What are the best backyard designs?
The best backyard designs are ones that are aesthetically appealing, well-organized and create curb appeal.

Once pictures and plans have been downloaded and printed, focus on the needs of all the family members and answer a few questions. Will we be entertaining family and friends outside?

The answers to these questions will help define the outdoor spaces renovation budget and create a baseline for expectations.
