5 Tips for Planning a Garden Remodel
  • Opening Intro -

    Sometimes trimming the hedge and planting a few new colorful flowers simply isn't enough; you may have decided that what your garden really needs is a complete renovation, on a large scale.

-------------------------------------

This is a great idea if your current outside space simply isn’t working for you, but has the complete potential to be something different – and exactly how you want it to be.

Below are 5 tips when planning your garden remodeling.

Create a Budget and Detailed Plan

You may have a general idea of what you want to gain from your garden remodel, but sometimes a rough idea isn’t enough.

It’s always better to make a note of exactly what you want to achieve, right down to the last decorative detail, in order to better implement a budget and work out exactly what you need to do to accomplish everything on the list, within your budget.

Hire Equipment

If you’re planning a full-scale remodel, then you may need the help of professional construction equipment to get the job done properly. This could be anything from utility vehicles to fork-lifts, if you need assistance moving heavy items such as paving or stone, on a much larger scale.

In the initial planning stages of your remodel, consider exactly what you want to achieve in your remodel, and the best way to achieve it – you may need to hire equipment and external contractors to help get the job done efficiently. Reliable construction equipment providers will be able to help you with your requirements.

Be Cautious with Excavation

If you’re planning on digging and venturing deep into the ground, and you have never done so before, it may be the case that there is rock or stone underneath. It’s not always guaranteed that you’ll have soft soil to overturn wherever you begin to dig, so take extra precautions and planning in case you hit unexpected stone or discover something under the ground which you didn’t expect to be there, as this can change your plans.

Decide on Lawn or Stone

The main choice to make when it comes to a garden overhaul is whether you prefer stone or grass. A lot of people prefer the practicality of paving or gravel, where they don’t have to worry about constantly cutting and maintaining their lawn, whereas others couldn’t imagine having a garden without lush, green grass. A remodel is the perfect time to make the decision on what works best for you, so take the time to think about your long-term plans and what sort of ground you would prefer for your outdoor space.

Plan Who Will Do the Work

There will be a lot of tasks you can fulfill yourself, but for large remodeling, it’s likely you may need the help of construction workers or professional contractors. You should make enquiries and fit these costs into your remodeling budget if necessary. You can always seek the advice of professionals in the first instance if you’re unsure, as you may be able to do more yourself than you initially thought.
