Your garden is an important extension of your home and you need to maintain it just as passionately as your lounge or dining room. The very fact that your garden is outdoors does make this slightly more difficult though as the weather has a massive effect on your ability to grow plants or maintain your garden furniture.
If you’re not naturally green-fingered, achieving the perfect garden design can feel like a mountain to climb. It’s a great idea to hire a garden designer or landscape designer to help you pull together a garden design that works year-round, without excessive care and attention.
The Benefits Of Hiring A Garden Designer
To save yourself the hassle of designing a fantastic, awe-inspiring garden all by yourself, hiring a garden designer comes with a whole host of benefits.
You might have a ton of big ideas for your garden that you’ve Googled. However, are your ideas realistic? A garden designer will fully understand the costs of labour and structural changes that you want to make and will help you to create your perfect garden at an affordable price.
- Design Ideas
Let’s face it, you aren’t a gardening guru, so you might be slightly unimaginative about your design ideas. A garden designer will be able to visualise your space and give you valuable insight into how to make changes to uplift your garden and give a model, magazine-style look.
Your garden designer will pull together a conceptual design that’s perfectly in proportion with every aspect of your ideal garden drawn out in detail – even down to the flowers and plants that you’re going to choose. This helps you to visualise the final product and make changes before you go ahead with the landscaping, reducing any potential problems along the way.
- Terrain Analysis
Not every garden is suitable for every style. If you have a garden that’s on a slope, it can be difficult to work out a design that works for you. Equally, ground that’s too flat can have issues with drainage. A landscape gardener or garden designer can pinpoint exactly where you might have problems and can suggest innovative solutions to allow you to set up a stunning garden that’s practical too.
- Project Management
Getting your garden in shape, especially if you have a large space, can be a challenge. You might need professional equipment, workmen, and plans drawn up and you must make the changes in the correct order to avoid duplicating your workload. A garden designer can help you to pull your garden project together efficiently and can recommend professional workers or contractors with equipment to help you get the job done.
Typically, an established garden designer or landscape gardening expert will already have lasting relationships with reputable builders, gardeners, and businesses who hire out landscaping equipment, so you’re sure to get a great service.
