Renovating your backyard is a great way to add value to your home and enhance your lifestyle. It can also be a cost-effective project.
Husband-and-wife tech entrepreneurs Allison Rhodes Messner and Adam Messner created Yardzen, a new service that allows clients to revamp their outdoor space without ever setting foot on the property.
Whether your backyard is meant for lively pool parties, family barbecues or restful evenings after the kids are in bed, we can help you create a welcoming retreat that suits your lifestyle. Our experienced team will outfit your space with features like outdoor kitchens, water features, seating areas and gorgeous plantings to soften the hardscapes.
After gathering video, measurements and photos, your expert will provide you with a detailed design plan within your Angi dashboard. This includes 3D renderings, shopping lists, plant lists and full CAD designs to help you DIY or bring in contractors. You’ll also receive a budget breakdown and prioritized action plans if you choose to complete your project in phases.
Very professional and friendly service. They listened to what we wanted, worked with us on revisions and provided a very nice plan.
We offer a variety of design services, starting with a free consultation of your yard and garden. We’ll discuss how you use your space, the style and aesthetic you want, what you’re willing to spend and your maintenance style (hands-on or hands-off). This helps us develop a plan that will work for you and meet your goals, while still keeping within your budget.
A good backyard remodel should be designed with the user in mind, including you, family members, pets, and neighbors. We will take into account the traffic patterns through the property and consider the privacy of your space. We will also look at the site’s microclimates and drainage concerns. For example, we will often create pathways that move through gardens and relieve foot traffic from the lawn and protect surrounding plants from being trampled.
Our landscape designers will develop a master plan that organizes natural and man-made features into an aesthetic, functional, and sustainable design. This will allow you to enjoy your outdoor spaces and make them a part of your daily life.
This includes creating outdoor rooms for eating, playing, entertaining, and relaxing. It may include creating an inviting swimming pool, water feature, or fire pit. We’ll also include hardscape features such as pavers, walkways, and driveways.
A backyard design can be as simple or complex as you’d like it to be. We can incorporate existing shrubs, trees, and plants into the design or install new ones. We can also add structures such as pergolas, arbors, and trellises to provide a focal point for your backyard oasis.
We can even build structures that are a combination of these elements, such as this cozy seating area, which frames a beautiful but invasive trumpet vine while offering a comfortable spot to relax.
Many backyard redesign services offer a menu of options, starting with a free consultation. Tilly Design, for instance, offers a half-hour consultation and two follow-up emails with a design expert. You’ll supply a video of your backyard, the desired layout, and your budget, and the designer will send you 3D renderings and full CAD designs that can be shared with contractors.
If your backyard renovation plans include hardscape elements such as walkways, patios and fences, you’ll need to choose the materials that best match the style of your home. MetroGreenscape’s design team will help you select materials that complement your home’s architectural style and that fit within your budget. Consider how you use the yard, which activities will be incompatible and where the kids play and run; these are all important factors when choosing your hardscape materials. You should also consider how much time and money you’re willing to spend on maintenance and upkeep. MetroGreenscape can recommend a variety of low-maintenance materials that will save you time and money.
When possible, try to reuse construction materials from the original garden or structure. This will reduce your environmental impact and keep old materials out of the waste stream.
Whether you’re in need of backyard design services to outfit your new home or to renovate and maintain your existing outdoor landscape, you can count on our experts for a wide range of landscaping installation options. We can create lush, mature plantings that soften your hardscapes and add a bit of color. We can also install paver patios, retaining walls, water features, fire pits, and barbecues.
The team at BACQYARD truly cares about their customers and the quality of work they produce. Their attention to detail and friendly approach make working with them a joy!
This outdated yard needed a makeover. Replacing grass with stone makes it easy to share the space with kids and pets, while a fresh seating area and flower beds make this backyard feel like a relaxing retreat.
