How much should I expect to spend on my landscaping project?
If you’re looking to design and construct a landscape from scratch, we recommend budgeting 10%-15% of your home’s total value to make sure each key component of your new landscape has been considered and financially planned for. It’s also important to remember that landscape projects usually show a 100%-%150 ROI, which means you can rest easy knowing your initial investment will pay off.
When is the best time to begin a major landscaping project?
If you’re thinking of revitalizing your home’s landscape with an upgrade or outdoor living addition, the best time of year to begin the meticulous planning stages would be during the winter. Here in Augusta, GA, the colder months means less landscape management as growth slows down until after the last frost before spring. This will give you and your landscape architect plenty of time to design an outdoor space that fits your property and home, and come spring, construction can begin so you can get outdoors sooner.
What does Sustainable Landscape Design mean?
Sustainable practices in landscape design refer to the various practices which are implemented to help aesthetically serve a residential or commercial property while also offsetting the negative environmental impact. Usually, this is accomplished by regarding water as a resource, preserving existing plants and focusing on native plants for new growth, and limiting building resources as much as possible. A landscape’s sustainability also means easier maintenance and lower resource costs for water, electricity, etc.
