Outdoor Living | Inspired Yard Spaces | Relax & Entertain
In today’s hectic society, people have to spend more time working, just to make ends meet. Unfortunately, this lessens their recreational time. Inspired, tranquil outdoor living spaces can cure that.
Nowadays, the outdoor living and landscape construction business is highly sophisticated and complex.
Thousands of factors come into play. Consideration must be given to hundreds of hardscape and softscape ideas.
There is a myriad of solutions.
Equally, thousands of materials to choose from. This very specialized art-form is often a significant undertaking.
It demands the years of experience. Skill and expertise that the Urbane Landscape Group possesses. We refer to it as “OLE!” (Optimized Lifestyle Enhancement!)
The Reasons Everyone Needs An Outdoor Living Space At Home
Due to the fact people now work more and play less, they demand more out of their own private property. There is a need to spend more time utilizing their backyard.
Since many cannot afford a ‘spa weekend’ regularly, they count on their outdoor living spaces to be a place of solitude, peace, tranquility and relaxation.
After all, the human body requires a certain amount of time to rejuvenate. It also needs a place of sanctuary to do that.
Secondly, but equally importantly, they use it for entertaining family and friends.
Proper Planning & Designing Of The Outdoor Living Space
The time that goes into developing a well-planned, harmonious and integrated outdoor living space for your property, can save thousands of man-hours in maintenance too. As such, it frees up your relaxation time.
Synergistic outdoor living also provides years of enjoyment. As an added bonus, you’ll avoid the costs associated with ever having to redo an inadequately designed and built backyard.

Through communications with an Urbane expert, your ideas are drawn out.
Rigorous and exacting precision is practiced so it all becomes usable in the real world, to benefit your family.
This domain is no place for self-taught greenhorns.
Unsupervised interns, inexperienced part-timers, or amateurs lack the training, expertise and experienced to achieve OLE!
Although the choices for consultants, designers and builders are many – the proven are few. Grades, elevations, drainage and existing on-site elements, all play a critical role in the fundamental development of any new landscape.
Geometric, scaled, precise and detailed drawings are essential fundamentals. They’re critical to every successful landscape and outdoor living project. Assimilating these, results in real estate values being enhanced and problems being avoided. The involvement of professional landscapers and outdoor living experts adds the icing to the cake at your property.

24 Most Common Elements Of Customer Outdoor Living Projects
The projects Urbane has been retained and booked to complete will incorporate a myriad of components and elements.
Almost always, an elegant cobblestone brick-paver driveway greets you upon your approach to the front of the home. Natural stone is often the preferred choice for the front-entry water feature or fountain, to invite you further to the home.
Matching entertaining patio, incorporating a fire-pit or perhaps a fire-table will be planned for and installed, to knock off the chill and provide a warm, inviting, romantic environment.
Using the finest quality Fire Magic equipment, the BBQ Kitchen with all the dining accessories will emphasize the back yard.
As required, a series of terraced stone Belgard brick planters and retaining wall system on the property, create an elevated environment for lush flora.
Fine work mill-work is abundantly showcased in the covered Great Room of the outdoor living space. Frequently, a custom-made louvered roof allows natural light to enter the room. Air can circulate when it’s opened on the hot days of summer. Yet it provides protection from bad weather when closed.
Intricate finishing carpentry accentuates a chiseled stone natural gas fireplace with frontal hearth. Smart, big screen TV is attached on a retractable swivel bracket. It’s carefully positioned above head height on the mantle, so nobody injures themselves.
Each Section Of The Outdoor Living Area Has Purpose
Outer circumference areas of this room is tastefully decorated with inviting, snugly seating.
What a wonderful place to curl up in on a cold winter evening!
This outdoor ‘Great Room’ is completed by a wet bar for entertaining friends and business associates. The ceiling has 2 infrared radiant heaters mounted for the colder days.
Included are usually 2 to 4 Ceiling Fans to circulate the air. These are irreplaceable on both warm and cool evenings or days.
Opposite is the Jacuzzi Tub. Many active clients preferred an aerobic spa pool. Either way, it’s strategically sited just outside the entire structure, for easy access and efficient circulation of family and friends.
On larger properties, we’ve built an open-air solarium. Often, it’s a partially covered sun room setting. Tastefully, the in-ground swimming pool with expansive pool deck is situated in another area of the back yard.
Finishing Touches On The Outdoor Living Space
In alignment with the more athletic and fitness conscious individuals needs, a sport court is incorporated into the design on larger properties, especially acreages.
Complete circulation throughout the entire property is achieved by interlacing it all with serpentine paving stone walkways.
Elevation changes are accommodated by utilizing expansive steps. These are knitted into the walkways to overcome the grade differences in the land.
The plantings in the outdoor living space are carefully planned for and chosen. Utilizing a mix of perennials, shrubs and trees, the objective is to give interesting form and year round color. This is achieved through flowers, foliage and tree bark. The Red Dogwood for example gives a bright red color through its’ bark to the outdoor living space, even through the dead of an icy cold, snowy winter. The plantings in addition to offering beauty, also lend a softening effect to all the hardscapes. This factor is an integral part of the backyard sanctuary effect of the outdoor living space.
Landscape and outdoor living areas Urbane Designers creations are always complimented by auto-irrigation and fertilization. This feature facilitates a low-maintenance environment. It serves to ensure the beauty of striking, year-round groupings of trees, shrubs and perennials.
Evening usage requires the outdoor living space is enriched by an amazing landscape lighting display.
Bordering areas, front and back, are finished off with strategically placed cooling strips of blended Kentucky Bluegrass. A bit of Red Fescue is added for durability. This finishing touch gives barefoot comfort.
Entirely, the asset is encased with stylish Fencing. Usually, it is punctuated by stately stone-clad pillars or columns.
Privacy-screening of columnar plantings complete this personal oasis. These prevent nosy outsiders and intruders from gawking or peering in.
Lastly, the family’s security is assured by the outdoor video-surveillance monitoring system. You’ll rest easy knowing your family is in a safe, secure environment. Options exist for remote monitoring too, if you prefer that. It can be programmed to run around the clock, or at specific intervals, or intermittently, as you choose. Or, you can simply turn it on and off as required, remotely through your smart phone, if you wish.
