It is definitely not too early to start your spring project planning. Warmer weather is right around the corner and will be here sooner than you think. If you are ready to transform your home’s outdoor areas into relaxing havens or welcoming spaces to entertain, dine, and play, Atlanta Porch & Patio is here to help you get started with your spring project planning.

Assess The Space (and Beyond)

Look beyond your property line to consider outside factors (the best long views, nearby neighbors, area eyesores) Tighten your scope to then examine and evaluate the entire space within your property lines. Consider what you want to keep (trees, existing landscaping), what you want to relocate or repurpose (storage structures, building materials), and what you want to completely eliminate (damaged materials, unusable areas of land). This initial diagnosis will give you a starting point for your project.

Dream Big: Create a Master Plan

Even if you are planning on only starting with a small outdoor project, it is important to ask yourself what your dream backyard looks like. Do you envision a quiet personal oasis, a welcoming spot for entertaining, or an awesome kid’s playground? Creating a master plan now allows you to consider how your current and future projects will fit into your larger vision.

Important Early Evaluations

Evaluating factors such as sun exposure, wind, drainage, and utilities (gas for a fire feature, electricity for lighting, plumbing for outdoor kitchens) early on in the planning process can prevent endless headaches and expenses in the future. Establishing your overall vision at the onset can also ensure these factors are considered in every phase of your outdoor projects, from immediate to long term.

Prioritize and Prepare a Timeline

Oftentimes a total outdoor transformation is not realistic. A structured plan allows you to break down and execute your project in logical stages to receive a cohesive final result. You can prioritize the projects that fit your initial budget and will give you the most immediate satisfaction, such as eliminating unsightly and unsafe areas.
