Why Should I Hire a Landscape Designer?
Even the most ambitious do-it-yourselfer should consider the many benefits of leveraging the skills and expertise of a professional landscape designer.
- You can stand out from the crowd with a custom design.
Here at Hidden Creek Landscaping, we understand your property is just as unique as you. That’s why we love the opportunities to design and create landscapes that are one-of-a-kind.
Because of our training and experience, we’ve got lots of ideas about what will work and what won’t. We’ll listen to your ideas, and develop and implement a design as close to what you have in mind as possible. If we see ways that your original idea can be improved, we’ll share our thoughts with you and tweak the plan as needed.
- A landscape designer can save you time and money.
One of the biggest advantages of working with a professional landscape designer is that you’re able to clearly understand the big picture. We know the costs of materials, and will be able to help you stay within your budget. This way, you’re in a much better position to decide whether you want to do the entire project at once or phase it in gradually.
Because of their experience, landscape designers are in a better position to anticipate potential obstacles. With their help and guidance, you’ll be able to work around any potential trouble spots with more ease and effectiveness. Based on our experience, we realize that just about every project has the possibility of being improved while being built.
- You’ll be able to see how your project will look before work is started.
As part of our project analysis, we’ll put together a conceptual design using our 3-D technologies. In essence, this gives you and us a bird’s eye view of your project. We can then adjust your plan on the fly long before any physical work is done. This step essentially sets the stage for the work to begin.
- You’re able to see how your entire landscape is impacted by your project.
Whether you realize it or not, your property is its own ecosystem. Each change you make to it has an impact. Your professional landscape designer will have the knowledge and understanding to look at your project and analyze its effect — even down to the microscopic level.
- Your project is manageable.
It’s tempting and easy to get focused on one idea and just run with it. What happens, though, if what you had in mind simply isn’t feasible? Your landscape designer will be able to guide you towards the most effective ways to turn your ideas into a reality.
Additionally, your landscape designer will help implement a plan that is as easy to maintain as possible long after the implementation part is done.
- Working with contractors is easier.
If your project requires a work crew, the chances are good that your landscape designer has established relationships with licensed contractors in your area. It’s also good for your landscape designer to serve as a liaison of sorts with the installation crew.
How Much Input Will I Have?
We know there are some landscape designers who prefer to use a certain style with which they’re comfortable. Here at Hidden Creek Landscaping, though, our sole focus is to bring your own personal ideas and design to life. We’re collaborators with you in every sense of the term.
While we may share examples of our previous work to complement your plan as needed, your vision is what we use to guide us. Our input is strictly to either enhance your existing ideas or draw your attention to any potential problems that we anticipate.
During our consultation, we’ll ask how you want the space to be used; your preferences on plants and materials; and other environmental factors.
We then take all that information and develop a plan of action that is based upon your initial ideas.
