If you’re looking for ideas, here are some of the biggest trends for outdoor styles coming in 2018.

Sculptural Seat Wall

A sculptural seat wall is a great addition around any fire pit. It will improve the aesthetic of the fire pit with an attractive curve. In addition to contributing to a stylish landscape, the wall will provide a good amount of seating around a fire pit, allowing you and guests to enjoy a warm fire on a cool evening next summer.

Outdoor Bars

Outdoor bars are a great addition to your property. Often accompanied by an outdoor kitchen, this feature is the perfect way to turn your outdoor area into an ideal living space. Not only will an outdoor bar make your landscaping more attractive, but it will also allow you to enjoy your time outside without needing to run inside for refreshments.

Bean-Shaped Pools

Swimming pools are a great addition to any landscape, providing a fun way to cool off in the summer. A bean-shaped pool provides this function while improving the overall aesthetic of your landscaping. A bean-shaped pool will look much more attractive and less harsh than a rectangular pool. This option is a great way to add a fun feature to your living space without sacrificing its aesthetic appeal.

Natural Stone Steps

Installing steps in your landscaping can help you and visitors safely navigate your property. When you choose steps made of natural stone, they can provide this function while improving the aesthetic appeal of your property. These steps will blend nicely with your natural landscape and provide a rustic and attractive appearance.

CLIENT COMMENTS

"We didn't want to let too much time pass before writing to you. We are so pleased with the patio and have already used it many times in the past few weeks. We always had a nice retreat in the woods - but now we are actually USING the space to read, cook and relax. Your team was a pleasure to work with on the project. Dave kept everything moving and we felt very well informed throughout the build. He went above and beyond to make sure that our property was well cared for and that the patio ultimately fit our vision. Jimmy was the other key component to the team. He is an extremely hard worker that was very dedicated to the project and easily served as our onsite contact when Dave was unavailable. We cannot compliment either of them enough! From the beginning, we have loved your vision for this project and we hope to work with you again in the future. Thank you for creating our new backyard oasis! It's perfect." Read more comments
