How to Pick the right Landscape Designer
Landscape design is an incredible investment, and one that not only pays off for you financially – it also turns your home into an outdoor paradise that you can enjoy on a regular basis.
There is no denying that landscape renovation is a great way to transform your property. But in order to renovate your landscape, you need to hire a landscape designer. In our section “Hiring a Landscape Designer” we cover many different articles on how to hire a landscaper, landscape design and landscape design architect which covers many items on the topic. In this section, we wanted to give you the right steps in how to pick the right landscape designer.
Tips On How to Pick the Right Landscape Designer
Capital Landscape has been providing comprehensive landscape design services in Roseville, Sacramento, Folsom, El Dorado Hills, and all cities around the Greater Sacramento area for over 35 years, so we have a lot of experience with customers that don’t know where to start when it comes to landscape design.
For those of you out there that have never worked with landscape designer before, the following are the most important steps for hiring a landscape designer.
Step 1: Do Your Research
There is a lot of information available about landscape designers. Look for online reviews, portfolios, BBB accreditation and more. Use multiple sources, and try your best to see what awards the company has received, if any. This will tell you a lot about the company in the local area, and the reputation the company carries.
Step 2: Get Quotes and Estimates
Your next step is to get quotes and estimates. Depending on your budget, you may find you can get more or less than you initially planned, and you can adjust accordingly based on the pricing estimates you get from designers. It’s always a good idea to know how much you’re being charged up front, because you want to make sure that you have the right amount for the project’s completion.
Step 3: Get a Design
You don’t have to jump to installation. First, you should get a custom landscape design – a draft of what will be done to your property, and how it will look upon completion. The design is incredibly important. We only work with board certified landscape architects for this reason – so that your design is created by professionals with training and degrees in the field.
Once you’ve decided on the design and you are ready to get started, you will be able to select the landscape designer that is right for you.
Moving Towards Landscape Design Installation
Often designers, like Capital Landscape, also provide landscape installation, and may even offer discounts on the contract if you choose to use their services. You don’t have to use the same company either. If you find that you like a design but you’re not satisfied with the company, you can choose to go with a different landscape installation company and use the previous design. At Capital Landscape, we have received many phone calls from customers that have a design in mind (or on paper) but would prefer to use us to turn that dream into a reality.
No matter how you decide to move forward, selecting a designer is all about doing your research and looking for competitive bids from companies you can trust.
