My Love of Remodeling

Hello I'm Risa Lee. When my husband and I bought our first home, it was with the intention of doing some major remodeling. We liked the basic floor plan, and it was cheap, but other than that, nothing was right about the house. It took us a while to get started because neither of us had the time or the knowledge. Finally, there was a summer when he had a three-week vacation. Instead of going on a trip, we used our time and money to finally get started on our remodel. To our surprise, we both fell in love with amateur construction! We have since bought and remodeled a few other homes because we love it so much. We're in no way professionals, but please feel free to join in our love and experience in basic construction. Maybe you will learn something!


3 Ways To Take Advantage Of A Landscape Designer's Expertise

The landscape surrounding your home serves many purposes. Homeowners use their yards to express their personal sense of style, to add outdoor living space to their property, and to welcome birds and other wildlife onto their property.

The layout and design of your landscape can have a significant effect on both the usability of your outdoor space and your home's overall curb appeal. Working with a professional landscape designer will allow you to take advantage of the knowledge and expertise these individuals have when it comes to planning outdoor spaces.

1. Environmental Harmony

Landscape designers complete schooling to help them learn how to assess the environmental characteristics of a specific outdoor site. As an inexperienced layperson, you might not know how to maintain the delicate ecosystem that exists on your property.

A landscape designer will be able to come up with a conceptual design that answers your wants and needs as a homeowner while maintaining environmental harmony on your property.

2. Innovative Ideas

If you want an outdoor space that stands apart from others on your block, you should work with a landscape designer. These professionals have their finger on the pulse of the latest trends in landscaping. A landscape designer can evaluate your property and come up with innovative ideas that will add to the aesthetic and function of your yard in the future.

Most homeowners would be unable to generate these innovative ideas on their own, so relying on the expertise of a landscape designer can be a great way to achieve a unique and stylish yard.

3. Project Management

Overhauling the design of your home's landscape can be a daunting task. You will have to coordinate with many different contractors, arborists, and gardeners to install the elements you want included in your landscape design. Managing a landscaping project can take a lot of time and energy.

If you don't have room in your schedule to oversee a landscape update, opt to leave the project in the hands of a professional landscape designer. Landscape designers are equipped to manage every aspect of a landscaping project to ensure you end up with an outdoor space you love while keeping your stress levels to a minimum.

Hiring a landscape designer can be a great way to improve the appearance and function of your yard. Take advantage of the expertise a landscape designer can offer by utilizing these designers to help you breathe new life in your home's landscape.
