The Landscape of WiFi: How to Incorporate WiFi Devices to Control Outdoor Systems

The smartphone and tablet have taken control of our daily lives with apps and features to manipulate just about everything. Home automation from these applications has become common in new construction and renovations, so why not extend that same ease of WiFi outdoors?

Irrigation systems, LED landscape lighting, and outdoor audio can be controlled with a simple swipe. These functions make operation a breeze and are environmentally friendly by optimizing water usage and energy consumption.

Irrigation Systems

The age-old question of “When should I water and how much?” has finally been answered. WIFI-enabled irrigation control units are not only linked to your device but also web-based weather forecasting systems. Variables such as sun exposure, plant species, and lawn types are also accounted for throughout individual zones on the property. Watering schedules are then adjusted based on forecasted temperature, rainfall, humidity, and wind speeds. These systems even can detect a change in water flow due to a break or obstruction in the piping. An alert is immediately sent to the smart device, and a repair can be promptly scheduled to avoid costly water loss. Water savings and a beautiful, healthy landscape can be achieved with this smart technology.

LED Landscape Lighting

LED technology in landscape lighting has come a long way since its inception. The initial cold, bluish-led lamps are now warm and inviting with an array of vibrant color options. WIFI-driven transformers can group light fixtures throughout separate outdoor spaces and adjust light intensities through your phone or tablet. Presets can also be programmed into the smart device so lighting will automatically turn on or dim when it detects the device within that space.

The ability to change colors on individual fixtures right from the palm of your hand can be perfect for creating just the right mood. The overall appearance of an outdoor space can be changed multiple times throughout the evening, providing a captivating experience for your guests.

Outdoor Audio

Nothing completes an outdoor space more than some good tunes from a well-balanced speaker system. A recent trend in outdoor audio is incorporating satellite speakers and subwoofers hidden within your landscape to create a feeling of total music immersion. WIFI-based units, such as Sonos, are similar to indoor sound systems where a smart device communicates with the WIFI driver and then transmits a signal to an amplifier and speakers.

Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and many others can easily be streamed right from the comfort of your patio seat. Individual speaker levels can also be adjusted to provide sound where needed most and gentle listening options for more intimate spaces. Multiple users can also have DJ access for large events to select their favorite jams from their phones. But, of course, it may be best to have great grandma sit that one out.

Most of us are connected to our smart devices 24/7, so why not put them to good use to bring high-quality sound to your outdoor space? There’s no better way to create an interesting and relaxing place outside than with your favorite music.

The Landscape of 2022: Trends in Outdoor Living

Outdoor living continues to be a driving force behind many residential landscape projects and will strengthen throughout 2022. Big box stores and retail giants have embraced this shift over the past few years and have even dedicated portions of their facilities to keep up with the demand. In addition, the interest in innovative landscaping products to create spaces for refuge, relaxation, and entertainment is leading the outdoor living surge.

The top three sought-after landscaping trends are:

“Smart” Landscape

Technology and landscape are terms that evoke more of a feeling of conflict than compliment, but this couldn’t be farther from true. For example, residential irrigation systems can be programmed to operate based on data provided by weather stations to optimize efficiency. Rainfall, humidity, wind speed, and temperature are all accounted for to give just the necessary amount of water. Landscape lighting has the capability to adjust intensity, color, and location at a moment’s preference. Outdoor WIFI audio systems strategically placed within the landscape offer a feeling of absolute emersion in sound. Oh, and by the way, these can all be easily controlled right from the palm of your hand because “there’s an app for that.”

Health and Wellness

Outdoor living and the implementation of outdoor spaces can create areas that encourage relaxation and reduce overall stress. Healing gardens similar to those in health care facilities can be recreated on a residential scale and lead you “well” into absolute Zen. Combining plant materials that appeal to the five senses and soothing audio can evoke restorative experiences. Add to that increased social gatherings within these environments, connecting another dimension to your mental wellness journey.

Extension of the Home

Outdoor living should be a seamless blend of architecture and landscaping, reflecting style and comfort from the interior to the home’s exterior. Integrating elements such as outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, and roof structures create additional space for relaxation and entertainment. Maximizing the usage time with these features is essential, especially with our mid-Atlantic region’s drastic seasonal climate changes. With interest in outdoor spaces continuing to rise, some homes for sale are listing both the interior square footage and the size of the exterior areas.

