Checklist for Planning Your Landscape Design

If you have decided to give your yard a renovation with a new landscape design, you have many decisions to make. While you can hire a professional to complete the design, they will need some input from you to determine the best look and style for your yard. Before you begin planning your landscape design or hire a professional, here are some factors to consider, ensuring you get the best look for your home.

Are You Planning to Stay in Your Home?

A landscape design for your permanent home may be different than a design for a home you will most likely sell in a few years. A more personalized approach can be used for a long-term home.

Will Trees or Structures Need Removal?

Planning for excavation needs can take more time – make sure to discuss tree removal and other major changes that will need to be done prior to the landscape installation.

Will Drainage or Irrigation Need to be Installed?

If you have erosion or drainage issue, or you will need irrigation, this should be done before the rest of the landscape installation.

Do You Want Hardscapes?

Plants and soil can be quickly installed; hardscapes can require more time. If you are considering adding a retaining wall, patio, pond or other hardscape features, this is important to discuss with your landscaper. You will want a professional that offers both softscape and hardscape, as well as landscape design.

The best way to ensure you get the landscape design you want is to carefully plan your design with your landscape professional. Make sure to go over these factors and other design specifications with your landscape designer to help streamline the process.
