What can we help you create?
Custom Inground Pools & Spas
If you’re trying to decide whether to have an inground pool or not, there are a few things you’ll need to think about. There’s nothing quite like a landscaped inground pool and/or hot tub area. These areas blend into the landscape leaving endless opportunities for creating a beautiful canopy and water effects, very much like a water garden, except you can swim in it. Pittsburgh Stone and Waterscapes’ design consultants “build in” your inground pool and/or hot tub area into our designs so it works for your home and suits your needs. Whether you are considering a new inground pool and/or hot tub for purposes of entertainment or even health reasons, it’s a setting for a great outdoor environment. Why spend money on travel when you can get away in your dream backyard haven!
Pergolas, Patios, & Patio RoofingA pergola is a perfect solution for those who want to retain the openness of their backyard while defining the space, providing an excellent location for hosting parties or enjoying a lazy summer afternoon. And with so many pergola design options, there is a perfect pergola for every taste. For those who desire a classic look, a cedar pergola may be the best option. A handsome, hard-wearing material, cedar adds an unrivaled luxury to your backyard. However, those who desire an even more durable design may prefer a vinyl or metal pergola. Not only do these designs stand up to the elements, but they can prove far more affordable.
Outdoor Kitchens, Bars, & BBQ'sThe Pittsburgh region has taken advantage of its beautiful landscapes and brought cooking and dining outdoors. Your outdoor kitchen can be as simple as an outdoor fireplace and a small patio preparation area. Or, you can create a lavish outdoor living space with built-in grills, outdoor wet bars, patio refrigerators, and full-service outdoor dining areas.
Outdoor living allows you to expand the areas of your home for relaxing and entertaining onto your patio or into your landscape. Have a place where the kids can run and jump without wreaking havoc, and space where the natural scenery of your Pittsburgh landscape complements your outdoor living and outdoor dining spaces. Whether you’re hosting small family get-togethers or huge backyard bashes for the entire neighborhood, a beautiful outdoor kitchen is a perfect venue.
Outdoor FireplacesAs you begin to plan the expansion (or even creation) of the outdoor living space around your home, think beyond the ordinary. How many of your neighbors have an outdoor fireplace?
Fireplaces typically are associated with a home’s interior, as many homeowners add them in a family room, living room or master bedroom. These days, the lines are becoming more transparent between indoor and outdoor by making outdoor living spaces an extension of their home.
An outdoor fireplace adds another area for entertaining, which is similar to having a screened-in porch or parlor inside the home. After a meal, people can take their beverages and move to a cozier spot for more conversation. Depending on the style, an outdoor fireplace can create an intimate spot for a small group of three to four people to gather or a much larger area that can fit and provide warmth for many people. We are creating spaces that incorporate a fireplace under roof for a four-season room concept that allows our customer to entertain year-round.
While Pittsburgh’s warm season is often short, an outdoor fireplace can extend the season. It can make those early spring evenings enjoyable and help push the patio season into late November!
Fire Pits, Fire Rings, & BBQ’sConsidering how a fireplace transforms a room, imagine how a fire pit changes an outdoor living space. By placing an attractive fire pit feature onto your patio, you increase both its ambiance and usefulness. As more homeowners see their patio as a space to host guests, the desire for outdoor kitchens has increased. Move beyond the traditional grill and install an attractive brick bbq. Perhaps you simply want a gathering place. A chiminea or a fire bowl gives your outdoor living space a focal point without costly installation. Want to add some Asian flair? Pagoda fire pits are an Asian-inspired variation that serves the same function. Want to enjoy your outdoor design year-round? Then a patio heater may be the best solution for you.
Landscape LightingWhen developing a landscape design, remember landscape lighting lets you miss out on opportunities to be outdoors after hours. There are countless options available, such as accent lights, spotlights, and path lights. By employing these outdoor lighting options, your outdoor landscape will be an inviting place twenty-four hours a day.
Those who are mindful energy consumers need not worry about installing landscape lights. With abundant solar-powered and LED landscape lights available, outdoor lights do not necessarily affect your electric bills. However, do not assume that solar landscape lighting and low voltage lighting require a sacrifice in the amount of light created. By employing one of the leading Pittsburgh landscape contractors, you can ensure both your electrical and design needs are met.
Waterfalls & PondsPonds and Waterfalls provide any landscape or backyard with beauty and joy! They are probably the most underestimated components for the home and the most misunderstood in the way of maintenance. By adding a water feature, you will add visual and auditory beauty. There is something quite mesmerizing and relaxing about the sight and sound of water. You can add beautiful Koi to your pond or keep it simple with a pondless waterfall. If positioned properly, they can bring beautiful sounds and views from several areas within the house as well as outside the home.
Gardens can be shaped around the perimeter of the waterfall or pond, and depending on the type of pond that is being built, it can even influence the type of plants and flowers that will be included. Pittsburgh Stone and Waterscapes will design the perfect pond and waterfall to work aesthetically within the landscape of your backyard, with or without fish.
Adding a waterfall and/or pond to your yard is the first step to creating your alluring getaway. It makes your yard come to life. It will then become the perfect place to go when you want to escape from the rest of the world!
