If you’ve got ideas for changing the landscape of your home or business, the autumn months are a perfect time to get the work done. A common misconception, though, is that any property owner can handle landscape design. After all, what’s the worst that can happen?
The short answer to that question is “a lot.” By taking on the job yourself or entrusting it to a few well-meaning but unqualified friends, you’re risking long-lasting damage to your property and expensive second attempts to correct the first mistakes.
In this issue, the San Diego landscape experts with Juniper Landscape Company will share tips for why relying on the skills and expertise of qualified designers is the smart way to go.
There’s a lot more to it than simply sketching a few ideas on a napkin. Designers like the ones here at Juniper will take the dimensions of your property into account, and work out the ideas either as a 3D visual or hand-drawn illustration. Regardless of the size of the project, you’ll know exactly what the project will look like before ground is broken.
The 3D visuals are especially effective since they allow you to see the design from all angles.
Many people just pick the first name that pops up in a Google search, but it’s wise to take a bit more time with your selection.
First, though, it’s a good idea to gather your initial thoughts on the project, including walk areas, water features, gardens, etc. You may even want to clip out a few photos from landscapes in magazines that catch your eye.
When you’re ready to proceed, contact several San Diego landscape designers, and invite them to submit bids and ideas. Be sure to take things like certification, licensure, and bonding when making your final decision.
We’ll work with you to help create a budget, establish the timeline for your project and guide you through the entire process.