Audible Landscape: How to Incorporate Sound Into Your Outdoor Entertainment Space

Summer is here, and soon those barren wastelands of patios and decks will be alive with activity again. Grills will be fired up, furniture cushions placed, and portable stereos plugged in.  Time out… “Portable stereos?” It’s time to retire that Boom Box you’ve had since high school, purge those mounted “lunch box” style outdoor speakers, and take advantage of today’s technology. How about introducing symphony quality sound to your outdoor entertainment space? Innovative designs are gaining popularity with easy installation and control.

Top technology

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are two words most people are familiar with and use daily. Permanent outdoor sound systems have the same capabilities to be controlled by either of these platforms using a smartphone app. Whether the streamer for the system is a simple Bluetooth connection or more advanced Wi-Fi, such as Sonos, they both can be installed on a home’s exterior. In conjunction with an amplifier, your entire audio system can remain within the vicinity of the outdoor space without any costly interior wiring or renovations. A GFI electrical receptacle is all that is needed to get this outdoor powerhouse control center up and running.

Sound quality is undoubtedly the most critical product of a well-designed system, but speaker type and placement are key. They should be in the landscape surrounding the space to create an absolute sensation of immersion. Directional speakers will deliver sound to specified areas while being considerate to neighbors’ ears. Combination 3-way speakers are also available, which provide subwoofer, woofer, and tweeter all in the same unit. Speaker durability and longevity should be considered as well. We live in a region where temperature extremes and shore salt exposure can wreak havoc on outdoor electrical devices, so speaker housing materials are very important. Coastal Source is one of the leading manufacturers of these turnkey plug and play systems and has designed them to fit any application.

Sound in an outdoor environment can enhance any experience and influence the dynamic. Installing a properly planned sound system can foster relaxing alone time or a-rockin’ party. In addition, imagine being able to control the whole vibe and tone of the space without even leaving your seat.

“Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence” – Robert Fripp.

Paver walk

Written in Stone

The explosion of outdoor living spaces has brought upon many new (and old) innovative materials to create these environments. Patio and wall materials have transformed to simulate natural stone and even wood products accurately. The combination of concrete, porcelain, and natural stone has blended seamlessly and added unique standout elements to these outdoor entertainment areas.

Concrete pavers

The lure of the once highly sought-after octagonal concrete pavers of 25+ years ago has long diminished and has now been replaced multiple times over. The trends in concrete pavers and other patio materials are the larger “slab” style pavers. These pavers are readily available from many well-known manufacturers throughout our area and come in various sizes ranging from 12″ x12″ to 30″ x30″. They can either resemble natural stone with ridges and valleys (clefts) or have a very contemporary streamlined, smooth appearance. One main advantage of these manufactured concrete slabs is that they are available in numerous color blends to complement any home or business’s existing palette façade.

Pavers

Porcelain pavers

The relatively new kid on the block is outdoor porcelain pavers. The thought of porcelain immediately raises the question of how durable these materials can possibly be compared to their fine China and figurine relatives collecting dust in a curio cabinet somewhere. Interestingly, they are the most durable, with a psi of 38,000. This is almost five times stronger than a standard concrete paver and even more so than most natural stone. They resemble the appearance of travertine, marble, granite, and even wood planking. At only ¾” thick, they make the perfect choice for overlay applications on existing concrete bases. These incredibly strong pavers are even suitable for vehicular applications such as driveways.

Natural stone

Created under extreme earth pressures and processes, natural stones used today have been around for millions of years. These ancient materials are what manufacturers have been striving to emulate and capture their natural beauty. Bluestone, limestone, travertine, and granite are materials that can be seen readily used in landscape projects because of their timeless beauty and enduring nature. Natural stone makes a great choice as step treads, wall caps, and countertop accents, in addition to also using one of the other options mentioned above. Each individual stone is unique in its own way, and this will never be able to be duplicated in the manufacturing process.

Stonemasons have constructed many “Wonders of the World” throughout history, which have taken lifetimes to complete. However, today’s available hardscape materials and their ease of installation will only take a fraction of the time and allow you to create a similar “Wonder of the Neighborhood” right in your own backyard!

