Introducing Realistic Landscape Design Plans And Software

landscape design plans and softwareA professional landscaper can create the backyard of your dreams. However, it can be hard to envision your new outdoor space when looking at a 2D drawing. At Landscape Solutions & Design, Inc., we want you to be completely happy with your project. That’s why we now use realistic 2D and 3D landscape design plans and software.


Landscape Drawings Are Essential But Have Some Limitations

Generally, any landscaping design project begins with a discussion of your idea and budget. From there, the landscaper will make a thorough examination of your lawn and property noting existing conditions. Also at this time, your contractor will shoot grade and take accurate measurements in order to create an accurate landscape design.

After this preliminary work, the landscaper will present you with a design of your project. Typically, most landscape contractors show you the design as a 2D drawing on paper. Most likely, it will be a bubble or plot plan. These flat drawings will give you the dimensions along with the layout of your outdoor space.

While 2D drawings are traditional, they don’t give you a realistic picture of your finished project. Most design drawings show a single, aerial viewpoint. Unfortunately, many homeowners have trouble visualizing the finished project from a 2D drawing. Hence, the opportunity for misunderstanding exists. This can leave you with a less than satisfying experience.

Our Landscape Design Plans And Software Can Show Your Project in 3D

On the other hand, a 3D version of your project gives you a realistic view of your house and property and your finished project. You won’t have to rely on your imagination to picture your new outdoor kitchen, fireplace, paver patio, cabana, pool or other outdoor living spaces. Instead, you’ll see the exact materials and colors being proposed that we plan to use on your landscape  project. Moreover, it will also provide you with a precise and very detailed layout of your landscape project.

Our 3D rendering will let you experience the depth and dimensions of your design. You’ll be able to see the textures, colors, and how the entire design connects with your home. Additionally, if there’s something you’re not happy with, we can easily adjust your design. Moreover, you’ll be able to see how the change affects the finished look.

FAQs Regarding Landscape Design

Undertaking a renovation of your yard is a big project. Hence, you’ll have many questions about the process. Here, we’ve answered some of our most commonly asked questions. If you have others, please call us at 336-442-0160 and we’ll be happy to help you.

How Do I Find A Reputable Landscape Designer?

Certainly, choosing the right landscaper can create a stunning look and increase the value of your home. However, picking an unsuitable one will leave you frustrated and angry.

So, how can you choose a trustworthy and reliable contractor? First, ask your friends, neighbors, family members, and co-workers for suggestions. Next, follow up with these suggestions by viewing their websites, social media profiles, and directories.

Furthermore, it’s important to meet with the landscaper to make sure you feel comfortable. The contractor should exhibit good communication skills with an understanding of your needs.

At Landscape Solutions, our first priority is your complete satisfaction. Moreover, our owner, Kostas Menegakis, loves interacting with his customers. Perhaps that’s why the majority of our business comes from referrals. Additionally, no detail is too small in our quest to ensure your project surpasses your expectations.

Can I Show You A Picture Of Exactly What I Want?

Undoubtedly, photos from other landscape projects are a great starting point. However, we must also consider the uniqueness of your yard. Thus, we’ll take your ideas incorporating them into a design perfect for your yard.

For example, a slope or grading issue can cause erosion. Of course, we’d have to fix this concern first. Moreover, we have to consider the size of your yard. The picture you present may overwhelm your yard giving it an overcrowded feel. Or, your home may dwarf your proposed outdoor space.

Additionally, we need to consider the architectural style of your home and the design. Elements shall flow seamlessly without a jarring effect.

Finally, if we include plants in your desired design, we need to consider your climate zone, soil, and sunlight/shade. The pretty flowers in your photo may not thrive in your weather conditions. Or perhaps their color will clash with the hue of your home.

Ultimately, we want to provide a solution that you’ll love. Our goal is to design an outdoor space that is functional and beautiful.

What Will My Project Cost?

Our unique designs and the distinctive characteristics of your yard make it impossible to give you a generalized price. However, we do offer free consultations for every project. During your appointment, we’ll discuss your needs and budget. After your consultation, we can give you a detailed estimate for your particular project.

How Long Will It Take To Build My New Space?

Similar to price, the time frame has many variables. When you work with us, we’ll give you a projected timeline and tentative completion date.

However, we do our best to give our clients an idea of what to expect.
