Outdoor living spaces will transform your home outdoors into an extension of your home to entertain your family and friends. A place to relax and enjoy your lifestyle!
A great landscape designer offers an huge variety of outdoor living spaces designed to connect your backyard, patios, decks, and plant selection for the best outdoor experience without the usual outrageous costs. You can have a huge impact with low cost if you talk to the right designer. Many landscape architects or designers over do the landscape design. They don’t consider your budget enough to help design a usable space, so you end up with a piece of art you will hang on your wall and never implement.
Depending on your desires, creating your outdoor room can cost anywhere from $5,000, to over $100,000. If all you want is a small patio, a tall fescue lawn area, and a some Anne Arundel county native landscape plantings then you’ll fall on the lower end of the cost range. However, if you’re looking for a backyard solution complete with a garden room, barbecue grill station, a fire pit with a covered patio with a pavilion or pergola, custom stone work, you’re budget will need to rise dramatically. Custom hardscape projects like this can be expensive, but creating dream backyards will add to the value of your home.
In the past few years people are starting to use their backyards as an extension of their home. On many of our dream backyard landscaping projects they are approached as if they were typical additions. Homeowners are usually more willing to spend money on outdoor living amenities like an outdoor kitchen because they improve their lifestyle by providing opportunities to spend time with friends and family.

Brandon, from Stewartlandscape.com, states that “To create your outdoor living space, hardscaping is often the most expensive single line item in a landscaping design budget. Therefore, it is important to select your paving materials wisely. Often you can swap an expensive material for a more affordable one. If you like the look off flagstone but not the cost, try concrete or brick pavers.”
Remember that all of these features don’t have to be installed all at once, we can take your landscaping project in budget friendly chunks. Start with the foundation to any garden room, Your hardscaping (patios walkways and decks) and plant installation. A Pavillion or Pergola or built-in grill or a complete outdoor kitchen can be added down the road.
