In luxury landscaping, homeowners have an increasingly large variety of materials and colors to choose from for their landscaping improvements. While most traditional landscaping companies simply offer standard hardscape or softscape improvements, Groundscapes offers something especially unique: completely customizable outdoor landscaping designs that any client is able to alter or improve according to their tastes or preferences.

This is a first in luxury landscaping, but something that is already extremely popular. Let's get into some of the details:

What Is Do It Yourself Landscape Design?

Previously, Landscaping was static and inert in accommodating customer preferences. Today, DIY Landscaping is all about putting the power of design back in the hands of the client or customer. Importantly, this applies to both homeowners and commercial clients.

Groundscapes Owner Nick Heimann explains the vision behind this new concept:

DIY Landscaping, is all about personalizing and customizing the landscaping experience. It means that any commercial client or homeowner can work with a certified landscape architect to design a landscaping environment exactly according to their tastes and preferences. Our goal in popularizing this concept is to allow the owner to be more creative in designing their project: whether it is the layout of the exterorior, the different structures such as a kitchen, fire pit, or swimming pool, or the materials and colors used across the design - we want to make this process something you have control over.

At Groundscapes, DIY is available to both homeowners and commercial clients. That means architects, realtors, luxury homeowners, and business owners can all customarily have a new space designed with their color schemes, improvements, and spatial layout exactly made for their needs.

What is the Role of the Certified Landscape Architect?

Groundscapes certified landscaping architect is a trained and tested expert in landscaping design. Using cutting edge computer design programs, all DIY landscapers will be able to receive their very own design and video of their prospective landscape.

From there they will be able to customize aspects of the design that they would like to improve for one purpose or another. This may be a strictly natural outdoors environment for employees to relax, or a new patio and table concept of a restaurant. Even better, this service is available to all contractors, realtors, and building architects who would like to perfect a project they are already working on. What's not to like about it!
