A Chic Water Wall

The water wall is a stunning water feature that pumps water to the top of a structure and allows it to trickle or spill over the surface into a pondless reservoir. These are commonly made using glass, or metal or copper sheets that can be supported by stylish masonry pillars. Alternatively, you could create a more dynamic water feature by using a thin, stacked flagstone wall, which gives the water a textured surface to flow down. 

Water walls make exceptional privacy walls too—and can be considered much more elegant and interesting than wood privacy fencing. Use a water wall to create a side-yard dining nook or yoga space, and don’t forget lighting that will make it into a show-stopper after dark!

A Cozy Fire Nook

Everyone loves to gather around a fire pit to ward off the evening chill. But, very often, while the warmth of the fire heats our faces, our backsides remain cold. Solve this problem and add comfort to a fire area with a high-backed masonry seat wall that surrounds the fire pit. The high wall will help hold the heat in and add comfort. And with the addition of a couple of pillows, this seating arrangement can be very cozy. It could also be a much more space-efficient solution for surrounding a fire pit rather than trying to gather several patio-cluttering lounge chairs every time a fire is lit.

Party Central

If your clients already have an outdoor fireplace or are thinking of installing one, suggest adding a wood-fired pizza oven to the structure. This will become the hub of outdoor living! If your clients prefer a stainless steel pizza oven, you can incorporate that into a fireplace area with a masonry base, or add it to an outdoor kitchen.

Upcycled Fountains

Consider the possibility of repurposing leftover pavers or wall units for parts of a waterfall or fountain. Add veneer to a concrete block structure by using a mix of new and repurposed materials for a custom water feature. These fountains can be large or small, and can be placed pretty much anywhere—by the patio, at the front door, or even in the middle of the lawn. 

Terraced Luxury

A sloped lot can become a magical backyard getaway. The size of the terraces will depend on the slope and the intended use, but it’s an opportunity to create visually dynamic multi-level living where each zone or “room” has a dedicated purpose. Now that many people are working from home, this can include a more private remote office for those who enjoy working outdoors but don’t want to be surrounded by a lot of action. Terraces can feature mini-patios covered in beautiful pavers or feature gardens. 

Vertical Interest in a Flat Backyard

Even a lot that’s pancake-flat can be made more interesting by using masonry walls that define spaces and create vertical interest on a smaller scale. Outdoor living doesn’t have to be two-dimensional. Try elevating a cooking/dining space just one or two steps above a lounge area for a stunning, upscale look.
