CUSTOM SITE AMENITIES
This is where it gets fun! Custom site amenities are those finishing touches that make your project personal. Yardscapes designers really enjoy designing around a client’s piece of art and making that a statement piece. It personalizes the space.
Amenities involving water will always be a trend, but right now instead of the large built in water features that require a ton of maintenance, clients are requesting small custom metal or basalt stone water features. These require minimal maintenance and still provide the soothing waterfall sound.
Function amenities such custom gates, pergolas, and trellis have come a long way from cedar and lattice. Yardscapes designers still may incorporate a cedar pergola, but add custom metal decorative detail to make it a statement. Now instead of the use of lattice for trellises, we have the capability to bend metal into an art piece that can be used as a trellis. Same with gates, even though you may have a cedar fence, just by adding a custom metal or steel gate creates a function piece of art that adds dimension to your fence.
Creative furniture, such as a mortarted seating wall or custom metal benches are a great way to bring your space alive; especially when it is around a mortared fire or gas fire pit for those cool summer evenings.
Outdoor kitchens are all the rage; but what’s hot right now are wood-fire pizza ovens. It’s a fun way to spend a summer evening with friends! Just remember they do require ample time to heat up.
Yardscapes likes to incorporate that special piece into your space with things like custom gates, arbors, trellis, pergolas, birdbaths, water features, planters and urns, hammock stands, screens, outdoor grill stands, pizza ovens, art, and furniture. A good resource for custom outdoor accents and furnishings is Twisted Elements. They have a large showroom downtown Minneapolis, MN in the International Market Square.
