A large part of our landscape design services focuses around understanding what the client wants to do with their outdoor space. What opportunities do they want to take advantage of? For some, outdoor entertaining is a big goal. For others, they want limited maintenance and upkeep. For most, they want their lawn and landscape to showcase the best parts of their property and have lots of curb appeal. One way that you can take your landscape up a notch is to include a few focal points of interest.
Focal points in your landscape design can draw the eye naturally to certain areas of your garden and keep them off other areas that you might not want others to see as much. Features such as patios, gazebos, arbors and other elements can naturally draw the eye to these areas of your garden. Things like statues, fountains and other water features are also fantastic points of interest in landscape design that we excel at creating.
Wooden Focal Points
Patios, gazebos, and arbors are structures that can be made of wood that are great for catching the eye. These types of structures are easy for our team to build and put in place in a section of your garden. We can design plants and shrubs around the structure to really help provide a background for the focal point to rest. Patios and gazebos are fantastic for outdoor entertaining. You can even place a grill, bench seats and even outdoor tables on such structures. We also create hardscape patios made of outdoor tile or brick pavers. These locations in your landscape look the best with a designated walkway. We can create small stone walkways, paved walkways and other types of gravel rock walkways that make a nice trail to the focal point.
Outdoor Fireplace, Outdoor Living Room
These days people want to entertain and enjoy the outdoors much more. They have us create outdoor living spaces where they can lounge in the outdoors and watch enclosed televisions and hangout by the outdoor grill. These hardscapes are hugely popular. Outdoor fireplaces are also a huge hit with these types of focal points. Clients plan on enjoying the fireplaces well into the fall when the weather changes. Take your outdoor firepit up a notch and include it in an outdoor living space that includes a fireplace and space for your outdoor television. Our team is equipped to create all types of Boone NC hardscapes that you might think up.
Fountains & Statues
Water features such as tiny ponds and fountains are a huge hit in the High Country. Most properties up here have some form of creek or mountain brook going through them, or nearby. Water makes everyone feel calmer and a fountain allows you to bring water and the sound of it, into your landscape design. We have installed some fountain statues that feature water coming out of the statue. These are especially beautiful if you would like a large water feature that has an artistic flair. Water features look the best with certain types of plants surrounding it. These types of features are easy for us to install and create for you and they add quite a bit of drama to your landscape.
