The warmth of the fireplace invites guests outside.
This outdoor kitchen serves as a gathering spot to socialize and relax.
The built-in seating and outdoor fabrics pillows draw people outside.
This is a small, narrow yard that needed to deliver maximum entertaining space for several families at a time. Before the yard remodel no one went outside, the space was dull and unusable! To pull guests outside we set up a big outdoor kitchen counter for guests to gather. The cozy fireplace entices people to relax and the built-in seating gives people a reason to be outside. We added a putting green and dart board to a narrow portion of the yard. This family of 5 loves the fun outdoor distraction. Its also great to look at and easy to maintain.
