When it comes to exterior design, today’s landscape architects have mastered it all. From new plants and flowers to soothing water features, timeless hardscaping, and more, these experts are building, planting, and sculpting outdoor environments like never before. Whether you want to sip cocktails along side a cool and relaxing poolscape or just enjoy a magnificent view from inside your home, they’ll help you craft your ideal outdoor experience.
To get the perfect landscape, you’ll need to selecting the ideal landscape architect.
Look for a company with a comprehensive skill set that offers a comprehensive, one-stop shop approach. Whether you are creating a news landscape design from scratch or updating an existing one, your professional will need technical capability and experience to handle your project from its initial concept to its final execution. Large project or small, your landscaper will need to pay attention to every detail. The best companies will treat the renovation of a tired old patio with the same care as the installation of a meticulously conceived Tuscan outdoor kitchen, double-tiered deck and fabulous free-form pool with waterfall. If you can dream it, your design/build landscape team can make it happen.
The stress-free process will begin with an on-site meeting to evaluate your property, site conditions, design objectives, and, of course, your budget. Armed with a portfolio of prior jobs for reference, your landscape professionals will outline their strategies for working your ideas into the existing landscape. Next they will create a detailed design proposal to ensure accurate pricing and quick installation.
You can gauge the quality of a prospective landscaping company by looking for a history of awards and high level credentials. Not all firms that call themselves “design/build” can back up their claim with membership in trade groups like the EP Henry Authorized Landscaping Contractor Program. All EP Henry Authorized contractors are pre-screened professionals whose work is regularly monitored for quality assurance. Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institution (ICPI) certification is also important. ICPI provides its members with access to a wealth of expert grade resources on current landscaping information, techniques, and technology. A truly exceptional company can also use professional imaging software to provide you with a digital image of what your finished project will look like before work even begins.
