GATHER AROUND A FIREPIT
Nothing says summer like the the sound of a crackling campfire. Firepits make for a warming focal point in a backyard, so if you want to incorporate one, consider planning your landscaping around it. Adding some natural elements like shrubs and stone, gives a natural rugged look.
DIP INTO A POOL
When there’s a pool on the property, taking a vacation is as simple as stepping outside. A pool is the ultimate centrepiece, and surrounding it with a bar, an outdoor kitchen, a large firepit and lounge area, are all components meant to allow you and your guests to linger.
DESIGN A DINING AREA
It doesn’t take much to create an outdoor dining area perfect for an intimate gathering or large social affair. When planning, consider elements like the number of seats and the style of furniture. Adding cozier seating and heaters means you can enjoy the outdoors rain or shine.
ADD EXTRA SEATING
Plan for plenty of seating, especially if you love to entertain. Outdoor sectionals and couches with comfortable cushions ensure there’s room for everyone and makes the space inviting… Guests won’t want to leave!

When you need a change of scenery, an outdoor kitchen and dining area is the solution. When planning, you want to think about proximity to gas, water, and electrical hookups. Creating an outdoor kitchen on a covered patio means you can cook up a delicious meal anytime of year and enjoy your surroundings while protected from all elements.
CENTER YOUR SPACE WITH A FOUNTAIN
Create a focal point in your garden with a fountain. In formal garden designs, fountains are often put in the middle of the outdoor space, at the intersection between two or more paths. Talk about visual appeal and a calming sound to enjoy when relaxing outdoors.
LAYER IN STONE
The warm tones of natural stone add an element of softness and contrast. Not only can it create an inviting, cozy, outdoor space, but it can be used to differentiate spaces such as built-in seating and flower beds. It also happens to contrast with the natural elements like grasses and wood, adding visual interest to an outdoor living space.
