Did you just move into a new house that you love, but the backyard doesn’t…
Spring is an excellent time for a new patio installation. The colder weather has passed, and you’re itching to spend time outside – grilling, chatting with friends, and eating al fresco. However, it may be depressing to look at if your existing patio is in disrepair.
Or if you have a new home, you may have a little postage-stamp size patio or deck dwarfed by your home. You deserve better, and it’s time to get inspired and spring into fabulous outdoor living with a new patio.
Consider Added Outdoor Living Features
Why stop with just the patio? To create a truly memorable outdoor living experience, consider adding an outdoor kitchen, fireplace, or a built-in fire pit. Better yet, add all three! When you hire the right outdoor living contractor, the sky’s the limit as to what you can include in your overall patio design. This case is especially true if you have a larger property. But you can also make things work with a smaller backyard.
If you plan on installing an inground pool now or in the future, consider working with an outdoor living contractor who can design and build everything. You will have a cohesive plan even if you do things in phases.
Work with Your Yard
You don’t need heavy equipment to grade your yard flat to put in your new patio. Instead, work with the unique topographical features of your yard. Consider adding retaining walls for erosion control and additional seating. Think about multiple levels with stairs that take you to a change in elevation. This scenario is perfect for developing different outdoor rooms and conversation areas.
How do you start designing your outdoor paradise?
Start by doing your research. Start looking at patio designs online to get inspired and understand what you like and don’t like. Next, ask friends, neighbors, and coworkers for recommendations for patio builders. If you like a friend’s patio, their contractor might be an excellent place to start.
Check out the websites for the recommended patio contractors. Do they do large-scale, high-end projects like the one you have in mind? Rule out contractors who don’t fit your vision. Read their reviews – you want someone with many reviews and at least a 4-star rating. How do they respond to negative reviews? That will indicate how you can expect them to communicate with you.
Select at least three highly recommended patio design and build firms with spectacular portfolios and glowing reviews. Schedule consultations, and hire the company with the best patio design and process to help ensure you get the patio you deserve.
