Preplanning Your Spring Hardscaping Project

Are you itching for warmer weather so you can tackle those latent outdoor projects? Spring is right around the corner, and so is your patio update or other hardscaping design. Pittsburgh-based FJ Baehr Architects offers some tips to get started in the planning phase.

Our expert design team will consider your project from a variety of angles: space, style, maintenance, privacy needs, budget, and material durability for long-term success.

How FJ Baehr Architects can partner with you

Not sure where to start or how to work with the space you’ve got? When it comes to investing in your property, consider working with an architect so that you avoid pitfalls and reach your goal sooner. FJ Baehr Architects has helped homeowners achieve the outdoor space of their dreams.

How do you plan to use the space?

Sometimes it’s helpful to work backwards—by considering how you want to use the space and then figuring out a plan to accomplish that.

At FJ Baehr Architects, we embrace what makes your property and project unique. Maybe you’re looking to entertain outdoors, create a casual family gathering spot, or simply turn a blank slate into a peaceful place to unwind after a stressful work week.

Whether an outdoor kitchen is on your must-have list or a casual fire pit for family S’mores, our team can create a plan to achieve your goal that’s within your budget.


How you can prepare for meeting with our design team

Take a look online, at magazines, at your friends’ properties. Figure out what you love. Stone? Brick? Sleek and modern? It’s never too early to do this research.

From there, whether you want high-end sophistication or maintenance-free, there are an array of materials available. The surer you are about how you envision your outdoor living space to be, the easier our job will be, but we have worked with clients at every stage.
