Taking a vacation to paradise is a summer goal for many homeowners. Whether that paradise is at the hot, sunny beach, or in the cold, serene mountains, people are always looking for ways to explore and embrace nature’s beauty.

With some thoughtful, smart, designing and planning from landscape design companies like Burkholder, you can walk to your paradise instead of needing to take a flight.
Building a patio is arguably one of the most popular outdoor projects, probably because you are in effect creating an entirely new living space with an unlimited design potential. The most important thing about designing a patio is to plan for the quantity and type of furniture you wish to place on the patio. A dining table for eight takes up more space than a dining table for four. A group of “deep seating” type furniture will need extra space as well. In designing the outdoor living area the sky is the limit, with features available like kitchens, shade structures, LED lighting, spas, fire features and furniture. The team at Burkholder Landscape can guide you through the latest trends in landscape and patio design to help you plan your perfect outdoor getaway.
