Information regarding site characteristics, site usage, choice of materials, CC&R’s and Homeowners Association restrictions all need to be conveyed to our landscape designers. Communication is vital to the design process. Our landscape designers will choose the right plant material for your unique site conditions and area.
Some possible landscaping design themes are:
Desires might include: pool, water features, BBQ, lighting, low maintenance, basketball court, fire pit, lawns, masonry walls, rockwork, putting green, orchard and vegetable garden.
Some requirements: shade structures, places for pets, play area for children, drainage systems, fencing, and HOA or developer requirements.
It is always good to have an idea of how much you would like to spend on your San Diego landscape design. The recommended landscape budget is roughly 10% – 15% of the value of the home. This is a good starting point but amenities like pools, outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, outdoor kitchens and other additions will expand your landscape design budget. Hardscape items comprise a major part of landscape expenses. Using the proper materials and installing these materials correctly is very important to the value and long-term performance of your yard.
We can help you determine how much detail you will need in your landscape design. Is a conceptual plan enough or do you need construction details? While some homeowners associations need installation detail and material specification prior to approvals, others might not. Your HOA may have a specific list of approved materials and plants that we will need to address. These considerations will help determine the cost of your San Diego landscape design.
