Why Hire a Landscape Designer?

Hiring a landscape designer offers numerous benefits for homeowners rather than the DIY approach.

Solve Complex

Design professionals understand the complexities of climate, soil, erosion, and maintenance combined with principles of design, horticulture, and construction. This provides the knowledge and experience to solve even the most intricate landscaping obstacles.


Landscape designers manage all aspects of the design and construction process, saving homeowners time, effort, and stress. They handle the logistics, coordination, and implementation of the project, allowing homeowners to sit back, relax, and enjoy the transformation of their outdoor space without the hassle of DIY efforts.

Harmonize Elements Seamlessly

Designers expertly blend various solutions to create a cohesive outdoor environment. They develop comprehensive design plans that address all aspects of the landscape, from plantings and hardscapes to irrigation, lighting, and drainage, ensuring a cohesive and integrated result.

Can landscape design improve my property’s value?

Yes, a visually appealing exterior creates a positive first impression and sets the stage for a favorable viewing of the rest of the property. Properties with professionally landscaped yards tend to sell faster and at higher prices compared to those with neglected or uninspired landscapes. A beautiful outdoor space can potentially increase your home value by up to 20 percent.

4 Key Steps in Landscape Design

The process of landscape design involves several key steps, each aimed at creating a cohesive, functional, and visually appealing outdoor space.  Here’s an overview of the typical process

1. Conducting A Site Inventory & Analysis

This involves assessing the existing conditions of the site, including measurements of the topography, samples of soil quality, analysis of drainage patterns, existing vegetation, and microclimates. This information provides valuable insights into the site’s opportunities and constraints and informs the design process.

2. Determining Your Needs

We work closely with our clients to understand their needs, preferences, lifestyle, and budgetary considerations. Together, we discuss the goals for the outdoor space, whether it’s creating a family-friendly backyard, enhancing curb appeal, or improving functionality. This allows our designers to tailor the design to meet your specific requirements and aspirations.

3. Developing Conceptual Design Plans

Once we better understand your vision, our landscape designers proceed to develop conceptual design plans. These plans include all of the details including hardscape features, plantings, outdoor structures, and lighting.

4. Drawing A Final Design Plan

After feedback and revisions, the conceptual design evolves into the final design. The final design includes details, materials, and specifications to guide the implementation of the project.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before starting a landscape design project, evaluate your property’s conditions (soil, climate, topography), desired style, functionality, maintenance needs, budget, and long-term goals to ensure a design that meets your preferences. Consider factors such as watering, pruning, weeding, fertilizing, and seasonal clean-up to create a design that fits your lifestyle.

Landscape design can promote environmental sustainability in several ways. Your designer can employ native plants, incorporate rainwater harvesting, create habitats and pollinator gardens, and use permeable paving to conserve water, reduce maintenance, and enhance water quality. Additionally, well-designed landscapes can help reduce energy consumption in buildings by providing shade, wind protection, and natural cooling effects.

Fall is the best time to plant, but we plant year round as long as the ground is not frozen or too saturated.

“Hancock Landscape did an amazing job on our patio design. They were very professional answered any questions we had and worked very diligently. The time frame from start to finish only took about 2.5 weeks, which included several days of not being able to work due to the weather. We highly recommend Hancock Landscape for any of your patio projects.”
Alena Johnson, Louisville, KY
