4 Reasons Why it Makes Sense to Hire a Landscape Designer

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 27 June , 2018

One of the most popular acronyms to embed itself in our society over the last decade or so is DIY (Do It Yourself). While there is any number of things many of us can do with the help of an instructional YouTube video, designing a new landscape for your lawn can easily be one of those projects best left to a professional.

In this issue, we’ll share compelling reasons why landscape design is not always a good idea for the DIY-er.

What is a landscape designer?

Often referred to as a landscape architect, a landscape designer has extensive educational and professional knowledge about creating attractive and functional outdoor areas for a host of clientele, including home and business owners, schools, medical facilities and other organizations.

Why should I hire a landscape designer?

There is a host of reasons for trusting and relying upon the expertise of a skilled landscape designer.

  1. Adding value to your investment.
    The skills of a landscape designer can easily add real value to your property. How much value? Because outdoor living is a vital part of the American homeowner experience, it’s common for landscape designers to add as much as 15 percent to a homeowner’s property over comparable homes.
  2. Landscape designers are equipped to anticipate and overcome obstacles.
    It’s likely that as soon as your initial consultation begins, the landscape designer is already assessing your property and its possibilities. That knowledge, coupled with your ideas, will be used to put together an individualized plan of action for the design and installation of your new landscape.
  3. Saving money through smart budgeting.
    Most landscape designers have professional contacts with vendors throughout their industry. In many instances, this translates to discounts and big savings to your final bill. Also, most landscape designers will work with you in terms of the timetable, allowing the project to be done in phases if you prefer.
  4. Guided expertise throughout the entire process.
    Leveraging the expertise of a skilled landscape designer will result in you having an expert by your side throughout the entire process of your project. Any unforeseen problems that pop-up are often best handled by a professional.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
