When designing your ideal landscape, there are many resources to help you develop ideas. Looking at other designs for inspiration can help you develop ideas. They aren’t your home, but some people need a little more.
Others can find it challenging to visualize a finalized design, whether it’s the proportions of the hardscape or how much space a patio will take up in your home. Bringing your ideas into a digital space that can be sized to your property is a helpful tool to help visualize how your landscape will flow and how much space you’ll have to enjoy.
Today we’ll go over the online tools you can use to help bring your design to life and why these tools can help you save time and money.
Online Yard Design Tools
Although there is nothing wrong with drawing your design on a sheet of graphing paper, it’s difficult to create a beautiful design by looking at a sheet of paper. Some online yard design tools can result in 3D renders and make your ideas come to life. You can benefit greatly by sharing your design with landscaping companies.
There are plenty of great design tools online. Yardzen has various design packages you can purchase, which include a design revision and fully custom design by their team.
Alternatively, if you wish to save some money, there are free, albeit more simple, tools, such as Smartdraw landscape design software.
A digital landscape design allows you to visualize the entire landscape before any actual work has taken place.
Changing your mind about some of your landscaping elements while work is being done can speed up progress. Some companies can end up charging significantly more simply because it’s now considered a change order and is outside the job description’s scope. For this reason, having a completed design can help keep workflow consistent.
MC Landscaping offers one-on-one discussions to help design your ideal landscape if you prefer working with a designer in person. Every landscaping project needs a design. Whether a doodle on the back of a napkin or a high-end 3d render, we’ll work with the homeowner to develop a beautiful design that will suit their needs and desires.
You’re Done Designing your Landscape. Now What?
Investing in a digital landscape design can save you time and money in the long run. Having a design in hand that you are satisfied with can speed up the process of beginning the work. Companies such as MC Landscaping can consider the specifics of your property, such as the property’s dimensions and specific design elements’ locations.
Having a design is also helpful after the work is complete. Knowing where everything is located can make maintenance more accessible, whether you decide to take care of your landscape or hire a company to do regular maintenance. It’ll be easier to come up with costs for labor, how frequent maintenance is required, and more.
