Choosing the right landscape architect for your project is an important decision. Just like any designer, the best landscape architect’s want to get to know you and understand your unique needs, so they can more effectively meet them. Consider the following before you meet with a landscape architect:

  1. Set your primary goal in hiring a landscape architect and define your general project scope. Talk to other family members and put together a list of what you want to achieve by working with a landscape architect.
  2. Determine what you like and dislike about your current landscaping.
  3. Identify any problem areas.
  4. Make a list of activities you want to do in your yard.
  5. Write down how you want to feel in your garden.
  6.  List any family member allergies or mobility restrictions your landscape architect needs to work with.
  7. Try to define your garden style.
  8. Collect pictures, take photographs of gardens you like and assemble technical information about your property.
  9. Create a design and construction budget for your project. Do not worry if you are uncertain. Your landscape architect will educate you about the budgets and costs associated with various landscape elements.
  10. Create a timeline for the finished project.
  11. Determine what help you will need during the construction phase. Will you engage a licensed landscape contractor or will you be doing some of the project yourself? Select a landscape architect who will guide you through the process of hiring a qualified landscape contractor who makes periodic site visits during construction and follows up when the design is complete.
