Do you need a permit to build a patio in San Diego?

When beginning a patio design and build in San Diego, you want to be sure and respect any regulations by the city, state, or your local HOA (HOA does not apply to all properties) This includes applying for and receiving proper permits for any work that requires you to do so. As project managers and designers for landscape design of all different sizes, we feel it is our responsibility to inform our customers of any requirements and regulations, to the best of our knowledge, as well as lead them through the permitting process. These regulations and permit requirements mean that you need to hire an experienced patio design and construction company who knows local regulations and permitting process.

The San Diego landscape plan regulations and permits information website page here – – can be daunting to review alone, so we recommend speaking with a project manager like the helpful ones we have here at Designs 4 You Remodeling.

Additional things to think about when redesigning or building a new patio at your home:

  • Any HOA or other organizations that may have a say in your property or neighborhood aesthetics
  • Know your budget – you’ll want to have a rough idea of your budget and costs
  • Hire an experienced local company – franchises and national companies don’t always have the best prices or local knowledge that can be helpful in saving money and time
  • Make sure the company you hire to do your patio design and construction is both licensed and insured
