Before considering the ways a designer can help you, there is one important tip on choosing your designer… Go LOCAL…
Why is local important? Because it reduces travel time and response time in project planning and management. Meetings to discuss and review possibilities and concepts as well as project management and oversight are all easier when your dealing locally.
One of the real benefits of working with a professional landscape designer in the design development process is in having this person stick with you through the construction phase. Every project will have the potential to be improved upon as it is being built. Additionally, almost every project will have some “unknown” pop up during construction. Having your designer close at hand or as your project manager will ensure that you capitalize on opportunity and minimize any unforeseen pitfalls.
If you have a landscape project bubbling up in your imagination, think about contacting a member of our landscape design team to help you develop and refine your ideas into an actionable plan for you or a landscape contractor to build.
