Landscape Design InfoDesign Process

Hiring a professional landscape architect can be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make for your property.

Architects are dedicated to solving your landscape problems, with the latest products and technology, all the while creating cost effective solutions.

The primary function of the landscape architect is to provide, you, the client with alternative landscape choices. This is usually done by a drawing, perspective (bird’s-eye view) or 3D. However, designing your landscape is also a creative process.

A good landscape architect will not only evaluate your property, but encourage, inspire and listen to you.

Be realistic about your budget. Give your architect as much information at possible and share your ideas. The better you and your landscape architect communicate the more successful the project. It’s your dream.

Hiring a landscape architect can add considerable value to your home. Professional landscaping has a recovery value of 100% – 200% on the re-sale of your home.

We believe in carefully planned designs that take the season, sunlight, wind, soil, slope and architechture into consideration.

There are some pertinent factors to consider when embarking on this process. The usability and functionality of landscape elements in relation to residence, curb appeal, sustainability and long-term maintenance and equity (resale value).

As you choose an architect for your next landscape project, we hope you will give us the opportunity to discuss the solutions we may have for you.
