Plan Your Project for Overall Success: We’ll Help!
Updated: Jan 21, 2022
How do you get the best outdoor installation results?
It's easy to choose the best company. Maybe so, but there's a little more to it than that, too. One of our best workers used to say “anybody can build something but it takes some skill to plan it.” That rings true in a lot of cases, especially when craftsmanship is not matched with the integrity to start off with a solid, defined plan.
We bring a specialized design approach to our exterior projects and we are committed to the idea that we will always collaborate with our customers to get the results that they envision when they called us in the first place! Is that a little thing? Not really, as you’ll see if you ask an experienced project manager.
With that in mind, here are some of the things that you can do to start refining your design idea as we go to work for you.
Draw it Out
One option is to simply sketch out your exterior plan. Try to envision how everything will look together – flagstones and trees, and pavers, and anything else that's going to interact to create that robust scene that you want in your exterior space.
Through this drawing process, you’ll probably come up with questions and nail down some details of what you want. That's vital information to have when we start the project – and we’ll be in touch with you every step of the way!
Aside from drawing a plan and looking at the logistics of how everything will be installed, you can also think about the impact of light on your project. This isn't really something you can draw – light is something that provides a certain ambience. What you can do is look at our project gallery and other imagery, and come up with a concept that way, brainstorming actively as you go along, and again, asking questions.
Water and Fire
Water and fire are two functional elements of an exterior plan. If you have a pool or hot tub or some type of water space, think about how that's going to interact with your paving and surfaces. If you're going to be having a fire pit installed, take a moment to consider how that firelight will radiate out from its central housing. That natural light will make a difference, too!
