I've never worked with a landscape professional before, and I'm learning A LOT! For example, before any planting or digging, you'll usually have three meetings with your landscape architect consultant. During the first meeting, you'll talk about current conditions, what you like, what's important to you in terms of color, shapes, use, accessibility, shade etc., and what you don't like. Nancy also did a complete site assessment during her first visit.
In the second meeting, she'll come with a draft plan to get your feedback. And in the third meeting, you'll wait with baited breath to see her final plans. More to come!
