How to plan your dream backyard makeover
Wednesday Jul 07th, 2021
There are many things to love about the summer, and spending time outdoors is high on that list. So, why not create the outdoor living space of your dreams?
Here are some tips and tricks to help you get started:
Do some research
Updating your yard or patio is probably a good investment, so don’t rush into it. Take your time and think about what works best for your house and your wallet. Look at different options and think about what you and your family would get the most benefit from. Is it a water feature or an outdoor kitchen? A gazebo or storage shed?
Hire an arborist
If you have any trees in your backyard that you want to remove, call a certified utility arborist. They will have all the necessary tools to ensure the work is done in the safest way possible and that no powerlines are affected.
Contacting a utility arborist is a good idea even if you only want to prune trees that are growing close or into powerlines. Never take chances with powerlines because electricity can jump to you and your tools. Touching a tree that’s near or in contact with a powerline could result in an electric shock. Remember to keep three metres back from a powerline.
Consider a pool
If you have the space for it, a pool could make your backyard more enjoyable for the whole family. Start by choosing the type of pool based on your unique space. Above-ground pools may not seem the most attractive, and some digging might be required to level the ground, but the installation is super easy. Plus, they tend to cost much less than in-ground pools.
On the other hand, in-ground pools require a lot of work and can be expensive, but it also gives a facelift to your property. There are thousands of options to choose from, and for a little extra money, you can customize it the way you want.
