The COVID-19 pandemic changed the entire world as lockdowns forced Americans into quarantine and remote work exploded. Today, many people spend more time at home than ever before. Consequently, homeowners are investing in property improvements to make the most of their living spaces. The hardscaping services from the design professionals at Maple Leaf Associates Inc. provide one way New York homeowners can create a retreat where they enjoy spending time.
Create a Cozy Outdoor Space
Our clients in the Northeast like to take advantage of being outdoors during seasons where weather permits. Fresh air, quiet water, and scenic seasonal plants create a calm, relaxing environment. For those who like to entertain, upscale patios with overhead string lighting and lots of space for seating appeals to them. Whatever you prefer, hardscaping allows you to design the space that works for your lifestyle.
Enhance Your Outdoor SpaceAdd to the aesthetic appeal of your house with an outdoor patio. For example, we can design steps that lead from your home to accentuate the entry point. Another example is enriching the space around a pool or hot tub to give your outdoor entertaining area a more luxurious feel. As masonry experts, we design walkways and build retaining walls that are functional and pleasing to the eye.
Incorporate Features That Bring Your Outdoor Area to Life
One great feature to include in your hardscaping efforts is a fireplace. As practical as they are beautiful, outdoor fireplaces extend the time you’re able to spend outdoors. At the same time, the masonry technique can create something ornate. You can also place it where it’s highlighted as a prominent, central feature of your outdoor space.
Another feature to consider with hardscaping is an outdoor kitchen. You can get as elaborate as you want by including an overhead covering, bar, seating, and plumbing for sinks. Of course, a grill is a must, but you can build it into the structure, add another cooktop area, or even throw in a woodfire pizza oven. Add upscale finishes and custom cabinetry to complete your look, or scale back by adding only one or two outdoor kitchen elements. You have so many options available to you that allow you to create the outdoor kitchen of your dreams.
