    When to hire a designer?

    A landscape designer should be called in on a landscape project as early as possible. For example, on new construction consider having a meeting with the architect and landscape designer to create a powerful team to make your dreams come true.

    Sketch by Lori ScottFall and winter are good times to design your landscaping because not as much is going on in the garden, and there is more time to consider and work out a good design. Also, the “backbone” of the garden is more visible then, as many plants will be leafless and neighboring views stand out more. Landscape design can be done at any season, though, as the work is mainly done indoors, often at a desk, computer, or drafting table.
