Using Custom Outdoor Installations in Your Backyard
Your backyard can be your playground when it comes to your outdoor customization visions. Do you want to showcase areas like gardens and gazebos? Do you prefer open lawns and natural features as the main attractions? Custom landscape architecture and outdoor furniture can help you fashion the backyard experience you want. If you’re searching for ideas, take a look at some of the projects, large and small, CustomMade artisans have completed.
Would you like an exotic look for your patio? These hand-forged glass and iron doors, “Visions of Alhambra,” by Brian Hughes Artist Blacksmith will add a stylized Spanish-Moorish accent to your outdoor lounge area and adjacent indoor sunroom or mudroom.
Perhaps you’d like to get away from the house and create your own version of an outdoor retreat? This Adirondack style lean-to by Phil’s Woodwork might be what you’re looking for. Phil Szymanowski says, “We use it almost weekly with the fire pit for a nice outdoor experience.” You, too, can grill or just relax in rustic style in a lean-to custom built for your family.
If you have a pond in your backyard, a custom bridge can add a dramatic accent to your property and create a unique viewing area for your water feature. Here is a solid mahogany pond bridge restored by Artisans of the Valley. Imagine yourself admiring the greenery and feeding the fishes while standing on that striking red bridge. You can have your own bridge custom made or restored to your specifications.
