Good design doesn't just happen. A great design must be well thought out and coordinated. Primarily, it must fulfill a client's desires, but it must also exist in harmony with physical and environmental conditions presented by the property that is to be transformed. A considerable amount of detail goes into the creation of a great landscape design. The result is a plan that is a masterful blend of technical design and art. There is far more to landscape design than sticking various collections of plants into the ground. Ultimately, the success of a good landscape design is determined long before the first spade of dirt is turned. It is where skilled and experienced designers earn their fee.
