Garden Design has Huge Value

 

The purpose of landscape design and garden design is to make your property more enjoyable and look great while improving the resale value of your house by 10% to 15%. The house and the surrounding property are not two separate parts, they are in fact, one. It is critical to incorporate your needs and wants into the design, to reflect your unique garden personality.

 

When you decorate a house, you work with furniture, carpeting, paintings, lighting, and memorabilia. In landscape design and garden design, we work with live plant material and hardscaping such as patios, decks, and walkways to create both a functional space and a pleasing view.

Here are some of the things we do to create your garden design: 
 

Site Analysis – What are the dimensions of your property;  what is your garden zone rating;  what direction does your house face;  light patterns;  what type of soil do you have;  what is the style of your house;  and are there nearby elements you are trying to hide (an unsightly shed next door, for instance).

 

Research – What are your functional needs, such as a children’s play area, a seating area, a garden pool, or a BBQ pit?  What is your preferred garden style (formal, informal, English, French, Italian, Japanese, minimalist/modern and so on);  favourite colours;  favourite or preferred plants, if any?  How much time do you have for routine garden maintenance?

 

Creative Process – We apply our artistic talents to each property. It is always helpful to have one, big over-arching idea that is incorporated into the landscape design or garden design. In some ways, a garden design for a small property can be more challenging than a landscape design for a multi-acre property.
