The landscaper and his great work in the garden

When a client has contacted the landscaper the first thing they should do is visit the garden. If the house is newly built or under construction, you should see the dimensions of the future garden. If it is to change the garden that already exists or improve it, the work will be simpler, although you may have to face an abandoned-looking place.

The second point is to talk with the client, determine the use that will be given to the garden, the design style, taking into account the type of building, if you have children or pets. It is important that the landscaper knows the tastes and preferences of his clients. It is very important to have all the necessary information to obtain good results in the design of the garden.

In a field notebook The landscaper will write down all the information that the client will give. At the first visit they will go with a tape measure or total station to perform a survey of the plot. The tape measure is used on the smallest grounds and the total station on those larger terrains (it is a very useful precision device).

The landscape designers will make a sketch of the plot and the buildings that are available. In this plan the measurements that will be carried out later are added, in the work called cabinet, which will allow to generate a scale plan of the place.

In this sketch you must mark where the geographical north is, if there are trees or other vegetation and how it is located. The surrounding landscape must also be targeted and any topographical accident of the terrain determined.

It's advisable perform a soil analysis to know the composition, texture and structure. So you will know what type of soil you have and if it is necessary to add a few centimeters of topsoil, which is a quality land that is acquired in bulk.
