Things to Consider While Designing your Landscape

Is it time to re-design your home or business landscape? One of our most popular services we offer is landscape design. We can help share few points on how to prepare your first meeting with our designer.

Interaction with a Landscape Designer

First and foremost, part of starting a new project is to gather information of what you want. What you like and dislike? Have you had some ideas on something you saw recently that inspire you toward this decision? What are you going to expect as an outcome from this project?

Do you know your yard enough? We do believe that you know your property better than anyone else. Are there any peculiarities you may have notice? Like for example; the way water drains in your lawn after a heavy rain or storm, does it puddle? If so, probably we can do something about it.

Purpose of your outdoor space:  Do you want to have a quality time with family and create fun memories? Do you want to host backyard parties on special occasions? Do you want your kids to enjoy being outdoor and play? Would your space be a place for relaxing after a long day at work? We can help transform it for you.

Setting up the spot you want to showcase: Plant position, hardscaping, lights, water features and well design landscape can be the main focus to create a best spot of your outdoor space. We can help placing the right feature at the right place.

Future holds: Are you looking for long-term maintenance? Discussing what you are willing to commit on maintenance will help your landscape design with more option on their proposal.

Concrete or asphalt or pavers

What are the choices of materials? Which surface will be right for your property? How does pavers stack up against concrete and asphalt?

Choosing the right choice for your outdoor space with the right material is a challenge

Concrete: once installed you could last up to 15-20 years of life expectancy. A minimum to moderate maintenance such as cleaning or stain removal. However, cracking can be a difficult to repair situation. Concrete performs much better in mild to hot climate than in colder environments.

Asphalt: If installed properly, you could expect to last up to 20-30 years. Yearly maintenance should be done for re-sealing every 3 to 5 years. Simple to no design required with asphalt installation.

Pavers: Must install by certified professional as it involves grading and leveling technique. Once professionally installed you could be looking at 25-30 years of life expectancy. Easy to maintain, if there is a stain or cracked single piece replacement is in-expensive versus tearing down the whole area. The best part about it is availability of option in various design, shapes, colour of your choice.
