Why is a landscape design drawing so important?

Every job site is different and every client has different likes and needs. It is important that the landscape contractor is able to achieve the clients' landscaping goals by listening to the clients' needs, and contributing their own ideas and incorporating changes on paper. The landscape design should satisfy or exceed expectations.

Whether simple or complex, a design drawing should be viewed as a tool to plan responsibly, enhance a property and add an outdoor extension to the outdoor living space. A landscape design serves as a tool to the landscape contractor to produce an accurate landscape quotation for the project. It allows both the client and the landscape contractor to establish phases of installation to ensure completing the project in a logical order.
