- Note the space and HOA limitations
- Get inspired with landscaping ideas
- Consult the experts
- Start constructing
1) Have a vision
Who’s going to be using your backyard? Do you plan to entertain? Will you need lawn space for children to play? The first step of planning an upgrade is to think about how you will use the backyard. Make a list of reasons you’d like to step out of the back door and spend time outside. Once you have a vision of what you want your backyard to look like, you’ll be able to better decide which features to choose.
2) Note the space and HOA limitations
Sometimes, even the greatest ideas have limitations. Depending on the current makeup of your backyard, you might have an electrical box or tree that will affect the placement of your features. That being said, there may also be upgrades your homeowner’s association may not allow. Before you install a new patio cover or customized pool, be sure to get HOA approval before you build to minimize future problems.
3) Get inspired with landscaping ideas
A blank slate can be the best and worst way to start a project. While you might have a vision in mind, it’s helpful to get outside inspiration for your backyard. Visit your local garden store or browse landscaping ideas online to narrow down your search. Once you have a selection of ideas, you can start deciding what will work best for your personal yard.
Pro Tip: Install a fire pit or outdoor fireplace to create a warm ambiance, roast marshmallows, and enjoy cool nights year-round.
4) Consult the experts
Once you have a clear idea of what you want, it’s time to schedule a consultation with the experts. An experienced contractor can help you sort through the options and decide which landscaping ideas to use. From a visit to your backyard to a detailed estimate, your design consultation will ultimately determine what kind of resources will be required. By setting realistic expectations, you’ll be better equipped to create your new outdoor living area.
5) Start constructing
It’s time to make your design plan come to life! Whether you need to hire a crew to build your new pool or to install your new outdoor kitchen, the final step is to set aside time for construction. With the right tools and trained personnel, you could be days away from being able to enjoy your new backyard!
