How to Get The Landscape Design Of Your Dreams

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 7 February , 2018

Just as pictures and other artifacts tell the stories of who you and your family are, so should your home or business landscaping. Whether you’d like a space designed specifically for relaxation, entertainment, wildlife or just for beauty, working with a skilled landscape designer is your best bet for getting the results you desire.

In this issue, we’ll talk about the typical steps undertaken together by both a designer and client to achieve the most wanted results.

Keep in mind that when working together with a skilled landscape designer, the process will most likely be a much easier and enjoyable one.

  • Getting a clear understanding of your wants and needs.

During the initial consultation, you and your designer will go over the wishes and goals you have in mind for your landscaping. It’s crucial that you have a clear understanding of how you want to use that particular portion of your yard.

For example, it would make no sense to install an outdoor kitchen or outdoor TV if you have no plans for that kind of outdoor entertainment. Likewise, if there are elements already in your landscape that you’d like to keep, list them so that they can be incorporated by your designer.

  • Be realistic and upfront about your budget.

For most people, there is a maximum on how much they’re willing or able to spend on outdoor landscaping. Don’t be shy about telling your designer what your budget is. You’d be surprised at how creative many landscape designers can be while making less actually look like a lot more.

  • How much maintenance are you game for?

Very few landscape designs are truly maintenance-free, so as you’re thinking about what features and plants to install, think also about what will be needed to maintain them.

  • Rough drawings and measurements.

In the first effort to bring your wishes and goals to life, the designer will visit your property to take accurate measurements. This part is crucial so that things like property boundaries and existing structures are accounted for, and an accurate plan-of-action can be put into place.

  • Installation.

This is where the magic happens. Rest assured, though, that through this process, a project supervisor or foreman will be on-site to resolve any questions and obstacles, and ensure that the job is done to your specifications.

I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    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
