Outdoor Living

  • Focus on outdoor living – Outdoor living spaces are the perfect spot for relaxing and entertaining. You can improve your yard’s functionality by adding or updating outdoor structures. These will provide you with a comfortable space to unwind. You can also complement your outdoor living spaces with hardscaping. Popular choices include stone slabs, crushed gravel and rock, and pavers. In addition, a nice hardscape will make the surrounding plants look sharper and more beautiful.
  • Create a garden – According to the Houzz survey, gardening is the second most popular use of outdoor space. Gardening is an excellent hobby that allows you to connect with nature. As an expert in gardening and patio design in Seattle, we recommend using plants that flower and are low maintenance. You can also incorporate plants that attract bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies. Since these plants are also visually appealing, your garden will look beautiful while it nurtures nature.
  • Implement an irrigation solution – Many homeowners around the country are thinking of how to deal with water in their outdoor living space. Drainage and flooding are the top challenge when it comes to outdoor upgrades after all. Fortunately, we can install a professionally designed irrigation system. We use spray nozzles that can increase your system’s efficiency by up to 30%. We also encourage the use of Smart Controllers that track several variables to eliminate under or over watering.

These are just some of the possibilities for your outdoor living in Seattle. Lifestyle Landscapes has many years of experience in exceeding our customers’ expectations.
