American homeowners increasingly are drawn to adding outdoor rooms for entertaining and recreation on their properties, according to the 2013
Residential Landscape Architecture Trends survey
conducted by the American Society of Landscape
Architects. The results also show demand for sustainable and low-maintenance design.
Terraces, patios, and decks are high on people’s lists
(97.6 percent), as are fencing (89.6 percent) and ornamental water features (84.2 percent).
I mentioned in an earlier blog that decks, patios, and 3-season rooms have become the new family rooms and dens across America. As economical problems still loom over our heads, people are looking to their homes not only as their safe havens, but their entertainment spaces as well. Just stay home and chill out, save money, but enjoy yourself at the same time. The photo of the deck on the left is one we finished back in August of 2012. The customers chose a pergola, benches, an outdoor kitchen and firepit. You don't always have to be extravagant, but an outdoor space is a must for most home buyers today. Let us help help you have the outdoor area for you and your family to enjoy.
