At this time of year, everyone is consumed with finding the perfect gift for everyone on their list. Often spouses are the most difficult to buy for. What about the gift of a beautiful landscape? Being that we live in Chicago and the surrounding area, many homeowners don't think about Landscape Desing at this time of year. However, the gift of a great landscape will be enjoyed for a lifetime and winter is a great time to get started on the design process. Chicago Landscape Design has come a long way since concrete patios and pink rock were in fashion, perhaps the gift of a new landscape is the perfect gift for your family this year.
Built In Grills, Custom Fire Pits and Landscaping Make the Perfect Gift for Your Family!
For those of us obsessed with our lawn, HGTV, grilling, or just lounging around on the patio, the gift of a new landscape component will be a truely welcomed surprise. The explosion in popularity of outdoor living products has allowed homeowners to make their outdoor spaces uniquely usable and designed to suit their lifestyle and needs. Below are some "gift ideas" for that special someone on your list this Holiday Season! At The Barn we would be happy to create a design to meet your loved one.
Here are the top gift ideas from our Landscape Design Team!
- Custom Fire Pit - Let's start with the Dad of the family. Custom fire pits are on many Wish Lists but everyone will enjoy having a custom designed fire pit built into your patio or as a stand alone component of your landscape. Firepits can be designed using natural stone or pavers and burn on gas or wood. A custom firepit is a great addition for any familt that loves entertaining or wants to extend their outdoor living season.
- Built In Grill - Is Dad complaining that his grill is falling apart or is it simply too messy and dirty? If it's time for a new grill, consider a new built in grill. We can add in a bar and cooler component as well, for family and friends to enjoy.
- Blue Stone Patio - If you have an old, cracked concrete patio this is the year to let the Barn replace it with a natural stone patio. An outdoor patio will be enjoyed by the whole family and add value to your home.
- Pergola - Pergolas add beauty and shade to a landscape. Consider a custom built pergola for your wife this Christmas. Plant some blooming vines and she will love the gorgeous setting all summer long.
- Landscape Lighting - Landscape Lighting makes a great gift because if planned correctly, it can be scaled to as much or as little as fits your budget. Start with uplighting the specimen tree in your yard or light the home and add on as needed.
- Garden Design - Our designers would be happy to do a garden design to replace an existing landscape bed or create a new garden design for any area of your landscape.
