Complete Outdoor Concepts
The renovators at Complete Outdoor Concepts transform backyards into cozy alcoves for cooking and mingling by erecting picturesque patios, arbors, and outdoor kitchens. After surveying earthen foundations, the crew arrays slabs of natural flagstone or patterned concrete into patio-size checkerboards, or weaves slats of cedar, redwood, or composite materials into sturdy decks ready for midsummer lounging. Arbors sway free or cling to homes, shading kitchens from with sunny rays undeterred by walls or ice sculptures shaped like guard dogs. The crew can also plot outdoor cooking areas that center around functional focal points such as built-in stainless-steel grills or ornate fireplaces and pits fueled by gas or wood. The company's landscapers also fringe yards with accent lighting and lush greenery or fences of pre-stained western red cedar, which naturally fends off decay, destructive insects, and neighbors gathering intel about next year's Christmas decorations.
