Outdoor Living Spaces
Life's better outdoors. Nothing else gives you the same feeling of freedom and living in the moment making the most of the seasons. Which is why it's such a pleasure for the team at Michigan Landscape Craftsman to create lovely livable outdoor spaces for you to share with your family and friends. So often we see homeowners putting a lot of time, money, and effort into making unexciting extensions to their homes' interiors in the quest for more living space when the real possibilities are literally on their doorstep in the front or back yard. Why not have one of our consultants come and have a chat about just how we could remodel your outdoor spaces to give you a whole new set of rooms without roofs?
Decks and Patios
The first thing about ensuring that your outdoor living spaces is truly livable is ensuring that it is practical underfoot. For that you want to think about how decks and patios could expand your home into the yard and at the same time expand the number of hours in the day that you can live outdoors with your family. We can deliver beautiful paver patios and create perfect decks for you either remodeling existing space or creating new outdoor living areas for you which will take into account the exposure and local weather to get the most out your outdoors.
Ramadas and Pergolas
Often the idea of outdoor living is about providing the sense of walls and roofs but without having the enclosure effect because you want your living space to blend in beautifully with the outdoors it is located in. Ramadas are roofed areas without walls, like a gazebo tent but more solid, while pergolas are a roof structure that offers visual shelter but is open to the sunlight. Talk to us about how these outdoor structures can add class and even a sense of serenity to your outdoor spaces.
Designing a great poolside is more than just putting down some pavers and taking care of the non slip factor. A really great poolside area should take into account the non swimmers, the safety of small ones and furry family members, and the practicalities of where to eat, drink, or just chill near the pool when you're not actually in the water. We can design around any shape of pool to show you ways of maximizing the benefit you get from your pool. Talk to us today to find out how.
Everyone loves to cook outdoors. It brings out the inner caveman in us all. But why stick at the simple barbecue when it comes to outdoor cooking? You wouldn't just stand around a single grill indoors so why not give yourself the space and practicality you expect of an indoor kitchen but set in the fresh air. We can help you design outdoor kitchens with paving and table areas, working surfaces, built in faucets and sinks and the drainage and tucked away trash bin areas that you want to go with them so that preparing and cooking food with friends is something you take as much pleasure from doing al fresco as you do when it comes to the eating.
