A thoughtfully designed outdoor living space creates an ambiance the indoors can’t match. Taking your indoor style out the back door and into your landscape adds living and entertaining space otherwise not possible in the Pacific Northwest. It also adds nature’s therapeutic elements. Outdoor kitchens for dining al fresco, gazebo’s perfect for game nights, fire pit’s with seat walls for the young at heart. These house-matching outdoor living spaces add variety to your lifestyle. And we all like being outside, especially with destination points in the landscape. Patios, pergolas, and pathways that lure us out to enjoy nature and to spend quality time together.

4 Benefits of having a Hot Tub


Gazebos in landscape design have been fixtures in gardens for centuries. Originally called summerhouses, kiosks, pavilions, pergolas, arbors, or pagodas, their popularity has become more widespread with every generation and they have emerged as the most prevalent outdoor garden and landscape structures in the world. And it is easy to see why – they are gorgeous!

Premier Backyard Living Landscaping and Exterior Design is proud of our 27 years in design/build construction of beautiful custom wood structures in Portland, Oregon (and the surrounding area). Custom wood structures are adaptable to each homeowner’s taste and style and the design may be round, square, octagonal, or rectangular. Which is your favorite?

Concrete Landscaping Pavers bring definition to a landscape. Even a lush garden of plantings can become a more pleasant private retreat by installing a concrete landscaping paver patio or architectural slab pathway. Landscaping pavers define beauty, elegance and durability for patios, walkways, entrance ways, pool decks, and driveways. Properly installed landscape pavers won’t crack, sag, shift, or separate. They will continue looking magnificent for generations, and if they ever become stained or marred they can be repaired quickly, easily and invisibly.

Water features in landscapes . . . what more attractive element in landscape design? Moving water in the landscape promotes a feeling of relaxation and can mask other unwanted noise in your surroundings. Aesthetically beautiful, water features enhance both large and small areas and can simulate the beauty and sounds in the many streams and creeks in Portland, Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.
