Backyard Landscaping Ideas
Install a Fire Pit
A custom outdoor fireplace or fire pit is the perfect combination of beauty and functionality which provides light, warmth, and ambiance to your patio or backyard. Choose from a multitude of design and material options such as brick, stone, or concrete and a fuel source that best suits your needs and lifestyle.
Build a Raised Vegetable Garden
Poor soil conditions, space limitations, and physical restrictions can be a deterrent to vegetable gardening for many, but a raised bed is the ideal solution that can be configured to suit any backyard landscape. Loose, rich, easily accessible soil stays warmer above ground for an extended growing season with fewer weeds and minimal bending.
Hardscape is any non-living component of a landscape made from either man-made materials or natural elements such as stone or wood. Whether decorative or functional, hardscaping can help to provide a focal point or add definition to your outdoor space.
- Retaining walls
- Stone, concrete, or brick patios
- And more!
Be Creative with Lighting
In addition to highlighting key features of your landscape, a well-designed lighting scheme also provides safe secure passage around your property year-round. Choose a variety of different lighting types and styles for best results including string lights, pendant lights, floodlights, and more.
Create an Outdoor Kitchen
Live the Alaskan summer life to the fullest! An outdoor kitchen lets you join in the fun with the tools and equipment you need to prepare and serve delicious food and drinks from the comfort of your backyard. Choose your components based on your budget, space, and lifestyle, with options that include:
- Outdoor grill
- Wine fridge
- Bar seating
- Storage space
- Task lighting
- And more!
Install Terracing Garden Beds
Turn your sloped yard to your advantage by adding one or more terraces filled with flowers or vegetables. Reinforce the structure with a retaining wall constructed from wood, stone, concrete blocks, or other materials, and complete the look with a set of steps for easy access.
