Designing Your Backyard Oasis
Do you dedicate your outdoor space to dining and entertaining but feel like it lacks intimacy? Do you have a large area in your backyard, but find it feels empty or sounds far from secluded?
We’ll help you re-envision your backyard with a landscape design that will improve your outdoor living and increase your home’s value.

“After being ghosted by several contractors, we contacted Royal Decks and were pleasantly surprised by Miro’s prompt reply and clear communication throughout the project, from consultation to finish.”

Our Process for Your Backyard Design
Phase 1: Consultation
Share your Vision
Tell us about your ideas for your backyard design, your preferences for style, and any unique features you would like to include. After reviewing your initial enquiry form, we will follow up with a phone call to learn more about creating your backyard oasis.
Tip: Use our landscaping cost calculator to easily build your project and monitor your budget. Add the features and material you envision, and seamlessly attach the details of your project to your enquiry form.
After our initial phone conversation, we will meet at your home and discuss your plans in person. We will assess your space and provide you with a quote for a conceptual design and structural design, depending on the complexities of your project.
Phase 2: Design
After you sign-off on your design agreement and make a deposit on your project, we will schedule a design consultation with you and our design team. We will refine design details for your project and return to your home to take site measurements. Next, we will research all zoning requirements and limitations in your area, before getting started on your initial draft. This stage generally takes 1-4 weeks to complete.
Presentation and Approvals
Before meeting with our team to review your initial draft, you will be sent your design to review and prepare feedback. We will present your draft and work with you to fine-tune your design. After implementing your feedback and finalizing the draft, we will create detailed landscape drawings. These drawings will include all labelling and material selections. Finalization generally takes 1 week to complete.
Phase 3: Construction
Permit Process and Drawings
Before we begin your backyard renovation, the final step in preparing your project is acquiring permit drawings. Permit drawings are completed by structural engineers to ensure building standards are met. This stage generally takes 3-5 weeks to complete.
