Everyone needs a space to call their own, whether you use it to unwind after a long day, entertain friends and family, or play with your children. If you’re wondering where you could find that kind of space, look no further than your own backyard.
Before you can create the perfect outdoor oasis, you must first ask yourself some key questions to determine your needs.
• What do you want the space to do?
• How do you want to feel in the space?
• Do you want it to serve several functions … or just one?
We can help you bring your vision for your backyard to life, from the “big picture” right down to the tiny details.
Consider how you want to use your outdoor space and what you want it to achieve for you. For example, let’s say you want to feel peaceful and relaxed in your backyard. What helps you feel that way? Is it hearing certain sounds, such as a waterfall, or watching different types of wildlife, such as butterflies or birds? We help you figure out what you need to create your ideal space and choose the best outdoor elements to complement it.
Also, think about if you want the space to be single use or multi purpose? We can create the right environment for your all of your needs through outdoor “rooms.” For example, we can create a serenity garden that allows you to relax, while building a separate space such as an outdoor kitchen and patio oasis to entertain your family and friends.
The key to uniting these seemingly different spaces is elegance! We can achieve this through the careful selection of plants as well as the style of hardscape. For example, we make sure that the different materials we use will blend together to achieve the look you want. If you want to achieve a modern look in your backyard, we may choose stone pavers for your patio, and use clean lines and sharp edges to give the space a contemporary feel. However, we would use softer lines and patterns to transition from an entertainment area to a meditation garden so things flow more smoothly. Remember, less is more!
