Embarking on a landscaping project requires going through a variety of questions. This process is not a waste of time, but rather the first step in your project. It is the first step in your project and will make your first meeting with your landscaping expert much easier. But what are the main questions to ask yourself before embarking on a landscaping project? Here are some thoughts and advice that will help you make an informed choice and feel better prepared.

What is your landscaping project?

Before asking yourself about the style or the products you should choose, you should first ask yourself about the objective of your landscaping project. Do you want a new deck for your backyard, do you want to modernize your pool area or redo your driveway? There is a wide variety of paver stones available, but it is important to know that they do not all have the same uses or the same type of maintenance.

What is your budget?

This is a question that can take a lot of thought. With the help of an expert, you will be able to evaluate the overall landscape project. Every project is different, so it's important to be well guided and to receive all the information you need to make your decision. Make sure you get a quote that best suits your needs.

What style of landscaping should I choose?

Since a landscaping project sometimes requires a large investment, it is important to choose a style that will harmonize and evolve with the property. With the help of a landscape designer, it is easier to design a plan that fits your needs and respects the style of the house. Whether you prefer the contemporary look to the rustic style or you want a more classic design, anything is possible. You just need to choose the right materials.

Which product should be prioritized?

The products selected depend on the type of landscaping project. Your expert will be able to guide you according to the technical specifications and the constraints surrounding the project. For example, the installation of large concrete slabs, which are usually less than 60mm thick, would not be recommended for a parking lot due to the weight of cars. However, this type of slab can be used very well for decks or pool surrounds. When choosing a landscape contractor, you should make sure that they are available, informed and transparent in the answers they provide. Having gone through these different avenues of thought, you should be prepared to meet your expert and ready to move from dream to reality.
