1. What will the process for my landscape project look like?

Landscape projects involve multiple steps, and you’ll want to know what to expect so there aren’t any surprises. Because of this, you’ll always want to ask what the process for your project will look like at your landscape design consultation. Pros can give you an idea of what to expect, starting with choosing the materials, plants, colors, and anything else you want. The prep work usually takes place after that, then comes the installation. While it depends on your landscape project, demolition may occur during installation, so you should expect a bit of a mess. However, it’ll look beautiful once it’s complete, and the company will perform a final walkthrough to ensure you’re happy with the results.


2. Can I see examples of your previous landscape design renderings?

You want to choose a landscaping company whose work aligns with your vision for the project, so you should always ask to see examples of their previous design renderings during your consultation. Seeing their other landscape designs will give you a clear understanding of their work, so you can feel comfortable that they’ll create something that suits your specific preferences and needs. Plus, it may spark new ideas for your project and allow you to see how it could look!

Some landscaping companies can create 2D or 3D design renderings of your project, depending on which will best help you envision how it’ll look.


3. How will you help ensure this landscape project stays within my budget?

Your budget plays a tremendous role in your landscape project, so during your design consultation, you should always ask them how they’ll help ensure it stays within what you’re willing to spend. They’re experts in their field and know the cost of everything, so they can offer options, ideas, and materials within your budget while still satisfying your aesthetic and functional needs.


4. Can you help me choose landscaping features that match my maintenance tolerance?

During a landscape design consultation, you and the landscaping company will discuss your project in depth so they can understand what you want from it. However, you may not know what landscaping features fit your maintenance tolerance, so you should always ask them whether they can help you choose. After all, if you hate gardening, you don’t want to add plants that require consistent care and attention. Once the pros know how much maintenance you’re willing to tolerate once the project is complete, they’ll suggest the plants and other landscaping features that will best suit you. That way, you can enjoy your new landscape rather than dread it!
