Here are three things to consider when planning your Outdoor Space


Accessibility to the space, privacy, property boundaries, water drainage, and landscaping and scenery all come into effect when planning these outdoor spaces. With spaces like outdoor kitchens you have to consider the layout of plumbing, electrical, and gas lines.


Outdoor living spaces can be as simple or elaborate as you wan such as, televisions, sound systems, fireplaces, lighting, and even heating and cooling elements.


For decks, do you want a wood or composite deck? Patios can be laid with poured concrete which can be stamped, molded or tinted for a variety of styles. Patios can also be made of pavers, either from brick, concrete, or natural stone. All materials have a different degree of maintenance to think about.
