Nothing is more relaxing than the sound of trickling water. Pool & Spas, stone ponds, tier fountains and wetland remediation are fantastic additions to an outdoor space. If irrigation is your concern we’re licensed NC Irrigation contractors as well.

Cooking outdoors on a warm summer day beats the kitchen every time. Adding an outdoor grill or roaster, fireplace, or firepit is a stanley additon to any property. Make a quality focal point for gathering with friends at all times of the year.

Hardscape can provide key directional and focal points of a property. When it comes to driveways, walkways, terraces, and patios, a little design can go a long way in both form and function. From brick to natural stone, we can make a difference.

  • Element is awesome to work with. They did a great job on my yard including addressing some drainage issues. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. I was traveling and came home to a whole new house! Thanks Element Outdoor Living for doing a great job. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to vastly improve their outdoor living space.

  • Element did a wonderful job in transforming the exterior of our home from something mundane into a colorful garden setting that I'm sure we'll enjoy for years. Blair Walton is a pleasure to work with: a creative visionary who's energetic and full of great ideas. Jeff and the crew were professional, competent and courteous. We recommend the company highly, and hope to use its maintenance services for as long as we own our home.

  • We are still in awe of the amazing transformation in our back yard. It went from brown and dead to green and alive in the middle of winter! Blair worked closely with us through each phase of the project to ensure that we were getting exactly what we wanted. There were many new plants but what really impressed us was that he transplanted what we already had so that they were in the correct places for sun, shade and water as well as in a spot that was esthetically pleasing. There was absolutely no waste! The crew did an amazing job also. They worked tirelessly and completed the entire job in only 2 days. At the end of the first day, before they left, the entire yard, patios and walkways were all clean and neat. We are looking forward to many years of enjoyment in our beautiful yard. Thank you Blair and crew for the fantastic job.

  • It was a pleasure knowing that exactly what I wanted done to my backyard would become a reality. Element was meticulous, caring, and prompt with the design and installation of my backyard water features and garden. I look forward to working with Blair and his team for years to come as we embark on this journey with our property.

  • Element Outdoor Living brought creative ideas and outstanding installation skills to our small downtown garden where every inch counts. The crew works hard and stays on schedule. We can't say enough good things about them and Blair's hands-on approach.

  • From my first meeting with Blair Walton, I knew we had the right designer and landscaper. I came armed with a list of plants I admired and a few pieces of collected and personal yard art and Blair carefully and professionally directed a landscape design that fit my every desire and practical need. I never anticipated that my yard could be the visual masterpiece it is becoming or that my small downtown plot could physically handle all that I desired in a livable yard. Thank you Blair and Elemental Outdoor Living for turning my dream space into a reality!
