Review of Design Ideas
When a homeowner is stuck with what to do in their garden or landscape, they may turn to pictures on the
internet, buy some magazines that feature "design ideas" and often looking at what has already been done can
inspire you to adopt some of the ideas shown.
As a landscape designer myself, I do find it very useful if a client shows me pictures of things that they like
because it can tell me their preferred style and other bits of information that the client may not know how to
put into words that convey what they like or are looking to obtain. So gathering pictures (print or digitally
sent) is a good way to organize your first meeting with a landscape designer or for yourself for that matter.
For almost any kind of landscape design idea, you can simply search in Google or go to You Tube and type in the
elements or just landscape design ideas. Whether you are looking for specific ideas such as firepits, pools,
pergolas or patios, you will be presented with thousands of ideas. The one missing component however, is the
question of whether that particular design idea will fit into your overall landscape vision. How would
you place it and will it go with the other elements that you want. Ideas that are based on individual
components must fit an overall theme and objective as well as your region.

landscape for you --- just give you ideas... and that nothing compares to the training and experience of a
qualified landscape design professional.
