To DIY or Not to DIY

One of the advantages Surroundings and our Surroundscape process has over home improvement and outdoor furniture stores is that we can do all the installation for you. If all you need is outdoor dining furniture and a new grill, it probably makes sense that you can put it together yourself and arrange it on the deck or patio.

But what if you want to run a gas line from your home out to the grill so you don’t have to worry about propane bottles? That takes a little more planning and coordination with professional tradespeople. Is the afternoon sun a little harsh over the deck? A pergola or awning would be a great solution, but you don’t have the time or the know-how to safely install it. Or the flagstone pavers you want to add to the yard, or the upgrade to the irrigation system for the raised-bed herb garden, or even the raised-bed herb garden itself.

Doing an outdoors-improvement job yourself is a great way to save money and give you the satisfaction of completing a project. But if you’re not exactly sure what you’re doing, hiring a professional in the long run can often save money – and frustration. Face it, would you rather spend every weekend all summer building your outdoor space or enjoying it?

That’s where the Surroundscape installation options come in handy. We can install as much or as little of the components for your outdoor living area as you like. We have great relationships with trade partners that we’ve certified in our installation process, so you contract with us to complete the entire job and we will oversee everyone else, making sure the job is done correctly and safely within the timeline we establish. All you need to do is prepare to enjoy your new space.

Whether you choose one of our semi-custom design packages for your outdoor space, a complete custom design, or just select some furnishings from our showroom floor, Surroundscape will help provide you with the outdoor space you’ll appreciate for years to come.
