Choosing the Perfect Landscape Design Package for Your Home: A Guide

You're ready to kick off your yard project, but navigating where to begin can feel overwhelming. Don't worry, you're not alone! We receive countless DMs and emails from homeowners in the same boat.

A crucial first step in any successful yard project is the design phase. At Fredrickson Landscape we offer two distinct design packages tailored to suit your unique needs: the Landscape Plan and On-Site Design. However, it's important to note that not everyone qualifies for our On-Site Design package.

So, how do you determine which package is the best fit for you? Let's explore four key questions to help you make that decision:

1. Interested in Hardscape Elements?

Are you eyeing features like patios, walkways, or retaining walls? If so, you'll need a comprehensive landscape plan to ensure these elements are seamlessly integrated into your landscape. Hardscape elements serve as the foundational "bones" of your yard, providing structure and defining its layout. Without a well-thought-out plan, the result may lack cohesion and functionality.

2. HOA Regulations and Guidelines?

Do you live in a community governed by HOA regulations? If the answer is yes, it's essential to consider these guidelines when planning your landscape. Most HOAs require approval of landscaping plans before any work can begin. By opting for a Landscape Plan package, you'll have a detailed blueprint to present to your HOA, streamlining the approval process.

3. Happy with Current Layout but want to Enhance Existing Planter Beds?

Are you content with the existing layout of your outdoor space and focused primarily on enhancing planter beds and materials, i.e., softscape? In this case, our On-Site Design package may be the ideal choice for you. With a lower upfront cost and flexible hourly rates, this package offers hands-on guidance to elevate the aesthetic appeal of your yard.

4. Visual Person in Need of Paper Documentation?

Do you prefer visualizing your ideas on paper before execution?

Whether you're envisioning softscape enhancements or a combination of hardscape and softscape elements, a detailed Landscape Plan provides the clarity you need. With visual aids and a structured approach, you'll gain a clear vision of your dream yard before breaking ground.
