In our previous blog, we provided you with some ideas for making your West Texas outdoor space better than ever before. We’ll continue with that topic here, giving you inspiration for less common, more spectacular ways of transforming your yard space so you, your family, and your friends can enjoy it for years to come.

Bring Your Kitchen Outdoors

If you’re looking to entertain in your outdoor space, there’s no better way to go about it than holding a good old fashioned West Texas summer BBQ. There’s nothing more rewarding than a hot meat, warm sunshine, and ice cold drinks on a beautiful summer day.

But you can’t expect to be the BBQ grillmaster of the neighborhood with a tiny Weber grill and a tinier patch of concrete beneath your feet. You need the culinary tools and the proper space to work your BBQ magic on the world at large.

An outdoor kitchen is a great way to bring the party outside, providing you with top-notch grilling and cooking appliances, useful countertop space, and ample storage for all of your propane fuel and your state of the art grilling gadgets.

There’s no need to slave away in the kitchen while all of your friends are soaking up the sun outside. Let us help you build your perfect outdoor kitchen so you can serve up that uniquely delicious West Texas BBQ flavor for the whole neighborhood.

If there’s anything more beautiful than Texas during the day, it’s Texas in the dark. With warm temperatures and wide open skies, your backyard festivities can last well into the night—that is, if you have ample lighting in your outdoor space.

Developing a custom lighting solution for your outdoor space is a great way to keep the party going, and will allow you and your guests to safely navigate through your yard (you wouldn’t want someone to step into your cactus patch, would you?). Painting your yard with overhead patio string-lights will create a warm, welcoming atmosphere, and using ground-level path lighting will keep people on the right path as they wander from your yard into your house. Plus, all that warm light will make those midnight dips in your pool or hot tub all the more satisfying (and safe).

To top it all off, you’ll need a centerpiece that will tie your entire yard together—a place where people can gather around, tell some stories, and bask in the perfectly cool night air. You guessed it—you need an outdoor fireplace. The crew at Mason Landscaping and Design installs top-of-the-line outdoor fireplaces and fire pits for all of your late-night conversations, weenie roasting, and hand warming.
