At Cedar Creek Landscaping, we’re often asked to come give a landscaping estimate for homeowners who may have attempted to perform a DIY landscape installation in the past. While we commend homeowners for attempting to handle their own landscape installation on their own, occasionally this can cause big problems. One of the most common problems we see has to do with choosing the right type and size of plants based on a variety of factors.
Importance of a Properly Scaled Landscape Design
When many homeowners attempt to spruce up their landscaping, they simply go to the store and buy a few plants that look pretty and dig a few holes and mark the task of upgrading their landscaping as complete. The problem is that this is not the approach to ensure your landscaping matches the layout of your home, or that you’ve chosen the correct plants based on available sunlight and other environmental factors. The actual landscape installation process, while occasionally complicated, is actually less important than the landscape design itself.
When you work with a licensed landscape designer like the team at Cedar Creek Landscaping you’ll know that the plants chosen both in terms of size and type will be perfect for your yard. This way you won’t have to worry with transplanting plants several years from now when you realize that what you thought was a dwarf holly bush and would only grow to about 2-3 feet high was actually a Nellie Stevens holly which can grow to be anywhere between 15-25 feet tall.
Having a landscape design before you ever put a shovel in the ground can prevent big headaches down the road. At Cedar Creek Landscaping we can provide you with a landscape design that we can complete all at once, or we can do the project in phases as your budget allows. The key to any effective landscape installation project is the initial design. Without a landscape design you’ll end up haphazardly choosing plants that may or may not be right for a certain area of your yard.
