Things You Must Know Before Renovating Your Outdoor Space
Renovating can be a complex task, so planning correctly will not only result in your space looking spectacular, it will also help you stick to your budget – which can quickly get out of control without careful consideration.
In the last five years, Americans have spent an average $10,646 on patio or landscape projects. 19% of the projects completed were of high quality and cost an average of $31,152. Homeowners in Washington DC, spent an average $74,500.
These kinds of figures can be overwhelming, but the best way to keep your patio within your budget requirements is to plan ahead by knowing your parameters.
Before you start your project, determine exactly how much time you are willing to spend on maintaining your space. Creating a large landscaped area when you’re not a keen gardener could see you forking out regularly for a professional to keep it in order.
The hiring of a landscape professional may also save you money in the long run, but be clear with them about your overall budget.
