4 Things to Think About When Planning Your Landscape Design

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 29 January , 2020

One of our most popular services in landscape design. If it’s time to upgrade your home or business landscape, then it’s time for a redesign.

The design itself serves as a guide to the finished product of your landscaping.

Here at Juniper Landscape Company, our designers use CAD software to produce highly detailed designs. We can provide the design images in 2D or 3D formats. Our 3D designs deliver the biggest “wow factor” by essentially letting you do a test-drive of the design before it’s implemented.  

In this issue, we’ll share a few pointers on how to prepare for your first meeting with our designers.

Points to Consider Before Meeting With Your Landscape Designer

The initial part of any landscaping project we do is gathering ideas from you, the client. Because that first discussion is crucial to getting the ball rolling in the right direction, getting in the right frame of mind beforehand makes everyone’s job easier.

Before your first meeting with your landscape designer, make sure you think about these points.

  • Know your yard. You know your property better than anyone, so take a few minutes to jot down any peculiarities you may notice. For example, pay attention to the way water drains from your landscape after a storm. Does it puddle? If so, we can probably do something about that.
  • Think about the purpose of your yard. Do you want to use it to host parties? Do you have plans to transform it into a child’s outdoor playroom paradise? Would you like your lawn to set the stage for a nice, relaxing time at home after a hard day at work?
    We can do all that and more. The key, though, is to have a clear understanding of how you want to use your landscaping.  
  • Identify the spots you want to showcase. Through a combination of plant placement, hardscaping, lighting, and design, we can highlight specific areas of your landscaping. Likewise, if there are a few places you want to keep from view, we can provide techniques to divert attention from them.
  • Think about what the future holds. Make sure you have a good understanding of the life cycles and growth rates of all plants and trees added to your landscaping, as well as the ones already there. Also, think about long term maintenance of any hardscaping that’s installed.

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive.

    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
