Creating your outdoor space is an exciting opportunity to put your personalized stamp on your landscape. You can plan for the custom flower and vegetable gardens you want, the outdoor living spaces, the gazebo or pergola, etc.
People typically know what they want, they’ve got a file folder full of cut out pictures from house and garden magazines, they’ve searched and researched ideas on their computers. So why is it that they don’t always end up with the great outdoors space they imagined?
Who knows what the exact answer is to those outdoor spaces. But the old adage of you won’t get where you’re going if you don’t have a good plan could be part of the answer. We can help ensure you get the space you want.
Partnering with the landscape architects and designers at Minnesota based Architectural Landscape Design will help ensure you get your perfect outdoors. The landscape design basics of a sustainable landscape will figure centrally in the plans we create with you taking into consideration all of your personal needs and desires. A sustainable landscape saves produces the best results over the years ands saves time and money.
A sustainable landscape plan is one that is functional, easy to maintain, environmentally sound, cost effective, and of course beautiful. It’s functional if it easily provides for your leisure, work, and fun. It’s easy to maintain if it was designed with an eye towards slopes, drainage, snow removal and storage, ice, and water and labor needs. It’s environmentally sound if the hardscapes and plants were selected and installed correctly. For instance if the natural stone, brick, pavers, concrete were selected and installed considering your soil makeup and conditions, slopes, and drainage. Also, the plant selections are based on the plants needs: well-drained soil, drought resistant, full sun, or partial sun is considered so you get maximum performance.
If the sum total of each of these parts: functional, easy to maintain, and environmentally sound, is met the landscape will be cost-effective and the annual maintenance costs will be lower.
