Ask the Landscaping Expert – Kirsten Hironaka
A GREAT LANDSCAPE starts with a GREAT DESIGN!
Your enthusiasm is an asset! The sooner you start planning your landscape the better. Whether you create your own “Dream Landscape” board on Pinterest, or you create journal with magazine clippings you like, I suggest that you start the planning stage as soon as possible. It helps you avoid making those quick decisions you may regret later.
Designing your landscape can be as enjoyable as designing the inside of your house and can become an extension of your home.
Having a clear, dimensioned and detailed design is important for both the home owner and the contractor. A great design will result in an outdoor living space for you to enjoy in the years to come.
If you are thinking of creating a new or renovated landscape make sure you plan with a certified landscape designer ensuring that you have maximized your outdoor potential!
At Earthlings, we have a process that moves from first meeting to concept plan, estimate and contract signing. We place just as much importance on these first steps as we do the actual landscape construction. From experience we know; in order for the landscape to turn out the way you imagined, a design is the best place to start.
