Do you usually look at your landscape design from inside your house? If so, think about what works and what doesn’t next time you look at your flower bed. Pay careful attention to what you see and what you don’t see. What would be an appealing addition? Would some perennials or mulch help in creating a more eye-appealing view? Take notes, and you or your landscape designer can implement these changes.
Make sure you have the right door size. Others make the common mistake of building too small doors that prevent bigger tools and equipment from being stored inside.
In simpler terms, pick a few good types of plants and repeat them throughout the landscape or garden. Repetition is also a principle of landscape design.
People have a tendency to spend too much money on the lot or building site. They don’t analyze the real cost of one building site verses another. Costs like excavation, back-fill, trenching, how far are utilities, do I need a septic or is there sewer available (how much will a septic system cost…$10,000 or $50,000), are there any protected main fees to hook up to utilities, what municipality is it in (some areas of Tucson require additional engineering that add costs), and is the land flat and easy to build on or is it steep and rocky? Some things are obvious, but some are not. A great lot, from the standpoint of spectacular views, may be difficult to build on…and difficult just means more costly.
The landscape design company contractor you select will create a design for your yard. You can include both your front yard and your backyard. You can also ask for separate estimates for each. Your budget may only allow you to do one yard at a time.
Obviously, you can only choose the perfect designs once you’ve gone over several shed designs. And that is something I strongly suggest you do. A garden shed after all does not only serve your purposes, it has to accentuate the beauty of your home as well.
Landscape architecture also takes into account aspects of design that some homeowners rarely consider until they have a problem. Your home might not be positioned properly to prevent it from retaining water during a storm. Run off from your yard could be moving right into the basement of your home without your knowledge. You will find out one day when you see puddles in the basement. In order to prevent that, a luxury landscape design architect is adept at designing a plan to make water flow away from the home. In some cases, that waters actually irrigates the yard or the garden. In other cases, it just dumps the water below the level of the basement.
Sheds are used for storing garden tools, lawn movers, gardening supplies, equipment, surplus items, outdoor projects, tillers, and even the children’s toys. There are many designs available with step-by-step instructions, videos, and even workshops to assist you in building a shed of your own.
I am enthusiastic about my yard, and I want you to be too! When you find yourself mapping out a landscape design for your yard be creative! Be different! And picture the day when you accompany some friends to your back yard and they ooh and ahh at the scene you have created. Enjoy!
