Outdoor Living DesignLatest Outdoor Patio Ideas

Outdoor Patio DesignWith 2020 around the corner, homes with yards have taken a practical turn in the last decade – utilizing all the space in ones’ property. Those ‘look-out-at’ backyards versus ‘live-out-in’ landscapes have taken over and they’re here to stay. And why not? With busy lifestyles pressing down on us, when the after work commute is done, ‘relax & unwind’ on the patio for a little slice of heaven. Instead of reaching home to pack up the family and head back out – create a new lifestyle of heading out the backdoor. Invite friends over, spend time with the kids – yep, your family. Create your Dream-Escape landscape. Let’s check out the latest Outdoor Patio Ideas:


You got that right, food rocks! And everyone knows alfresco tastes better! Why eat out down the street when you can eat-your-heart-out in your own backyard? Make sure your landscape design plan includes a big outdoor kitchen with all the conveniences, or a smaller grill island with counter space for fixin’ bar-b-que. Don’t forget a dining space large or small or even a tucked in nook. Many are choosing bars/bar stools in the last few years. Pizza ovens also get a thumbs up for families who love a slice.
