Have you dreamed of creating a backyard space where you would be proud to entertain? At Scapes Inc., we specialize in helping homeowners transform their outdoor spaces into beautiful, functional areas where guests love to linger. Our professional Dallas landscape design and construction services team will work with you to develop a backyard landscaping plan that fits your style and allows you to entertain in the fashion you desire.
Every homeowner has unique needs and goals for their outdoor spaces, and we enjoy helping turning their landscape design dreams into a reality. If you’re ready to start your backyard transformation, you’ll want to decide on the main theme or function for the space. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Outdoor Kitchen – A Chef’s Dream
If you love to cook for friends and family while spending time outdoors, consider making an outdoor kitchen your focal point. Since all of our client’s have different spaces and goals, the outdoor kitchen designs we create are customized to work with the space available as well as the amenities that the homeowner chooses. The kitchen should include the tools and appliances needed for the chef’s cooking style. And just about anything that you would include in an indoor kitchen can be included in an outdoor kitchen. You will want to consider the following options:
- Stainless steel appliances (ovens, stove tops, sinks, refrigerators, wine coolers, beer coolers, food warmers, dishwasher, etc.).
- Built-in BBQ grill, smoker and/or pizza oven.
- Flooring and finishings (tile, stonework, patterned concrete, woodwork, paints, stains, cushions, outdoor lighting, etc.).
- Furniture and seating (bars, bar stools, tables, chairs, benches, etc.).
Outdoor Sports Zone
If you’re the type of person who’s loves hanging out with your buddies while watching your favorite teams and sporting events – transform your backyard into a sports lover’s destination. Comfortable seating and easy access to food and beverages should be part of the plan here, not to mention the ability to view the game from multiple points of view. Consider these amenities for your sports-focused backyard:
- See the outdoor kitchen options above.
- Grilling and BBQ station.
- Pools and spas.
- Gaming areas (from bocce ball to video games).
- Televisions and sound systems.
Outdoor Family Fun Time
If your lifestyle includes kids, family time and friends, we can help transform your backyard into a fun space where kids have loads of activities to keep them occupied while offering a place for adults to be entertained as well. Backyard landscaping in Dallas often includes spots to keep cool during our long, hot summers. If you want to keep kids AND adults entertained, consider adding a swimming pool, spa and other water features to the mix. Other considerations might include:
- Space for kids to run and play games.
- Custom jungle gyms and swings.
- An outdoor kitchen. Why not? (See above.)
- Separate seating areas for kids and adults.
- Large dining table with chairs.
