Ultimate Backyard Retreat May 26, 2016 With summer right around the corner, here’s a little outdoor living inspiration from a project we completed in south Fort Collins. Our fun-loving clients wanted a variety of beautiful, yet functional, outdoor living spaces that would fit their unique lifestyle. In this photo, their kids enjoy the swimming pool and rope swing. Stamped concrete for the pool decking is easy to maintain. Terraced steps, planters and outdoor lighting are both practical and appealing. This large stamped concrete patio provides an outdoor dining room, comfortable seating area with fire feature, and an oversized outdoor chess board. Here’s another view of the rope swing, raised hot tub with spillover water feature, and the open-air dining room and living space. A few raindrops won’t stop family and friends from gathering in this backyard. A sturdy gabled roof provides protection from harsh summer sun or annoying sprinkles. It’s also a great space to cozy up to the fireplace on chilly nights, watch a game on the flat-screen television, or enjoy a sunset and open views of the lake all year long.Thinking about creating an outdoor living space?
