Your backyard is no exception when it comes to brainstorming dream worthy home designs. With these helpful ideas, you can turn your Calgary backyard into an outdoor space thats ready to be shown-off all year around!

BBQ in Style With an Outdoor Kitchen & Bar

Take a step up from the traditional barbeque and flipper with your very own outdoor kitchen and bar. No more will you have to yell out  to your significant other from the backyard to bring you the barbeque sauce from the fridge. Gone are the days where you have to leave your guests to get drinks from the kitchen inside. Why not kick it up a notch and install a beer tap too? That way you never have to miss a second of sunshine to quench your thirst. C’mon, this is your dream Calgary backyard we’re talking about!

Your full outdoor kitchen includes:

  • Outdoor Barbecue
  • Beer Taps
  • Refrigerator
  • Gas Hook-Ups
  • Lighting
  • Comfortable Outdoor Seating
  • Outdoor Bar

Create your own Personal Oasis with Unique Water Features

Ok, so your beer is cold, your outdoor fridge is stocked… What’s next?

Well, the next landscaping feature necessary to achieve your luxurious, dream backyard is water features. Now, on the surface, water features don’t sound that exciting. But trust me here. Water features can make a so-so backyard into a zen, calming, magical place of relaxation. I’m talking about colourful Koi gardens and peaceful waterfalls.

Sick of hearing your neighbours through the fence? Look no further. Gurgling rocks and the soothing sound of your waterfall will drown your neighbours’ voices into sweet nothingness. Imagine waking up and sipping your coffee from your patio chair, with only the relaxing, trickling sound of water flowing through your own backyard oasis.

Water features include:

  • Gurgling Rocks
  • Ponds
  • Waterfalls
  • Koi Ponds
  • Pond-Less Waterfalls 

Bring in a Focal Point with a Custom Pergola

With the serenity of your beautiful koi pond and the convenience of your outdoor refrigerator, beer tap and bar, we guarantee you won’t be spending much time indoors. This means a LOT of sunshine. For us Calgarians, we need as much vitamin D as we can get, but this doesn’t mean we don’t need time in the shade too. 

A pergola is a key landscaping feature to get the perfect balance of shade and sun exposure in your backyard. I’m not talking about a run of the mill, cookie cutter, one size fits all structure. I am talking about a fully customized, unique pergola that perfectly fits and complements your yard. Your pergola will become the focal point of your backyard and the  hub of your family’s personal oasis.

Customizable options include:

  • Material: Timber or Stone
  • Extra Lighting
  • Fireplacing
  • Hammocks

Amp Up Comfort & Ambience with an Outdoor Fireplace

Your pergola is built and provides the perfect coverage from the hot Calgary sun. Your family gathers under the pergola in the central hub of your backyard, where memories are made. Now, you might be wondering what landscaping features could possibly make your dream backyard even more relaxing and comfortable? Two words for you: Outdoor fireplace. There is truly nothing that makes an evening more special than the gentle, familiar crackle of a warm fireplace. You and your friends and family will remain cozy and warm long after the sun has set. The soft glow from your fireplace will create an ambience that your guest won’t soon forget.

Custom outdoor fireplaces can be:

  • Wood Burning
  • Gas
  • Electric
  • Propane
  • Portable
  • Stone

Unify and Connect all Elements with a Professionally Designed Garden

The final landscaping feature required to perfect your dream backyard is… Drumroll please… A beautiful, luscious, and colourful garden! I know what you’re thinking. A garden, really that’s it? Yes, a garden but not just any garden. This garden is professionally designed by fully certified Horticulturists, meaning that it will not only be visually stunning, but will be made of strategically selected plants, flowers, and trees that are suitable to Calgary’s climate. Your professionally designed garden will pull together each and every landscaping element of your dream backyard and create a sense of unity and continuity.

It’s also worth mentioning that you’ll be able to enjoy the vivid array of lush, vibrant flowers and jungle-like greenery without any of the stress. That’s because your dream backyard includes a dream garden that is fully maintained for you, so you don’t have to lift a finger (or green thumb), unless you want to of course.

Garden design options include:

  • Certified Horticulturists
  • Professional Gardening
  • Customized Garden Maintenance
  • Arborist & Planting Service
  • Seasonal Cleanup & Prep
