Ready For a Backyard Upgrade But Not Sure Where to Start?

by | May 24, 2024

Many homeowners begin with creating an area that protects them from the elements, whether it be a fully enclosed sunroom, a breezy screened in porch, a detached patio with a gazebo or simply a pergola for an existing deck or concrete slab.

Things to consider before you begin:

Budget. If you are envisioning a large transformation, it might be best to break the project down into phases. This allows you to assess your progress as you move through the different stages, adjusting your aesthetic and budget as yo

Neighborhood restrictions and allowances. If you live in a neighborhood with a homeowners association or building restrictions, make sure you check with the powers that be to ensure you don’t create something that is not permitted only to be forced to remove it and pay hefty fines.

Aesthetic. Are you the “classical” style type? Maybe you love the sleek and clean lines of modern architecture. One of the best ways to find out what style suits you are to search online resources and compile them all into files to show your contractors when you start getting bids.

Time frame for completion. If you are working on a deadline such as your favorite Niece’s dream garden wedding she has asked to host in your backyard, make sure you convey these details to your contractors before you accept their bid and begin work. Be sure they have a clear understanding and a reasonable timeline for completion, so you aren’t stuff with a giant mess for the bride to navigate through as she walks down the aisle.
