10 Questions to Ask a Landscape Designer

When considering working with a landscape designer, it is important to understand the range of services available and the 10 essential questions potential clients should ask before hiring a professional for the job. Landscape designers fall into three categories: design only, design-build, and full service. Design only involves a site analysis and discussion of a client's needs, a preliminary design, revisions based on your feedback, and a final detailed master plan for your garden. Design-build involves a detailed planting plan and construction document, while design-build involves overseeing plant purchase and installation. Full service involves overseeing ongoing maintenance of the garden.

The most important details are to consider the style of the designer in relation to the garden you want, check out their credentials for evidence of the training to make the vision of your garden a reality, and determine if the designer fits with you as a client. Additionally, it is important to determine what role they want to play in the design process.
