How A Landscape Designer Can Take Your Yard To the Next Level

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 14 September , 2022

Many people have a “green thumb,” a phrase that means that they understand what it takes to grow beautiful plants.  While some people seem to just be lucky in their landscape efforts, in many cases there is a lot of hard behind-the-scenes work that others never see.  Planning, growing, and maintaining a beautiful yard is not easy, and many people, gazing at a neighbor’s lovely outdoor spaces with envy, never realize how much it took to get the yard to that condition.

Quite often, a landscape designer was involved at some point in the process.  While it is possible for a homeowner to design and build his or her own beautiful outdoor oasis, many people simply lack the skills and knowledge necessary to give the yard those finishing touches that take it from good enough to spectacular.

How Can A Landscape Designer Help Me Make My Yard Beautiful?

A landscape designer is a professional who understands not only the facts about outdoor maintenance but also the nuances of what makes a landscape plan work.  A good landscape designer can help you with numerous tasks surrounding your outdoor areas, including:

  • Designing beds and planting areas of the right size, shape, and composition. Some people are surprised to learn that the size and shape of a planting bed is important in keeping plants healthy.  Along with size and shape, the composition of the soil and the amount of water the bed receives, as well as sunlight and shade, can all have an impact on whether that particular bed thrives or languishes. 
  • Solving irrigation issues. Irrigation is probably the single most important factor in whether plants grow successfully, so it is no surprise to learn that poorly irrigated or drained outdoor spaces do not look their best.  A good landscape designer not only helps you balance your water needs but also finds ways to do so in an efficient and environmentally-friendly way.
  • Incorporating hardscape. A landscape designer is not just knowledgeable about plants.  A professional landscape designer also understands non-organic components of your yard, such as walkways, fountains, fire features, walls, and patios.  Adding these hardscape elements to your yard takes it from green and lush to relaxing and inviting.

A good landscape designer can help you make hundreds of small decisions that will have a significant impact on the health and beauty of your yard for years to come.  With the help of a professional who understands outdoor design, you will be amazed at how much better your yard looks and how much easier it is to maintain!

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