How do you like your marshmallows? When you have your own fire pit, you can experiment every night if you want!
This home in Hampton, Virginia, started out with a lot, and it was our job to refine, simplify, and upgrade the space. We added native plants and clean landscaping, and not too long after the homeowners decided to add a fire pit to their backyard.
The entire patio is made to maximize seating space and use shade-loving plants (think azaleas, virburnum, forsythia, hydrangeas, etc.) to beautify the overall project.

Who knew what 2020 would bring?! It ended up being The Year of Home. I mused that since no one would be traveling to Paris or Venice this year, maybe people would put their vacation budget into their home, landscape, and outdoor spaces. While I may have meant that as a joke, it wasn't far from the truth, as few of our clients have told us.
Despite the challenges of finding supplies, manufacturers being shut down, wood prices skyrocketing, and material shortages, we had a lot of fun this year. We live to create. We enjoy the end result. We love seeing our clients live in their new space. We take pride knowing we had something to do with the memories they'll create enjoying the great outdoors.
Here are the Easton Outdoors top 10 projects for 2020!
I've been known to experiment with different cocktails. I enjoy assembling a crisp mojito, a cucumber spritzer, or even the classic gin and tonic with a squeeze of lime. So refreshing! I love to grab these creations, sit outside with my wife, enjoy our water feature, and let the kids play. It makes me wish spring and summer would last all year!
Through my constant search for new concoctions, I stumbled across a new recipe. A Berliner Weisse Mojito. I know - now you think I am crazy. You're saying; "Beer and a mojito?!" You have to trust me on this one. It is beyond fantastic! Plus, I did not use just any beer - I used Das Yummy, a Berliner Weisse style ale excellently crafted by my friends over at Oozlefinch.
