One question that we get asked frequently is "why should I consider working online with Yardsie over a traditional landscape designer?" You might be interested to know that we're an office of "traditional" landscape designers, contractors, architects, horticulturists and interior designers so we have a lot of prior experience working with clients the "traditional way". We also see the challenges that come with the traditional process, which is why we're excited to be able to bring clients a more streamlined process that eliminates some of the barriers to a swift execution of a landscape design and construction project.
Times have changed, and we’re making it more accessible and affordable for you to build your dream yard, all-online.
So What is Online Landscaping?
With the help of the most advanced digital technology, we’ve developed a landscape design process that takes place all-online. No in-person meetings are needed during the design process, allowing you to get started right away, from anywhere! Wondering how this is possible? Let’s walk through the process:
1. Share your Style
Once you purchase a package, you will immediately be dropped into our design portal. To learn about your goals, inspirations, and everything in between, you will be guided through a series of questions about your property, complete a style quiz, and tell us about your goals and budget. This will allow your design team to curate a yard that really represents you.
2. Show us your Space
Get your camera ready, and snap away. After uploading photos and videos of your yard, we can see things like grading, fencing, and existing trees and structures. We will also request your properties blueprints if you have them available. These will tell us about your property lines and important dimensions. From here, the visualization process begins.
3. Que the Designers
Now onto the fun part, the designs. Our designers will build a 3D model of your yard and fill it in with features and finishes that we think you’ll love. Our online renderings are so realistic, you would think they’re real photos of your transformed yard! If curiosity is one of your personality traits, check out our Instagram to see some of our beautiful transformations!
4. Review your Renderings
We expect that you’ll have feedback, that’s why upon completion, designs are sent your way for comments and revisions. From here, your designs will be finalized and you will receive all of your documentation including; your 3D designs, 2D CAD plans, a detailed materials list, and an installation cost estimate!
5. Let the Installation Begin!
Finding a trusted contractor can be a challenge, which is why we provide you with three referrals to vetted local contractors. Not only are these contractors highly experienced, but they are also licensed and insured.
Why is Online Landscaping taking over?
Welcome to the future, where landscape design can happen anywhere, at any time!
Take a look at some of the benefits:
Wallet Friendly: Hiring trusted professionals takes the stress out of planning your perfect yard. But while a stress-free process sounds like it might come with a high price tag, we’ve streamlined the design process and passed the cost savings on to you!
Traditionally, hiring a landscape designer requires multiple in-person visits for measurements, property assessments, as well as multiple sit-down meetings for revisions. This can typically cost upwards of $4,000 - 5,000 for a mid-sized property. With a package to suit every project, choose from a basic botanical soft-scaping design, or a full landscape design for your front and/or backyard.
Personalization: Your outdoor space should be a reflection of you. From buzzing entertainment areas to serene spaces for relaxation, our designers customize each and every design to reflect your taste and lifestyle.
Collaboration: From renderings to reality, we want you to see it all happen! The Yardsie team brings you on board for the entire design process. Throughout the process you’ll have a chance to speak one-on-one with your designers to make sure that they get your final design just right!
Start to Finish Support: Beginning with consultations and ending with installations, Yardsie is by your side for a seamless experience. When your final design is complete, we supply you with everything you need to install your design with confidence. Whether you need help selecting the right contractor or you need support tracking down the right materials - we’re here to support you through the installation process too!
Online design is changing the future of landscaping, and we can’t wait for you to be a part of it!
