One of the most common questions we get asked by our clients here at WA Luxury Landscaping is “What do we need to consider when we want to do a major yard renovation?”
Now this isn’t about style (though we get asked a lot of questions on that too) as most people have a pretty good idea what they want when they come to us.
What we find is our clients haven’t considered the major nuts and bolts that bring it all together; these things include infrastructure, required approvals, building standard and more.
To help you understand what needs to be addressed in order to make your dream a reality, have a look below for some landscaping advice and considerations you will need to address:
Major Existing Infrastructure
Dial Before You Dig is not a choice when you are starting a major project. The frustration of interrupted services such as power, telecommunications, gas, water and sewerage is bad enough without the added costs you can incur for accidentally cutting or damaging any of these services during your project.
Most people know that if you are going to build a structure of any description in your yard that you need council approval. Patios, major paving projects, pools, large water features all require council approval. For more information on this, give WA Luxury Landscaping a call for advice, contact your Local Council or do some research at the Department of Commerce website.
Just like you require building approvals for major builds on your property, these projects must also be completed to a set standard or you may be faced with fines and large costs in rebuilding or fixing any mistakes made. Be sure you understand the quality required before you start. If you allow us to assist you in the planning and design of your project you can be reassured that all planning approvals, build standards and major infrastructure checks will be addressed with you so you can seek approvals with confidence. For more information on this, we encourage you to do some research at the Department of Commerce website.
After these major factors have been addressed, the rest is up to you. This is where you have the freedom to create your perfect entertaining area, fantastic garden, feature walls or pool paving.
