How to Streamline the Design, Construction, and Maintenance of your Backyard

Posted January 9, 2020 in General, Landscape Design, Landscape Maintenance

Are you looking to upgrade your backyard, but you don’t know where to start? Perhaps you are thinking about a new patio with an outdoor kitchen and bar. Or maybe it is a custom pool with unique water features adjacent to a fire pit for the kids to roast marshmallows on a chilly evening.

When exploring concepts for your outdoor living space, instead of hiring a landscape designer or a landscape contractor, you should really find a firm that does it all. By working with a design-build firm to transform your backyard, you will gain a trusted partner that is committed to creating an outdoor living space that you are proud of and a fun journey that you will want to tell your family and friends about.

Let’s explore some of the benefits you will experience by utilizing MasterPLAN Outdoor Living’s proven process to streamline the design, construction, and maintenance of your backyard.

Increase Efficiency and Improve Communication 

Communication is key when bringing any vision to life, and the typical design-bid-build method can cause a lot of frustration to homeowners and finger-pointing among multiple trade professionals. When you choose MasterPLAN, your designers and contractors are on the same team from your initial consultation through your project’s completion. Your dedicated designer will be in the field checking in with construction crews frequently and providing detailed updates to you and your family every step of the way.

MasterPLAN’s proven design-build process promotes the highest levels of collaboration and efficiency among all team members by providing a single source of responsibility for all aspects of your project. The result is a timeless design, early project budget, tighter schedules, and improved risk management.

Project Planning and Phasing 

If your design goals are slightly larger than your current budget, working with a design-build firm will be key in properly phasing your backyard transformation. When deciding how to properly phase your project the MasterPLAN team carefully listens to your priorities and develops a phasing plan that is within your budget and logistically sound.

While phasing your project, your design-build team will carefully consider items such as permitting, site access, material purchasing, foundations and other items that will impact each phase of your project. By strategically phasing your outdoor living space, your design-build team will ensure that your backyard looks complete no matter what phase your project is in.

Maintenance and Longevity 

Are you postponing your new patio, deck, outdoor kitchen, or outdoor fireplace because you fear it will require a ton of maintenance?

When you are ready to upgrade your backyard, don’t be deterred by the maintenance you think it will require. At MasterPLAN, your designer is committed to providing you with low maintenance options that mesh perfectly with your lifestyle.
