Indoor Living—Brought Outdoors
Expanding that indoor comfort to your outdoor patio or backyard space is what most homeowners want these days. Outdoor kitchens, pergolas, fire pits, brick pizza ovens, furniture and big screen TVs are popular trends at the moment. Some homeowners even have our team design full outdoor kitchens. Yes, it can be done! And we can design it for you, too.
The Birds and the Bees
Supporting wildlife preservation is a popular cause these days—and the birds and the bees are certainly included in this effort. This is one reason we see many area residents planting native plants in their gardens. Certain plants benefit pollinators such as bees or birds. Curious? Reach out to Castle Point to learn which native plants might be the best for your backyard oasis.
Brighten Your Space With More Light
Outdoor lights can bring a new ambience to any outdoor space. Our team can install professional landscape lighting that will accentuate your outdoor space, add security and safety and offer a calming mood in the evening. Along these same lines, homeowners are adding space heaters or motorized shades onto pavilions to add warmth and charm.
Birdbaths and Bird Feeders
Adding birdbaths and feeders to help preserve area flocks has become quite popular as well. Plus, there are a handful of shrubs and plants that offer shelter and food to birds. If you’re ready to add some new bird-friendly plants to your landscaping, we can suggest varieties that are helpful to our feathered friends.
