Planning Your Landscape Project In 2021

outdoorkitchens projectPlanning a landscape project can be a daunting task. Approaching it in phases can help make the project more manageable. This guide summarizes the different elements involved in planning.


1. Get Inspiration From Designs You Love

What do you want? This is where you should begin. Here are some questions to ask yourself.

  • What styles do you like? Traditional, Modern, Rustic, Contemporary?
  • What do you want to feature? Patio, Pool, Driveway, Walkway, Garden Wall, Fireplace, Outdoor Kitchen?
  • What are your must-have’s? Do you need wheelchair access? Is bright lighting essential?

These are good questions to begin with. You may be unsure of what you want, and that is okay. Start looking at pictures and save what you like. We recommend exploring designs on Pinterest or Houzz. Both sites make it easy to find fresh ideas and save them for inspiration.

Pinterest allows you to create a pinboard and save pins (images) to it. There is no limit to the number of pinboards you can create, so don’t hesitate to start multiple pinboards for each distinct style you like. Our Barkman Pinterest page features boards for outdoor kitchens, driveways, creative paths and more. Houzz uses a similar concept called idea books. Our Barkman Pinterest page features many different pinboards to give inspiration.
