One of the best investments a homeowner can make is to put added focus on curb appeal. Your home’s exterior and surrounding landscaping gives visitors and prospective buyers their first impression of your property. Since curb appeal can greatly influence market value, it is a good reason why you should consider hiring a professional landscape designer.
A good landscape designer will start by taking inventory of your existing landscape and its current condition to determine which plants and shrubs are currently thriving and which ones need to be removed.
Once your yard is evaluated in its current state, the landscape designer will present you with a detailed vision of the new landscape design via architectural drawings, elevation drawings, renderings, and/or photo enhancements. This will allow you to get a better idea of what the proposed plants, trees, and shrubs will look like before they are installed.
For best results, you will want to view your landscape designer as a partner and communicate thoroughly throughout the process. This will help you to receive a design for your property that fits both your needs and budget.
