Preparing for your Project
Getting the most out of your design takes some preparation. I can help you think about what your priorities are, but the more you know what you are after, the easier it is to get there. Here are a couple of things to consider before our meeting:
What do I want out of my new landscape? Somewhere to sit and read? A place to entertain friends? A refuge for wildlife? A place to grow my own food? An outdoor kitchen?
What do I love about my home, business, or church now? What is the best thing about where I live?
What problem to I have with my property? Are there wet spots? Areas where things won't grow? Muddy areas? Do I need a place to put a table?
How will I take care of the new garden? Do I like to garden, pull weeds, plant flowers? Will I hire someone to take care of things for me?
What am I wiling to spend on my new garden? What can I afford now? What about over the next five years?
What style of garden excites me? Collecting pictures from pinterest, houzz, or a google search can say a 1000 words about what your are looking for, and help you see what possiblities are out there. If you put together a board on pinterest or houzz you can share it with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
