The Value of Landscape Lighting

Outdoor lighting optimizes the best of your property by creating a warm atmosphere and providing safe passage for family and guests. Landscape lighting can be your yard's best feature when it is strategically placed and properly installed.
Outdoor lighting illuminates and enhances your most interesting landscape decor. It's a good way to spotlight water features or pathways giving an artistic character to your special features. Lighting is also as much about safety as it is about beauty and ambiance. Being able to see where you are going so you can navigate stairs and walkways is helpful once the sun goes down.
The Luxury of Outdoor Kitchens
From the backyard neighborhood barbecue to the wood-fired ovens of Mediterranean food culture, cooking outdoors is an all-around, time-tested pleasure. There is no better way to expand your living space than to add a high-quality outdoor kitchen. Spending special occasions with family and friends in a fresh-air environment is easier and more convenient when you can do the cooking outside.
Jake's Designs works with homeowners to define their needs and determine the optimum placement for kitchen equipment. With custom grills, pizza ovens, and outdoor refrigerators, you will find yourself spending a lot of time in your chef's oasis. Investing in a top-of-the-line outdoor kitchen increases the value of your home while it provides families with memories for years to come.
The Serenity of Water Features
The unparalleled beauty and serenity of a small mountain spring or a colorful koi pond in your backyard may be one of the smartest landscape design services choice you make. The sound of trickling water is calming and relaxing while it attracts birds and wildlife to your natural abode. The majority of well-designed water features recycle their own water making them as low maintenance as they are sense-pleasing.

The Enchantment of Fire Pits

You can entertain well into the evening hours in style while roasting marshmallows and telling campfire stories. There is no better way to add atmosphere to your outdoor living spaces than with a crowd-captivating fire pit.
You can rely on Jake's Designs to help homeowners determine the best choices when considering the placement, materials, and type of fire pit most suitable for their landscape plans.
