The most requested aspect of a landscape used to be... "just get me to the water". Now the granite steps and flagstone walkway to the boathouse or dock may also lead to a multi-purpose sport court or a sand volleyball court, the firepit - or even the par 3 golf hole - while it passes the man-made water feature that looks like it was always there.
We are constantly being asked to add something a little different and unique to our projects - all of the above mentioned being popular landscape features.
Sports Courts: These multi-purpose courts are now a very popular request, used for basketball, tennis, hockey and more. Rockscape Design works with our partners at Sport Court to create the customized court that suits your needs and interests.
Beach Volleyball: You don't necessarily need a beach to have a beach volleyball court almost anywhere. Using free draining sand product to create these courts our homeowners don't need to worry about standing in waters or hard sand and these courts provide hours of fun!
Fire Pits: Almost all of our landscapes include some kind of large patio to gather family and friends on weekends at the cottage - many of these include a fire pit that is cut into the flagstone patio.
Water Features: One of our favourite creative undertakings is designing custom water features that fit so well in the landscape it looks as though we built around them! Often water features are a visually pleasing solution to drainage issues, and sometimes they are simply another point of interest for our clients and their guest to enjoy!
Hot Tubs: Our latest constant request is for a hot tub that is naturally set within the landscape. Gone are the days when a tub sat on the deck now we can create custom concrete tubs or sink them into decks or even the landscape - a favourite feature for clients and their guests!
Container Planting: We take great pride in the custom container planting that we do for some of our clients annually. Each property gets their own unique design and look. These are a seasonal favourites for many of our clients and staff.
We are pleased to offer any of these highlights, custom built to blend with your new landscape and the natural Muskoka surroundings. If you have another unique dream or vision - be sure to ask us about it, as always - we are up to any challenge!
