Dividing backyard space into outdoor “rooms” is a growing trend in landscape and hardscape design with the biggest focus being on the outdoor kitchen. It’s no longer just a barbeque counter or a lone charcoal grill. An outdoor kitchen may have a grill, sink, refrigerator, wet bar, even a fireplace or pizza oven. You can design a counter-top that serves double duty as a prep area and dining surface. Maximize seating with a bar-height counter-top and stools. The kitchen area can be constructed of dry – laid modular block or masonry products such as brick, stone or stucco. With all the exciting developments in outdoor kitchen materials and products, you can be sure it will be a worthwhile addition to your backyard.
