Seating is often overlooked when planning your backyard renovation. It is, however, key to creating the ultimate outdoor living experience. Custom built-in seating is currently all the rage in landscape design and it’s not difficult to see why. Say goodbye to rickety old chairs and hello to sleek outdoor seating. Not only is built-in seating more aesthetically pleasing, but it’s also more functional. In fact, concrete seating can accommodate more people without taking up as much space in your yard. Throw in some plush cushions and a warm blanket for extra comfort! This feature also allows you to customize your seating to your space. Is your fire pit long and rectangular? Install built-in seating that stretches along side it. Want to define a space? Build an L-shaped seating area. Get creative with it!

For you next landscape renovation, think of custom designs! What better way to create a space you and your family will enjoy than to customize it to your unique style?
