I am desperate for a landscape that is both beautiful and functional for our family, that will fit our current budget.

Celebrate spring by discovering your best investment to turn even the smallest space into a garden gem. Often the very first and major mistake people make is thinking that by eliminating the cost of a landscape design, they will be saving money. It's simply not so. You need to think in terms of the long-run. You wouldn't build a house without a plan would you? Without a well-planned design, the typical result is money lost to incorrectly chosen plant material, hardscape gone wrong, frustrating family disputes, or a piece-mealed yard that frequently resembles something akin to a display lot at a large retail garden store. Having an overall landscape design plan, that can be developed over time in pace with your budget, will save you money and yield pleasurable outdoor 'living' space.
