  • How to choose a good landscape

    designer

    Landscape designers usually combine elements

    from landscape architecture and garden design

    during their work. During the planning and design

    phase, the landscape designer takes into account the

    clients wishes to design an outdoor area that is

    inviting and fits well with the clients needs. In both

    phases, landscape designers are relied upon to

    determine the ideal plant choices for a specific soil

  • Collaboration and Communication

    A landscape designer typically works alongside a

    landscape architect and grounds maintenance

    workers. While the landscape architect focuses on

    technical matters like topography and engineering,

    the landscape designer contributes to the design

    process through her knowledge of plants and their

    ability to grow in different environments. The

    designer must also be able to communicate with the

    client and understand his expectations in order to

    incorporate them into the project. Once a project is

    completed, a landscape designer can instruct the

    grounds maintenance staff on how to care for and

    maintain the vegetation.
