Homeowners may have a vision for their yard – an enchanting garden, relaxing get-away, or a place to entertain guests, but completing the project seems overwhelming. That’s why many homeowners choose to use a landscape designer. Their expertise and knowledge is invaluable in helping clients choose the right plants, fix problem areas, determine which materials and features will produce the desired look and feel a client wants, and help them stay within budget.
However, before choosing a landscape designer, homeowners will want to give careful thought how they want to use the area. Steven Luna, owner of Solage Landscape Exteriors, suggests homeowners take the following steps:
1 - The first step is to identify what purposes the landscape must achieve. For example, will the yard be used primarily for entertainment purposes, a play area for children and/or pets, aesthetic pleasure, or gardening?
2. Next, decide the style and theme. Homeowners should ask themselves if they prefer a formal or casual look; materials such as stone or brick; open or enclosed spaces; an English garden or a bold, modern look.
3. Consider the budget and time frame. A good landscape designer will work closely with their clients, listening to their needs and wants and work within a client’s budget to help them see their dreams come true.
4. Think about what features are desired. Many options are available including a pool, spa, patio, outdoor kitchen and/or fireplace, pond, water features, and/or outdoor lighting. Consider which features are the most important and will fit into the budget.
5. Finally, choose a landscape designer. One of the best ways to select one is through recommendations from former clients. Ask for referrals. Be sure the company is licensed and fully insured.
