  • October 1, 2021

Many people enjoy trips to the lake to get away from the city and enjoy the water. Whether it’s renting a cabin, camping in a tent, or heading down to the lake house, the scenery and atmosphere of a lake weekend can’t be beat.

However, these happy homeowners don’t have to wait until the weekend to enjoy all of those things. That’s because they made the smart decision to work with Patrick Vogt and his team of outdoor living space experts at By The Blade. They can now enjoy an amazing backyard living space equipped with some pretty spectacular lake views.

Here are some of the highlights of this custom outdoor living area built by one of the best hardscape design companies in Parkville, Kansas City, and Leawood.

Therapy Pool

A great way to end a stressful day or to beat the heat is by taking a dip in the pool. One of the crown jewels of this outdoor living space is this majestic, heated therapy pool equipped with countless features, including:

  • Automation Controls
  • Filtration and Sanitation Systems
  • LED Colored Lighting
  • 36 Therapy Jet Nozzles
  • Natural Stone Coping
  • Automatic Cover

No detail was missed with the installation of this pool, and that’s not a surprise to us. In fact, many of our valued customers consider By The Blade to be one of the best pool design companies in Parkville, Leawood, and Kansas City.


Even when the temperatures dip down at night, your outdoor living space can still be the place to be. This custom outdoor fireplace is made with natural stone veneer and complimented with LED lighting. It also includes a custom flu capstone.

The deck at this backyard retreat was completely removed and then re-designed. Judging by the images, you could say Patrick Vogt and the By The Blade team absolutely nailed it! Large steel beams were installed underneath to allow extra space for entertaining. The deck is also equipped with a Sunsetter awning and motorized screens to create extra shade. Ceiling fans, heaters, and a high-end audio/video system help complete the living space underneath the deck.

Bar and Grill Island

If you are a fan of preparing and cooking food outdoors, this is the perfect setup for you. Underneath the deck is a kitchen that might rival some indoor kitchens! It is fully equipped with a built-in grill, refrigerator, cabinet doors for storage, LED lighting, ample counter space for food prep, and a buffet line. The natural stone veneer for this kitchen really sets it apart from many other styles of outdoor cooking stations.

The finishing touches on this beautiful design involve some gorgeous landscaping. It all starts with naturalized limestone retaining walls and stone steps spread throughout the backyard. Ornamental urns are also incorporated into the design to hold whatever flowers you prefer. To top it all off, we made sure to include a top-of-the-line irrigation system to help the lawn luscious and green from spring to late fall. All of this is accented with integrated low voltage lighting.
