Whether you’re looking to completely customize an outdoor kitchen for your patio or deck area, or spruce up your current area with quality design elements like a kitchen island or bar area equipped with choice stainless steel appliances, an array of outdoor kitchen accessories are available for virtually every budget.
Start by considering the equipment you’ll use the most. Grills, sinks and refrigerators are natural choices; extras like pizza ovens, rotisseries and side burners may sound like must-have add-ons, but don’t lose sight of what’s most important to the outdoor cook.
Built-in grills, whether custom-designed or pre-assembled, are a great way to make the most of your outdoor kitchen space, as the extra surface area can be used for prep work, sinks, or burners, while the base can be decorative (think stone, brick, or rock), or include built-in storage drawers, warming drawers, appliances such as beverage coolers, ice makers and more.
If you are considering an outdoor kitchen don’t miss out on this perfect opportunity to create a great outdoor gathering place for your friends and family to congregate, eat, watch sports, or just kick back and relax.
Outdoor Fire Features
An outdoor fire feature is the perfect finishing touch to anchor your complete outdoor living space. Even if you’re planning to do your project in stages, you should consider your options and plan ahead. This is not only for the flow and balance of your main living area, but also to ensure your patio will be large enough to house a fire feature, seating, and still have room for your family and friends to move about while others are sitting around the fire. We also want to make sure we bury any gas lines that may need to be installed before we block off access with any patios, decks, and other landscaping. This will ensure we do not have to redo work we’ve already done. You’ll also want to think about gas vs. wood. We recommend gas where possible. You will be more likely to use a gas fire feature a lot more often. Gas powered fires can be turned off and on many times with a flip of switch. There is a certain level of commitment when you start a fire with wood. You spend time getting it started, time tending it, and time waiting for it to burn out. Not to mention at the end of the night the campfire smell in clothing is virtually unavoidable. I like a good campfire at times, but I love the convenience of gas. My suggestion is if you love tending a fire, consider a gas fire in main space and use a wood fire pit in another location. It is an excellent opportunity to create an additional more quant space. No matter your preference or idea, The Groundskeeper has a custom solution for you.
Pergolas, Decks and Garden Structures
Outdoor structures can really bring home that outdoor room feel. Whether it’s a covered roofed pavilion right outside your back door, or maybe an open area pergola over your deck or atop a perfect patio within your landscaping, outdoor structures can give you a perfect opportunity to add another living space in a relatively underutilized space.
When designing a space, our designers pay special attention to a custom one of a kind feel that often includes a deck that use various materials, shapes, and textures. Your deck is usually your entryway to the rest of your property. With the right design, we can make your most used outdoor space feel like an intimate area within a larger living space that is inviting into the rest of your real estate. After all, you paid for it; you should get some use out of it.
Definition of an arbor: An arbor is a shady resting place in a garden or park, often made of rustic work or latticework on which plants, such as climbing shrubs or vines, are grown.
Arbors are a great chance to create a cozy area along a path, shade a pathway, or anchor an entryway. These wooden structures can be used to grow climbing plants, give height to a space or a nice backdrop, and can also be a beautiful transition from one space to another.
