YOUR BACKYARD OASIS: The Joys of Summer Living Right Out Your Back Door
Now that summer has officially arrived in the New York Hudson Valley, complete with scorching hot temperatures and very little rain, the pleasures of your backyard life have been brought into full focus. Or perhaps, lack thereof. If you’ve been procrastinating taking the first step to a much-needed professional consultation about the dormant treasures of your own property potential, then this weather is probably weighing on you heavily.
Had you bitten the bullet in the cold spring temperatures which seemed to be never-ending, you could be enjoying your own dramatic landscape featuring a pool, a spa or an outdoor kitchen right now. Maybe all three! After all, each one of these ideas could provide you with years of entertainment, fun and yes, relief from the oppression of everyday life.
There is a good reason why people have decided to invest in the grounds which surround their homes. We’re mired in a slump in regional real estate prices which means selling your home is not the best decision at this time. Second, with meteorologists predicting hotter and hotter weather for the unforeseeable future, an investment in landscape development makes a lot of sense. If not now, when? Life is too short to deny yourself, your family and your friends the happiness such on-site luxuries deliver.
Rhett Goslar, president of Artistic Landscapes LLC based in New York’s Orange County, has plenty of clients who endorse this reasoning. In fact, he is working on elaborate designs for them now. These involve pools, outdoor kitchens, patios and plantings, outfitted with lighting, irrigation systems, and other enhancements which facilitate your complete relaxation rather than add to your level of stress.
Whether you want a fully developed plan which includes the design and installation of a magnificent pool and waterfall professionally finished with a handsome patio and outdoor culinary center, or a more conservative approach which allows for a more gradual multi-season series of projects, Rhett and his crew are a source of extraordinary talent and proven reliability. Some of his clients proclaim his merits in their detailed Angie’s List reviews:
“What makes the Artistic Landscapes team different? Pride! They take pride in everything they do. They treat the project as if it’s for their own home.”

Now that we’re in the midst of what appears to be a beautiful run of summer weather, consider the benefits of consulting with a highly accomplished landscape designer like Rhett Goslar who will provide you with an on-site visit at no charge. Depending on the extent of the work you require, your project could take approximately six to twelve weeks to complete. With time precious, the efforts to develop your design, schedule your work and implement your plan will prove priceless from a long-term perspective. Prep work is essential (electrical, drainage, plumbing, etc.) and should be addressed in the initial stages of any size project. That gives you the freedom to include everything you need for the most complete landscape imaginable! Baby step by baby step. Or all at once, if that is your style!
When you imagine your life as it could be with a fully enhanced backyard environment, there really is no other alternative that will suffice. You can reach Rhett at ArtisticLandscapesNY.com or by calling 845-542-6723.
