Landscape design is a term you might hear often, without knowing exactly what it is. Memphis Landscape is proud to offer landscape design as part of our services, so what does that mean for our clients?

What is landscape design?

Modern landscape design integrates a wide variety of elements in order to achieve beautiful but functional spaces for outdoor living.

As professional landscape designers, we’re able to offer a broad range of planning and design services tailored to a wide variety of client needs. Outstanding design solutions are developed in a way that will help homeowners avoid costly mistakes and unnecessary confusion.

A professional landscape designer will generally address many topics with you during your initial consultation, such as:

  • your budget
  • size of design area
  • soil conditions
  • available light conditions (sun and shade)
  • water requirements and drainage issues
  • privacy issues
  • maintenance expectations
  • irrigation
  • existing plant material
  • owner wants and needs
  • wind conditions
  • hardiness and zone
  • ease of access
  • local insects and diseases
  • owner’s style and personal design tastes

Whether you want a haven for wildlife, an educational and engaging play area for children, an exciting outdoor entertainment area, or a simple, quiet shady nook, a professional landscape design team can make your garden dreams come true while still considering all the practicalities. Our own landscape design services include retaining walls, flower bed design, arbor construction, fire pits, outdoor kitchens, and many more areas of expertise. We’re dedicated to giving you a well-designed outdoor space that incorporates balance and harmony as key ingredients.

The benefits of landscape design

The benefits of professional landscape design are many and varied! A well-designed landscape can help cut your summer and winter energy costs, protect your home from winter wind and summer sun, and help control noise and air pollution.

Having a unique, creative, and visually appealing flow throughout your garden design will increase not only the enjoyment of your home and outdoor area, but the actual square footage of valuable, usable space.

While it isn’t necessarily a primary reason for professional landscaping design, “curb appeal” will add to your property’s value. With comprehensive planning and professional installation, outdoor living areas can be an excellent investment. Studies have shown that thoughtfully developed outdoor spaces can increase the value of a home up to twenty percent, as well as speed its sale up by as much as six weeks.
