They provide warmth, light, a cooking source, and ambiance, making them a natural gathering spot for socializing, entertaining, and relaxation. People are drawn to the campfire-like atmosphere, and before you know it, there will be story-telling and laughter. A fire pit can also serve as an important focal point in your outdoor landscape design. When placed where it can be easily seen from your interior living space, it can be enjoyed from the indoors as well.
Back Yard Structure Designs
Adding an outdoor structure to your outdoor living area can add significant value to your home. Whether it’s a gazebo, pergola, trellis or other area for entertaining outdoors, an outdoor structure will extend your home outside, adding square footage onto your house.

Retaining Walls Design and Construction
Retaining walls are a relatively simple way to add aesthetically pleasing visual interest in your landscape project for your home or business. People with many hills in their yard often have a hard time using the space effectively and beautifully, especially if the hills are very steep. Retaining walls are multi-functional! If those difficult slopes are walled off properly, they become much safer as well as more attractive and usable. Terraces can be built into the retaining wall design as well for added flowers and plants which can create a lovely flowing landscape look. A variety of retaining wall materials are available so that your Landscapes Unlimited project can suit your style as well as compliment the exterior of your home or business.
Having a properly installed retaining wall is important for your safety. The professionals at Landscapes Unlimited will start with a proper foundation when installing your retaining wall, large or small, to avoid any buckling or shifting. We can install free standing retaining walls, walls with seating built in terraces, segmental retaining walls (SRW), or simple garden walls to help keep your plants safe from unwanted visitors. For a more natural look, we can install a boulder wall using various sizes of rock and put in plants such as creeping sedum to continue the natural look.
