How can I transform my outdoor space?


Enhance Outdoor Living Areas with Hardscapes

Hardscaping consists of using natural materials, such as wood, stone, or brick, to improve your backyard or outdoor environment. Adding a hardscape design to your outdoor space using solid elements can both increase property value and enhance your enjoyment of the space. Here are few ways we can help:



Custom Pergolas and Cabanas

Creating shade and outdoor rooms with pergolas or covered cabanas is a great way to expand and enhance your outdoor living spaces. Pergolas can turn an ordinary backyard into a comfortable spot to relax with friends and family. We love helping our customers in the Mid South design and build customized pergolas and cabanas to elevate their existing outdoor environment. No matter your landscape design, these garden structures can fit perfectly into your backyard. From natural wood frames to steel and aluminum, there are a variety of different materials to choose from when designing your very own pergola or cabana. Whether the pergola is attached or freestanding, we can do it all. 

Garden Arbors

If your space won’t accommodate a pergola, a garden arbor is a perfect choice to add height and dimension to your outdoor space. Garden arbors or garden arches are simple, free-standing, petite structures that are curved across the top. Like pergolas, arbors are ideal if you’re interested in climbing plants like clematis, climbing roses, and other whimsical flora. Available in a variety of materials such as iron, steel, wood, or even wood composite, Gurley’s can help you select an arbor that fits your space perfectly.


Simple in their structure, a trellis is an inexpensive way to create stunning spaces all while adding value to your home.  Most commonly made from wood, or wrought iron, these lightweight but sturdy additions can enhance the look for your yard. Create outdoor retaining walls, or fit them up against pre-existing garden structures. Our experts can teach you how to select the perfect series of plants to train up your new trellis. Trellises can add contemporary flair or a farmhouse cottage quaintness. Add color and greenery to the side of your home with ease with a trellis.

Custom Porches and Patios

Porches and patios are functional and valuable additions to your home. No matter the size or shape of your landscape design, our team can help you design a custom porch or patio to complement your home. Because porches and patios can be customized from top to bottom, they are one of the best investments you will make for your landscaping. Installing a porch or patio offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • Creates a relaxing outdoor environment

  • Adds value and curb appeal to your home

  • Can keep the outdoor furniture dry

Custom Fire Pits and Fireplaces

If you are looking to add ambiance and relaxation to your outdoor space, look no further than a custom-built fire pit or fireplace. What better way to enjoy a night with friends than to relax next to a warm fire while having meaningful conversations? Custom fire pits and fireplaces are one of our favorite custom outdoor structures to build because each of our customers has a unique taste and vision for their living space. Outdoor fire pits and fireplaces come in a variety of styles. From rustic to elegant, our team can help design a fireplace fit for your outdoor needs.
