One of the favorite cliches of Oscar season is a famous actor or director telling the audience how special it is to be chosen for such a prestigious award by his peers. Cliche or not, that’s the kind of pride that we felt when Archadeck of West Columbus won the award for Excellence in Hardscapes and Patios in a recent competition that included companies from across the U.S. and Canada.
I believe one of the things that makes this particular Columbus curvilinear patio design special is that it has all of the elements in it. The extensive stonework across multiple levels covers the earth category. We see fire both in the warming conversational-friendly fire pit and the built-in grill area with granite counters. The open air porch invites cooling breezes all summer long. Where is the water? There is no water per se, but take a look at the overall design and you will see the curving, bending nature of the lines and circles that is inspired by the winding paths of the rivers that are such treasures to us here in central Ohio.
This is a project that will continue to grow more beautiful over the next few years. There are a number of landscaped areas within the design that will fill in over the long term. Those are intermingled with beds and planters that are well-suited to the use of annuals to create pops of color and interest. I can’t wait to see what furnishings the homeowner adds now that all the pieces have come together.
Here are a few of the kind words we received with our award:
“We are proud to present this award to Rob Mitchell and the entire Archadeck of West Columbus team,” stated Mike Reeder, VP of the Archadeck Outdoor Living Brand. “His level of expertise and design carried him through many challenges that the landscape provided and in the end, he was able to deliver to the homeowner what he had envisioned… beautifully.”

Archadeck of Columbus helps consumers in the Columbus, OH area envision the perfect backyard for our 2013 Archadeck dream backyard makeover contest.
If you were given the chance to build the ultimate dream backyard in your backyard where would you begin? Archadeck of Columbus is proud to be part of the 2013 Archadeck dream backyard makeover contest where one lucky homeowner will win a dream backyard built by Archadeck and valued at up to $70,000. To enter, contestants have to submit a description of what their dream backyard would be. To help envision your dream backyard to enter the contest, here are some ideas for you.
Maybe your outdoor dream begins with a large porch. The porch can be screened, open or covered depending on how you want to live on your porch. Both covered and screened porches are great for adding living and dining areas to your outdoor space. With screened porches you get the added luxury of protection from insects and inclement weather. And, they can function much like an outdoor room. When you imagine your “dream porch” what type of roof does it have? Gable and hip roofs are among the most popular choices, but many times a shed roof can work great too. You roof style will depend highly on how the porch will connect to your home. Porches can be attached using either sidewall or roof tie-in connections and your roof style will be one key consideration in determining this. It is also possible to build a detached porch that functions much like a cabana, or pavilion. When envisioning your outdoor oasis it is also important to consider the orientation of the sun within your backyard. The location of the sun may mean a shaded structure such as a covered porch, or pergola would make the most sense and bring you the most enjoyment.
Your dream porch could spill into a rustic hardscape patio, maybe even a patio with a fire pit and seating wall. Hardscape features like seating, columns, and retaining walls can balance your outdoor space and finish them out to give you a more custom look. You may even consider a hardscape patio that has a little elevation to it so that you may step down into your backyard from the patio. Remember that it always the little things that can turn a good design into a great one when it comes to outdoor living structures.
Custom amenities like ceiling fans, lighting, and even wiring your outdoor space with speakers will enable you to further your outdoor enjoyment. Decks are always a solid choice for enhancing your backyard bliss. Adding features like planters, benches or even an outdoor kitchen to your deck will enhance the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your dream backyard. TimberTech has a deck designing page on their website that allows you to design your TimberTech deck by mixing their vast selection of color combinations of decking and railing to come up with the perfect deck to suit any taste.
