Landscape Design Tips for This Year

Sometimes property owners wonder if it is really worth it to hire a professional landscape design company.  Here in Calgary, the answer is yes.  Landscaping can seem straightforward but in reality it takes an expert hand and eye to combine natural features with a human-made structure and incorporate function with aesthetics.  You may do an okay job on your own but a professional will make your landscape shine.

Site

Every piece of property has its own lay of the land.  There are rises, low spots, and flat areas.  Each area receives sunlight at different times and some is totally shaded.  Understanding how to best utilize the space is a job for a professional.  Knowing which trees, shrubs, and plants to place and where they will thrive is an integral part of the landscaper’s trade.  They will also help place the artificial elements like paths, water features, seating, and decoration.  Knowing how the house or office building will fit into the scheme is all part of the skill set.

Communication

A good landscaper will keep the owner informed throughout the project.  That includes days and times for physical labor as well as knowing what to plant first and in between.  This can be complex depending on the weather and availability of products and workers.  The designer should let you know where you stand in regard to the budget and any contractors.
