Being in California with year round temps that hardly ever drop below 50 degrees, we enjoy the outdoors. Whether you're buying a new home or just looking to spruce up your backyard, here are a few of the most popular outdoor features to add to your yard.

1. Fire Pits - Who doesn't love a cozy fire at night? Whether it's roasting marshmallows on warm summer nights, or cozying up with cocoa, a fire pit brings life to the backyard and is great for entertaining.

2. Low-Maintenance Landscapes - It's no secret that So Cal is a desert and, until recently, needed all the help it could get for a supply of water. Fortunately, we came out of the drought, but that doesn't mean the future doesn't hold more these dry seasons. Having drought tolerant landscaping is not only low maintenance, but more cost affordable too.

3. Outdoor Lighting - Two words: cafe lights. They're all the rage and provide a nice ambiance for your backyard, patio, or deck. Illuminate your walkways with LED lighting - front and back yards.

4. Natural-Looking Materials -  Natural looking stone accents and hardscape can dress up your yard.

5. Interiorscapes - Bring the outdoors in.  Interiorscape is becoming quite popular bringing life in to your home.