If you want to learn more about hardscaping materials and how we can design a beautiful outdoor space to complement your home, give us a call today at (856) 753.1944, or check out the various projects we’ve created and installed for our customers here.

Striving for Straight F’s: How Can You Achieve the Ultimate in Outdoor Entertainment?

Ever since I can remember, I thought that if I studied hard, paid attention, and tried my best, A’s would come my way. This couldn’t have proven to be more accurate. However, when designing and implementing an outdoor entertainment area, F’s are what we strive for. Food, Fire, and Fluidity are the main elements that deliver the ultimate “staycation” of homeowners’ dreams when brought together.

Food  

Enough said. Nothing brings people together better than an array of delicious food. The home kitchen always seems to be the main gathering area during holidays, birthdays, or parties. Why? Because people love to eat. And there’s no reason why a kitchen with all the same amenities (and more) can’t be created outdoors.

Grills, warmers, side burners, refrigerators, sinks, ice makers, pizza ovens, and even beer meisters can add functionality and fun to your patio space. Most of these kitchen structures come equipped with natural gas, electricity, and plumbing. Granite countertops, stainless steel cabinets, and drawers are also possibilities that provide beauty and convenience to your gourmet cooking experience.

Good food attracts friends and family alike. So put away those frozen hotdogs and hamburgers and prepare a restaurant-worthy spread in your new outdoor kitchen!

Fire  

Since the beginning of time, we have always been captivated and mesmerized by fire. A fireplace is typically the main focal point of a home’s family/living area and has much the same power as the kitchen to bring people together. Roasting marshmallows or huddling and talking around a fireplace hearth can easily be done right out your back door. That’s why incorporating an outdoor fireplace, fire pit, or fire element has become increasingly popular over the past ten years.

Wood, natural gas, or propane can all be used to fuel your inferno. Depending on your preference, these structures are available in kits for ease of installation or can be custom designed to fit specific needs. Natural stone, clay brick, or manufactured block and veneer are all used in construction. Whether it be warmth, utility, or just plain beauty, adding fire to your backyard will entice everyone to your outdoor space.

Fluidity  

The sound of flowing water has a calming effect which can be a tranquil addition to any area. Waterfalls, fountains, and ponds each have unique attributes in providing a soothing atmosphere. Waterfalls can be even be incorporated into swimming pools and ponds to drown out nearby vehicular traffic or an overly noisy neighbor.

Ponds can bring an entire mini living ecosystem to your property by including aquatic life and plants. Many homeowners looking for low-maintenance structures have pondless water features. These range from boulder/stone waterfalls to decorative bubbling urns spilling into underground collection basins with recirculation pumps.

Water has even made its way into built-in patio misters to keep your guests cool on those hot summer days. The introduction of moving water can transform an average outdoor space into a dynamic, relaxing environment.

A well-thought-out plan, qualified contractor, and flexible budget (of course) can blend all three of these elements. Now is the perfect time to plan your spring/summer outdoor projects and get ahead of the rush. Forget the travel agent. Create a private resort oasis and create new memories right in your own backyard instead by incorporating the 3 F’s. Give us a call to learn more at 856-753-1944.

How Can You Choose the Right Landscaper for Your Next Project?

How Can You Choose the Right Landscaper for Your Next Project?

Have you ever wondered if all of those titles and abbreviations after someone’s name actually make them more credible? They can. And the landscape industry is no different than any other facet of corporate America in accrediting individuals based upon education, knowledge, and experience. As a result, a select few have invested in themselves and their companies to provide better services and the highest quality products.

The following are three certifications commonly seen in the landscape realm that homeowners should consider before hiring a landscape professional.

CNLP: Certified Nursery Landscape Professionals must initially demonstrate a required body of knowledge about the nursery and landscape businesses. This education could be a degree or certification in horticulture and/or working or managing in industries such as landscape, nursery, or garden centers.

A CNLP prep course is offered to strengthen knowledge of plants (biology and management), landscaping (design and management), garden centers (sales and operations), and plant identification. The exam consists of 100-120 multiple choice questions and 25 plant identifications. Upon passing the exam, recertification is necessary every two years to obtain 24 continuing education credits within the same time frame.

