Landscaping plays an important part in a home’s value and aesthetic appeal. Creating a landscape design is a multistep process, and it typically begins with the designer posing a few questions about how you will use your outdoor space. Any specific needs in terms of amenities or layout in addition to practical concerns, such as drainage issues on the property, will influence the design. After the designer determines what you want the space to look like and how you need it to function, he or she will draw up landscaping plans that will combine beauty and practicality.
Hardscape ideas can also be incorporated into the design. Walkways, benches, and functional and artistic retaining walls can all help define and decorate the space. If you’d like to include a special area such as a vegetable or flower garden, the landscape designer will be able to recommend the best location for such a feature as well as plants that will thrive.
