Backyard Renovations

Your backyard may be a bit chaotic right now. The landscaping may not be ideal for creating an oasis where you’ll want to spend hours at a time. You may think that there’s absolutely no hope of ever having a backyard that you’ll love.

Whether you’re dealing with uneven ground, a significant amount of overgrowth, or simply old structures that don’t make sense for your newest desires, we can provide comprehensive renovations.

In no time, we’ll get your backyard (or front yard or side yard) renovated so that it can be the beautiful area you have always dreamed of.

Retaining Walls

Retaining walls don’t have to be an eyesore. Often, they are there to prevent erosion and battle gravity. That doesn’t mean that is their only purpose, however.

In fact, they can be both useful and beautiful. When you have a wall created somewhere on your property, it can help with drainage, offering privacy, and even addressing uneven ground.

Patios, Decks, & Driveways

It’s important that you have the space you need for all that you’re going to do while outside. Patios and decks can offer you places to sit and spend your time outdoors while driveways and walkways can ensure that you’re not trampling your beautiful landscaping.

These areas can be concrete, stone, and more – and can provide a nice contrast from the greenery around you. We can help you to create vibrant spaces for you, your vehicles, and more.



Pergolas are fun and creative ways to establish a space in your yard. These can provide you with shelter from the elements while also providing you with plenty of room for seating, grills, and other components. When you want a vibrant outdoor living space, pergolas can be sized to accommodate any size that you need. They can also provide you with shade so that you can spend more time outside, enjoying the beauty around you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you plan an outdoor living space?

In order to plan an outdoor living space, we recommend imagining how you plan on using the space. Consider some of the existing design elements too as many areas can be easily repurposed or renovated. Explore the design materials you want to be used in your outdoor area as well as the functional and design features that are important for your space.

What are some design considerations related to the outdoor living area?

The size and shape of your outdoor living space will be among the top design considerations as it will limit what you can do and where. Additionally, you’ll want to think about privacy, weather protection, and how accessible the outdoor living area should be. Facilities should also be considered, such as whether you’ll need electricity run for an exhaust hood of a BBQ or a water line for an outdoor kitchen sink.

How much value does an outdoor living space add?

The value that an outdoor living space can add is dramatic – though it depends on just how much you add to your space. Lighting, materials, and overall function will play into it. You also don’t want to take up your entire backyard space.

Overall, you can expect a well-designed patio to add approximately 10% to your home value. And the ROI over time can be 80% or more.
