Custom Home Landscaping Features

Custom Home Trends | October 17, 2019

Utilizing custom home landscaping features can help transform your outdoor space into a place where you can entertain guests year-round. At Jaheny Custom Builders, we understand that the exterior of your home is just as important as the interior. That is why our team has put together a list of some of our favourite custom home landscaping features.

1. Outdoor Kitchen

Having a built-in grill or outdoor kitchen installed can be a great way to use your backyard space any time of year. A custom home builder can design and install a kitchen with plenty of space for prep, cooking, and storage, as well as a seating area for guests. Putting in an outdoor kitchen and eating area can be a great way to add a touch of luxury to your backyard space and any outdoor parties you plan on hosting.

2. Firepit

If you love spending time outside and want to enjoy your backyard well into the fall, installing a firepit might be the ideal custom home landscaping feature for you. No matter what type of firepit you choose to have installed in your backyard—bowl-shaped firepit, stone-ringed firepit, or outdoor fireplace—it can be customized to tie into the aesthetics of your new custom home.

3. Water Feature

Having a water feature installed in the landscaping around your home can be a great way to add a touch of peace and elegance to any space. Whether you choose a small or large fountain, a waterfall, a koi pond, or a pool, a custom home builder will be able to help you figure out the best location for the water feature and the type of landscaping that will surround it.

4. Pergola

Pergolas can add a stunning visual to any garden or backyard space. Consider putting in a pergola with a retractable company to help protect against the wind and rain or allowing climbing vines and flowering plants like roses to grow on the pergola and across its latticed top.

5. Patio

As a classic outdoor element, patios provide the perfect spot for putting in built-in grills and seating areas for guests, making it ideal for hosting outdoor dinner parties. Patios can easily be customized to tie into the aesthetics of your custom home and can be built out of a wide range of materials, from stone to brick and everything in between.