APLD: The Association of Professional Landscape Designers bases its certification on experience and completed projects rather than educational curriculum or exams. An applicant must be practicing for at least two years and submit drawings, plant lists, photographs, and design objectives from three completed projects for evaluation.

APLD certified members need to go through a recertification process every three years and receive 30 continuing education credits. Founded in 1989, this is the only international certification program for landscape designers.

Landscape Architect– This is a multi-year degree Landscape Architecture program at an accredited university/college. By definition, “Landscape architecture is a multi-disciplinary field, incorporating aspects of botany, horticulture, the fine arts, industrial design, geography, and ecology.”

Landscape architects practice in various professions from designs of private residences/estates, public parks, civil infrastructure, and ecological restoration. Depending on the state where they practice, they are regulated with either a certification or licensure exam followed by yearly continuing education credits. The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is the primary organization these professionals are members of.

As you can see from this list, there are several certifications that can help verify the knowledge and skills that landscaping contractors have mastered. In addition, industry training and credentials can make a big difference in the quality and outcome of your next landscape project. So, before you hire a landscape professional for your next outdoor endeavor, be sure to investigate their credentials and experience. A contractor committed to achieving the highest level of safety, efficiency, and productivity will undoubtedly provide you with the best service.

How Can Your Love of Roses Complement Your Landscape?

How Can Your Love of Roses Complement Your Landscape?

February is undoubtedly the month of love, and the beautiful rose has come to symbolize and strengthen this representation for hundreds of years. Unfortunately, the high demand for this coveted flower during Valentine’s Day can easily triple in cost compared to the summer months. People across the country can be seen rushing around last minute on February 14th, spending a lot just to pick these beauties in an array of colors for their loved ones. Then in a week, they will wither, die, and find their way into the garbage. Not a good investment if you ask me!

So, if you’re an admirer of this flower, then why not include rose bushes within your landscape to enjoy throughout the entire season? Many varieties are readily available at local garden centers which require little maintenance, have extended bloom cycles, and grow different sizes to fit any space.

Wild (Species) Roses

These are the untouched ancestors of the roses most identified with today. They have remained unaltered without any cross-breeding or genetic modification. The Species Rose’s is exceptionally hardy to temperature fluctuations and requires little to no maintenance. Though they produce smaller flowers than their modern-day counterparts, and only once a season, they have many other valuable attributes. Vibrant hips (fruit) appear in fall, providing added seasonal color, not to mention attracting wildlife to the garden. Their tall arching branches make them an excellent selection for perimeter buffer plantings and screens. The thorns along their branches are also very profuse, making an excellent deterrent for unwanted company or deer.

Climbing Roses

Self-described, climbing roses develop very long canes (branches), which are flexible and easily trained through an arbor or trellis. Unlike actual vines, they do not possess clinging or climbing properties themselves and must be positioned intentionally. Some can even grow to lengths of 25’+, making them an excellent choice for a pergola or other large overhead structure. Walking by a grouping of roses in full bloom can be breathtaking but strolling under a mass of climbing roses is amazing. “Eden,” “New Dawn,” and “Joseph’s Coat” are some of the best climbers in the landscape.

Shrub Roses

Also known as landscape roses for their continued growing use in residential and commercial landscape projects, they’ve been cross-bred to create ultimate bloomers. Color variation, repeating bloom cycle, scent, and growth habits have been emphasized in these biogenetically engineered masters of the flower world. “Knock-Out” roses are most commonly known for their extended bloom from May through October, in addition to a high pest and disease tolerance. Carpet and Drift roses offer similar attributes but in a very low mounding and spreading variety, usually only growing 2’-4′ in height. Finally, miniature roses are well suited for container gardening, with most types only getting 1’-2′ tall. With so many choices available, you’re sure to find something that fits your needs.

The most requested item, hands down, in creating an aesthetically pleasing landscape is COLOR. Including rose varieties of different hues in your landscape is a guaranteed way to provide that WOW factor. Plant in masses with complementing colors, and you too will find yourself enjoying beautiful roses over multiple seasons throughout the year.

And wouldn’t that be so much better than only a week every mid-February?

How and Why Should You Update Your Landscape Technology in the New Year?

