Creating Your Outdoor Escape

Whether you're envisioning a cozy oasis for relaxation or a vibrant space for entertaining, customizing your patio with unique features can transform it into a haven tailored to your preferences.


From luxurious additions to practical enhancements, here are five custom features to consider for creating your dream outdoor escape this spring.


No. 1 Outdoor Kitchen and Bar Area:

Take your al fresco dining experience to the next level with a custom outdoor kitchen and bar area. Incorporate built-in appliances such as a grill, refrigerator, sink, and ample counter space for food preparation. Enhance the ambiance with stylish bar stools, mood lighting, and a pergola or canopy for shade. An outdoor kitchen and bar area not only elevates your patio's functionality but also fosters a welcoming atmosphere for gatherings and celebrations.

No. 2 Fire Pit or Fireplace

Extend your enjoyment of the patio into the cooler evenings of spring by installing a fire pit or fireplace. Opt for a built-in fire feature designed to complement your patio's aesthetic, whether it's a rustic stone fire pit or a sleek gas fireplace. Position seating arrangements strategically around the fire pit to encourage cozy conversations and create a focal point for relaxation.


No. 3 Custom Lighting Design

Illuminate your patio retreat with a thoughtfully curated lighting design that enhances its beauty and functionality after sundown. From soft ambient lighting to dramatic accents, explore a variety of lighting options to set the mood and highlight architectural features. Incorporate overhead string lights, LED pathway lighting, sconces, and lanterns to create layers of illumination that cater to different activities and preferences. Consider integrating smart lighting controls for effortless customization and energy efficiency.

No. 4 Water Feature

A custom water feature is another way to bring your backyard to the next level. Whether it's a fountain, stream, or pond, water features add an element of serenity and elegance to outdoor spaces. Choose a design that complements your patio's style, whether it's contemporary, tropical, or Mediterranean-inspired.


No. 5 Outdoor Entertainment System

Elevate your outdoor entertainment experience with a custom audio-visual system that brings your favorite music, movies, and sports events to the patio.
