I thought I would share this colour sketch I drew for a client last week. I don't have much time to go out and consult these days. That usually picks up again in the fall for me. Designing in CAD is what's been asked by clients lately. I love both parts of my job!
Landscaping your property can increase the value of your house by as much as 15%! Realtors take note- and download this sketch to give to your clients! It's a quick way to increase their return on investment.
A little while back Janice Wells (The Weekend Telegram) talked about Landscapers and Designers in her column. She mentioned that a reader was apalled that she had to pay for someone to by and look at her property.
There are two types of services being offered here and perhaps we as an industry are not explaining ourselves very well. One service is free because the company visiting the property is really only there to estimate an installation job for you. They don't give too much advice.
The other service being offered by our industry is consulting. There is a fee because that's a big bulk of their business- giving advice, quickly sketching plans handing out materials list and plant ideas. A lot of these services are given to clients who don't need an estimate or a contractor. They want to do it themselves. Just looking for a little third party advice.
When you call a company- let them know what you are looking for and ask if that is a serivce they provide.
Print off this little sketch. Even if your house layout is not exactly like this, the plan is quite adaptable. Email me if you would like the plant list that goes along with the sketch at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have wonderful day- It looks like the sun is back!!
