Getting outside is intrinsically valuable to our well-being and health and is something increasingly difficult to prioritize. Make it more accessible by revamping your current backyard to encourage outdoor living. These homeowners in Northern Kentucky did precisely that by adding a new outdoor living area with a deck, stone-paved patio, massive wood-burning fireplace, and grill island. What was before, only a small concrete pad with a freestanding grill and chair adjacent to the house, has been quadrupled in size and function. The craftsmen of Wessel Lawn Care brilliantly created an outdoor area that is interactive, inviting, and spacious.
The outdoor kitchen island is built into the stone patio’s boundary walls for a completely unified custom rustic elegance. The "L-shaped" island is made of stone veneer on the faces and sides and topped with handmade and handpainted concrete countertops. The island's cooking section features a built-in stainless steel Summerset Grills TRL, matching dry storage, and a smoker. Perpendicular to that is a section built taller for bar-style seating and houses more drawers and a built-in trash compartment. The stone and counters' organic textures and rough edges give the entire outdoor area a sense of European charm and age.
