Are you ready to transition from dreaming about your outdoor living area project to taking the first steps to make it a reality? If so, it can be helpful to understand the basics of the design and build process.
Outdoor living areas are not your basic start-and-finish projects. They take time and rely heavily on careful planning and consideration. Budget, available space, environmental conditions, and personal preferences are all key factors that must be deliberated. Below, we have compiled a list of FAQ’s regarding the construction of outdoor living spaces.
The first step is one of the easiest! Reach out to us by phone, our website, or social media to schedule a consultation. We’ll get you set up with a designer to assess your property and discuss your outdoor living goals. These appointments typically last an hour. Once your designer has a solid understanding of your needs and wants, they will put together a design for you to review.
There is no rushing perfection; however, once the designers get to work, the job will be completed promptly. Turnaround time can vary depending on project size and materials. Creating an elaborate design is an involved process, but rest assured that the designers won’t keep you waiting.
Using all the tools at our disposal, we’ll deliver a plan that covers every last detail. Taking the extra minute to produce a precisely measured and proportioned design will save time down the road. Once your plan is finalized, you’ll be added to the construction queue and development will be underway as soon as possible.
We can’t provide an exact time frame due to the many external factors that may affect construction, but we can make an educated guess based on previous projects. Timelines can vary, but your designer will let you know what to expect once your design is complete. The field crews involved make a huge difference, and ours are the best in the business. Not only will you be pleased with the finished product, but you’ll appreciate our efficiency, quality, and integrity while working. When the crews are done, a supervisor will walk through your property with you to ensure that every detail meets your expectations. If not, they’ll formulate a plan to correct any issues.
Clients are often concerned that they will have to put up with a huge mess. Luckily, we take pride in maintaining clean job sites, and we’ll disrupt your yard as little as possible. This benefits both parties, as we are able to maintain clear walkways and easy visualization of the project development. If your scope of work involves removing concrete or existing hardscapes, a mess is to be expected. To minimize disorder and maximize organization, we will place a dumpster in your driveway and clean the site at the end of each day.
Our goal is to create a final product that you absolutely love. We want you to be excited for your project, not worried about the construction process. Our designers and contractors are all there to make your life easier. Tell them what you need and watch the magic happen!
