It’s that time again to start making resolutions! If you’re like me, you’ve probably resolved to eat healthier and exercise more, but again, if you’re like me, those resolutions won’t last long. How about creating some resolutions that we can stick to? Resolve to make 2021 the year that you get the landscape you’ve been wanting for years! It could be easier than you think! Check out some projects that you can make your goal to complete this year!
Add a fire pit
We can’t stress this enough, a fire pit is the perfect outdoor living addition to your back yard. It is such a great center piece to have everyone gathered round. Some use it for warmth, some use it for ambiance, but it is perfect for both. It is especially fun to gather round with the family and toast marshmallows to make s’mores!
Spend more time with your family and let us do the work for you. We have several different package options, but we can keep your lawn looking great all year long. Check out our packages on the home page of our website!
Shrubs are a wonderful addition to any landscape. They add great personality to any home landscape. They also make great border plants!
Who doesn’t love flowers? They add the perfect pop of color to any area. You can also always have fresh flowers in the house when you have a fresh supply out in your yard!
Grow a Garden
Nothing is better than fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs out of the garden. While you can get the most output in the summer, gardens can be grown all year round! There is always something to grow and harvest and I can guarantee it will taste better than anything you can find at the store!
Add a Patio
Patios are a wonderful addition to spruce up the back yard. It is the best investment because you will use it more than you know. We are lucky enough to live in a place where we don’t have too harsh of a winter, so you are sure to use a patio space all year long!
Many of these projects you might feel like you can tackle on your own, but for others you may want our help! We would love to assist you in helping you meet these resolutions in 2021 and beyond. Give us a call today at (864)275-2039!

Pavers can be found in many yards. They make a great addition to any front or back yard. They last longer than poured concrete slabs and can be repaired easily if a paver breaks or cracks. Pavers are used to create pathways, patio spaces, or stepping-stones. The most important part of paver installation is the foundation you choose before laying the pavers. Below, you will find options of foundations.
Typically, pavers are laid on foundations like sand, soil, and crushed stone. Many people lay pavers in compacted soil. This can be done, but works best when you are only using the pavers for one season. The soil makes it very easy for the pavers to be removed and changed, which is great if you love changing up your paver patterns. Soil should be free of grass and weeds and very well compacted. Other wise, your pavers may settle lower during a rainstorm.
Sand can be used as a foundation to create a cushioned base for pavers. However, the sand must be well compacted. Sand works best for pavers that may not be used extremely frequently. Otherwise, the pavers may settle into the sand and shift often. The finer the sand, the more movement there will be of the pavers.
Crushed stone is another option. It is a very sturdy base for pavers. It is a great option for pavers that will be used and walked on frequently. You can even purchase crushed stone that is made specifically for paver foundations.
One of the best foundations may come from a combination of two materials: sand and crushed stone. Crushed stone makes a very stable base for any type of pavers. Sand creates even more stabilization. Crushed stone should be the base, then the pavers laid, and a level of sand on top to fill in any empty spaces. This creates a smoother look for the pavers, too.
The sand and crushed stone combination is the process that ALL Outdoors uses. We look forward to helping you design and install your paver patio dream. Call us today to set up a time to meet and design your dreams!

We get questions about paver and concrete patios a lot when going to give an estimate to a client. Which one is better: paver or concrete? What is cheaper? What will last longer? What problems will I have? Here we answered the pros and cons of each and why we believe paver patios are the better option.
Go to the beautiful streets in older downtown's and you will see aged pavers that have stood the test of time. They also still look amazing, yet the concrete around it has been replaced many times and is probably already starting to show signs of wear.
