Top Outdoor Home Improvement Ideas From Poynter Landscape for Your Backyard

Here are our team’s top 10 outdoor home improvement ideas for your backyard:

  1. Make Room for an Outdoor Kitchen
  2. Nothing screams outdoor party like an outdoor kitchen. Take things to the next level with a custom outdoor kitchen by Poynter Landscape. From grilling burgers to mixing cocktails, an outdoor kitchen allows you to cook and dine alfresco without constantly going in-and-out the doors to your house. If that weren’t enough, adding one can enhance the value of your property, generating as much as a 100-200 percent ROI.

  3. Install a Swimming Pool or Hot Tub
  4. Beat the summer heat with a refreshing swimming pool or the winter chill with a relaxing hot tub in your backyard. Our in-ground pools include fiberglass, vinyl, and concrete, while our custom hot tubs are available in a variety of styles and sizes.

  5. Create a Comfortable Outdoor Living Room
  6. Let our team of outdoor home improvement pros turn your backyard into an extension of your home with a cozy outdoor living room. Add comfortable furniture, an outdoor rug, and other touches of personal style. Or, perhaps you’d prefer a 3-season room or an all-season sunroom. The possibilities are endless with Poynter Landscape. Give us a call at 636-256-2600 or contact us online.

  7. Create a Tranquil Water Feature
  8. Transform your backyard into a resort-style oasis with a fountain, pond, or waterfall. The soothing sound of running water creates a serene atmosphere for you, your family, and your visitors, and can help mask noise from nearby streets or neighbors.

  9. Add an Outdoor Fireplace or Fire Pit
  10. An outdoor fireplace or fire pit is the perfect way to extend your outdoor enjoyment and ability to entertain. We have a variety of styles and materials – including stone, metal, and concrete – to complement your outdoor decor. A fireplace or fire pit is the ideal place to gather in the spring, fall, and winter.

  11. Choose the Right Outdoor Lighting for Your Space
  12. Keep everyone safe and enhance the beauty of your outdoor space by illuminating walkways, patios, and steps with strategic outdoor lighting. Our team can help you pick out the most environmentally friendly and cost-effective lighting packages, as LEDS use up to 90 percent less energy and last nearly 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

  13. Add a Garden
  14. Whether you have a green thumb or are new to gardening, our gardening experts are happy to help you create a vibrant and thriving garden in your outdoor space filled with lush foliage, colorful flowers, and fragrant herbs. We’ll help choose native plants that thrive in our climate and in your soil conditions.

  15. Have Our Pros Build a Deck or Patio
  16. Our team is happy to help you upgrade your backyard with a stylish deck or patio where you can lounge, dine, and entertain guests outdoors. We take into account your own personal style when designing your deck or patio, including your preferences to the natural look of wood or the durability of composite materials.

  17. Add a Pergola or Pavilion
  18. Having our outdoor home improvement team add a covered section, like one of our pergolas or pavilions, is a great way to help create designed areas for your patio or deck. While they don’t provide complete shelter from the elements, pergolas/pavilions have become popular ways to shade the sun. We have numerous customers who use curtains for additional sun protection.

  19. Incorporate Stone
  20. Whether it’s for a walkway or simply an added space to your pool area, incorporating stone in your outdoor home improvements is the ideal way to add a quaint and rustic accent to your space. Some of the high-quality stone options our outdoor home improvement experts use on outdoor spaces include:

    • Brick
    • Cobblestone
    • Flagstone
    • Fieldstone
    • Granite Pavers
    • Pea Gravel
    • Sahara Granite
    • Limestone
    • Loose-Fill Stone
