Top 5 outdoor design trends for 2014

by Tim Sanford on 04/09/14

The American Society of Landscape Architects released the results of their annual Landscape Architecture Trends Survey. The survey revealed that customers are most interested in attractively designed, low-maintenance outdoor spaces for entertaining and relaxing.  Perfect...that is what we specialize in designing and building!   

Using some of our projects as examples, here's a look at the top five most in-demand outdoor living features for 2014. Let us know how we can help build your outdoor respite. 

  • Outdoor Lighting (98.3%) - A great way to enhance your outdoor landscape - add a lighted fan to a pergola, pendant lights to an outdoor kitchen or just some up lighting to enhance your plantings. 

  • Seating and Dining Areas (97.7%) - Add a perfect place to relax to read a book or an expansive are to entertain company. 

  • Fire pits and Fireplaces (95.4%) - A wonderful way to extend the time you are able to use your outdoor space.  Great for roasting marshmallows on those cool winter nights...oh s'mores.

  • Grill Islands (94.3%) - Bring your whole kitchen outside...we can install grills, refrigerators, warming drawers, side burners, kegorators and even the kitchen sink!

  • Installed Outdoor Seating (89.6%) - Why buy furniture when we can build it into the landscape.  Seat walls and built in benches are a great way to provide additional seating while you are entertaining.
