Outdoor living areas are a concept that became popular in our area in the 1990’s. As we had developed into surburbias over the previous decades, we found that we further removed ourselves from nature. This unknowingly left us deficient in our need to get out and enjoy the outdoors like we used to as kids. Before we knew it, we were surrounded by track homes, and pavement for miles and miles. We would have wait to take weekend trips or vacations to get out and see the countryside and unwind, which with the pressures of work, seem to be less and less often.
By creating Outdoor Living areas for our customers, they can come home, get out of their business attire, change into comfortable clothes, walk outside and sit on the seat wall by the patio overlooking the water feature, let the sound of the rushing water enhance their auditory senses and put them at rest, allow the fragrance of the Fragrant Tea Olives to perk their sense of smell and fill their lungs with the sweet smell of the air, the vibrant colors of the different plants put them in a cheerful mood. Watching the koi gracefully swim in the pond hypnotize them and make them forget the day’s stress. Watching the birds fly down from the trees to get a drink of water from the stream and watching the humming birds and butterflies feed off the nectar in the flowers can make them feel like they out in the middle of the country. Helping them get the kids to peel away from the TV and their I-Pads and come out and enjoy nature with them as a family and spend the evening into the darkness when they start a fire and cook their dinner over an open campfire, then watch as the landscape lights kick on and uplight the trees to create a new interest and sense of tranquility while the kids make Smores. What a peaceful way to end their day….and they didn’t have to use their vacation time or even leave the comforts of their own home to enjoy it.
We can design and build your outdoor living areas turn-key which prevents you from selecting, hiring, managing, and coordinating several companies. We are fortunate to have the knowledge and capabilities of being the only full service outdoor contracting company serving the Charlotte and surrounding area. Outdoor Life is not just a company, it is a way of life for us that we love to share with our customers.
