3D modeling has changed the outdoor living industry for the better. This powerful tool allows designers to translate architectural drawings into an attractive visual that homeowners can easily understand. But, in order to properly execute this visualization, your designer must have the ability to combine the design and build process accurately, effectively, and most importantly efficiently!

At MasterPLAN, we help you save time, money, and space by designing your backyard before we build it. Here are some of the benefits our proven design/build process brings to homeowners:

  • Visualize exactly what your space will look like

When it comes to building a new outdoor living space in the Lehigh Valley, there are many ways a plan can be presented to a homeowner. Some patio or deck contractors in Center Valley, Pennsylvania will use sketched-out paper plans. Or some contractors in the Lehigh Valley will use beautiful watercolor designs. The problem is, many of these standard plans do not allow the homeowner to visualize exactly what their space will look like because everyone’s imagination is leading them down a different path. This could result in a project that doesn’t match the true vision.


We know visualization is absolutely key in your journey to creating the backyard of your dreams.  We believe that you shouldn’t have to guess when it comes to transforming your backyard into an outdoor living space in the Lehigh Valley. This is why we take the time to help you develop a custom 3d design, collaborate on materials and finishes,  and walk you through every detail before your build begins!

  • Know exactly how much your space will cost

Nothing is worse than designing and falling in love with a space that is well over your budget and laying out a project design that won’t work on your home’s landscape is just a waste of time. This is why you need a partner who understands budgeting and has relationships with local vendors and suppliers.

When you partner with MasterPLAN, we begin the conversation about your new space by understanding your goals along with your short and long-term budget. Your custom full-color 3D design will include a Budget Study that provides a rough range of costs, laid out ala carte. Your designer will use their industry knowledge and construction experience to help you select the best finishes, materials, and features that are within your budget and achieve your outdoor living goals.

  • Properly phase your project to optimize budget

Oftentimes, patio and deck contractors in the Lehigh Valley lack the ability and tools to envision short and long-term goals. This leaves homeowners confined to limited design ideas and an inability to see ‘the big picture’ that could be built over time and without overextending the homeowner financially all at once.


MasterPLAN’s unique ability to combine the design and build process allows our team to layout your entire project into one comprehensive plan that can be built all at once or phased over time as needed! We will talk about and define the important features that should be included for each phase so that you never miss out on an opportunity to enjoy your new space-no matter what phase of the build you are in!

  • Eliminate any surprises during the construction process  

Nothing is worse than a project budget that quickly spirals out of control or a vision that fails to come to life. This is why it’s important to have a partner that you can trust who has experience building projects that are not only low maintenance and beautiful but also stand the rest of the time.

At MasterPLAN, we are designers that build. Not builders that are trying to design. This ensures that we don’t skip steps, cut corners, or eliminate project details that will truly transform your backyard into an outdoor living space you are proud of. Whether your outdoor dreams come to fruition all at once or in several phases, as long as we are operating off of one master plan, we are all moving towards the common goal of saving time, money, and space when transforming your backyard into an amazing outdoor living space.

Designing and building a new outdoor living space should be an exciting experience, but we get that you don’t want to work with a contractor that will waste your money and you don’t want to get stuck wasting your valuable time managing multiple crews, contracts, permit applications, and other important details.  You are not alone!
