From opulent outdoor kitchens to expansive firepits and fireplaces, outdoor living spaces offer a rare growth opportunity in the landscape market. Designing and installing them, however, requires a diverse set of skills - from weatherproof appliance and material selection to lighting and electrical work - that can challenge even experienced landscapers.

Learn to create the kinds of outdoor entertainment spaces high-end clients want. In this one-day program, Alex Burke covers the planning, installation, and estimating processes you need to produce a quality job at a profitable price. Learn invaluable tips and tricks from an experienced contractor and expand your customer base into a more lucrative area.

Course participants will have the opportunity to join us for a free additional day of hands-on training on April 3, 2018.
