Creating A Master Landscape Design Plan
Landscape improvements will make a tremendous difference in the look, usefulness and value of your home. And what better time than now spring to consider these types of improvements! No matter what the style or size of your project or your budget, a good landscape designer will offer quality ideas to fit your lifestyle and needs.
Visualizing your landscape is easier today through the rapid advancement of 3D and CAD technology. Your project needs usually involves either a partial site plan for smaller projects or a master plan for entire back yards or front yards. Either way, they are presented in the 3D format.
Although both types can work well in different situations, creating a master landscape plan offers you several advantages. Your landscape is not just the plants, it’s made up of all parts – dining areas, pool areas, lawn areas, cooking areas and storage areas. A master plan considers all the parts of your property as a single “site” and ensures all of your landscape projects will work and fit smoothly together including the technical details such as drainage, electrical and plumbing.
Even if you only plan to complete a few improvements immediately, creating a strong overall plan early will save you significant time and money over the long term. With a master plan, you’re able to complete parts of the plan in stages over several seasons, as you are ready. You will find that with an overall plan, it is easier to set priorities, and individual projects or sections of your landscape can be done more quickly because they’re already laid out in the plan.
Improving your landscaping will dramatically affect your quality of life. Even small projects now can make a difference. And with a master plan, you have the option of tackling the later, larger improvements at your own pace.
