4 Secrets to Creating an Unforgettable Backyard

Posted November 19, 2020 in 3D Design, Blog, General, Videos

No one should worry about being embarrassed to host family and friends in their backyard. Nor should you have to bribe your family to spend more time together outside. This is why every homeowner deserves a remarkable backyard that invites your family and friends outdoors. The good news is that creating an unforgettable backyard is achievable! But it does take some proper planning, budgeting, and the right partner to help bring your vision to life.

Learn the 3 secrets to save time, money, and space when building the backyard of your dreams:

  • Establish your realistic budget

Now more than ever building the perfect backyard will not only improve your lifestyle and at-home enjoyment but will also improve your home’s resale value. Determining a feasible budget for your vision could be difficult and you probably have no idea how much your project should cost.

We understand an outdoor living space is a significant investment for most homeowners. The last thing we want to do is design a space that costs 10x more than your construction budget. This is why we discuss your project budget very early on in our process. During our initial conversation, you and your MasterPLAN designer will discuss your vision, budget, and goals for your new outdoor living space.

  • Visualize exactly how your backyard could look

Visualizing exactly how your new backyard will look is the first step on the journey of creating the backyard of your dreams. You will collaborate one-on-one with your MasterPLAN designer to create every amenity and unique feature for your new backyard.

Your custom 3D design will allow you to feel how each decision will connect with your home. This ensures that you are confident and comfortable with every feature of your backyard before construction begins!

  • Know exactly how much your investment will cost- no surprises!

The cost of building a deck, patio, roof, or pool can easily spiral out of control. This is why it is important to know exactly how much your project will cost before you dive into any outdoor construction projects.

At MasterPLAN, we will help you understand exactly how much your investment will cost. Your custom full-color 3D design will include a Budget Study. Your budget study will be comprehensive and easy to understand. It will provide a rough range of costs, laid out ala carte, so you understand all of your investment options and can make the best decisions for your home and family.

  • Work with the right partner to build your vision

Transforming your backyard should be free from stress and hassle. But oftentimes we hear from frustrated homeowners that have been burned by contractors. They have shared stories about projects plagued with construction delays, issues with permits or approvals, dirty project sites and unprofessional contractors, or worse….an incomplete project. This is not fair!

We believe that you should enjoy the entire process of transforming your backyard. This is why we handle all the heavy lifting of your build and keep you updated every step of the way! You will receive weekly phone calls and emails about your project’s status so you know exactly what is happening at your home. You will always know who will be on your property, when they will arrive, how long they will be there, and all the important details about the status of your construction. This eliminates surprises and ensures the entire process of transforming your backyard is easy, fun, and stress-free!
