LANDSCAPE FACTORS

 

When choosing a landscape design, there are multiple factors to take into consideration.

Below is a checklist of questions to consider when choosing a landscape design.

 

 

  • Do you have small children or pets that require a sizable yard? Is a fence necessary in this circumstance?

 

  • Visually, do you prefer a symetrical planting scheme or a unique custom designed planting scheme?

 

  • Do you prefer the addition of feature boulders and/or patio trees?

 

  • Do you prefer the look of blooming colorful flowers? What are your favorites or dislikes? Is garden maintenance a source of relaxation or a chore?

 

  • What would you like the focal point or visual attraction to be?

 

  • How long do you plan to own your house or business?

 

  • What is the main purpose for this landscape? Aesthetically pleasing and curb appeal for a return on your investment, or something to enjoy with your family?

 

  • How often do you entertain? How many people do you entertain at a given time?

  • Do you enjoy dining outdoors? Would you like to prepare and cook your food in an outdoor kitchen?

 

  • What have you budgeted for your project? Does your budget allow you to take on the entire project at one time or are you interested in a multi-phase installment?

 

  • Are you interested in a fire pit, fire place, breakfast bar, grill island, or a pub table?

 

  • Do you prefer the light, warm smell of smoke and crackling of dry wood of a natural fire feature? Or do you prefer the clean, smoke-free gas unit that lights on demand?

 

  • Do you want a multi-dimensional look of pillars and sitting walls for added visual effect?

 

  • Are you planning to use your landscape areas after dark? Do you need landscape lighting built in? Would you be interested in additional landscape lighting for security purposes?
