Things to Consider Prior to Your Design Consultation
Start From the Ground Up
Decide whether you would prefer decorative stone, hardwood mulch, or colored mulch as the ground cover media.
Selecting Plant Material
Research plants that you would like to have incorporated into your design. The same goes for knowing which plants you find undesirable. Use the Plant Finder tool or other brand websites for your search.
Familiarize yourself with hardscaping materials and styles. Unilock and Techo-Bloc have beautiful examples to inspire you for your own project. You can even look at finished projects in your surrounding neighborhoods to help determine your own ideas, wants and needs.
Why 3D Landscape Design Trumps Traditional Drawings
Traditional drawings of landscape designs in the past typically illustrated an aerial and sometimes obscure view of the homeowner’s property with abstract forms to define plant selection. Many designers and landscapers alike discovered a disconnect between these drawings and final product when it came to the expectations of the client.
The introduction of 3D landscape design has since surpassed the quality of flat drawings by broadening the visual scope. Not only can designers showcase their work with incredible foliage and flower detail, but can create it within a setting that replicates the owner’s home and landscape to near perfect scale. The ability to do this thus helps our clients to fully visualize what is to come.
Additionally, homeowners can even review seasonal previews to illustrate bloom cycles year round and watch a video “fly through” tour of their landscape. How cool is that?!
