Is an Outdoor Structure Right for Your Landscape?

A stone patio with an arbor.

For many Georgia homeowners, one of the best parts of warmer weather is being able to spend more time outside. And with Spring officially here, it is time to assess your landscape to see if it has everything you want for making time spent outside the best part of any day. From adding new shrubbery to the addition of an outdoor structure, there are many ways to make your landscape better than ever!

Perhaps one of the best ways to make the most of your home’s landscape is by extending your living areas from inside of your home to delightful outdoor structures that are not only inviting but perfect for any number of outdoor activities. There are many ways to make your landscape and outdoor entertaining more pleasurable, but some of the most popular are through structures such as gazebos, pergolas or arbors.

Choosing an Outdoor Structure for Your Landscape

Virtually any lawn can be made better with the addition of an outdoor structure such as a gazebo, pergola or arbor. However, if you are curious as to which one will best suit your landscape, then first ask yourself a few questions.

1.     What do you want to accomplish?

2.     How much space do you have to work with?

3.     Do you have other lawn elements that need to be considered?

Once you have the answers to these questions, then you are ready for the fun of deciding on elements such as gazebos, pergolas, arbors or any other outdoor structure. All of these structures can be built to meet your lawn’s specific size and can be in nearly any shape. As you think various outdoor structures, consider the following:

·      Arbors are a great way to provide shade, as they are ideal for vine-like plants or roses. They can be built from hardwoods and require the occasional staining, or built from vinyl materials and never need to be painted, stained, or sealing.  Arbor offer a shaded area for everything from grilling out to the addition of a hot tub.

·      Pergolas do not have a full roof, but rather have slats that offer a shady retreat. It can be built as free-standing structure or as an extension of your home to turn an open patio or porch into a shaded space.

·      Gazebos can be any shape but are most commonly octagonal. They are a framed structure with a full roof and flooring. They can be designed to have built in seating and outdoor fans, or even screened in so that your gazebo is as practical as it is pretty.

These are but a few of the options for homes in Atlanta. There are many other structures that can be added to your landscape. Or, if you prefer, used to extend your home’s design.

With our many years of experience building outdoor structures, we have seen numerous landscapes come to life with the addition of one of these outdoor structures. Each one of them lends its own type of style and can be incorporated to work with any landscape and architectural design.

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

    Patrice & David Alpharetta, GA

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”

    Larry S. Atlanta, GA

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”
