Reaching your outdoor living goals Four areas to think about prior to the design

By Snow Creek Landscape Services

There is no doubt that many around the world are eagerly embracing a new year. As a local landscaping company in Western North Carolina, we’ve seen a definite increase of homeowners that were looking to expand their outdoor living space. Whether to host small gatherings or just have additional space away from the family, the need to fully utilize every inch of one’s property is trending - and rightfully so! Creating more functional outdoor spaces on your property is an excellent goal to have. It increases property value (if done correctly), the amount of usable living space, and promotes an overall healthy outdoor experience. What’s happening on the property currently? Many clients call us with an idea in their head, but aren’t comfortable with the process to reach their goal. During our consultation sessions, we often discuss the steps it takes to get their dream landscape, which sometimes means heavy modification of the current land. The best way to really start an outdoor project, is to really understand the property. The topography of your property is extremely important in a landscape design, as proper drainage and grading is essential for the safety of you and your home. The best design and implementation will successfully promote water moving away from any foundation or high traffic area. Additionally, retaining walls and slope management can provide extra usable space if your property isn’t flat, which is common in WNC. The amount of sun and shade an area receives will significantly impact the microclimate that is your property. Breaking down your area into four categories: full sun, partial shade or deep shade; will help you identify the plants that will thrive or struggle in those areas. 20 Fine Homes & Design | Winter 2021 Additionally, you can alter your property to either enhance one or the other to tailor to your preferences. What’s my overall theme of my project? The theme of your design is ultimately the driving force behind your investment. It’s the reason you’re taking time, money and energy to alter the land. A theme could be the need to host larger outdoor parties, or the desire to brighten up the neighborhood with seasonal colors.

What do I want the most out of my investment? Being in the industry for over 30 years, we’ve worked with clients at all stages of home renovation projects. More often than not, we have to really center people back to the beginning steps and overall process. After you developed your theme and style, it’s great to look at the each step it will take to achieve your goals.

Once you recognize what’s important, you can allocate resources, like time and money, appropriately. If a In most cases, the outdoor area should enhance and reflect retaining wall is needed to achieve a much desired certain aspects of your home.

While your landscape design is meant for you to enjoy, take into account who will be enjoying the property in the future. Privacy is very much an individual preference for many If you see yourself selling the property eventually, think homeowners. For some, they don’t want to hear, see or about how that could translate to a new homeowner down interact with their neighbors, while others are an open the road. If you plan on growing a family in the home, think book. of future plans that might involve more activities. A common design is more about aesthetics in the front yard and privacy in the back.

Winter 2021 | Fine Homes & Design 21 If you are looking to create more of a private area in your outdoor living space, there are ample opportunities for both natural and custom built fencing. With a natural fence out of trees and shrubs, we typically suggest layering to create depth within your yard. Utilizing fencing material in a landscape design is also a great way to take advantage of your property, especially if you have kids and pets. If you’re looking to invest in your landscape this year, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team of experts.

Patios, Pavers and Fire Pits...Oh My! Hardscapes Make Outdoor Living Easy

Living in Asheville and WNC gives homeowners one luxury that many in other parts of the country don’t have, outdoor living you can enjoy almost year-round. Whether you’re looking for a patio with old-world charm, a driveway that will give you mass curb appeal, or a walkway with contemporary flair pavers offer a wide variety of colors and styles to select from. Pavers have become a very popular choice for backyard patios, driveways and walkways are pavers in the past ten years. They provide a beautiful, custom paving solution that installs quickly and is ready for use as soon as the project is complete. Pavers allow for a lot of design creativity too, and can be used on small or large patios. Patio pavers are made of concrete, brick or stone and the real draw of pavers for homeowners is that they can be laid in striking patterns. Pavers come in contemporary modular, traditional cobble and brick pavers, and options with the look and texture of natural 30 Fine Homes & Design | Winter 2021

stone patio pavers. And of course, you can use natural stone but that can be more expensive. Many paving stones can also support vehicular loads to create stunning driveways. And the cherry on top, they last forever, much longer than standard concrete...with a much more luxurious look. And paver stones are not just to walk or drive on, they are used extensively for retaining walls, seating, firepits and fireplaces. A professional hardscape designer and contractor can assist in tying all that in together too. Fire Pits and Fireplaces: Nothing says outdoor living like sitting around with family and friends enjoying a fire in your own backyard. And designing an outdoor living room or outdoor kitchen with modular pavers is significantly faster and less expensive than building a similar design from scratch on site. Companies like Belgard or Techo-Bloc for example, are built in a controlled factory setting and shipped in pieces to be quickly installed in

a matter of hours by an experienced crew, where similar designs by scratch could take weeks to construct. What this means to you is less disruption to your lifestyle and less installation cost too. Fire pits are on fire (no pun intended) here in Asheville since Covid. “We are doing more firepits now than ever before, and I don’t see that slowing down anytime soon, even after Covid is gone” said Nick Cardillo of The Yardfathers, a Belgard authorized contractor here in Asheville. Outdoor Kitchens Kitchens are the heart of our homes, but an outdoor kitchen, is a well-defined space that craves a culinary experience, coziness, functionality and good times. Undoubtedly, humans have an affinity for nature. And what better way to get from the indoors to an outdoor living space than with a professionally designed and built outdoor kitchen? Depending on the time of the year or a particular season – the outdoors has a mesmerizing charm that is enjoyed by everyone, so why not move the kitchen outdoors! Depending on your personality and design style – you could choose from a simple minimalist outdoor kitchen to a rustic farmhouse style or even a contemporary feel. And of

course, sturdy decorative patio pavers are an important aesthetical element in your outdoor living space to give you a solid foundation for a great outdoor kitchen and living experience. Retaining Walls

That’s nothing to sneeze at, and it should definitely make you think twice about putting off your property’s landscaping and hardscaping needs.
