We get this a lot… “How does this process work? Do you come out and discuss our thoughts and we go from there?”
Ideally the launching spot comes from your hopes and ideas for your new outdoor living space. It’s wonderful to have a handful of Houzz or Pinterest pictures that you’ve tagged and love. A few pictures of things you would rather not have is handy too.
Let’s Imagine Your New Backyard
Our initial consult is often here in our office looking at pictures or at your home walking the project. We have an exhaustive photo album and website that helps imagine various stages of your backyard. LOTS of patios, decks, pergolas and landscape pictures along with fire features and all the grill stations you can imagine.
At some point most efforts require some sort of design. Occasionally an on-site sketch can accomplish what’s necessary, but typically something more formal is required.
A few weeks from the initial meeting we gather again, at our office, to review the design and a proposal detailing all the hoped-for ideas.
Then…we determine what pieces of the design, if not all, we start with and schedule from there.
Sure, we need a small deposit and have a proposal agreement to sign.
Not a complicated process but full of complexities that we manage and address from grade changes, electrical needs, drainage issues, downspout extensions. Oh, then there is material selection…that is a blast!!!
