A Little Planning Can Save You Thousands of Dollars
A landscape design professional plays a critical role in your landscape project for one simple reason – it can get expensive if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing.
At Colorado Living Spaces, we do things a bit differently than other landscaping companies, starting with design fees that are relative to the complexity of your project. It’s all about accommodating your budget and maximizing your investment.
Ultimately, you need experienced landscape design pros if you want a project done right the first time. And since we’re a full-service landscape company, you won’t have to search for contractors to implement your design; you’ll be in great hands from start to finish. So, give Colorado Living Spaces a call. Located in Westminster, we serve the entire Denver metro.
Now, let’s take a look at how our landscape design process works.
Step 1 – Assessment
The first step is to take a good look at your landscape and imagine what’s possible. This is when you can share your wish list with us. We will also want to know about how you will use your space and what your preferences are as far as style, softscapes, materials and more. We’ll then share our thoughts and ideas, review your budget, and discuss all the facets that go into creating a beautiful landscape design.
During this assessment, we are trying to get an idea of what is feasible as much as what is desirable. If your job costs $35,000, we want to make sure you understand the costs before getting started and can appreciate the benefits. We will also strategize on ways to deliver the most value for your budget.
Just like improving the inside of your Denver home, you’ll be faced with choices for landscaping layouts, materials and more. By thinking through these options and allowing our experts to present you with our own perspective, you could potentially save thousands of dollars.
At Colorado Living Spaces, we love landscape design. First and foremost, we are landscape designers that also happen to do fantastic installation work. Because your home is your castle, we will take every step necessary to prevent the worst-case scenario of depleting the budget before finishing the project.
While other companies around Denver might just expect you to dig for more money, we are proactive about averting problems before they arise.
So, if you’re still in the phase of looking for the right landscape designer, be sure to ask about such a scenario. Here are a few more questions that will help guide you:
- How much are the labor costs and what does that include?
- Can the landscaper provide the client with references?
- How long have they been in the landscaping business?
- What is their experience with similar projects?
- Who will be working on this project?
- What will the landscapers need from you the client?
- Approximately how long will this project take?
- What if it goes over budget?
- Does the designer foresee any additional concerns at this time?
You’re welcome to get in touch with us for our answers to these questions and more. We look forward to getting to know you and your landscape design needs.
Step 2 – Design Presentation & Approval
In this step, we present plans based on the conversations we had during the assessment. We show you what is possible using beautiful designs and photos to give you a clear understanding of our thoughts.
Some people object to taking the time to do drawings while other landscapers do not offer this service. However, we believe that a landscaping restoration without landscape design is irresponsible and could compromise your investment. It’s like building a home addition without plans! Once you see what we’re thinking, your input is welcome. We will then fine-tune until you’re comfortable approving the plan.
Step 3 – Construction
This where the assessment and design planning come to life. It will look like a disaster for a short time, but knowing the ultimate goal and vision should help you endure the anticipation as the build happens.
We ensure that all jobs are in compliance with local building codes and properly permitted, no matter where you live in the Denver metro area. You can trust that the landscapes we build will last for the life of your home and not need to be redone in 3 years because an improvement code was missed.
As the job comes together, the excitement will build as your beautiful dreamscape comes to life. The Colorado Living Spaces team takes pride in building your landscape on budget and exactly as planned.
Step 4 – Relax!
Finally. It’s time to enjoy your outdoor space. Together, our landscape design partnership will produce the breathtaking oasis you’ve always wanted. The job will be done correctly and beautifully so that you can enjoy your backyard with family, friends and loved ones. It will be an extension of your home and the envy of your neighborhood.
