Transforming Your Outdoor Space

Posted on: Monday, Apr 24, 2017

Outdoor living spaces are becoming the “norm” for newly built homes in Memphis. It’s an expected amenity these days and can really make or break a sale. We’re talking fancy patios, beautiful landscaping, and sometimes even custom built structures to add functionality and comfort. Sounds nice right? Fortunately it’s not necessary to build an entire new house just to add an outdoor space. Why not add-on to your existing home?

Creating a comfortable and most importantly functional space for you to relax and entertain family and friends is a great way to add value to your home and overall quality of life. However, creating an outdoor living space that everyone can enjoy requires a great deal of planning and expertise to do it right. These spaces are not one-size-fits-all and often require professional help.

As landscape designers, it’s our job to bring any vision you have for an outdoor space to life.  Our experts will meet with you, ask you questions about your wants and needs, and talk about the outdoor design elements you are wanting us to implement in your outdoor space. From there we will put together a comprehensive design plan showing the relationship between each space/ element. It is always important to have a good flowing design plan. After all, once it is built, it’s not going anywhere. Good circulation, scale of elements/ spaces, and view sheds are just a few things to consider. You want a space that becomes a seamless expansion of your home.

Think an outdoor living space is out of your budget? When a customer’s budget doesn’t allow completion of the entire outdoor space at the time of the initial construction, homeowners usually include the covered structure and later add the outdoor kitchen, fireplace/ fire pit, and other items on their wish list. If we plan for it from the beginning, add-ons are usually manageable.

Give us a call if you have any questions regarding these outdoor living spaces and we can talk with you about your wants and needs for your dream space.
