Backyard bars and bar sheds were among the top patio features nationwide for 2017. Forget $10 beers and an Uber home, winning outdoor bar design provides a safe, comfortable and festive place to indulge in dinner and a drink with family and friends.  


Water Features Provide Sizzling Solutions for Problem Spaces

Homeowners are increasingly turning to water features for their calming influence. An ideal addition in ‘wasted space,’ or as a feature in awkward areas, from small fountains to large ponds, no matter how water features are integrated into an outdoor living space, they always create a beautiful, inviting focal point. 



Outdoor Kitchens Fire-Up the Dining Experience

Outdoor kitchens top the ‘want list’ of many homeowners, and for good reason. Going far beyond the tabletop hibachis of yesterday, today’s outdoor kitchen and dining areas have taken things up a notch, with stone countertops and cabinets, built-in sinks, refrigerators, and high-tech grilling islands reminiscent of their indoor counterparts.  


Fire Pits Add a Bit of Spice

Available in rectangular and flagstone styles, this natural stone is compatible with both modern and rustic styles, its blue-grey tones pairing will with hydrangea and plumbago. 


Pergolas Add a Sultry Shelter Solution

Patio cover is no longer a nicety, it’s a must-have for a functional outdoor living area, leading the vast majority of backyard renovations to incorporate pergolas as a shelter solution.
