About Landscape Designers
A landscape designer is a professional that works to create a beautiful garden that makes the best possible use of the land that you have. They create and draw plans that show the layout of the garden, including where entertaining areas will be, where retaining walls and garden beds are located, where the grassed areas are, where water features are and so on. The plans will detail all of the plants and trees to be used in the creation of the landscape and also detail all the materials that are needed to make the design a reality (stones, decking, pavers, soil, timber, and so on). Landscape designers will ensure that your garden has the correct drainage and implement new drainage strategies as required. Landscape designers can also help you navigate the council red tape.
What to Look for in a Landscape Designer
When you are looking for a landscape designer, there are several things that you need to look for. The first is experience. Good landscape designers have been working for several years and will have the knowledge needed to know what plants will thrive in your climate, as well as in putting together designs that suit the client. Using an experienced landscape designer will mean that your brand-new garden is more likely to succeed. The second thing that you need to look for is a designer that listens to you and works to create something beautiful that is within your needs. When they are designing your landscape, you want a designer that is going to show you what the finished product will look like, where various elements in your garden are going to be placed, and most importantly, what it all costs. You want to feel comfortable with your landscape designer so you can communicate what you like and, more importantly, what you don’t like!
Of course, good landscape designers will have portfolios of their previous work that they can show you, as well as references from happy clients. Ask to see ours!
