Outdoor Living Areas

Create a Vacation Spot Just Outside Your Back Door

Outdoor living rooms are a growing trend to extend the living area and to extend the outdoor season. This means creating outdoor spaces for recreation, dining, cooking, entertaining and other activities. With creative landscaping, the backyard, front yard, side yard, porch or patio can become more than just a garden or space to maintain —they can be an extension of the comfort of your home.


RYCO Landscaping will help you design your outdoor living areas, select the right materials, construct the hardscape and structures, and install the plants needed. At every step of the way, we’ll streamline the process and help you transform your yard into an outdoor retreat.

Landscape Renovation

With renovation, outdoor space around a home can become more functional and appealing. New “outdoor rooms” can be created from existing patios, retaining walls and plant materials. Trees, shrubs and planting beds can be replaced or rejuvenated for a fresh new look.

Whatever you have in mind, RYCO can renovate your residential landscape to maximize your living space and improve your outdoor environment. And, if you plan to sell your house, a landscape renovation can increase the property value.
Property managers, builders and developers, homeowner and condo associations and corporations know that time can take its toll on landscaping. Curb appeal and well-maintained grounds say a lot about a property. RYCO can help you plan, design and install your commercial landscape renovation project to meet your needs and budget.
