How to prepare for your meeting with our landscape designer/estimator.
Once you have an appointment setup with our designer, there are few things that you will need to prepare for. Being prepared will help the process move along more efficient and we can then get your project scheduled for the installation.
Here are four things to have ready for your meeting:
1) Set a Landscape Budget – It is very important to know how much you want to spend so we can fit the project within your budget. The types of materials, sizes, and quantity will greatly be affected by this and we want to make sure we get the most for your money. This will also help to know if we need to complete the project in phases.
The designer will ask you about the budget, so it will be good to have this ready so we can get started on an estimate.
2) Research Designs – If you can find a design that you like, then we can transform that idea to fit your needs and your property. It is important to think about where you want it, the size, and the shape. In addition, it’s good to have an idea of the colors and textures that you prefer.
3) Make a List – You will want to make sure and write everything down before the meeting, so nothing is missed. Write down all the features that you want and where you want it. List everything that you like and it’s important to list all the things you don’t like.
4) Schedule Enough Time – You will want our designer to have a good understanding of what you expect in the project and it will be hard if you are pressed for time. It can take many hours for the meeting, design, and the estimate so we want this to be as efficient as possible.
