Hiring a landscape architect is highly advisable for homeowners building or renovating a new house, especially one with a huge garden. A professional landscaper can handle interrelated tasks ranging from creating hardscapes (like walkways, wooden bridge, decorative boulders & rocks, trellis, etc.) and softscapes (good soil and plants) to recommending outdoor furniture crafted with quality materials and suitable lighting.
Using a landscaper to design your yard can definitely up your propertys value. Most landscape professionals have a keen eye, and can ensure that various elements come together nicely or harmonize with your homes dominant architectural style. For example, a landscape expert may opt to use free-form landscape to provide visually appealing contrast to a symmetrical house facade. A professional landscaper also will not just plop down on the ground decorative hardscapes like boulders and rocks without consideration of the landscape topography and direction.
The first concept that any person designing a small garden needs to understand is that raised beds always make for a more vigorous crop. Raised beds can be constructed in virtually any shape imaginable so they are the perfect container for any small garden. For example an urban gardener who only has a condo balcony to work with could build raised bed planters in the corners of the balcony and a long narrow one straight down the front parallel to the railing. This design creates a lot of growing space without taking away much of floor space on the balcony.
