Creating a Landscape Designed to Impress

Landscaping is a difficult task. Contrary to what most people know it involves training and formal education to get all the elements right. It is a professional practice that is regulated by legislation and requires certification for anybody who wishes to practice or operate in this business. Most professional landscapers went to school to learn the basics and spent years of apprenticeship to harness the skill and make themselves experts in their chosen practice.

Creating a landscape design involves a lot of work from conceptualization, to execution and completion. The amount of work involved is extensive even before the creation of the design. Landscape artists and engineers need to conduct an initial assessment of the location including the environmental conditions like the temperature, humidity and the quality of the soil. All this data is taken into consideration before a landscape design can even be created. The environmental conditions dictate the type of plants and accessories that can be use and what designs can be created.

After the collection of data in the pre-design phase, the landscapers now collate the information that they have and identify what resources can be used. Similar to how a painter selects the color palette for his canvass a landscaper will now work on the resources available for him or her. The landscaper will now collect photos of plants, ferns and ornamental flowers that can be used for the client to see and select. While the designer can create the designs themselves they also need to allow their clients some degree of freedom in their preferences for the design.

Once the design has been approve by the client the process now moves to another critical stage: Collection. Since the resources that will be used to carry out the design has been identified, the designers will now tap on their wide network of suppliers to put all the right pieces together and ready for the actual project. This part is difficult because some accessories and plants may need to be ordered outside the country and can take some time to be delivered. This is the time when a lot of  strings are pulled to beat the project’s timelines.

When the pieces are ready, it’s now time to complete the puzzle. The construction part is the easiest if you did all the earlier stages right and if you have the resources available. Building the design will now require the designers to get the right contractor to do the job. Some designers assist and roll their sleeves to do the work themselves. For huge projects the designers have to be present on site while the work is being done to ensure that everything goes as originally planned.

Doing all the work alone and as a civilian is a difficult and almost impossible task. This is why many experts are available and are willing to lend their services to private homeowners needing assistance with perfecting their landscape.
