When Frank and I were looking for a new home, one of the non-negotiable items for us was a completed backyard. We didn’t want to be stuck with just plain dirt for a backyard. Been there, done that. We did not want to buy a home and then wonder, who do we hire to design our dream backyard? Can we do this ourselves? Do we want to do this ourselves?
I knew that I would not have the time, energy or creativity to design, plant and build out the yard if we started with dirt. It is not my area of expertise nor Frank’s. Did we want to take time to research, interview and research some more for a company that could do the job for us? At that point in time, no.
Rather than buy a home with a “blank canvas”, we chose to buy a home with a backyard already designed and built. And we were lucky enough to have found a home with a wonderful backyard. Granted, our dogs have eaten a plant or two…..or three. But that is a small price to pay for the loyal companionship from our goofy canines.
However, if you’re considering adding a new yard, or re-designing your current yard, you don’t have to go at it alone. There are companies like Desert Designer that can help you design your dream backyard. From the landscaping to the pool, maybe adding an out-door barbecue area. A fire pit would be a nice touch, as well. They offer so many possibilities, so many ideas. With their skill they can help you bring the backyard of your dreams from paper into a reality.
