5 Common Landscape Design Service Myths

May 18, 2018 | Landscape Design

Your landscape design ultimately determines what people think when they see your home as they drive by. You want it to look fantastic, but you might not have the time to put into it that you would like. If you’re considering using a landscape design company, you’ll want to learn about common myths, so you know the truth about what to expect.

Misconception: They’re Very Expensive

The Truth: Landscape design services can be expensive if you have a huge yard and want the most extravagant design for your yard. However, in most cases, they’re not going to be as expensive as you might think. The cost will depend on a lot of different factors, so it’s at least worth getting an estimate before deciding.

Misconception: They Pick Out Everything for Your Yard

The Truth: Your designer doesn’t have to live with the yard, you do. They want you to be happy with how your landscape looks when they’re done. While they can make all of the choices for you, they don’t have to. You can make the choices for what you want in your yard and they’ll help you make sure everything looks fantastic together.

Misconception: I Don’t Really Need Them, I Can Do It Myself

The Truth: It’s possible for you to design your own landscape, but there are issues you might not know about that could make a huge difference in how the design looks at the end. Experienced designers know what to look out for to make sure an area of the yard won’t flood when it rains, or flowers will get the right amount of light they need to look amazing. They also know which plants to use to minimize water usage in the yard or how to ensure upkeep is kept to a minimum for you.

Misconception: They Make Your Landscape Look Like Everyone Else’s

The Truth: If you’re in an area with restrictions on what you can have in your yard, the landscape design company can work with that to make your home look unique yet not out of place. They won’t use the same exact design on your home as another home in your neighborhood unless, of course, you’ll want the same design. They will create a unique design for your yard to ensure it looks the way you want.

Misconception: Every Landscape Company is the Same

The Truth: Like any other company, some landscape design companies provide more services than others and some have more experience that enables them to do a better job. You’ll want to choose a design company that’s going to do a fantastic job for you and that has the expertise necessary to ensure you have the yard you want for your home.
