It’s almost officially summer! Make the most of the warmer weather in Illinois by creating an outdoor space that’s ideal for not only relaxation but social gatherings as well! We are ready to help you add personal touches and customize your property to enhance the beauty, functionality and versatility of your outdoor space. Make your outdoor living area the showplace of your block! Here are some ideas to create an oasis you’ll never want to leave:

1. Create an outdoor kitchen and entertainment space

Turn your backyard into the ultimate al fresco dining area! Whether it’s barbecuing on your patio or preparing dinner under the stars, people will be delighted to receive an invitation to your next big event. Appliances such as a pizza oven, flat-top grill, and a smoker enhance your cooking area to host friends and family for simple get-togethers or that special occasion. We can help take your entertainment space to another level!

2. Incorporate evergreens to create privacy around your backyard

Introduce color, texture and privacy to your landscape by planting evergreen hedges. Relax in comfort knowing your space has a sense of privacy. Our team will help you create magnificent outdoor spaces brimming with lush, diverse plants that are not only gorgeous but create a beautiful, softened  view as well.

3. Get cozy with an outdoor fire pit

After the sun goes down, fire pits add warmth and coziness to your outdoor area while keeping the bugs away! Add flair and grandeur to your property with an outdoor hearth. Our satisfied clients share how we’ve helped give their home a warmer look.

4. Define your space with a pergola or pavilion

If you are looking for an additional, defined area in your landscape we will design and build a pergola, perfect for creating a structured space to entertain your family and friends. This can provide not only increased privacy but protection and shade from the elements as well!

5. Use accent lighting to illuminate your outdoor oasis

Showcase the great features of your backyard, even at night! Add the right ambiance to your space while illuminating paths, walkways, and even your driveway to increase safety.
