THE DESIGN PROCESS PART 1 - WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE HIRING THE DESIGNER

Are you a homeowner in need of design services but you have reservations about hiring a designer? Are you curious to know about the process of design and what it's really like to work with a designer. Well then these next 8 weeks are ripe for you.  Introducing an 8 week series called the design process. Anything and everything you need to know about hiring the RIGHT professional.  From the questions you need to ask yourself to where to find the designer and the actual process of design and so much more is what you will learn about during these 8 weeks.  Each video will be uploaded every Friday.

At the end of the 8 weeks there will be a special offer to those who watched the video series to get my landscape design checklist kit for only $2.  It's a win win for you and your budget.   Because hiring the right designer is key to getting that drought tolerant landscape that suits your every life style and won't dent your wallet.

Part 1 is all about what to know before you hire the designer.

DESIGN STORIES - YORBA LINDA CLIENTS BACKYARD INSTALLATION

To say that I like my job is a bit of an understatement.  At this point it's beyond love and more like an obsessed relationship.  I get to design landscapes and work with some really cool homeowners that are willing to trust my vision and go with it.  You hire a professional for a reason.  To do the thing that you don't have time to do.  To take the overwhelm out of the equation and create a space that suits your every life style.

In this design stories I take you to a nice size back yard in Yorba Linda.  Through DG paths, dry creek beds, a redwood deck, drought tolerant/native plants and much more you get to see what the process of installation is really like.  This project took slightly over two months to install and already only being completed a week and a half ago looks really nice.  Take a look and see the process and hopefully you will be inspired.

2017 SOUTH COAST PLAZA SPRING GARDEN SHOW

I used to participate in the spring garden show at South Coast Plaza in the past and can say that having a display garden there is a lot of work and preparation.  But it is a fun adventure especially when you get to meet and talk to perspective clients and people in general.  This year I had the privilege of making a video about the display gardens.

Each garden is pared with a retail store in that mall thus creating a beautiful marriage and giving us lots of fun, quirky and innovative design ideas.
