Your Backyard Landscape Can Be Your Oasis Retreat

There has never been a better time to dream big when creating your backyard landscape. Whereas the front yard is often considered more of a public space, the backyard is your opportunity to create an oasis that is solely for you to enjoy. Adding features that fit your lifestyle is key to creating a space where you can relax and entertain.

Gardens – The Backbone Of The Backyard Landscape

This may seem like a no-brainer but garden design can make or break a backyard landscape. A good garden design integrates form, texture, layering and color that can make a backyard retreat all your own and special for you.

 Fire Pits – Hotter Than Ever

Nothing beats sitting around an open fire on a cool evening. Whether it is fueled by the crackling of burning wood or by natural gas, a fire pit extends the fun way past sundown. Don’t forget the s’mores!

Outdoor Kitchens – Now We're Cooking

Grilling is a favorite American pastime.  Why not create an awesome outdoor kitchen to make it ever more enjoyable. Add a refrigerator, warming tray and storage area, the possibilities are endless. Cooking up a feast has never been so much fun.



Hardscapes – The Outdoor Living Room

Expand your indoors to the outdoors. There are so many materials and patio styles to choose from that the possibilities are endless. Creating different rooms for dining and chilling will make your patio just right for you.

Spending time in your backyard landscape is not as much fun if you are being roasted by a hot sun. Whether a classic or contemporary design, pergolas can provide the shade you need to stay cool.

We love container gardens! So much can be done with these tiny gardens. The containers themselves become art pieces overflowing with color and texture from an array of plant choices. Bring the garden onto the patio.

Fountains – Water Soothes The Soul

71% of the earth is covered with water. Why not bring some into your backyard. Water features can take the form of a rippling stream, a peaceful koi pond or a flower pot with water bubbling over the sides. No matter what style you choose, water is always a wonderful element in your landscape.


Fences – Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

The old saying that good fences make good neighbors may be true. Fences are a simple choice for adding privacy but they also can create a beautiful backdrop for blooming plants. They also provide security and keep pets from running away.


 Lighting – Get Your Glow On

Why let the party end when the sun goes down? Outdoor light provides atmosphere, safety and security to your backyard landscape. With today’s LED bulb solutions, the energy savings can really add up.
