A Guide to Designing Your Dream Backyard


If you are considering a backyard renovation project, chances are you have plenty of great ideas, but not necessarily a full-fledged design. So, how do you turn those ideas into something that can be executed? With years of experience crafting beautiful backyard designs in Los Angeles, our team is certainly familiar with the process. We’ve narrowed it down to three steps that will allow you to bring the backyard of your dreams to life.

1. Do Your Research

Especially in our area, designing a backyard space must always begin with thorough research. First things first, you will need to make sure your plans are achievable. One of our services at L.A. Decks is bringing a structural engineer and architect on location when needed to determine if municipality requirements will allow for the design you have in mind.

Once you have approval from licensed professionals, you need to determine what permits are necessary to perform the construction. Our team takes care of all permitting not only to save you the time and effort of obtaining them, but to ensure nothing gets missed. You will also want to learn more about the cost associated with carrying out your vision, as well as the time it will take to do so. The more you know about the construction process, the more confident you will feel moving forward.

2. Consider Your Needs

While you may have taken the time to consider a few aspects of your backyard that you’d like to change, it is important to truly evaluate all of your needs before deciding on a design. How will the time in your backyard be spent? Are there others to consider, such as children, a spouse or pets? Will the deckingmaterial or pavers you have been yearning for make sense for your space, and will either require regular maintenance? Furthermore, are there budget restrictions to keep in mind? While dreaming is a fantastic way to begin your design process, it is equally important to be realistic.

3. Work With a Skilled Designer
