With the warmer weather just around the corner, it’s time to start planning for your new Melbourne patio now!
Okay, we know what you’re probably thinking. The weather has just turned cold and it’s four months or more before we’ll start to see warmer weather in Melbourne. Some of you may even be thinking we’ve lost the plot? So, before you send around people with straightjackets, let’s explain.
As we’ve highlighted in our blogs before, Outside Concepts can generally design and build new patios pretty quickly. Most structures are built in less than a week and some smaller ones can be completed in a day or two. A very large project might take a couple of weeks or more, but as you can see the process can be very quick.
The issue is that most Melbourne patio projects are not just about agreeing on a design and then moving ahead with the build. There is usually the dreaded local planning to get through and this isn’t just a hassle for most people, it can also add significant time to the project.
How much time? Of course it will depend on your local council area. In some cases it might be as little as a few weeks, but in others it might take a few months. If you’re in one of those council areas where the process is a little slow, it can easily take four to six months to build your Melbourne patio from the time you start planning.
Thus, if you do want a patio for your Melbourne home for spring, now is the time to take action.
