Update Your Outdoor Space

Distinctive Deck Designs has the whole package. We can transform your home completely with custom deck construction, but homeowners can take it one step further. The one project that always seems to elevate a yard is adding enhancing, outdoor features. Embellishing your yard is a very personal process so you should work with a company that you trust. We will work with you along the way to provide expertise on creating an atmosphere that feels luxurious, calming and that matches your vision perfectly.

Outdoor Fireplace

The ambiance and warmth a fireplace adds to an outdoor space is unbeatable. Whether you are entertaining or sitting out on your patio, unwinding after a long day by a custom fireplace will be an excellent addition to your Fairfax design. We build high-quality, wood-burning fireplaces of all sizes to complement your backyard décor. Wherever you are in your design process, we will make sure your firepit installation meets your needs.

Walkways

Our custom walkways will convert your Northern Virginia home to a functional and organized space. We create remarkable stone paths that make your yard easy to navigate and lead to the focal points, like patio seating, cozy fire pits, and fountains. We make sure the new pathway fits your existing aesthetic perfectly by offering a wide selection of materials. Choose from stone pavers, brick, slate or flagstone.

Lighting

We believe the smallest detail can have the biggest effect. Adding simple lighting to your outdoor space will enhance the beauty and spirit of your home dramatically. Outdoor lighting brings attention to the charming features of your backyard, illuminates pathways and provides a comforting energy and ambiance that will make your guests feel at home.

Safety is another huge benefit to bringing light into your outdoor space. Paved walkways will be visible at night so navigating your yard will be less hazardous. If you are planning on having evening get-togethers, lighting will ensure that your guests are free to roam around and enjoy your entire backyard.

Increase your home’s curb appeal and add an enchanting touch to your yard with our lighting options. We offer everything from deck lighting, patio lighting, outdoor path lighting and much more.

Patio

Installing a patio as part of your outdoor project is the best way to make your space more livable. Relaxing and hosting in your yard is close to impossible without a proper patio. Extending your living area will make your home seem bigger and will create a wonderful place for entertaining and spending time with your family. Patio design is also the perfect opportunity to show off your personality by adding personal touches which we will make a reality.

Besides increasing the value of your home, patios are easy to maintain. You will never have to put in extra effort to keep your space clean because our patios are made with the best products available and designed to withstand harsh weather conditions.
