Each year when Black Friday hits, Americans hit the stores in droves (at least they did pre-COVID) and hit the online sales in record numbers. We buy a lot of “stuff.” But more and more families are realizing they don’t necessarily need more “stuff.” What they want is an experience. We’re biased, of course, but we think one of the greatest gifts you can give your partner and family is the gift of luxury outdoor living. You create a vacation paradise in your own backyard. By creating an outdoor oasis, you have a place where you can create lasting memories, and host some truly extraordinary parties!
Let’s take a look at some of the most popular options:
An Inground Pool
Having your own inground pool gives your backyard the feel of a vacation spot. Add a spa, a waterfall, and a pool house, and you’ve created a resort-like atmosphere. We design and build custom gunite pools, which allow you to have a completely unique pool that no one else has.
From lap pools to lagoons to beach entry pools, we do it all.
A Custom Patio
Using your choice of natural stone, slabs, or pavers, as well as retaining walls and stairs, a custom patio is one of the most popular outdoor living upgrades. Depending on your space and your vision, we can design and build a smaller patio or a large and expansive patio area that encompasses several levels and a larger space.

An Outdoor Kitchen
If you like to entertain outdoors, an outdoor kitchen is an excellent gift to yourself and the grill master. We can design and build outdoor kitchens that rival some interior chef’s kitchens we’ve seen. You decide the elements you want beyond the basics of a gas grill, countertop, cabinets, refrigeration, and sink, and we’ll draw up some designs that will inspire your inner chef.
For grills and outdoor kitchen products, we turn to Blaze Grills. They come with a lifetime warranty and offer a wide range of products to complete the kitchen.
How to Get Started
When you decide to give the gift of extraordinary outdoor living, you don’t have to wait until springtime. Start doing your research now to find design and build contractors who can turn your outdoor living ideas into reality.
Ask neighbors who they worked with. Search online for local contractors, and check out their websites. Do they do the high-end, quality work you’re looking for? Check out their portfolio pages for inspiration. It’s a bonus if you work with companies that can design and build everything you want.
Contractors are also less busy this time of year, so you may be able to sign a contract before Christmas!
