Custom Fire Pits & Pergolas
There's nothing so great as life outdoors, especially if the outdoors happens to be yours. There are many ways of enjoying it from poolsides to patios but a couple of the most popular we find are custom fire pits and pergolas. Perhaps it's because neither requires a very large amount of space yet they instantly add a unique feel to any yard or garden. They are great to enjoy in themselves as installations that blend function and decoration but also have an important role as a way of highlighting the best features of your outdoor space. At Michigan Landscape Craftsman our team of expert landscape designers and installation team means that we can tailor your landscape features to take into account the topography and nature of your particular space while combining your own vision of just how your features should look.
Metal Fire Pits
Sure you could have a barbecue, but nothing says that you really know what your about when you cook outdoors like a custom made fire pit. There is really no limit to the types of fire pit we can create for you but the most popular types are metal and ceramic. Shaped iron and steel creations give a spectacular look which can be both sophisticated and slightly raw looking at the same time.
Ceramic Fire Pits and Effects
Shaped ceramic fire pits bring the smoothness and sophistication of indoor kitchens to the great outdoors and can look so good that many people opt for fire effects that are not intended for cooking but are instead purely decorative – like a designer outdoor lantern. Talk to us today about just what you want from your fire pit and we will bring that fiery focus to your outdoor spaces.
If you're not sure what a pergola is then think of those times you've seen what looks like the beams of a roof supported on pillars but with no roof on it. A pergola is a time honored way of adding a touch of class to an outdoor spot and can be combined with climbing and trailing plants or vines to give leafy shade or left clean and classical. Either way a pergola gives a whole new dimension to outdoor tables or picnic spots, or just a seating area. We can build a pergola to whatever size you want to accommodate an outdoor dining area or a simple seat. Through careful choice of materials and proper installation (some pergolas require foundation work for example) we can guarantee that it will stand proud and nearly maintenance free whatever the elements throw at it.
Pergolas aren't the only way of highlighting the best spots of your outdoors. Gazebos and ramadas both work on the principle of a roof without walls which combines the best of outdoor space and air with a little minimal cover when needed. That makes them perfect for outdoor dining spots, lookout points, or simply a seat that's perfectly placed to soak up the sumptuousness of your very own slice of the great outdoors.
