The climate of Pennsylvania varies across the state. In turn landscaping practices and popular features vary too. Areas near Lake Erie receive large amounts of rainfall and landscape plants and materials must be selected accordingly. Floods can also be common, so it's important to have proper drainage and walls in place that will help protect your home.

Despite the various weather conditions, many Pennsylvania homeowners still want and use outdoor living spaces. If built with the right materials you can have a gorgeous outdoor fireplace, kitchen or pergola that will add to the value of your home and the quality of your life.
