Install a new walkway or patioBrick and paver walkways and patios are some of the best ways to update your outdoor space. Walkways create a structure that helps dictate the look and feel of the rest of the yard, while patios are perfect for friends and family. From sweeping paths to entertaining spaces, brick and paver hardscape features are a perfect update for the summer. 

Update your lawn- Patchy grass is one of the first things people notice about a lawn and can be surprisingly difficult to deal with. At SAT Landscape, we can help. Whether you need help fixing and seeding your lawn or want to install a new one, we can make your outdoor space look brand new. 

Add an entertainment area- An entertainment area is a perfect way to update your outdoor space. Adding a fire pit, fireplace or outdoor kitchen gives you a great space to spend time with friends or family. SAT Landscape can easily install a stone paver fire pit in your yard, or connect it to an existing structure. 

Add outdoor lighting- Lighting is a fantastic way to upgrade your landscaping and make it special. Light can be used to accent your home, trees, or other landscaping features of your outdoor space. Professional landscape lighting can improve your outdoor space by highlighting key features while making the space safer and increasing the value of your home. 

Install a water feature- Fountains, spillways, and other water features are a great way to upgrade your landscaping. From the gentle sound of water bubbling to the wildlife it naturally attracts, a water feature helps step up your outdoor space to the next level. 

Plant new shrubs or trees- Plants, trees, and shrubs are the core of your outdoor space and are a great way to update it this summer. Trees provide height and shade to the yard, while shrubs offer structure and texture. 

Build stone or wood walls- Stone and wood walls are a perfect addition to help update your outdoor space. From following the perimeter to compartmentalizing your space, a wall adds structure and organization to your backyard. 

Landscape Design- Landscape design is critical when it comes to updating your outdoor space. From determining the best trees and shrubs to plant, to incorporating features and walkways, the right design can make all the difference.
