In a recent ASLA (American Society of Landscape Architects) survey, fire pits/fireplaces and night lighting topped the landscape wish lists of what homeowners want. But there are two camps when it comes to why homeowners want those elements. There are those who look at the practicality of adding a fireplace (fire pit) or outdoor lighting and those who focus on the aesthetics. Either way, both of these elements are a sound investment in the landscape.
From a practical perspective, fire pits or fireplaces allow homeowners to extend their time outdoors as the days grow shorter. Aesthetically, they provide a homey touch to the otherwise plain patio with the warmth and glow calming even the most hectic days.

There’s a long list of well-known practical reasons for adding night lighting to the landscape, among them safety, security, beautification and value. Aesthetically, architectural features are highlighted bringing the home and landscape together. Certain aspects of the landscape such as textures, colors, art, structures, trees and shrubs which all blend together during the day are eye-catching details in the night.

Our Design-Build Process
During their internships with Southview Design, students move through design/build, landscape care, enhancements, and business/marketing, getting a glimpse into what the green industry has to offer after college.
Trees and shrubs are stressed from the summer heat and drought. Keep watering until the ground freezes.
If you are ready to try something different, these alternatives to sod require less water, less fertilizer, and less effort to maintain.
