The Benefits of Computer Aided Landscape Design
When our Macomb County clients come to us looking for a new landscape design or paver surface, they are often surprised that our most reliable and relied on tool is the computer. Computers are essential pieces of equipment for just about any industry that we can think of. Landscaping and landscape design is no exception. When it comes to creating the perfect design for your southeast Michigan home, there are some definite benefits to using a computer to design your new landscape.
This is probably the biggest benefit that you gain, when we use a computer to design your landscape, hardscape or other outdoor feature. We are able to plug in the measurements from your home’s outdoor spaces, driveway or patio area, and then create features that will fit into your space, as perfectly as possible. This is a real benefit to you as the homeowner because you will know that construction of your new landscape features will have fewer hiccups, and it means that we can more accurately order materials for your project without having too much or not enough of what we need. In the end, not only does this save us time, but it also saves you money.
Once upon a time, when we didn’t use computers, your landscape design was drawn out by hand, and if you didn’t know what you wanted, the design phase of your project could take a long time. Today, with landscape design software, we can create many different versions of your landscape, with a variety of possibilities for hardscape features, plantings and design, without much effort. The great thing about this is that we can offer you a variety of designs to start, and then work with you to create the perfect space using the features you like best. This allows us the flexibility to really get you the perfect outdoor space, without the time and effort that it once took. This is also great for your budget. You’ll spend less on design and have more for great materials!
A Virtual Experience
This is one of the things that our landscape design clients like the best. Once we have completed your design, with all of the features and materials that you want, we can create a computer generated picture of how your new space will look. This “virtual” end product really gets our clients excited about the installation phase of their project. This virtual picture is also good for our installers. It allows them to have a better vision of what the end product of a project should look like. This ensures that everyone is on the same page regarding your new landscape, so there are fewer issues during installation and more clients that are happy with their end result.
Sometimes, technology can make things more expensive. However, in the case of landscape design, technology can actually save you money. With less question about material needs, redesigns because stuff doesn’t work or fit, and fewer delays in installation, you end up saving money on both materials and labor.
