Creekstone Outdoor Living is pleased to announce that they have been honored as a 2018 Pinnacle Award Winner by Luxury Pools + Outdoor Living Magazine! Sam Hickey, the owner of Creekstone Outdoor Living, teamed up with Regal Pools to create an outdoor living masterpiece that won top honors for Ultimate Outdoor Entertaining Space.
Luxury Pools + Outdoor Living Magazine
Each year, the magazine Luxury Pools + Outdoor Living hosts the Pinnacle Awards honoring the most prestigious pool builders and outdoor landscape designers. Esteemed judges seek out outdoor projects that represent the year’s best designs. Creekstone Outdoor Living’s outdoor entertainment design wowed the judges and ended up being highlighted on the cover of the Fall/Winter 2018 issue. Copies of this issue are still available through the Luxury Pools + Outdoor Living website.
Ultimate Outdoor Entertaining Space
Creekstone Outdoor Living enjoyed creating the ultimate outdoor entertaining space with the help of Regal Pools. Their three-layered pool design caters to all ages and swimming preferences, and the 1,500 square foot covered outdoor living area is perfect for relaxing after a nice swim or eating a delicious meal cooked in the outdoor kitchen.
Creekstone Outdoor Design
This amazing project was created using all exposed Douglas fir beams, 12×12 solid columns with custom fabricated trusses and automated lighting to light up the night while you entertain friends and family. This same design also won the prestigious GHBA Prism Award (Greater Houston Builders Association) for best Outdoor Living Space.

When thinking about backyard design, there are many things to consider. If you make the wrong decisions during the design process, changes could end up costing you more in the long run. Here are some of the top do’s and don’ts to consider when planning your backyard design.
Backyard Design Do’s
With the proper backyard design, your outdoor living space can become the perfect after-work retreat, a great play space for the kiddos, or an ideal place for entertaining. Here are the top things you do need for a successful backyard design:
Get A Solid Plan
Before you begin, get a solid plan in mind. Sketch out your ideas on paper and make sure to consider the size of your yard and what it will be used for. Take notes and get ideas from websites, television shows, and magazines.
Use Native Plants
To help ease your upkeep, choose plants native to your area. This ensures your landscaping will hold up to the climate and weather changes. Native plants will be less maintenance, giving you more time to enjoy your backyard, rather than tending to it.
The right landscape lighting can instantly add charm and character to your home. Lighting can accent your favorite areas of the yard, add security, and curb appeal. There are many options for outdoor lighting, such as LED lights, string lights, lanterns, and sconces.
Develop a Focal Point
Create a focal point in your yard with an element that stands out, such as a water fountain, outdoor kitchen, natural pond, or an outdoor fireplace. This makes sure your yard isn’t boring or simply a lawn of grass. Adding a focal point also helps cut down on yard maintenance, too.
Hire a Landscape Designer
The easiest way to stay away from the pitfalls of backyard design is to hire a landscape professional to help with the planning and installation. A landscape designer will know what plants work best and where, and will save you a lot of hassle and hard work.
There are some backyard don’ts that need to taken seriously or they could pose problems in the future. Here are the top don’ts you need to remember when planning your backyard design:
Plant Invasive Species
Some plants like to spread and grow and take over. They might look pretty, but you don’t want an invasive plant species in your backyard. Make sure to ask a landscape professional about which plants will cause issues in the long-term.
Forget the Hardscape
Don’t forget to add hardscape! Hardscape adds character and keeps your yard from being a bore. A pergola with flowering vines, or an outdoor kitchen, or a covered patio are the perfect additions to your backyard design!
Plant Basic Beds
Don’t go for basic beds with a hedge. Add color and depth by planting a variety of plants of different sizes. Mix and match colors and objects to create a one of a kind look that is sure to dazzle your neighbors and add curb appeal.
Plant Trees Too Close
Be careful about planting trees too close to the house, walkways, or hardscapes. Make sure to do research on any trees you plan to plant to see how much space they need when fully grown.
Do’s & Don’ts of Backyard Design
Backyard design can make your backyard the perfect place for relaxing, entertaining, and hang out with loved ones if you choose the right design options. Make sure to follow these do’s and don’ts when you are ready to create your perfect outdoor space.
