How to Plan Your Dreamscape

How to Plan Your Dreamscape


dreamscapeOnce upon a time, a standard landscape design included bushes, trees, flowers… and maybe a patio or deck. Fast forward to 2019 and it’s a whole new story. Today’s homeowners are embracing this valuable outdoor real estate like never before with innovative ideas that make every square foot count when planning their dreamscape.

So what is a dreamscape?  It’s whatever you want it to be! Take a look at online sources like Houzz and Pinterest and you’ll see hundreds of interpretations of what outdoor landscaping (and living) is all about.  Before you start planning, you need to find what speaks to you. Why? Because your dreamscape will be a unique reflection of your style and vision and a chance for you to express yourself in ways you never imagined.

Just remember, when you’re dreamscaping, the sky’s the limit. There are no preconceived ideas or predetermined plans. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of a stone path leading to a classic English garden… or a thoroughly modern terracing of drought-resistant plantings… or a fun, family-centric outdoor retreat with a cozy stone fireplace and professional outdoor kitchen.

Whatever your dreamscape, it should be about you.  

What you want to see. And what you want to do there. 

If you can dream it… we can do it!

Why not bring the indoors… out?

Whether it’s dining under the stars, entertaining family and friends, or curling up by a crackling fire – think about life as you like it, not to mention increased value for your home. A recent Houzz study indicates that homeowners are increasing their investment in entertaining spaces, outdoor eating spaces and outdoor living rooms as the popularity of outdoor living continues to rise.

For example, homeowners today want to customize their outdoor living/playing/relaxing/entertaining space with the things they love – a cozy stone fireplace, a wall-mounted flat screen TV, an automated sound system controlled by their smartphone – all the creature comforts that can transform their outdoor ‘living room’ into a true extension of their home.

 Also, outdoor kitchens are more popular than ever, often rivaling the scope and scale of evolving kitchen trends thanks to professional appliances, multiple cooking surfaces, ample prep spaces… not to mention built-in grills and smokers with all the bells and whistles.
