of the house – furnished and functional. More than anything, it should be a space that’s designed to fit your needs. This allows you to get out and enjoy the outdoors effortlessly.

Having a cover over your space allows for more useable time throughout the year no matter the weather conditions and can make it feel as if it’s just another room in the home. Sometimes a good balance of covered as well as uncovered patio space is the answer – just ensure you’re investing in a vision that’s going to fit your family’s needs the best.

Also, putting in a side burner, extra storage, or even a fridge can all add to the usability and convenience of the space. You don’t have to go massive, super luxurious, or over the top with it – just build to suit your needs.

Whether it be some taller landscape that creates a screen wall, a simple curtain and rod set up that you can pull back-and-forth as needed, or some remote solar screens that offer UV as well as bug control, creating that element of privacy and really finishing the space off, can make all the difference when your home and trying to unplug.

Fireplaces, fountains, fire pits, and other features won’t only set your space apart from others but will also provide some function to your outdoor living. Adding features to your patio space not only creates exciting destinations but also brings people together enabling you to enjoy the space that much more.

Once you’ve got your patio footprint together, it’s always important to balance your hard space with a combination of turf and landscape areas. Much like the patio itself, landscaping could definitely be a do-it-yourself task, but sometimes design and installation are better left to be thought through by a local professional.
