Maximizing Landscape Dollars

Landscape designers work in two basic ways: either they will simply draw up the plans or offer a complete installation package. To save money, many homeowners choose the plans-only option and will implement the plan themselves.

A homeowner who wants to maximize the landscaping budget dollars might hire the professional to design the front yard. Since the front yard offers the first impression of not only the property, but unfortunately in some cases, the first impression of its occupants, this area may be the best place to start.

Even if the home is not currently for sale, a home with a mature, professionally designed front yard will draw more favorable attention when it is to sell.
