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.

Getting started with the landscape designers with Hidden Creek Landscaping is quick and easy. Just complete the online Dream Builder form with your ideas. We’ll discuss your plans and get back in touch with you quickly.

You can also reach us by calling 614-777-4254 or get in touch via email.

Why Choose Hidden Creek as Your Custom Landscaping Company in Columbus, Ohio

About half of the country’s home and business owners regularly use the services of a professional landscape service provider. From adding a pool, deck, patio, or walkway, to installing a new landscape design and scheduling regular lawn maintenance, it pays to have a provider you can trust completely with your property.

You should know that Hidden Creek Landscaping is locally owned and has a 97.5 percent client retention rate. That means that when it comes to designing and maintaining lawns and other outdoor living areas in Central Ohio, we have the expertise and customer service you expect and deserve.

Why Should I Hire a Professional Landscaping Service?

When done right, there’s a lot more to landscaping than mowing the lawn and trimming hedges. Hidden Creek Landscaping was founded in 1998 by two men who were studying Landscape Architecture at The Ohio State University. It’s that love of and fascination for landscaping that shaped our business and positioned Hidden Creek Landscaping to develop and nurture the landscapes of property owners in Central Ohio.

Because each person’s lawn is as different as their own personalities, we pride ourselves on offering custom solutions for unique landscaping challenges. While you most likely have your own reasons for wanting to hire a professional landscaping service, here are some of the most common reasons our customers have given us.

  • We can save you time. Whether you need an entirely new landscape design, are thinking about a water or fire feature, or simply want to make sure your lawn gets the care and attention it needs, time is among the most obvious benefits of hiring a professional landscaping service. We have the knowledge and the resources at our fingertips to give your lawn all it needs to not only grow — but to thrive.
  • We have the expertise to help you make the right decisions about plants, trees, and grass. We’re very familiar with what types of grass and native plants do best in Central Ohio, and those that do not. For example, not every grass variety will be able to withstand the harshness of Ohio winters. We know which ones work best, and how to keep yours looking its best year ‘round.
  • We can show you how your yard will look before the work is done. With our 3-D technologies, we’ll illustrate what your landscape design will look like with a virtual flyover simulation. With this ability, we’re able to anticipate potential obstacles on the fly and find creative ways to work around them long before any dirt is tilled.
  • We help you stay on budget. If you choose to go the “do it yourself” route, expenses can quickly get out of control. By leveraging our expertise, we’re able to quote you a price and our professional team members will do all they can to make sure you don’t pay a cent more.

How Do I Get Started With Hidden Creek Landscaping?

All of our projects, quotes, and consultations begin with the Dream Builder form, which you can complete and submit online.

There, you’ll be able to:

  • Describe what type of project you have in mind
  • Tell us the purpose of the project (more family entertaining space, regular lawn maintenance, landscape design, etc.) so that we can get a better understanding of the size and complexity of the job
  • Tell us your timetable for having the work done
  • Outline a budget
  • What types of materials you want us to use or avoid

We’ll even work from plans that have been drawn up by another company.

Once you submit the form, our team of landscape architects and designers will discuss your project and reach out to you about plans for implementing your ideas.

How Do I Select the Right Landscape Provider for My Lawn?

It’s well worth your effort to ask the right questions when making your selection for a landscaping provider.

Your first step should be to select a few candidates based upon recommendations from friends and neighbors. Then, take the time to ask them the following questions.

  1. Are you bonded and insured? This is vital to make sure you’re protected legally if there’s a mishap on your property. Hidden Creek Landscaping is insured and bonded.
  2. Will you guarantee your work? You need a professional landscape provider that will stand behind their work, as we do here at Hidden Creek.
  3. How long have you provided professional landscaping services? This is important because you need someone who has established and demonstrated a reputation for doing things the right way. Hidden Creek Landscaping has served the Central Ohio region for more than 20 years. During that time, we’ve become the landscape providers of choice in our area.
  4. Is your team professionally trained? You should want a provider who is constantly at the forefront of landscape technologies and approaches. Here at Hidden Creek Landscaping, our team members are continually being trained in the absolute latest in landscape know-how and equipment.
