3 Mistakes to Avoid When Planning Backyard Renovations

  • Chasing Trends – Landscaping design goes through trends just like fashion does, and one mistake we see many people make with their backyard renovations is chasing those trends. If you genuinely like a particular trend, that’s great, and we can help you incorporate it into your design. However, you should also remember that you don’t have to include trendy elements if you don’t want to—if you only include them for fashion’s sake, you won’t get long-term satisfaction from your finished design.
  • Designing for the Wrong Climate – Another common mistake people make when planning backyard renovations is choosing plants that are not suited to the local climate. This is a big problem here in Florida, as many of the most popular flowers simply can’t grow in our tropical environment. However, our team can help you select beautiful plants native to the region and combine them into a harmonious landscape design you will love.
  • Order of Operations Errors – A third easy mistake to make when working on backyard renovations is doing the steps in an inefficient order. For example, we’ve seen cases where people finish putting in new plantings, only to have the plants be trampled by the workers who come in to install a patio. Our team will make sure all the steps are completed in the right order, so we don’t have to re-do the work.