How and Why Should You Update Your Landscape Technology in the New Year?

Technology and landscape are terms that sometimes evoke more of a feeling of conflict than complement when used together. However, the truth is they can be integrated seamlessly. Smartphones and tablets are taking control of our daily lives with apps and features to manipulate just about everything. Home automation from these applications has become commonplace in new construction and renovations, so why not extend that same ease of WIFI use outdoors.

LED landscape lighting, irrigation systems, and outdoor audio can all be controlled with just a simple swipe of the hand.  These functions make operation a breeze and are environmentally friendly by optimizing water usage and energy consumption.

LED Landscape Lighting

LED landscape lighting technology has come a long way since its inception.  The initial cold, bluish led lamps are now warm and inviting with the added option of an array of vibrant colors.  WIFI-driven transformers can group light fixtures throughout separate outdoor spaces and adjust light intensities as chosen through a phone or tablet.  Presets can also be programmed into the smart device so lighting will automatically turn on or dim when it detects the device within that space.

The ability to change colors on individual fixtures right from the palm of your hand I find the most versatile in creating the mood.  The overall appearance of an outdoor space can be changed multiple times throughout the evening (or season), captivating your audience intriguing them to wonder what’s next.

Irrigation Systems

The constant question of- “When should I water and how much?” has finally been answered.  WIFI-enabled irrigation control units are linked to your device and web-based weather forecasting systems.  Variables such as sun exposure, plant species, and lawn types are first accounted for throughout individual zones on the property.  Watering schedules are then adjusted and set based on forecasted temperature, rainfall, humidity, and wind speeds. These systems even can detect a change in water flow due to a break or obstruction in the piping.  An alert is immediately sent to the smart device, and you can schedule a repair promptly to avoid costly water loss. This smart technology leads to water savings and a beautiful, healthy landscape.

Outdoor Audio

Nothing completes the outdoor experience than some good tunes from a well-balanced speaker system. The most recent trend in outdoor audio is incorporating satellite speakers and subwoofers hidden within the landscape to create an immersive experience.  WIFI-based units, such as Sonos, provide similar capabilities to their indoor counterparts. The smart device communicates with the WIFI driver and transmits the signal to an amplifier and speakers. Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and many others can easily be streamed right from the comfort of your patio seat and surround you with digital music. Individual speaker levels can also be adjusted to provide sound where needed most and gentle listening for more intimate spaces. Multiple users can play DJ and select their favorite jams from their phones for an entertaining evening.

Most of us are connected to our smart devices 24/7, so why not put them to use for a practical and unique outdoor experience. What better way to coax the whole family away from the TV and Facebook than to get them outside with beautiful lighting and great music?

This year, get them back to the playroom we all had growing up – the great outdoors.

What are the Best Ways to Bring Warmth to Your Outdoor Entertainment Space?

What are the Best Ways to Bring Warmth to Your Outdoor Entertainment Space?

As we’re preparing for the holidays and the cold weather to set in, it’s a great time to start thinking about your outdoor space again. Though the summer barbecues, family parties, and relaxing sunsets are now all just a fond memory, your outdoor entertainment area doesn’t have to be left vacant during the winter months. And we have some great ideas to help you with this. You may even want to add one to your holiday wish list.

As you turn up the thermostat inside with the plummeting temps, warmth can also be brought outside to make your patio enjoyable and functional with the use of FIRE.  It’s no secret that fire has been warming souls and bringing people together since the beginning of time. However, today’s applications and uses make this ancient element easy to add to any outdoor environment.

Fireplaces

By far, the stateliest way to incorporate a warm glow is a fireplace. They are typically the main focal point of a home’s family/living area and bring that similar aesthetic value to an outdoor patio space.  These structures are available in kits for ease of installation or custom-designed to fit specific needs.  Natural stone, clay brick, or manufactured block and veneer are all available options for constructing these features.  Incorporating solid stone mantels and hearths (as of their interior counterparts) even adds to their beauty and functionality. Imagine pulling the patio chairs up close and enjoying a hot cup of coffee or your favorite cigar while enjoying your outdoor fireplace.

