What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. Skilled Artisans and InstallersInvesting in experienced installers is key to ensuring proper installation of a landscape plan. “The design can only get you so far,” says landscape designer and contractor Heather Sweeney of Mom’s Design Build. “You need to have a great crew behind you that can implement the design and understand what is important.” Sweeney designed this cottage-style landscape outside a home in Minneapolis. Touches like a new custom arbor and pathways made of a mix of pavers and brick prominently showcase the skill of her installation team.The decisions to repurpose materials and refinish the existing white picket fence, rather than installing a new one, helped save Sweeney’s clients’ budget without compromising style.
