- What is an outdoor living space?
An outdoor living space is an extension of your home into your backyard. If often times will consist of a patio, fire source, and some seating but the possibilities for what you can create are really endless.
- Does an outdoor living space increase the value of my home?
Yes. An outdoor living space will increase the value of your home. A National Association of Realtors survey shows more than half of surveyed buyers would pay a premium for a home with an outdoor living space. Many buyers consider these spaces as a bonus living area that does not require heating or cooling and minimal maintenance.
However, if not planned and executed properly, your new outdoor living space may not add value to your home. Planning your space is the key to success and that is where we come in. We work with you every step of the way. From creating a design that not only fits your vision but is functional and beautiful, to selecting the right materials, to installing and maintaining your outdoor living space, we are intimately involved in every facet of your project.
- What is the process for creating my outdoor living space?
The first step in creating your outdoor living space is to properly plan. We will give you ideas and suggestions, but we encourage all of our clients to really think about what they want as part of their outdoor space. Send us things you like on Pinterest or Instagram!
Next, we get into incorporating all of your ideas into a design and budget. We take extensive measurements and work with you to create the exact design you are looking for. This allows us to create a preliminary estimate and then move on to selecting materials for your job.
At this point, you have already given us an idea on what materials you would like to use, but we accompany all of our customers to local supply yards to go over the material options and make sure everything will work in your outdoor space. When selecting the materials, choosing the right materials for the job is as essential as the plan itself and will make a world of difference in the finished product.
After finalizing the design and materials, we are ready to begin the installation process. We carefully mark out all of the various elements of your hardscaping before installation which allows you to see how everything will be laid out. When the installation is finished, your yard is left clean and ready for your enjoyment.
- What can be included in an outdoor living space?
When selecting what to use in your outdoor living space, the possibilities can be overwhelming. With proper planning and expert advice, we can make the process painless. The materials you choose should be based on your lifestyle and how you will use the space.
