Time for a Change
MHI: If a homeowner is ready to redo their landscape, where should they start? What should they be prepared to tell their landscape architect?
RHP: Create a list of ideas and areas of concern. Pull out pictures from magazines and visit neighbors' yards, local gardens, and local nurseries. Then set a budget. Hopefully a landscape architect can take all of the ideas and compile them into a reasonable and budget-minded approach.
