Frequently Asked Questions
Depending on the scale of a landscape project, the design is perhaps the most important step. You wouldn’t try to construct a new house without a detailed plan, so why should your landscape project be any different? There is much more to a beautiful and functional landscaping than just throwing in a bunch of plants and turf. To have a property that is easy to maintain, functional, and reflect the personality and tastes of the client, a professional design is paramount. The design and the designing process makes sure that the job is done right the first time without complications, gives the client peace of mind, can reduce the need for unnecessary maintenance, and helps to streamline the installation. Getting a professional landscape design is one of the best investments you can make for your property.
At Brower Landscape our design process is simple. The initial step is to meet with the client and discuss their landscaping needs, how they use or plan to use their property, and discuss the aesthetics and architectural style of the home. During the designing process, the homeowner will work closely with one of our landscape designers. Together we will decide the desired purpose of the yard, what plant pallet, color pallet, or features will be included and also the landscaping style to be employed.
The cost of a landscaping design or landscape plan can vary on the scope of the project. There are several factors that go into how we charge for a design. Hardscapes, irrigation design, lighting design, outdoor kitchen or patios, retainer walls, water features, and arbors are all factors that can potentially take more planning and more design time. However, Brower Landscape, will give the cost of the design right back to the client if we are awarded the installation of the project. This benefits the client in several ways. One benefit being that the designer is the most familiar with the landscape plan or project and has more knowledge of the property and elements of the design. Remember, not all landscape contractors are designers and not all designers have knowledge of installation. Brower landscape has the experience and knowledge to design, install, and maintain. The second benefit of our design fee policy is that if you hire Brower Landscape for the design and installation of your landscape project, you get a professional design for free!
At Brower Landscape, we consider landscaping and landscape design an art. Therefore, there are several principles or elements that factor into a sophisticated and professional landscape design. The most basic of these principles are line, color, textures, and form. Lines are used in landscape design to highlight an object, to draw attention or lead the eye to a focal point such as a water feature or garden entrance. Color is one of the most used and also overly used principles in landscape design. Color can make a great visual impact on a landscape or garden. Having a sophisticated color pallet is one of the most important features of a great landscape design. Textures in plants would be considered as coarse, medium and fine. When textures are mixed in a landscape design, or contrasting with each other, it can add an extra element of interest into the landscape. Lastly, form is a very important principle in landscape design. Forms are considered three dimensional. Plants come in all different shapes and sizes. Different forms can help create a specific style of landscaping when utilized in the overall composition. Forms also play a very important role in landscape design when it comes to the scale of the house or the yard. At Brower Landscape, we combine these four principles to achieve beautiful and professional quality landscape designs.
