Landscape design: ideas, plans and budgeting


You are so lucky if you have the garden or some place for creativity near the house.

I am dreaming about having the space for designing the outdoor landscape.

In this post I want to explain in several easy steps “Where should you start to design your landscape?”

Plan the landscaping design:

Step 1: Budgeting: how much you can afford for your green design?

Step 2: Differences for big and small budgets: should you choose the landscapers or self-design?

Step 3: Preparation: Space, Colors

Step 4:Preparation: Plants

Step 5:Preparation: Stones, Furniture

Let’s start creating your dream landscape.

Step 1: Budgeting: how much you can afford for your green design?

How much can you afford to start remodeling?

Usually, people think more about design than actually act to redesign.

So decide if you seriously want to have the new view from the window.

If you answered YES, then calculate your budget for the landscape beauty and go on with choosing the landscapers.

If you still say YES, but have the smaller budget and you want to try yourself, than google, google and one more time google for the ideas and plans.

If you answered NO that means you are just thinking about the new design, but not planning to do something than relax and just buy several magazines.

Step 2: Differences for big and small budgets: should you choose the landscapers or self-design?

This step is for those who already know that they want to  invest in their comfortable living.

Let’s specify if you need to pay for the help.

Are you sure you are great in landscape design?

Are you ready to spend the time for learning, testing and money for the decoration?

If you say YES, then you are really emotionally strong person and you can do it!

If you are a bit busy and the process in designing is not your king, find the local landscape designer and that’s it.

Step 3: Preparation: Space, Colors

No matter how rich you are, you need to know what you want.

You don’t need to know the details, especially if another person will design it for u.

But it’s better to imagine before starting the plan.

Go out from your house and feel how much space do you have.

Do you want more space? Do you want less?

These simple questions will lead to the answer that will make your landscape wide and large or comfortable and small place for reading.

Color is also important.

If you like some special color, you can buy flowers or exterior accessories to freshen the look of the outdoors.

Step 4: Preparation: Plants

Do you like plants? Will you treat them properly?

I like roses, but I will never find time for their treatment.

I would better plant the trees and bushes near the house.

Decide what you like and how much time you can spend for your new design after it is finished.

landscapers will easily make such design

Step 5:Preparation: Stones, Furniture

The simple way for creating the beautiful and comfortable place is buying the new furniture.

You can also buy big decorating stones.

All your desires come true when you start acting.

Good luck in landscaping!
