It is important to start out by agreeing on a budget with your spouse. This way you can ensure that both of you will be happy with the amount being used for your landscape. Be sure to tell your landscaper your agreed upon budget so that they can have an idea of the options that are available to you. Getting professional help can be greatly beneficial because it will end up saving you time, money, and stress in the long-run.
Although you don’t need to know every detail before you reach out to a landscaping company, it is good to have a rough idea of what you do or don’t want. This way the landscaper can give you a better price estimate for what you are wanting. You can get their opinion when you schedule a bid where they can help you with additional details and features that will enhance your home. Also don’t forget that the sooner you pay your deposit, the sooner you can be scheduled to begin your landscaping!
Take pictures or do online research in order to discover what type of plants, trees, and flowers that you love. Having photos of what you do and don’t like will give your landscaper a clear idea of how you envision your dream backyard. Try to choose a variety of colors, sizes, and texture to make your yard really stand out. While researching, check whether your chosen plants can withstand the climate and conditions of St. George. Make sure that you have plans for a proper drainage system in place as you design your landscape. This will reduce the chances of potential flooding. If you ever have questions or are unsure about a decision, don’t be afraid to ask! Your landscaper will help you make the best decisions for your home.
Go out in your yard and try to visualize what you and your family will be using it for. Do you want a large grassy area for the kids to play at? How often would you use a patio to host or just lounge around? Asking yourself these questions will help you plan your yard properly. Try to incorporate various elements such as a fire pit, mini golf course, or a water feature. These can be a great addition to any family home. Adding fun features will attract your family outdoors to spend more quality time with one another.
