There are many things to consider when designing the perfect outdoor space, ranging from the materials involved to the labor required. But like most things in life, the deciding factor always comes down to one thing: COST. I always tell clients that you can design anything with money; unfortunately, we all don’t have an unlimited budget. The key to turning your outdated, overgrown yard into a functional personal oasis is to work with your yard and not against it. Prioritizing where your money is best spent will ensure the most desirable result, and a properly planned out space will continue to provide value and longevity.
