Commercial Landscape Design–How Difficult Can it Be?

Commercial Landscape Design in Los Angeles – How Difficult Can it Be?

First, I would like to take a moment to thank you if we’ve ever worked together. Robinson Environment Design was named one of the top five best landscape designers by CBS Los Angeles. We owe it all to our clients who allow us to be creative and put our talents to the test. So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Now, speaking of incredible landscape design, today’s blog post is going to focus primarily on commercial landscape design in Los Angeles. All you have to do is drive through the city to see what I mean. LA is one of the most beautiful cities in the United States, in large part to the amount of work that goes into local landscaping efforts.

People who visit Los Angeles don’t usually expect to see so much greenery. They see nothing but a concrete jungle with a few palm trees on television, so that’s what they expect while driving through the city. Some parts of LA may resemble the concrete jungle, but most of the city has quite a lot of greenery.

How Difficult Can it be to Plant Plants?

You’re right. Planting a few flowers and bushes here or there isn’t difficult at all. You can dig in the dirt and plant things until your heart’s content, but will it all look good when everything has taken root and grown? A professional landscape architect knows exactly what it will look like and chooses plants that will produce the desired effect.

The commercial landscape design process often begins in a board room with the CEO and other people who make important decisions regarding the appearance of their commercial property. Ideas are shared, questions are asked, and a landscape vision is created.

That initial meeting is never where the final decisions are made. Sketches and 3D designs of proposed designs are created and then presented. Certain parts of it may pass their initial scrutiny while others are taken back to the drawing board for revisions. This process may happen multiple times before a final decision is made.

The ground work begins only when everyone is on the same page, and the contract has been signed. Everyone involved with the process must understand their next move, and report to the project manager at the end of every phase.
