Outdoor Kitchens & Patios for Entertaining

Nothing brings friends and family together like a great outdoor party. Enjoying the fresh air with some cold drinks and food on the grill is a warm-weather essential! Landscape and patio design can help you turn your backyard into the perfect space for entertaining, and we’re happy to help you with your ideas.

Outdoor kitchen and patio design for entertaining


Start with stone for great patio design

Build your entertainment area from the ground up. Here at Hackmann Lawn we use high quality patio pavers, natural stone, and brickwork to create uniquely beautiful patios. You’ll want a smooth yet solid base for your patio so that it can take a beating from sun, rain, and foot traffic. It’s essential to create a solid foundation so you don’t end up with dangerous trip hazards as stones sink into the ground. Hackmann Lawn can create patios that are as sturdy as they are beautiful. We work with Belgard Pavers materials, which allows us to offer high-quality bricks that come in a wide variety of color schemes. No matter what colors or patterns you are looking for, we can work with you to create a patio that matches your landscape and décor. We can even get creative with pool patio design and create a stunning style that highlights your pool!

Turn on the lights!

Everyone knows that a great party will continue well past sun down, so you’ll want to make sure that you have plenty of outdoor lighting so that your guests aren’t left in the dark. Hackmann Lawn uses Kichler lighting fixtures and is happy to work with homeowners to find the right style and setup for their light fixtures. While some patios will work great with ornate lanterns or hanging lights, others might look better with sleek wall lights that save on space and are more simplistic in design. You can even set up a light-up address sign so that late-comers won’t be able to pass up your house.

Fire up the grill

What’s an outdoor party without a grill? No entertainment-friendly patio design would be complete without a nice grill for all of those backyard barbecues. Summerset grills work perfectly for outdoor kitchen setups as they are true workhorses that can withstand the elements of the outdoors. If you’re looking to work your grill right into your patio design, there are great built-in options that place your grill within your patio stone. For more flexibility, freestanding grills are a great option. If you’re a true BBQ master, try out a full BBQ island complete with grill, cutting board area, storage drawers, and a mini-fridge.

Install an outdoor kitchen

For homeowners who thrive outside, outdoor kitchens are an excellent option. You can skip the hassle of popping in and out of your house every time you have an outdoor party by installing a fully-functional outdoor kitchen. BBQ islands are a great start for ultimate outdoor kitchen patio design, but you can also add in sinks and larger refrigerators so that guests can wash up and grab a cold beverage without having to go inside. 

Don't miss out on beautiful weather and outdoor fun. Get serious about your patio's entertainment possibilities and get the set up you want!
