Why hire a landscape designer?


“Why should we hire a landscape designer?”

“Why should we get a professional landscape design done when we could just get some plants and put them in by ourselves? Does hiring a landscape designer for our home really make that much of a difference?”

We frankly, landscaping is a bit more than just digging a hole and sticking plants into the ground.

All too often, we get called in for an on-site assessment when a home or business owner discovers that the plants and landscaping in and around their property is failing.

The previous property owners might have just poked plants any old where: too close together, too close to neighboring fences, near water pipes, sewer lines, foundations and/or power lines.

Now the plant’s branches or root systems are causing major havoc and could cost them hundreds (or thousands) of dollars to repair the damage and replace the plantings.

Or for example, take the home owner who has wasted hundreds of bucks buying unsuitable plants that looked great in a catalog or at the garden center but due to their location, micro-climate or terrain of their property, but die too quickly or becomes a overgrowth nuisance.

And finally, what about the well-meaning property owner who has some ‘grading work’ that eventually causes a minor mudslide that blocks a public road or worst yet, damages someone else’s property?

Think it can’t happen to you? Think again…

…Too often home owners mistakenly believe that they can easily create a beautiful yard and garden on their own — without having to “resort” to calling a professional landscaping and design service to help.

But some properties, especially those with uneven or slippery slopes do require professional know-how and industrial-grade equipment to safely reshape the land without causing soil erosion and collapses.

A landscape design from an experienced professional can transform your home’s appearance by installing stunning planting beds and creating a relaxing and comfortable outdoor living space for you.

And no matter how big or small your property, having an expert landscaper to advise you and help you is the fastest and simplest way to increase the comfort and value of your home.
