The Two Questions That Will End Up Defining Your Landscape Design

The Two Questions That Will End Up Defining Your Landscape Design

There are some tough questions you’re going to want to ask yourself before settling on a landscape design.

If you’re reading this, you’re likely considering a new landscape design, redesign, or just taking on a couple of landscaping projects. That means you already realize the endless benefits of having a well-maintained and expertly-designed outdoor space, with all the bells and whistles that make it truly suitable for you. Figuring out that last bit, though—the parts of your landscape that should be tailored to whatever your preferences are—can often be the most challenging part of the whole process though. While it’s extremely rewarding, there are some tough questions you’re going to want to ask yourself before settling on a landscape design.

1. How Do You Spend Your Time Outdoors?

When it comes down to it, you never want to overspend on landscape design elements that you aren’t going to enjoy. For example, a fire pit may sound nice (and they sure are!) but if you’re not going to ever want to take the time to build a fire and enjoy one, then you may want to reconsider designing one in the first place. On the other end of the spectrum, you may not think hosting guests outdoors is all that important—that is, until you realize your home has become the de facto family party house. You now might be wishing that everyone was outside on a lovely patio and not in your living room! In either instance, the solution is simple. You have to determine what you do outside, what you wish you could do outside, and how your landscape design can facilitate those needs. 

2. What Outdoor Elements Do You Enjoy?

Beyond how you’re actually going to be utilizing an outdoor space, you want to also think about the aesthetics of it all, too. Certain kinds of trees and plants are going to be desirable to you and while not every plant is suitable for every type of climate, working alongside a landscape designer like Honeysuckle allows you to voice what you want and have an expert who can recommend options based on your preferences. Figuring out what goes in your garden should you have one is a similar process of picking your favorites then considering their real-world feasibility. Still, you can always plant something and then get rid of it later if you don’t like it, provided you allocate enough space for your garden from the get-go.
