Five Popular Outdoor Living Features

At Diamond Pavers, we handle all aspects of this job, ensuring that you get the type of outdoor living installation that will look amazing, improve outdoor space usability, and increase your property's value.

Outdoor Patio

Patios are one of the most popular outdoor living features homeowners opt for. A patio is an extension of the indoor areas and allows you to use the yard optimally. If you want to make the best use of this space and get an excellent return on investment, you should plan the feature well. Select resilient floorings such as natural stone, brick, or concrete paving. Install a fire feature if there is room for one and half-height walls with seating along the patio's periphery. You can also construct a pergola over the patio for some shade and protection from the elements.

Outdoor Kitchen

If you like to throw parties, entertain guests, or even spend relaxed moments with your family in the comfort of your home, installing an outdoor kitchen is one of the best ways to achieve this objective. The kitchen can be a great addition to your backyard, and you can plan all the features to make it a practical and usable space. Install pavers on the floor and plan the counters and storage well. Decide which appliances you want to place there and keep space for a stove, BB, grill, etc. If you want a fireplace or fire feature, determine where you want to put it and create a seating space around it.

Outdoor Fireplace

An outdoor fireplace is an excellent addition to your landscape. Depending on your preferences, you can create either an elaborate or straightforward design or use materials such as natural stone, brick, and concrete in the construction. Decide how much seating space you need, based on how many guests you generally entertain. You can build seating walls and keep some room for outdoor furniture as well. An outdoor fireplace can dominate the yard area, so proper planning and the right material choices are crucial. A well-designed and expertly installed outdoor fireplace can become the focal point of your yard, creating a warm and welcoming look in your yard.

Outdoor BBQ

One of the best ways to improve your outdoor kitchen's functionality is to install a BBQ in it. You can also install this feature in any area of your yard and create a simple seating area around it. Some homeowners place the outdoor BBQ on their patio or deck as well. Since there are several different products on the market, it's best to consult hardscaping professionals who will provide advice and input on the layout, design, size, placement, and more.

Outdoor Fire Pit

If you like the idea of getting a fire feature installed in your yard but want something more compact than a full-scale fireplace, consider installing an outdoor fire pit. This feature can be a great addition to your yard, and skilled hardscaping professionals can customize the design based on your needs. You can opt for materials such as natural stone, brick, and concrete with veneer cladding.
