blog design photo Unique Outdoor Rooms You Want to Live In

When it comes to Backyard Living, there are Design Star wannabes and Design Star Masters. What does design have to do with backyards? Everything. Outdoor Living Space Ideas have come a long way Baby. They’ve come the furthest over the years – than any other area of your home. Stepping out the backdoor into unique, livable outdoor rooms takes thoughtful planning . . . design planning, that is.


Our Landscape Reveal this week shows just how important design can be in a backyard makeover. Taking a tired-overgrown lawn+shrubs+trees and transforming them into a useable outdoor family room . . . doubles your living space. Below, the development from exhausted backyard, to design plan, to finished outdoor living space:

Your Outdoor Living Room! One that looks and feels as good as the inside.  The proof is in the people. Where do they head for cozy comfort? Out the back door! Where fresh air mixed with grill smells are part of the draw. Spread out and get your relax on. Invite friends, family, neighbors. The Satchwell makeover is fabulous and well worth getting a party started . . . click into the portfolio and be sure to check out the ‘during construction’ photos under the gallery slider to watch the start to finish.
