Know Your Budget
Homeowners are spending more and more on their outdoor space every year. This includes, patios, landscaping, gardening and high end fixtures such as pools, hot tubs, barbecues, lighting, waterfalls, etc. It can get pretty overwhelming, so your best bet is to decide on your budget and go from there.
Plan Your Outdoor Space
A great thing to do, is decide what type of outdoor space you want. Maybe you like to garden, raised garden beds are pretty and practical. Or maybe you ant more entertaining space, look into fire pits and built in grills. A great addition to the backyard is a patio or deck. They come in all different ways, from pressed concrete to wood and even composite decks. You may also want to consider how much time you want to put in to upkeep. If you are willing to have a demanding landscape, you may want to factor in a gardner budget to maintain your space after the project.
The most important thing to consider before you begin is how big your space is and what is allowed in your neighborhood. Every state, city, town and neighborhood is different. For example, Somerset Borough does not allow an outdoor fire unless you are cooking. Some homeowner associations also forbid fire pits, and may dictate fence styles and paint color.
