Your backyard makes a huge impact on your home’s overall value. So when you’re not completely happy with the look and functionality of your space, it’s time to consider a backyard remodel. San Diego homeowners have a lot to gain from making upgrades to their landscapes and hardscape. Here are five of the top reasons why you should take the plunge and start revitalizing your backyard today.

Keep Your Property Value High

Return on Investment is the number one reason for a backyard remodel. San Diego properties are always in high demand, but upgrading your outdoor space can take your home’s value to an even higher level. With gorgeous weather year-round, SoCal residents seek out properties that will allow them to enjoy the great outdoors. Attractive and usable backyards tend to receive much higher home appraisals. Conversely, allowing your outdoor living space to fall into disrepair will significantly hold you back from boosting your home’s value.

Maximize Your Space

One of the primary reasons people don’t spend much time outdoors is that their yards are not very functional. Whether your space is hilly, full of weeds, or has an old, cracked patio, you can achieve a beautiful, functional outdoor living environment. Transform unusable hills and berms into gorgeous gardens and terraces with a stunning retaining wall. Restore beauty to your flowerbeds and walkways by eradicating weeds for good. Upgrade your cracked slab patio to a paved paradise where you can lounge and enjoy a great meal with loved ones. This is your space – maximize every square inch of it!

Reduce Maintenance Requirements

Old, worn-down hardscaping materials and unkempt landscapes require a lot of work. You may find yourself regularly needing to replace pavers as they shift out of place, or you may be dedicating a lot of time and energy to pulling weeds that seem to keep coming back no matter how hard you try to be rid of them. Hiring a professional for a full backyard remodel can help you to start fresh and eliminate the stress that goes into trying to keep up with all of the maintenance you’ve been doing.

Save Money

Although a backyard remodel requires an initial investment, there’s a good chance that you’ll end up reducing your costs over the long run. Hardscaping and xeriscaping, for example, significantly cut down on the amount of water required to maintain your property each month. Using structures like pergolas or planting new trees can increase shade, further reducing watering needs. And upgrading to a drip line and irrigation system will ensure you use only the water essential for your plants.

Live Better

When you’ve got a fabulous outdoor living environment, you’re going to spend more time in the fresh air and sun, living your healthiest, best lifestyle. You’ll be inspired to entertain guests and cook outside more. In short, you’ll start making the best use of your property.

Yelp logo

“Recently purchased my first property in San Diego. Very happy with the work that was done by Need For Build.
Danny and his team redid our entire backyard in just under three weeks! Their quote was reasonable and I felt safe going with this company.
They provided us with a 3-D design and I must say, they took our vision and brought it to life. The landscape and hardscape came out outstanding!!
The workers came on time every day and cleaned up after they were done for the day.
We have to recommend them and will not hesitate to reach out again when we’re ready for our next project.”
