Outdoor living has become increasingly popular as families look for places to relax, unwind and spend more time together. It’s a place for day-to-day living as well as for entertaining. Outdoor kitchens, bars, living rooms, fireplaces and fire pits have become the gathering places. As such, it’s important that these spaces are not only inviting, but customized to your lifestyle.
Scopewell can bring your vision to life.
While our expert designers are planning all these areas, they focus on balancing all the hardscaping and softscaping elements. The other important aspect that is kept in view is making these areas low maintenance. This has a positive impact on the overall cost of the outdoor living spaces that have been installed. Our team has the creativity and skill to create the look you want and ensure that the design of these areas blend in perfectly with the overall look of your landscaping and home structure.
Every project starts with a specification and design session. This session takes your ideas and thoughts for your outdoor space and transforms them into a well-defined project scope. Your project scope is used to price out your vision and work within your budget. Once you’ve shared your concept (including any pictures and websites you can show us) we will draft up a comprehensive scope of work that includes a design plan, material components, and production specifications and costs. Every facet of the project is managed with a meticulous attention to detail that provides the optimal mix of quality, timing, and price.
