Working with a Professional Landscape Designer

The landscape designer works closely with each client to create a personal and customized design that is best suited to their home, lifestyle and unique set of wants and needs. He or she provides guidance, an artistic touch, and a comprehensive plan of action, while keeping your best interests at heart.

A professional landscape designer:

  • analyzes the property from an architectural, environmental, horticultural and artistic viewpoint and uses these findings to create a Master Plan that is customized for the site.
  • develops site-specific solutions to the problems and opportunities of the site using education, experience, imagination, talent and creativity.
  • provides an artistic eye and gives the outdoor space a form and a sense of style that will be the heart of the design.
  • helps choose the most appropriate design elements, materials, and plants for the site.
  • works within a budget, and provides advice on how the landscape plan might be installed in stages if needed.
  • helps avoid costly mistakes by providing a clear direction in which to proceed.
  • brings a network of industry professionals to help insure the immediate and ongoing success of the project.
