For many people their garden is seen as an extension to their interior living space. In fine sunny weather a garden can be a place to unwind and relax from the stresses and strains of everyday life in a space that is full of colour, fragrant smells and sounds.
When planning out the design and layout of a garden many people opt to employ the services of a professional garden designer or landscape gardening company to help advice and bring their ideas to life.
When deciding on who is best to employ to bring your vision to life it is advisable to consider the following areas.
First and foremost you need to be looking to employ the services of a landscape gardening company who are fully experienced in their craft. This experience will have been gained over time and they’ll be able to take your thoughts and ideas and turn them into reality.
As with anything, good communication is a key consideration. From the beginning it is important to give your chosen landscape gardener a clear and concise brief in order that they may understand what it is you are looking to achieve. The landscape contractor needs to have close communication with their team as well as regular updates on progress with you.
Landscape gardeners can provide a wide range of services, however, others can specialise in only one or two areas such as turfing, patio laying, decking or planting. You will need to make sure your chosen landscape gardener can provide all services that are required and can efficiently project manage your gardens implementation.
Case Studies and Testimonials
It is important that you check out the past history of any landscape gardening company that you are considering employing. Good landscapers will have a portfolio of past work that they will be very keen to show off. Unless the company has been recommended to you it is often wise to ask to speak to previous customers and get testimonials.
