Planning for Spring

Starting A New Outdoor Project


We all are wishing for the arrival of Spring and the trend of snow showers across the Northern US seems like it is never going to happen. Now is the time to start thinking about your outdoor environment, before Spring arrives.

Planning Outdoor Projects

If you are considering transforming an outdoor area of your home or patio, follow these simple steps.

  1. Snap Pics- taking pics of the space gives you the opportunity to draw your plans on the pictures. This helps to visualize the area.
  2. Start searching of idea online communities like Pinterest, Houzz, and home & garden websites.
  3. Create a list of things you want in your new space.- considering things like outdoor grilling areas, new patio furniture, fountains, and garden statuary.
  4. Create a budget. Planning the budget is what makes any project successful. Make sure to add an additional 10–15% of unexpected costs that will occur no matter how great you are at planning. It’s the 10–15% that makes the project awesome.
