Outdoor kitchens have increased dramatically in popularity in recent years. These facilities can be as simple as a space for a barbecue or elaborate enough to support large professionally catered events. The selection of appliances, overall layout, and material selections are almost infinite in scope and “flavor.” If you are dreaming of a kitchen that totally mimics your indoor setup, contact a licensed architect and builder so that the proper permits are filed and the correct appliances are chosen.

Still looking to spice up your outdoor life? Whether your backyard dreams involve bundling up for a chat with a couple of close pals, nestled on a cushioned outdoor love seat, or invite the whole gang over for s’mores and ghost stories, the solution is the same: Just add fire!

Fireplaces create an intimate warm feeling and can invite fun conversations and a romantic setting among family and friends.
One advantage to built-in fireplaces is that they’re protected from the elements – namely wind, which can kick up embers and shift the direction of the smoke – and direct smoke upward and away from your guests’ faces. That protection will also make it much easier to light.
As far as materials go, Unique Companies build out your fireplace in a material that matches or coordinates with the other materials in your outdoor space: brick, stone, marble, tile, you name it. Aesthetically, the sky’s the limit. Some are wood fueled, and others are hooked into your home’s natural gas line just like any indoor fireplace would be.
Built-in fireplaces definitely offer an extra boost of aesthetic appeal that a free-standing fire pit won’t. Installing one will also add value to your outdoor living space if you keep it in top shape; that kind of high-end extension to your indoors makes the patio livable for more months out of the year.

Higher temperatures of summertime keep a lot of us inside, going out only during the later part of the day or early in the morning. As fall rolls around there are increasingly more gardeners out enjoying the day along with getting their plants back into the pre-summer heat condition.

Granted, we are not as afflicted with frosty weather and snow fall as other climates may be in the wintertime. That does not imply that we don’t have our very own garden tasks to complete when fall comes around. There’s several things you have to do for the garden in order to prepare for winter, even in Arizona.

With the hot weather coming to an end, a lot of people are no longer using their pool as much as they did in the summer time.  This presents pool owners with the perfect opportunity to remodel their pool while it’s not in use. 

Over time, all swimming pools begin to break down, fade, crack, leak and blister. When this time comes it is time to consider pool refinishing. The harsh conditions a swimming pool is constantly under are exactly what causes the breakdown: water pressure, chemicals and sun exposure. As your pool starts to break down, extra maintenance is required, as well as more water and chemicals than a healthy pool. Read more…
