When is the Best Time to Hire a Landscape Architect?

Many homeowners wonder when is the best time to hire a landscape architect. The answer to that question is linked to a few factors. First of all, a good design starts with the siting and design of your house. If in the planning stages of building a new home, you should assemble the entire team of professionals together in the beginning of the project so the initial design is a democratic process.  This way, you can start making very important decisions from day one.

Most times a homeowner will choose to work with the architect first so decisions are made considering the home interiors before the exterior spaces. The design of your home’s interior spaces does in fact impact exterior massing, that has a direct impact on the landscaping, views, and the diversity of spaces that exist around the house. If your landscape architect is not involved in the process until after the home is being built, it becomes much harder to make desired fundamental structural changes.
