Posted February 20, 2020 in Blog, Decks, Fire Feature, Landscape Design, Outdoor Kitchen, Patio and Walkway

Are you considering a backyard renovation, but don’t know where to start? Should you hire a landscape contractor, local pool company, deck builder, patio builder, or a roof and siding installer? When choosing a contractor for your backyard renovations in the Poconos, Lehigh Valley, Main Line of Philadelphia, or western New Jersey, you have a wide selection of qualified contractors, but if you don’t know who to hire or where to start you are probably feeling frustrated and lost.

At MasterPLAN Outdoor Living, we believe that you deserve a partner that will guide you through every step of your backyard transformation. This is precisely why MasterPLAN has helped hundreds of homeowners—just like you– begin their backyard renovations with a design they love before any shovels hit the ground!

Here the Top 3 reasons you should design your backyard renovations before you let us do all the heavy lifting to complete your build:

1. Save Time by designing your backyard transformation before your build

When you design your new backyard before we build it, there are far fewer steps in the process. You will avoid the typical delays associated with a design-bid-build project by visualizing all aspects of your new backyard. With a custom 3D design, you will have the opportunity to walk through every aspect of your backyard design and select important details such as the style of the pavers in your new patio or the color of the stone veneer on your new outdoor fireplace.

Visualizing all aspects of your new backyard before construction begins will minimize potential change orders throughout your build and you will avoid wasting time throughout your project!

2. Save Money by designing your backyard transformation before your build

In addition to saving you time, designing your backyard before we build it will also save you money! Starting your backyard renovations with a custom 3D design ensures that your designers and contractors are on the same page from the start of your project through completion which will aid in saving money throughout your build.

When you start your backyard transformation with a design, you will receive your construction schedule and your associated costs upfront so you can eliminate any surprises and avoid wasting money throughout your build!

3. Save Space by designing your backyard transformation before your build

When planning a backyard transformation, you must look at your yard from every angle to make sure you will properly utilize your outdoor living space.

You will probably want to consider your current and future lifestyle. Will your family be expanding? Will your children be leaving the nest?  How many people will you be entertaining in your new outdoor living space? Beginning your backyard transformation with a custom 3D design will allow you to picture how you will use every aspect of your backyard so you can avoid wasting space! 

Planning a new backyard should be exciting! But, we get how overwhelming it is to visualize your perfect backyard and select the right contractor.  You are not alone! This is precisely why MasterPLAN has helped hundreds of Pennsylvania and New Jersey homeowners -just like you- transform their backyards into remarkable outdoor living spaces.
