Many gardeners think they know everything about gardening that you can possibly know. This is true of some long time gardeners, but for most of us we don't really know much at all in the scope of things. This sets limits upon how far we can go with our own projects. If you wish for that garden that everyone is talking about then you should consider hiring a garden designer to help you with the task.

Your thinking, what does a garden designer know that I wouldn't already, right? These specialists are much different then the average gardener because they specialize in what they do and know everything there is about plant life in the local area. This saves others, like yourself, from those huge mistakes that end up costing a lot of money to fix because we didn't know exactly what to do.

Avery common story that many of us have heard is about the neighbor that bought the nice little potted plant for the corner of their garden only to have it take over the year in a few years. A few years after that it has taken over the whole area and threatening the very house they live in. That neighbor could have avoided all of that hassle to begin with by hiring a professional that could have helped them avoid planting the wrong things.

You should get three things from a good garden designer, a professional that listens to your own ideas, someone with extensive knowledge about the plant life that will and will not thrive in your area, and satisfaction of a job well done when things are finished.

How great would it be to see that your garden idea is fully finished and just how you want it. All that is required is telling an expert what you want then sitting back and watching it all come together. Garden designers might also make suggestions along the way to make it even better, ones you didn't think of before.

You experience will begin with a site analysis where the designer will view the area to gather an idea of what will work and what won't. This part of the process can actually be pretty technical with all the soil samples and measurements it will consist of.

What comes next is all the planning. This is the part of the process where you get to give your own input. Your designer will make suggestions during this time as well. You should listen to everything they have to say and take in to consideration in ideas they have for your garden. Their the expert, aren't they?

Hiring a professional to design your garden will end up being the best decision you ever made. It can save you from costly mistakes and ideas that just won't turn out by giving you feedback throughout the entire process. Best of all, you don't have to do any of the work! A beautiful garden that you didn't have to work your butt off on is a great thing.
