Why would you need a blueprint for the outdoor space? A big advantage of hiring landscape designers is that they’re trained to think about landscapes as systems. They will assess your property’s problem areas as well as possibilities and create a solid plan that addresses both the big picture and exact details of how your landscape will look. They will also help you select the perfect materials, styles, textures, and colors for your landscape project. A landscape design will handle all the details, saving you time and stress.
A design helps clients reimagine how they use their outdoor space. As creatures of habit, it is difficult to use a space differently without intentionality. When our designers create a design, they use their skills to combine the aspects the client wants with their professional opinion to create a space that maximizes the client’s space. As designers, we plan ahead for the future of your outdoor space and without a design, a lack of organization can create a nightmare of outdoor living. Designs are a roadmap. Our designs are meant to be a piece of record that remains with the home for decades. Our goal is to create a game plan for the current homeowner, as well as a historical reference for future homeowners to use in the future.
Oftentimes, clients will break up their job into multiple phases. By having a design, this allows for this process to occur in the correct order for better efficiency and planning. A design that is implemented over the course of many years is only possible with a detailed outline of what is completed and what will be completed without having to backtrack or waste material.
For those who are looking for low-maintenance gardens, native plants are a great option. A landscape designer will incorporate them into your landscape design. Native plants reduce water costs, reduce chemical applications, and insects like bumble bees and butterflies flourish among them. Within a project, there are a lot of variables to consider such as maintenance and a professional designer has the knowledge and is aware of the variables to guide the client into a space that best fits them. As a client of Wellspring, our goal is to provide a streamlined process that allows the experience of new projects to be positive and enjoyable from the first design appointment to years down the road.
