Hiring a Landscape Designer? Consider these questions first:

From our friends at Houzz, a helpful article for those of you who are considering hiring a Landscape Designer. Finding the right fit and avoiding surprises is possible – if you ask the right questions up front and understand the range of services they provide. Read the advice from four professionals who discussed “10 questions” potential clients should ask before hiring a professional for the job on Houzz.

The best place to start – begin by writing out a wish list before your meeting. What are your dreaming about for your front or back landscape design? Start big, but be prepared for the list to be edited once a designers input is given. Then consider questions such as these to ask:

  • What services do you offer?
  • Can I see examples of your past work?
  • When will the garden grow in?
  • How much maintenance will it take to keep the garden looking good?
