The American Society of Landscape Architects was asked to rank the most popular outdoor design elements for 2018 and here is the list they came up with. I love it!
#1 Fireplaces and Firepits
Is there anything better than relaxing by a blazing fire? These two design elements allow you to enjoy your outdoor spaces longer into the fall.
#2 Outdoor Lighting
Lighting is an important design element outdoors as it creates a nuance depending on the style you use. Perhaps a warm glow is desired for a relazxing vibe. Use it however you like to get the effect you want.
#3 Outdoor Dining
Designing an outdoor dining space extends your indoor living to the outdoors. Make it yours! Click the picture for my pinterest board for more ideas.
#4 Outdoor furniture

#5 Outdoor Kitchens
More people are entertaining outdoors, so what better way to bring the party outside than to have all food prep areas outside? Click the pic for some great examples.

I moved to the Lake Norman area in 1998. I remember thinking when we first drove in that this was the prettiest place I'd ever seen. After buying our first home, I decided I'd love to help others live in this beautiful place. I am a graduate of the University of Alabama and got my real estate license in 2006. I've lived all over the South: Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas and finally settled on North Carolina. I've never looked back! I love scary movies, cooking, letterboxing, reading and swimming. I specialize in homes with pools and gourmet kitchens. I also co-own HouseMaster of Lake Norman, a home inspection company. This allows me to offer all of my listings a free pre-inspection! This is an invaluable tool to prevent surprises in your transaction.
