Tips for Choosing Landscape Designers
Landscape designers are artists that can come up with a concept of how a lawn or yard should look, then apply that knowledge to create a beautifully landscaped space. They may be architects or landscape professionals, but whatever their background, they are often trained in aesthetically pleasing landscaping techniques which involve the strategic placement of grass, mulch, gardens, lighting and water features. Whether your project involves a residential area, parks, golf course or shopping center, enlist the help of landscape designers. Here are some tips to keep in mind when searching for the right landscape designer for you:

Tip #1: Know what you want
Know exactly what you want to incorporate into your yard before calling a landscape designer. Do you want walkways, elaborate gardens, patios and water features? Or do you want something more simple and streamlined, with perfectly manicured grass and mulch areas? Come up with a budget and write it down. This will help you stick to it later when the designer is discussing possible plans.

Tip #2: Come up with a list of possible candidates
Create a list of a few companies in your community that you think may be a good match. You can do this simply by looking online or you can check out your neighbor’s lawn and ask which company they enlisted. You may decide to call just one or two companies to get a formal bid or quote request.

Tip #3: Get down to researching
This is the hard part, but you can’t scrimp on this portion. Ask about education and experience, along with affiliations and licensing. If the use of green products and practices is important to you in your project, inquire if the company takes an environmentally friendly approach to landscape design. Ask if the job will be done by just one professional or a team of professionals who all work together to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Working with a professional landscape designer can offer home owners and property owners many benefits. They can help improve the look of a home, designing gardens that compliment the architecture of the house. If you are interested in finding an experienced designer to work with, try interviewing them first. The following questions may help you determine the best match for you.

  • Do you have a background in architecture?
    Not all landscape designers have architectural training. If you are installing a complex garden, with several tiers of planted flowers, fountains, and trellises, you may want to work with someone trained in the aesthetics. Simpler yard designs can be constructed by an experienced gardener.

  • What type of plants do you normally work with?
    Every designer has a branch that he or she specializes in. If you are looking to put up a tropical garden, you will want to work with someone who can help set up suitable soil and judge successful climate conditions. If you want a naturescape, you should choose to work with a professional that is familiar with the local flowers, trees, and plant life.

  • Do you offer any environmentally friendly options?
    With an increasing trend towards environmentally friendly architecture, many landscape designers are also incorporating this trend into their own work. Adjustments like where the flowerbeds are placed in the yard, or choosing plants that are native to the area, can help save in water usage. Other adjustments, like the type of soil, planting to maximize light exposure, and reducing pesticides, are all ways that these businesses can incorporate sustainable landscaping.
