Livermore, CA Landscape Architect
Hiring a Landscape Architect in Livermore, CA for your residential project isn’t the easiest thing to do. It is much easier to find a landscape designer that isn’t a Landscape Architect. Most residential design work is done by landscape designers with minimal design training and that’s why there are many more of them. You are likely to spend over $30,000 on a landscape design project, so it doesn’t make sense to have it created by someone with limited experience and training. Why do so many landscape designers do the lion’s share of residential design? Homeowners don’t know any better.
Why should you use a Landscape Architect for your Livermore, CA landscape project?
• Landscape Architects are the only ones trained to do the entire master landscape plan, which include; conceptual layout, drainage, irrigation, planting, lighting, and landscape structures.
• Without the entire master plan a homeowner can’t get competitive bids to be able to get the best price, which can cost you many thousands of dollars.
• Detailed plans allow accountability as well as clarity for the contractor. This protects you.
• The detail that is required by the city of Livermore, CA and HOAs is beyond the training of a landscape designer. Only Landscape Architects are allowed to draw these.
• The more complex the design, the more important it is to have someone with the training to integrate all of the pieces so you get elegant design and functionality. The bigger the project the more expensive the mistakes.
