Hi, D-Happers! I hope you’re having a fantastic Memorial Day weekend. Do you have your grill prepped and ready for today’s cookout? Your grilling station may not be as fancy as this one pictured below, but hey, one can dream! And, who knows — maybe one day…?


This fully equipped outdoor kitchen is separate from the rest of the living space, allowing the two areas to be utilized entirely on their own. Greg Schaumburg of Hursthouse Landscape Architects & Contractors says an outdoor kitchen is most efficient when it’s zoned into logical uses. According to Greg, your cook space should have plenty of prep space, room to set down utensils and stage ingredients, and a comfortable buffer from the seating island to keep guests protected from the heat.
