HERE ARE A FEW OF THE THINGS YOU MAY WISH TO CONSIDER AS WAYS TO ENHANCE YOUR BACKYARD:
1. OUTDOOR LIGHTING
Adding outdoor lighting enhances the beauty of your backyard and increases your enjoyment of it. Lighting creates focal points for your yard, terrace, patio, pool, and/or garden. Consider highlighting trees, flowers beds, paths, walkways, and planting beds with spotlights for ambient lighting.
2. OUTDOOR KITCHEN
A custom outdoor kitchen can bring your entertaining to the next level. It provides a visual focal point of your backyard while serving a purpose. An outdoor kitchen can include a wine cooler, grill area, bar, and seating area. It can serve as a great place to spend your leisure time or have outdoor parties. A custom outdoor kitchen becomes an extra living space and an extension of the home.
A beautiful fountain can transform your backyard into a relaxing retreat. Having a fountain on your property brings you a whole new sensory experience with the restorative sound and hypnotizing movement of trickling water. It can help you relax on busy and stressful days. It can even help camouflage traffic or neighborhood noise. However, it’s important to use experienced fountain contractors like Mike’s Evergreen to be sure it’s built, installed, and maintained to meet local regulations and codes.
4. KOI POND
Koi can be very friendly fish, and some even like to be touched or tickled. Imagine enjoying the sights and sounds of your koi pond in the morning with your coffee or in the evening while winding down from the workday. A well-designed koi pond can turn your backyard into a private oasis. You can trust the experts at Mike’s Evergreen to help you design, install, and maintain the perfect koi pond to enhance your backyard.
A patio can completely transform your backyard and make it more enjoyable. A patio is an outdoor living space that adds form, function, and even weather protection if it’s a covered patio. Patio covers can be attached or freestanding. Either way, patios are great spaces for entertaining friends and family.
Pergolas provide shady areas that are perfect for those hot summer days in Fresno. They provide an alluring transition to the outdoors, as well as define spaces within your yard. Pergolas are designed to support climbing plants. They simply have posts supporting a roof like structure and are most commonly used to shade a walkway or a deck.
7. MISTING SYSTEM
In our Fresno climate, especially in the summer, a misting system or mist-scape is an absolute necessity for full enjoyment of your yard. When properly installed, these systems can dramatically reduce the temperature in your backyard. A misting system uses very little water (less than half a gallon per hour for each nozzle) and is constructed and installed to last for years.
8. OUTDOOR FIREPLACE OR FIRE PIT
Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits and are both structures that provide a visual focal point while giving off warmth and light. Since the beginning of time, man has sat around fires and swapped stories. The hypnotizing dance of the flames and the shared closeness sparks conversation and camaraderie. However, when it comes to outdoor fireplace or fire pit installation, you need to work with experienced contractors who can get the job done right. You can trust Mike’s Evergreen for the job.
