Walkways: A Path to Relaxation
The walk from your backdoor to your garden or patio can be one of the highlights of your day. Knowing you’re headed to a quiet, luxurious, and relaxing space alone can begin to unwind you from a long day.
Patios: Sit and Unwind
Forget the concrete slab. Patios should be an extension of your home. Patios are a place to sit down after a long day, put your feet up, and enjoy the evening air. Patios come in all shapes and sizes, literally. We can create both big and small, square and abstractly shaped patios. We can design the patio to complement your home by not only custom designing the shape, but also by carefully choosing the right type of building supplies. Whether you would like a rock patio or a wooden deck, we will make sure the patio fits both the style of your home and your own personal style.
Fire Pits: Bask in the Glow
Nothing is as comforting as cozying up next to a warm fire. You can sit and watch the flames dance under the night sky. Our gorgeous outdoor fireplaces and fire pits are perfect for adding warmth to your space or patio. They are prefect for Fall and Winter with the crisp evening air. You can gather around with your family and roast marshmallows, or just enjoy a glass of wine after a long day. The comfort of a warm glow is no longer restricted to your living room.
How Do You Use an Outdoor Kitchen?
Outdoor Kitchens have many uses, especially around Austin since the weather is warm for the majority of the year. Outdoor kitchens are obviously great for grilling with family and friends, but they can also be used for more intimate settings. Settings such as a sunrise breakfast. It’s the best of both worlds – you’re in the privacy of your own home, but you get to enjoy nature as you serve up omelets and coffee
