Design is Everything
Everything great starts with great design. This is true for fashion, architecture, cars, jewelry, furniture, software, aircraft, and transit systems. This is true of great gardens, too.
Design thinking is what separates great garden design from “just OK” design. Great design is important in a garden because gardens take time to establish; it is not easy to move mature trees, for example.
If you’re like most people, a house is the largest investment you’ll make in your lifetime. Whether you’ve spent hundreds of thousands—or millions of dollars—the house and its surrounding property are part of your investment.
Having bought a house, some homeowners make no investment in their front garden or backyard other than laying some grass or sticking a few shrubs in the ground. Or they want to create a beautiful front garden and backyard themselves, but don’t know where or how to start.
At DesignMyGarden.ca, we help homeowners with garden design and landscaping consulting to increase your enjoyment of your home while you live there and to increase the resale value of your home when it’s time to sell. (And, when it’s time to sell, many homeowners invest in staging—which is really interior design—as part of many realtor agreements.)
Our garden design creates curb appeal in your front garden and a private oasis in your backyard, for you to enjoy.
Even if you're not planning to sell any time soon, landscaping can bring a recovery value of 100% to 200% at selling time, according to an article in Money Magazine.
Recent surveys have confirmed that professional landscaping and garden design provide the highest rate of return on any home improvement investment including bathroom and kitchen renovations. You can add between 10% to 15% to the selling price of your house with professional landscaping and garden design.
Our speciality at DesignMyGarden.ca is using living plants to best advantage. We focus on the special and unique plants, shrubs and trees that solicit envious comments from your neighbours, family and friends. Many landscaping companies push hardscape such as patios, decks and pools, but these do not provide the same benefits as a garden full of trees, shrubs, and flowers.
In many ways, smaller properties create unique landscaping and garden design challenges. It is much harder to create a great small garden design.
We prepare a professional landscape design or garden design that you can then have fun planting yourself. We design. You dig.™ Professional landscape design and garden design at affordable prices.
Or, you can hire a crew from our qualified landscape installation partners*.
