During the consultation your designer will conduct a thorough analysis of your property. This analysis includes noting, at a minimum, the following:
- Construction concerns/limitations, where applicable
- Existing plantings and their condition
- Sun/shade exposures
- Drainage and grading requirements
- Soil conditions
- Wind directions
In order to help you before your consultation, you may want to give some though to the following questions. Not to worry, these questions are just a guideline to get you thinking, as your designer will give you their professional ideas and material suggestions, point out things to consider, and offer feedback on your thoughts.
