Ready To Get Started On Your Dream Landscape?
Show Off Your Cooking Skills With An Outdoor Kitchen
America's barbecue culture is well-known and well-revered especially when it comes to firing up the grill. But diehard grill masters know it is only part of creating a satisfying outdoor meal for family and friends. You don't have to miss out on the fun by going back and forth to your indoor kitchen to prepare food. Turning your backyard into a truly functional and comprehensive entertainment space is easier than you might think. Here are a few benefits to adding an outdoor kitchen:
- Expand your living spaces — There is no better way to increase the usable space in your home than by including an outdoor kitchen in your landscaping plans. You can enjoy the fresh air while you celebrate, socialize, and dine in style.
- Save on utility bills — You can stop keeping your air conditioning system on overdrive to keep your house cool while you cook. With the right outdoor kitchen appliances, you can bake, broil, and grill without having to deal with the cooking smells and the heat.
- Customized versatility — Jake's Designs works with homeowners to design your outdoor kitchen with your unique backyard space in mind. You can customize your layout and choose the appliances that best fit your goals and your needs.
- Increase your home's value — A professionally installed outdoor kitchen is a good investment. Exterior spaces for cooking and entertaining are a growing trend adding immediate curb appeal and value to your property should you ever decide to sell.
You can count on Jake's Designs to explore all your outdoor kitchen options including determining the optimal placement, expert construction, and choosing the best quality and weather-resistant appliances. You might find yourself showing off your cooking skills in your Kissing Camels backyard in no time at all.
Create Lasting Memories Around Your Custom Fire Pit
Sitting around an outside fire pit isn't only about keeping yourself warm on cool evenings. It is an irresistible beacon of inviting comfort and cozy relaxation. Fire pits light up the night when the sun goes down. They offer the perfect focal point for socializing or spending quality time with family and friends under the stars. It is a year-round outdoor living feature you will be drawn to again and again.
Fire pits can either be wood-burning or gas-burning, each offering different benefits and drawbacks. The landscaping team at Jake's Designs is experienced at determining the best type and placement in your yard for a fire pit while keeping safety and aesthetics in mind. You will soon be basking in the glow of the crackling, dancing flames where the ambiance is just right for quiet conversation or solitary meditation.
Start a Pizza Night Tradition With Your Own Pizza Oven
Pizza night is sure to become a favorite family tradition no matter what day of the week you choose. A pizza oven is a year-round outdoor kitchen accessory you will be glad you added to your plans. In just minutes, you can be serving authentic, Italian-style pizza fresh out of the oven. You might find your neighbors making an excuse to stop by and sample a slice.
Outdoor pizza ovens are surprisingly versatile too. Give your vegetables a smoky flavor or cook salmon on cedar slabs for out-of-this-world, uncommon goodness. Jake's Designs has years of experience designing and installing outdoor pizza ovens in the Colorado Springs area.
Make Your Patio the Centerpiece of Your Backyard
They say the kitchen is the heart of the home but the patio is often the centerpiece of your backyard escape. Well-designed patio spaces provide a smooth transition from the inside of your house to your outdoor retreat. It is one of the best ways to extend your home's square footage into awesome indoor-outdoor living spaces. Jake's Designs is your custom patio specialist offering limitless design and style possibilities to meet your goals and fulfill your dreams.
Patios are not one-size-fits-all projects. They can be made of a variety of materials including flagstone, concrete, or brick. Patios often serve as the foundation of a home's landscape design transforming what once might have been bare dirt or grass into usable space. Individual homeowners have different needs and property configurations. Jake's Designs is happy to help you determine the optimum patio placement for your home and to work with both size and budget considerations.
Illuminate Your Landscape With Strategic Lighting
You can make sure your landscape doesn't just disappear after the sun has set with professionally designed outdoor lighting. Exterior lighting has numerous practical benefits and applications even as it highlights the unique character of your landscape. Here are a few:
- Pathway Lighting — Increase the safety of walkways and stairs after dark while enhancing their beauty with well-placed lights.
- Porch and Patio Lighting — Welcome home or entertain family and guests with warm and inviting porch or patio lighting.
- Pool and Water Feature Lighting — Give water features a unique and magical atmosphere with the right lighting.
