The first step in designing your dream landscape is to assess several things: the characteristics of your property (big, small, hilly, or flat), your top, must-have priorities, and your budget. The vision of your dream yard should include all of your needs and wants. Go for it, dream big when visualizing and do not be afraid to hold anything back. Walking your property with you helps us to learn your heart’s desire for your space. Once we know your vision, we can determine what features and plantings might stay or which might go. It’s great when we can utilize what is happily growing in your yard. Sometimes what seems to be sticking out like a sore thumb to homeowners can be softened, enhanced or made invisible by strategic plantings.
Our goal is to bring as much of your vision to life, satisfy your current needs, and give you a long-term landscaping plan that will allow for evolving landscape elements and plans. We help realize your wishes while also addressing the practicalities, such as sun exposure, watering systems, plants you want to retain, and your budget. With creative planning and a realistic budget, we can work to turn your vision into a reality. When visualizing your landscape keep in mind your family, how you live, your pets, how long you plan to live in the home, and adding major improvements. All of these elements play roles in your landscaping.
Your lifestyle and how you use your yard are important considerations. Will there be a lot of activity taking place such as family football games, outdoor entertaining, and a dedicated space for special gardens or garden chores? What will be the main activities taking place in your yard? Knowing this will help us in the planning and designing.
Do you love an open landscape or do you prefer something more private and secluded? Trees, shrubs, and fencing all address privacy concerns and finding the right mix will give you the atmosphere you desire.
