Lee’s Summit is made up of everything from intimate urban settings, to open and sprawling estates. This eclectic mix provides a variety of settings for various landscaping styles. A common request for homes in Lee’s Summit is to incorporate European influences and design elements into the project. Though recently with all of the new construction and renovations, there has been an increase in the requests for modern, contemporary, and even rustic gardens.


Think About Permitting & Codes

One of the most important things to think about when you’re considering adding outdoor living space to your Lee’s Summit home is how you’ll need to handle permitting and code adherence, in areas where it’s needed. This will include getting any necessary permits required by the city and making sure that all construction or renovation is done in compliance with zoning regulations. 

Failing to stick to codes and get needed permits can lead to significant fines from the city, and in some extreme cases, removal of the entire structure. Before you begin any project, it’s critical to research and considers specific permits that will be needed based on the scope of the work to be done. When you work with a professional like High Prairie Outdoors, we’ll handle all of that for you, so you can focus on designing the outdoor living space of your dreams. 


Consider Your Project Scope

Most towns will require permits for large carpentry projects, landscaping, patios, construction, roofing, pergolas attached to the home, pools, and potential limitations on hardscaping. The scope of your outdoor living space project can have the biggest influence on whether you’ll need permits or not. 

Additionally, the scope of your project may also determine involvement from local officials. Larger projects or projects projected to have a significant impact on the surrounding area or community may face requirements for more detailed plans.


Working With A Professional Can Make All The Difference

A major factor in the ease and success of your project will be the help that you use to plan it, estimate it, and undertake the construction.
