Outdoor living can consist of designing and creating unique outdoor spaces through construction or landscaping projects - from staining decks to building a koi pond with a cascading waterfall we've got you covered. Homeowners are building outdoor kitchens and fireplaces for entertaining purposes, while others are installing unique lighting concepts to reveal the beauty of their yardwork at night. Whichever project you decide to tackle, Angie's List is here to help you figure out the best way to begin transforming your outdoor living space.
