A landscape designer conceptualizes outdoor spaces and considers a client's vision. They use these two thought processes to plan and execute a landscaping project. If you have space on your property that you would like to improve, learn how a landscape designer will assist you.

Your Vision

The first thing that you should focus on is what you would like to utilize your property for. If you would like to make your patio more functional for outdoor gatherings, for instance, outline the types of features that you believe would improve the space.

Create a list of hardscape features and landscape features that you would like to add to your land. If you are not familiar with many plant varieties and hardscape materials, concentrate on what types of improvements you would like a general range of products to provide. 

Your vision will be discussed during your initial consultation with a landscape designer. Because you will want your designer to have a full understanding of your preferences, print out photos that depict some landscaping designs that appeal to you.

You can find many pictures online that pertain to the type of landscaping project that you have in mind. These pictures, plus the list that you have created, will give your landscape designer a better understanding of the upcoming project.

An Inspection

The designer will need to inspect your property. The inspection will show the designer how much room they have to work with. They will also be able to assess the current landscape features on your land that may complement the hardscaping and landscaping materials that will be installed when the project is underway.

The condition of the soil on your property, the amount of sunlight that your property receives, and the region in which you reside will determine which types of vegetation will be best suited for your property.

The Modifications

Your designer may recommend that some modifications are made to your property. If drainage issues are a concern, an underground drainage system may need to be installed within the area where new vegetation will be planted.

If a particular plant species that you like is not noted for growing well in the region where you reside, your designer may suggest that you choose an alternate variety that has similar properties. You and your designer will discuss every aspect of the project. Once you are both in agreement, your designer will begin preparing a schedule to begin the landscaping project.
