Title: 3 Steps to Choosing a Landscape Design that's Right For You


1
3 Steps to Choosing a Landscape Design that's
Right For You
2
  • When youre looking to give your yard a makeover,
    choosing a landscape design can turn out to be
    overwhelming. Here are few tips you can use as a
    guide for your remodeling project.

3
Find Various Choices
  • Youll find various choices from style, to
    colors, and materials to be used and its easy to
    feel confused even before getting started.  
  • While working with a landscape designer or a
    design-build firm will help make the process
    easier for you, it also pays to understand more
    about landscape design.

4
Look Into Various Landscape Design Inspirations
  • If you want to use open space as an important
    design element and prefer little decoration, then
    a modern design may be right for you.
  • On the other hand, if you want greenery and focal
    points such as water features and statues, and
    still make use of the great open space, then an
    Oriental landscape design may appeal to you.
  • If you prefer bright colors, meanwhile, then you
    can explore around for Mediterranean landscape
    designs.

5
Consider Required Upkeep
  • Every landscape design requires maintenance to
    keep them in good condition. Its not enough that
    youve carefully thought which style to go for.
  • Its as well necessary to learn about the type of
    care the landscape design requires. For instance,
    a formal garden setting will be more challenging
    to maintain as you need to keep everything in
    symmetrical order.
  • A garden pond is a refreshing addition to your
    landscape, but may not work for you if you dread
    the extra work required taking care of plants,
    fish, and water quality.
  • It goes the same for when youre choosing plants
    to grow in your garden. You might prefer those
    that grow fast but at the same time, you need to
    be prepared to prune more often.

6
Finally, Do Open Up About Your Budget
  • Sharing about the amount youd be able spend for
    the project is beneficial for you and your
    contractor.
  • As a client, its only natural to feel cautious
    talking about your budget. However, when youre
    more open to discussing this, youre also helping
    your designer come up with a  cost-effective plan
    that achieves the style you want.
  • This means less revisions and more important,
    saving time. Theres no use to being provided
    impressive designs that go beyond what you can
    afford, construction costs included. You can
    always take advantage of free estimate offers by
    design-build teams.
  • But in this case, be sure to inquire in which
    areas the cost is likely to change as the project
    progresses so youd know what to expect.

Check These Out !
  • As you consult one contractor to another, youd
    more or less gain ideas how a project cost is
    broken down.
  • Youre then better equipped to decide which team
    to work with, and which landscape design to
    choose.

    choosing a landscape design thats right for you.
