There are endless options available to you in designing your dream outdoor living space and now is the perfect time to start planning for this upcoming spring and summer seasons. Not to mention, there are options available to you that you can enjoy all year long!

Fire Features

One great way to enjoy more time outdoors is with a fireplace or firepit. This is an option that is perfect for those cool, chilly Michigan nights. It can be utilized year-round and create an excellent focal point for your outdoor living space. You can design a stand-alone fire feature with brick, stone, or can even have it connect with a new retaining wall. Fire features can be used with propane or natural gas, or by wood. We recommend having a gas option, as it will be less maintenance for you chopping, hauling and cleaning up of wood. The installation process will vary depending on how involved you would like your fire feature to be.

Covered Patios

Covered patios allow you to have a designated space to spend outdoors and all year-round. Having a roof will help protect you from the spring showers or even the powerful UV rays in the summertime. Covered patios will also allow you to have more options for decorating or making your living space fit your individual needs. For example, a meal preparation station or television may be components that you are interested in having. These both should be protected from the elements, and a covered patio would do just that.

Retaining Walls

Retaining walls can tie in the entire look of your outdoor living space. They can be built of stone or brick and can be the base of your fire feature if you choose to have one. If you already have an existing patio, not to worry! Retaining walls can easily be added, making your existing outdoor living space look fresh and new. They give you the option of installing soft walls, if you would like privacy and even some help with blocking the wind. If you would like to get creative with the design of your retaining walls, you may consider having flower planters built into the tops of the walls, allowing a pop of color. If you are unsure about the options available, an expert from Fresh Cut Lawn and Landscaping will be able to assist you.
