Friends gathering on lawn

Before you know it, sunshine will be upon us, with the promise of swimming, sitting out in the sun, and enjoying get-togethers throughout. However, before you can enjoy all the summer sunshine, you have to have all of the necessary tools and amenities. With renovations from Kay2 contracting in Edmonton and Calgary, your home can be the place that everyone wants to go for their spring and summer celebrations.

As luxury home renovators, our skills apply to every area of your home, but what many don’t realize is that our award-winning home renovations extend to landscaping, lawns, and gardens as well. We can install walkways, garden beds, fences, fountains, and any other hardscaping or water features you might like, and we can even build you a pool — indoors or out! With renovations from Kay2, you can start living in luxury this summer.

Home and Garden Renovations for Summer Fun

If you want to do more entertaining, but you’ve just thought your home wasn’t suited to it because of a lack of entertainment options, seating, cooking capabilities, or just because your lawn or landscape is a bit of a mess, then we have plenty of renovations available to help make your home into the place to be.

Pools and Water Feature Installations

When it comes to summertime, there’s few things better than taking a refreshing dip, and Kay2 can help give you a luxurious pool to relax in and with all the features you could want. If you’re not sure if this is the year for you to install a pool, take into consideration that most basic pools take anywhere from two weeks to a month to complete. Even if you’d like to go all out, adding luxury water features such as waterfalls, islands, certain types of stone, current streams, and more, most installations can be done within a couple of months. 

If you’d like to maintain use of your pool all year long, then an indoor pool, most likely in your basement, is a great option. Depending on the layout of your home, we may be able to install an inground pool area with doors and windows that allow it to flow seamlessly with your back yard or garden. This way, you can embrace the outdoors in summer and still have a toasty pool in the winter.

If you’d like more water features in your backyard, but you’re not interested in a pool, then we have you covered. We can install a wide range of water features that will make your backyard feel like an oasis, such as ponds, fountains, and streams.

Landscaping

If you’re going to have an abundance of water features on your property, then chances are that you’ll need some landscaping work to go with it as well. After all, a luxurious fountain doesn’t just usually just sprout up out of the grass. You’ll want some hardscaping done to go with your water features, and there are a wide array of options that will not only look great, but that will have major functionality once it comes time to entertain guests.

If you’re going to entertain guests outdoors, then a few things are critical for everyone’s enjoyment. Some of the main considerations to consider are overall space, seating areas, and if there’s enough room for activities. All of this should be taken into consideration, and with Kay2, it always is. When we go through our initial design process for your home renovation, we’ll go over in detail how to address concerns like these.t Here are a few ways you could address these common concerns:

  • Overall Space — Fountains, trees, shrubs, and natural features can bring a sense of tranquility to your landscape, but the placement of them can interfere with prime entertainment space. For this reason, we might recommend either building around a few central features or leaving these aspects for the perimeter of your lawn. However, if you have a large enough lawn or landscape, then you may be able to do elements of both. In order for your guests to best observe and enjoy your features, it could be wise to install walkways and landings that lead to or around your features. With the right design, every foray into your yard or garden could be treated like a tour.
  • Seating and Socializing Space — For a back yard or garden, patios and pergolas offer the most common options for seating space, and they’re very moldable to other luxury features, such as fireplaces, hot tubs, or cooking areas. However, there’s no need to think so inside the box when it comes to seating. We can build in benches with your hard- and waterscape features, build stadium seating around a fireplace, and much more. If you love to get people together, then we can build you a backyard or garden that engages your guests to connect.
  • Room for Activities — Best friends are made when there’s ample room for activities, and we can design your landscape to allow for a variety of activities or build it so the activities are built right in! Open space plans are always a possibility for those who like to play sports or games on their lawn, but we can also install courts for basketball, tennis, volleyball, and more.

Your landscape is just that — your landscape — and it should reflect your taste and personality. Whether you just want a natural oasis for intimate gatherings, or you want all the amenities of a country club for entertaining friends and family, then we can make that happen.

Outdoor Kitchens

If you’re going out to entertain your guests, and if there’s going to be a lot of them, then you should probably consider an outdoor kitchen. While this may seem like a lot of extra work, they can actually be built into existing patios and hard features quite easily. We can build you a large cooking space with grills, smokers, and ample counter space, and if you’d like to keep the entire cooking process maintained by your outdoor kitchen, then we can even add plumbing and refrigeration for cleaning dishes and keeping food cool. That way, you don’t have to dirty your kitchen and the cook can stay involved in the party through the entire process. Outdoor kitchens are also a major asset if you ever want to host a catered event or open bar.