Firepit

The firepit is where it all began and has evolved from the metal bowls on legs (which usually rusted out after a few years) to the permanent works of art built directly into the patio itself.  They can be constructed from all the same materials/kits as mentioned above with the fireplaces.  Circles, squares, rectangles, and hexagons are amongst the geometric shapes these firepits can take.  A few advantages of a firepit vs. fireplace are a 360-degree viewing and warming angle, not to mention taking up far less space.  And the price tag is only about 20% of a fireplace!  Though they may not possess the grandeur of a fireplace, there is nothing better than gathering around a firepit with your children and grandchildren, roasting marshmallows, and telling stories.

Infrared Heaters

Now more than ever, businesses (restaurants, bars, event venues) are using infrared heaters outdoors to increase their space due to COVID challenges. There are now so many options available on a residential scale for homeowners.  Compact and engineered to fit into virtually any area, they provide warmth where it is needed most. This is key in today’s efforts to conserve energy and reduce your carbon footprint. Although some of these heaters are typically mounted above, the heat originates below the floor zone and then rises.  Much the same way the infrared rays emitted by the sun work as they are reflected off of Earth’s surface.  It only seems right to heat your patio area the same way the sun has been doing it for the past 4.6 billion years.

Whether you choose wood-burning, natural gas, or propane to fuel your inferno, careful planning is a must before implementing any of these, as many construction codes and permits apply to their location and use. A licensed contractor with experience in their design and installation is essential.

How Can You Develop a Comprehensive Landscape Design Plan?

Every great plan begins with just an idea.  Maybe it’s a concept of an outdoor entertainment space, complete with fireplace and bar top, or a plan to arrange landscape plantings to complement the style of your home. However, it’s the next steps that are so important in transforming this idea into a reality.  Site evaluations, conceptual drawings, and final site plans/3D imagery all compose the path leading to your ultimate “staycation.” Before jumping into this process, the undoubtedly most crucial aspect is determining a BUDGET.  This mystical number will help guide the direction of the plans and how they are composed.

Site Evaluation

This initial step highlights any limiting factors present on your property to be considered in the plan.  Drainage (water flow) should be evaluated not to introduce any landscape/hardscape features that could impede flow or redirect water in an unapproved fashion.  Sun exposure will dictate if a roof or pergola structure may be a nice addition to beat the heat or simply the variety of plants that will thrive. Town building/zoning codes need to be researched to be aware of what is allowable within your municipality.  Most towns have lot coverage and setback codes which may limit the extent of your project.  Conduct a soil analysis to determine if there is a high clay or sand content present.  The soil will directly affect how certain hardscape features are constructed (footing depth, base material, etc.) and the type of plant material utilized.  Spend some time studying the dynamics of your property to lead you in the right direction.

Conceptual Designs

Exterior landscape/hardscape design is a very fluid, ever-evolving process that should not be rushed. Take your time and allow the spaces to be sketched out so that all “wish list” elements be accounted for and located.  This planning will help in deciding spatially what can be incorporated and what can’t. This step helps examine the possibilities.  An old-fashioned #2 pencil with a fat eraser, in conjunction with trace paper, is a great way to create overlays and optional features.   This stage is the time to be creative, so if one idea doesn’t work, erase it or sketch over and try again.

Final Site Plan/3D Imagery

This last step is typically reserved for certified/degreed landscape architects and accredited landscape designers; however, computer programs are available if you feel up to the task.  A home survey is a valuable document you most likely already have to develop the base map of existing structures.  The survey is a scaled drawing that is either enlarged by hand drafting or importing into a computer program.  The conceptual images are now drawn in at the exact dimensions of the proposed project.  This is the plan which will be used for construction, so precision is key.  All structures, hard surfaces, bed lines, plant material, etc., should be included in these plans.  For those who have trouble envisioning overhead site plans, 3D imagery is available to create a realistic representation of the project’s appearance before a shovel is put into the ground.  Specific vantage points can be manipulated and viewed through these images.

The comprehensive landscape/hardscape design process is the necessary starting point to elaborate on that “million-dollar” (or maybe just a few thousand) ideas and provides piece of mind in your investment.  So, when you see those accreditations and abbreviations listed next to a designer’s name, know they come with the value and the ability to help professionally. So now that your design is complete, it’s time to start planning the best feature….  how you’re going to relax and enjoy your newfound outdoor space once construction is complete!
