Cape Cod is truly one of New England’s most beautiful spaces. If you’re lucky enough to live there and enjoy one of America’s premiere vacation destinations as your address, you want to make the most of it. Outdoor living in Cape Cod includes smart landscape design. Using hedges, ornamental fencing, and strategic plantings, it’s possible to create luxurious, private green retreats you’ll love enjoying with your family and friends.
Here are some things to think about as you plan to take your lawn to the next level:
Masonry features for the lawn are both on trend and surprisingly affordable. Want to have a designated area to enjoy a fire and drinks with your friends? Have your Cape Cod masonry contractor put in a patio with a firepit. It only has to be large enough to accommodate your favorite people. You can use this firepit as the centerpiece of regular weekend gatherings to unwind; it’s great fun for the kids and young at heart to toast marshmallows. Some of life’s greatest conversations can only happen as the flames die down and coals glow in the darkness.
If you like outdoor entertaining, one feature your Cape Cod masonry contractor can create for you is an outdoor kitchen. Some of these features are truly amazing, integrating cooktops, grills, refrigeration and even running water. Everything you need to create an amazing meal is all in one place. If your masonry contractor also happens to do landscape design work, you can rest assured your outdoor kitchen will be ideally placed to be both functional and complimentary to the look of your home.
Gazebos, swings, and other play structures are the favorite features of the family friendly Cape Cod home. Landscape design that creates play areas for children features hardy grass varieties ideal for high traffic areas as well as durable plantings that can stand up to accidental bicycle crashes and more.
