Landscape Solutions - For Creative Outdoor Living Solutions

Living in North Carolina provides an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors more than in many other parts of the country. We have long periods of warm weather and short periods when it is too cold to enjoy the outdoors, unless we are skiers. Furthermore, our homes have now become family-central! Our homes serve as office, school, shopping headquarters, restaurant, gym, and online social meeting place. Outdoor living has taken on an important role in our everyday life.

Since our world has become smaller and our homes a bit more…shall we say “lived-in,” everyone is looking for ways to leave home safely. Outside activities with our families has become more important than ever. Now, our outdoor property can become an extension of our indoor space.

Many people are now investing in some amenities that can enhance relaxation time, add functionality to a small kitchen and provide entertainment areas to just “chill” with the family.

Landscape Solutions & Design has the expertise to work with any budget and any ideas that you may want to add to your outdoor living space. Utilizing your outdoor areas will improve the functionality, appearance and value of your home. You’ll not only have years of enjoyment, but when it comes time to sell, you will find that your enhancements have increased the value of your home.

Below are some of the elements that you may want to consider adding to your property, so that you can enjoy some outdoor living very soon.

Fire Pits

Landscape Solutions Fire Pits

Fire pits serve many purposes. They can provide a place to relax at the end of the day while watching the dancing flames. Or, your children may enjoy roasting marshmallows after dinner, almost all year-round! Having a fire pit extends the season during which you can enjoy spending time outside. That is one of the reasons for the recent trend toward adding a fire feature to a deck or any outdoor area.

The experts here at Landscape Solutions & Design have the skills to create a fire pit area in just the right location in your backyard to suit your lifestyle. We can recommend the appropriate materials that will complement the style and colors of your home. Before the project begins, we can show you what the finished product will look like, using our state-of-the-art software.

A fire pit can provide hours of relaxation and fun for the entire family. It adds to your entertaining space and can be integrated with any outdoor living design. A fire feature is something to enjoy most of the year here in North Carolina.


Many of our clients are adding outdoor fireplaces to extend the use of their outdoor living area throughout the winter. A fireplace can keep your family and friends warm on a cold night and add to the ambiance of any gathering. The glow of the fire can make you feel warm just looking at it!

Another design that provides additional functionality is to add a pizza oven within the fireplace structure. This can become a stand-alone feature or enhance an outdoor kitchen area.

Some people make an outdoor fireplace the center of their entertainment area. Another way to enhance and extend the use of the space, is to add a section above the fireplace for an outside TV or movie screen. This adds an entirely new dimension to your property and you will quickly become the envy of your neighbors!

Our experts can work with you to design the appropriate size and the perfect materials to complement the rest of your home. There is a wide range of finishes that you can use to add texture to your space and enhance the look of your outdoor living area. Brick and stone are the more popular choices, but our experts can show you a variety of options available.

When working with our designers, you will be guided through the selection process, so that the size, materials and location of your fireplace will be precisely what you envision.

Water Features

In central NC, water features are becoming one of the most popular focal points to add to any property. Based on the size and topography of your property, there are many options available. From a pondless waterfall or koi pond to a stream or fountain, these elements are aesthetically pleasing and naturally relaxing. Throughout time, water has served to support life and to provide endless hours of relaxation.

It is no longer necessary to drive to the coast and rent a house on the beach to have a spectacular water view any time of the day or night. Imagine relieving stress by sitting near your water feature reading a book or just relaxing with family or friends. This outdoor living thing just may catch on!

Work with our designers to create exactly the right feature for your property. Perhaps you have enough room for both a pond and a waterfall, or a fountain and a stream. Any combination is possible…dream it and we will create it.

Outdoor Grills

With families trying to spend more time outdoors, our grilling skills are really improving! No more are we content with a small, portable grill outside the kitchen door! Now, we want a full-scale grill with all of the bells and whistles! Built-in thermometers, easy-clean surfaces, ice buckets nearby, high-quality, broad grilling areas that can become ovens, provide indirect heat or high flames are all on our wish list.

Outdoor grills can be used as part of an outdoor kitchen (see next section) or can serve as the only outdoor cooking surface. Landscape Solutions & Design can create as large or as small a cooking area as you want or need.

Since many of the cooking shows now spend a lot of time teaching grilling techniques, outdoor grills have become a much-desired addition to our outdoor living spaces. We are fortunate in North Carolina to have the long seasons of mild weather that make it possible to utilize our outdoor grilling skills for most of the year.

There is a huge variety of grills and grilling equipment available. We look forward to working with you to create a place where you can sharpen your grilling skills and impress your family and friends!

Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor Kitchen

Grilling isn’t the only cooking function that can be expanded to the outdoors. Depending on your lifestyle, an outdoor kitchen can be anything from a grill and a table and chairs to a full-scale, fully-equipped kitchen. Your outdoor living can take on a whole new meaning, when you are no longer confined to an indoor kitchen.

Any appliance or amenity that you have indoors (and some that you don’t!) can be included in an outdoor kitchen. Ovens, gas stoves, refrigerators, sinks, warming drawers and storage space can all be incorporated into a full-service outdoor kitchen with its own decor!

No more does the chef have to miss out on the outdoor fun! Put an end to heating up the entire house when cooking a large meal. Provide an “overflow” cooking area, so that holiday meals don’t strain every appliance in your kitchen…not to mention the dining area!

No matter the size of your family, we can help create the perfect solution to all of the above scenarios. Outdoor living was never so great! Outdoor kitchens are the perfect solution to extending your cooking and dining areas. It also elevates the enjoyment level for the chef and the sous chefs that are helping out and learning to cook!

Our Landscape Solutions designers will create, along with you, the perfect outdoor kitchen to suit your home and family. You will enjoy kicking up your cooking area a notch or two! And, as a homeowner, you can appreciate the increased value of the investment in your home. An outdoor kitchen is one of the elements that buyers appreciate, since it provides both aesthetic appeal and functionality.

Ponds/Pondless Waterfalls

Pondless waterfalls are exactly what the name implies…a re-circulating waterfall that doesn’t have a pond at the base. Instead, they are created with an in-ground reservoir of water that is pumped up into the waterfall path. The water then flows back down into the reservoir.

Adding a pond or a pondless waterfall to your outdoor living space or anywhere on your property adds tremendous ambiance to your home. They can serve as the focal point for your yard or the front of your property to provide a unique aesthetic appeal to your landscape design.

Not only are these water features visually pleasing, they are stress relievers, as well! There is nothing like relaxing or reading your latest book selection while outdoors listening to the sound of falling water or gazing at a lovely pond. Perhaps you would even include some fish or lilies to further enhance the scene.

While you’re at it, why not add another feature to your backyard and include a gazebo?

Landscape Solutions has experts in designing the perfect outdoor living elements and creating water features is one of our many quality services.
