Maximizing an Outdoor Living Experience
Commack, Long Island
Communicating Ideas is Vital For a Successful Build
A 3D design ensures the best results for a landscape project
This property had a pre-existing pool that needed to be revitalized and outdoor space that could be more usable. We designed an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, dining area and ample seating. This property also had pre-existing plants and desirable lawn space. Our solution was to create a patio with amenities near the house and use consistent materials for continuity.Learn More About Landscape Design 〉
Combining Landscape Amenities on Your Patio
Designing a patio to feel like an extension of your home
This property had a pool directly behind the house. We created a continous patio to connect the house to the pool. To make the outdoor kitchen and dining area feel like an extension of the house, we placed them near the house.
To be able to make the area feel more like an extension of the home, we built the outdoor kitchen so a pergola could be added above it in the future.Learn More About Patio Design 〉
Defining Spaces with Hardscape Materials

This project places several gathering areas on one elevation. To delineate each one, we changing paver color and angle in each gathering area.Learn More About Patio Materials 〉
Bring the Experience of Cooking Outdoors
The kitchen is often the most popular place to gather.
We built this fully equipped paving stone outdoor kitchen with a full-sized grill, mini-refrigerator and sink. To put the food, drinks and seating all in one place, We added bar seating to the outdoor dining area. This creates a natural gathering place for after work and family weekends.Learn More About Outdoor Kitchen Design 〉
Draw People In with a Fire Pit
Well designed small areas can become the most used
The property had a very small patio with a small table and chairs that weren't used often. We installed a fire pit and connected all of the gathering areas so the fire pit area was more enjoyable to be in.
Now, the fire pit is tucked away in a corner but not hidden from view, so it's a great place to get away from commotion. Plus, a nearby water feature can be heard from the area. The tranquil sounds of falling water combined with the fire pits leaping flames make this area stand out as the retreat we knew it could be.Learn More About Fire Pit Design 〉
Driveway, Curbing and Walkway
Designing for Continuity
Front entry curb appeal frequently sets the tone for the entire property. This property was finished off with a new asphalt driveway, belgian block curbing and front walkway.
Having the same material theme throughout the property builds continuity. The paving stone walkway is the same material as the back patio and is arranged in the same curvilinear style as the backyard.
Similar plants were used throughout the project.Learn More About Walkway Design 〉
Illuminating your Backyard Experience
LED landscape lighting makes your property more appealing
Once your landscape project is built, LED landscape lighting allows you to enjoy it long into the night. The individual fixtures showcase your landscapes beauty one element at a time. The lighting fixtures are installed to illuminate specific areas like the start of a walkway, a specimen tree or outdoor kitchen.Learn More About Landscape Lighting 〉
