Your landscape is ultimately an extension of yourself. That is to say, it is an extension of the atmosphere that you want to permeate the entirety of your property, from the attic to the basement, from the driveway to the backyard. And because the landscape work encompasses everything around your home, it is invariably the first thing that visitors (or you yourself) will get to experience before stepping across the threshold into your garage or entryway.
If you were to cast your mind on the landscaped property of homes or businesses you admire, could you be able to describe why you like them? What about the layout of the gardens, the design of the driveway or the outdoor amenities do you respond to the most? Finding that special “something” to define your property is an organic process, born from introspection, familiarity with landscape supplies, and consultations with professional workers.
