Landscape Design « The Green Zone
Every step of garden design requires the landscaper to understand and apply their minds first to general principles of shape and proportion, etc., and then to the detail of materials – both in terms of the materials utilized to construct the basic shape of the garden, and then in terms to the specific plants that will be used to dress and finish it.
Working with a scale drawing facilitates discussions around pricing firmly rooted in reality rather than being based on vague concepts. This protects you as there is no opportunity for the contractor to cut corners or make compromises at the time of installation because space and materials have not been properly planned.
