Making the Outside of Your Yard Beautiful for the Warmer Months

When you’re looking at your yard and wondering what can spice it up a bit, bring something a bit more dramatic to it and really make it stand out from the competition, nothing might be coming to mind. However, Architectural Landscape Design has the creativity, the power to bring you a beautiful yard, with vibrant colors and the functionality that you’ve been wanting for quite some time. No matter how big, or small the yard; we can spruce it up and make it the private, personal getaway you’ve always wanted it to be. Here are some of the great ideas that we can put to use in your yard.

Outdoor Water Features

Water features are everything from small ponds to large swimming pools and even fountains. When you add a beautiful water touch to your yard, this says summer retreat, this says warmer weather, and it is also something that is relaxing and soothing. You can choose from multiple styles, while also ensuring that you have something that stands out from the rest of those homes on the block.  There are stock elements such as recirculating fountains and mini-waterfalls, or we can design and install a custom water element for you.

Patios, Porches and Decks

Want somewhere to sit and enjoy the day? Having a brick patio, a covered porch, or beautiful deck added to the back (or front) of your Minneapolis home can make comfort outside a little bit better for everyone. Add beautiful chairs and furniture that you can all enjoy, or plant some flowers around it and add lattice up the sides for privacy. A hot tub would be great in the corner, with a dining area in the middle.  Outdoor bars are all the rage right now, and these can easily be added to your porch, patio or deck.

Functional Outdoor Areas 

Many people want their yards to be as functional as their homes. With this, you can add a sitting area, complete with a small fireplace or even an outdoor kitchen so you can prepare and serve meals right there where everyone is. A little creativity in this area can go a long way and provide you with more function than usage.  Other functional elements include attractive storage and outdoor game areas.
