Determine What Kind of Landscape Design You Want
The first thing you need to do before researching landscape designers is to determine what you want out of your outdoor area. This can be done by thinking about what your ideal space will be used for, some helpful questions or considerations are:
- What will you spend the most time doing? Swimming, lounging, gardening, cooking?
- Are there existing structures to incorporate into your new design?
- Do you want natural stone paths or water features, like a waterfall or pond?
- Is it your dream to grow your own fruits and vegetables?
- Will your kids or pets be in the area?
- Does your municipality have any restrictions on backyard usage?
After you’ve thought it through and made your decision, bring your dream to life – sort of! Begin by sketching out a design of what you envision for your landscape – it’s also helpful to collect images or plans of landscapes you’re looking to add to your space. It is much easier for you and your landscape team to fulfill all your desires once exactly what you want as well understood!
