Why Do I Need a Landscape Designer?

Designing a landscape is typically a job best left to the experts. There are several factors at play. An experienced landscape designer is well-equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to manage projects successfully. Once your landscape designer understands your goals, they will design a custom landscape plan that meets your goals and transforms your dreams and desires into reality.

Here are some benefits of hiring a landscaping company in Sonoma County to design your landscape.

Idea Generation

In many cases, homeowners know what they want but not how to make things fall into place. An experienced and skilled landscape designer can make suggestions based on your goals (think wish list) to help you figure out exactly what you want created.

A design/build company will come up with a plan and put it into action. An experienced landscape designer can also incorporate an idea you may have, spin it, and present improved or modified versions based on your budget. The build portion will then implement the design on your property.

Seamless Project Management

Managing a landscaping project from the design stage to a completed project is not easy and may involve at least five phases with many items specific to the design in each phase. Anyone who says that managing a multi-phase landscaping project is easy is either not completely honest or does not know everything about landscaping. If you try to do everything yourself, you will have your plate full and won’t be able to make time for other things that matter until the project is completed. Most landscape projects are measured in days and weeks not hours.

When you hire a professional landscape designer, you will have complete peace of mind knowing that the professional will support you every step of the way.

In addition to designing your landscape plan, your landscape designer will coordinate with the company’s field crew and act as a liaison. This way, the entire design/build company can deal with unforeseen complications that arise during the build phase.

Experience and Technical Knowledge

The best landscape design will highlight important points, create & link spaces, and promote water movement away from your home, towards appropriate areas. An experienced landscape designer will conduct thorough research and leverage their expertise and experience to determine the best-suited landscape design for your home’s ecosystem.

Every yard is unique. If not selected and located correctly, plants, shrubs, and trees that may enhance the curb appeal of your neighbor’s property can fail to make a splash in your yard.

An experienced landscape designer knows that one size does not fit all. They will help you choose the best plants, trees, and shrubs for your yard.

The design professional will explain the difference between native and non-native plants and will educate you on invasive plant species that can impact the local environment.

The professional designer will help you choose creative options allowing for informed decisions when it comes to selecting plants as well as other material for your yard.
