Dear Expert: Why should I hire a professional to create a landscape design for my project when I already know what I like and don’t like?
A. There are many advantages of hiring a certified professional to work with you in creating a landscape design for your yard. A good landscape designer will combine their knowledge and creativity with your ideas to develop a complete, cohesive vision for your project. Having a landscape design enables you to know what specific plants are needed for your project, where they go and how many you need to purchase. By taking advantage of a certified landscape designer’s expertise you will be saving yourself time and money in the long run by doing it right the first time.
