If a refresh is on your agenda for the new year, you may want to consider a new look for your Redmond and Sammamish, WA, landscape. With the following landscape design ideas, you can make your dream yard happen this year.
A paver patio is a wonderful addition to a backyard. It could expand your options for living your best life while also giving you more space to entertain your friends and family.
But before you can get to the point of enjoying your patio, there’s the joy involved in deciding exactly what it should look like. Choose among a wide variety of styles, shapes, sizes, and patterns for the new pavers, which are a significant upgrade from a poured concrete patio or expanse of lawn that does not get much use. Paver patios are classy and modern additions that entice homeowners to spend more time outside.
We’re fortunate to get a lot of rain in Redmond and Sammamish, WA, to help our lawns grow lush and green. But we also have to deal with the occasional standing water that can lead to potential soil erosion and even house foundation problems.
Retaining walls can be a wonderful solution to these issues and can serve other functional purposes, too. Installing a retaining wall can help to redirect water to a more desirable location, away from foundations. Additionally, a retaining wall can address the many issues involved with a sloped landscape, to provide you with more outdoor spaces to relax or entertain.
Retaining walls can also be beautiful features, depending on the type of wall stone you choose, whether you want a rustic feature that looks like one stone stacked upon another, or a more modern, more sleek look for your wall.
Cooking and dining outside is simply more wonderful than inside. The cooking scents don’t linger, and cleanup is so much easier. The fresh air and beauty around you will make everyone want to linger—and enjoy your meal. Today’s outdoor kitchens go far beyond a simple barbeque grill to make outdoor cooking fully convenient.
With a pizza oven, a stovetop, and even a refrigerator, you can entertain your guests outside and delight them with your cooking prowess at the same time.
Make the route to your front entrance or to your patio more beautiful and clear with a paver walkway. This practical addition can complement your patio by using the same design scheme, or you could opt for a contrasting appearance, with darker, smaller, and highly textured pavers. The choice is yours.
Perfect for the cooler days, an outdoor fireplace is an eye-catching addition even when it is not in use. An outdoor fireplace can come in a simple design or be highly elaborate, and any style will add a cozy look and feel to your backyard.
An outdoor fireplace is an excellent feature to enjoy while hosting, setting the tone of a quiet romantic evening, or simply reading alone for some relaxation on a brisk day.
As the new year brings new opportunities and experiences, consider the excitement and pleasure that landscaping changes could bring you and your household.
