When you go to the grocery store, do you like having a list of what you’re going to get or do you just fly by the seat of your pants? If you don’t have a list, do you ever forget something that you need at the store? That’s kind of what it’s like if you don’t have a master plan for your Edwardsville Outdoor Living Space, you’re bound to forget something. There’s nothing quite like seeing your dreams come to life but, without a plan, how do you know that you’re getting exactly what you want?
Any good landcsape designer will insist that you have a drawn out plan for your outdoor living space that they are installing, a great landscape designer will insist that you have a master plan for not only what they’re installing but what you want to potentially install in the future. This will not only save you any headaches now but will save you money in the future! In addition to trying to account for all scenarios, elevations, and the like, this also allows for you to see how the space will fit in with the style of your home and for you to see different stone choices as well as any retaining wall blocks or pavers. Everything about the space will be intentional and will be a solid investment for you to enjoy for years to come!
Like we said before, planning out any future projects on your master plan can allow for money savings in the future. Thinking about an outdoor kitchen on your paver patio space in a year? No problem, why don’t we go ahead and run the gas line and pour the concrete footing with the first phase? This will save you from having to tear up more of the paver patio than absolutely necessary in the future! Are you thinking about adding a pergola or pavilion? Let’s go ahead and put in the concrete piers so all we’ll have to do is pull up a few pavers to access them in the future. There are so many money-saving options when you’re phasing out a project that is only possible when you have a master plan!
