Landscaping Ideas & Tips

There are several factors to consider when installing a new landscape. After all, weather patterns can change quickly–especially in Kansas City–leaving your yard and landscapes in ruin. Also, like picking new furniture or painting a bedroom, it can be difficult to know if you'll like the design until after the job is completed.

So, if you're unsure about what exactly you want or just want some ideas to get the ball rolling, here are some things to consider before meeting with a designer:

Do you prefer Formal or Natural landscaping?

What colors and how much color do you like?

If you've had or already have landscaping, have you had problems with plants in the past?

Do you have pets or children?

What is the purpose and/or goal of the landscaping?

Take a look at the neighbors' yards and note what you like or dislike.

Look at various resources and pictures on the internet. A google image search of "landscaping ideas" is perfect!

Having considered these things prior to meeting with our designer isn't mandatory by any means. It's just a guideline to help you develop ideas so that we can give you the best possible design after a consultation and walk-through of your home or business. If you have any questions, always feel free to ask. We love helping homeowners create beautiful outdoor environments!
