Why Hiring a Los Angeles Landscape Designer is The Only Way To Go

Anyone can plant flowers and hope they grow. The ability to design, plan, and sketch an entire landscaping project, however, takes a lot of time, effort, and specialized skill. You must be able to choose plants that accomplish the overall goal of the project and properly arrange different plant types to achieve the desired look. Issues such as water features, seating, or walking must be addressed at every stage of the project. Planning and bringing to life an entire landscaping project is a job for a Los Angeles landscape designer who not only has an eye for design, but also knows what types of plants will grow best in your area and has experience creating beautiful–yet functional–spaces.

Here are several benefits of hiring a landscape designer for your business or residential landscaping needs.

Design Ideas

Design: it’s what we do. This isn’t simply a passing phase for us. We’re artists, and your landscape is our canvas. You probably have several great ideas, and we would love to hear them. In fact, we will use your ideas to create a design that will simultaneously meet your specific landscaping needs and create an impressive work of art. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, a professional landscape designer will know how to create a beautiful space that you will be able to maintain for years to come.

Budget Creation

We understand that a budget must be made and kept. We will help you create a budget that will work for everyone involved. We are familiar with the costs of commonly used landscaping materials and will be able to give you a great initial estimate for the project.

Well-Defined Areas

A well-designed landscape needs well defined areas. You may, for example, choose to add a walking path, shaded area, seating area, and water feature. The space available greatly influences how each area is defined and how well it flows with the other neighboring areas.

Plant Types

Plants are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and functionalities. Some plants draw in creatures such as butterflies and birds while others tend to push them away. The location and function of your landscaping project will help determine which types of plants to use. A Los Angeles landscape designer will know which types of plants will thrive in your area based not only on our climate, but also on how much time and money you are willing to dedicate to the upkeep of your garden.


Your landscaping project must, above all, provide the functionality you desire. Business landscaping may require seating areas, shaded areas in which to discuss plans with your clients, or simply a lovely place to view from office windows. Residential landscaping on the other hand may require child-friendly elements and the ability for your child(ren) to learn about plants and explore the world around them, all while making your home look amazing. A Los Angeles landscape designer will be able to provide you with plans that maximize the functionality of your space in addition to making it beautiful.

Experienced Project Management

Project management is a necessity in nearly every job field, and architectural landscaping is no different. Our team of professional landscapers relies on a project manager to keep things flowing smoothly and to discuss issues with you before moving on to the next step. A project manager has the experience to see potential pitfalls in a project and alert the necessary people so they may be avoided or properly addressed before they become a negative issue.
