Creating the Perfect Vancouver Patio Space

Categories: Backyard Landscaping, Landscape Design | January 9, 2018

At Vandenberg’s Landscape Design, we know that creating the perfect Vancouver patio space can be overwhelming for some homeowners. That is why we offer a wide range of landscape design services that are specifically designed to help homeowners create the perfect outdoor space for their specific needs.

Consider Function

The first step in designing any patio space is considering the overall function of the space and what the space will be used for. Will the patio space be used all year long or just in the warmer months? Will the space be for relaxing or for entertaining family and friends? Determining the main function of the patio space will help guide the elements that should be included in the design.

Choose Furniture and Elements Wisely

When it comes to choosing the right furniture and design elements for your new patio space, it is important to try to choose items wisely. Take the time to consider each element you are thinking about adding in order to ensure that it fits into the overall function of the space. Some of the many patio elements that can be added to help create the perfect Vancouver patio space include:

Patio Furniture

No matter what the patio space is being used for, furniture is an essential part of creating a comfortable environment for family and friends. Make sure to choose furniture that is made for outside use and is constructed from a long-lasting material that can stand up to all types of weather. Unpredictable weather can easily break down many materials and cut down their lifespan, so it is extremely important to buy good quality patio furniture.

Outdoor Kitchen

Adding an outdoor kitchen to a patio space is a great idea for those who love to cook and dine outside in the summertime. Outdoor kitchens can be fully equipped with a wide range of features, such as:

  • Grill (charcoal, gas, smokers, freestanding, or built in)
  • Pizza oven
  • Countertops
  • Sink
  • Mini fridge
  • Bar

Outside Patio Lighting

Outside lighting is the perfect way to create the right tone or ambiance for the patio space. With a wide range of lighting options to choose from, lighting up a patio space has never been easier. Choose from hanging decorative lights, torches, or lanterns for a touch of whimsy or hanging chandeliers to create a more elegant space.

Water Feature

One of the most relaxing elements that can be added to a patio space is a water feature. The sound of running water can help create a soothing effect that will make the backyard landscaping feel more like an oasis. Water fountains and water features come in a wide range of types and styles, making it easy to find the perfect fountain for any size patio space.

Outdoor Fire Pit

Fire pits are a great addition to backyard landscaping, as they can help create the perfect place for entertaining guests all year long. While they can help create a stronger ambiance for any space, fire pits are also the perfect place for conversations, roasting marshmallows, or sipping beverages.
