Visual Gardens Landscape Design
About this pro
Every designer brings a unique perspective to his work, especially contractors who design for clients. I've noticed how quickly most designers will provide input to clients, before considering all the elements in play, simply to "get the job done." Most clients don't even realize this is happening if they don't have a design background. As a designer, I have the unique opportunity to influence and encourage my clients in one direction or another. When I work with clients, I withhold my design input as long as possible and gather as much info from my clients as I can. Afterwards, I then try to understand as much as possible, why YOU gave those answers, and with couples, try and discern what you both agree on, and where you disagree. It is this initial step of questioning, listening, and consulting YOU first, that I begin with. From this point, I then start to work the magic of putting the pieces together, creating pathways, spaces that are functional, building surroundings that you will enjoy, and crafting spaces that you will love. I always present you with two initial designs, completely unique from one another, and then we begin the process over again, and I consult with my clients to understand what they like and dislike. After this final consulting face, I weave all the elements together and present you with a final design. This process has worked tremendously every time. I love the new challenges every space brings, the opportunity to meet new people and learn about what they want, and ultimately the opportunity to craft a space for them that they can truly enjoy. This is what I love about my work.

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Because technology is always changing I love to get new ideas as much as I can, I research each job as I'm working on it, pulling inspiration from others, the internet, and the local environment.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Grew up in a family that does Landscape construction and saw firsthand the good, the bad, and the ugly. Worked with other contractors, and designers, and saw how helpful it was to have a plan before you start to build. It saves thousands of dollars, for customers and contractors alike.
