Let’s not forget how important it is to properly design your crop, farm, greenhouse, operation or your home or business.
The process of investigating and studying weather patterns, sunlight, obstructions, pests and traffic are absolutely HUGE factors when running a grow operation or even just for your home or business. The last thing anybody would want to do is spend tons of money for plants or seeds and plant them in the wrong place.
Before you plant, research. If you don’t have a background in design, it’s definitely worth the money to hire a landscape designer. A good designer will come and evaluate the land, weather and tons of other factors that the common greenthumb like me won’t even think about.
Once you have a design, you can actually visually see how things will look before you get digging and decide halfway through that you hate the way plants and irrigation is set up. That is definitely worse case scenario.
If you have a grow operation, it’s advised to have a good, trustworthy and affordable designer in your back pocket and accessible all the time for help and advice even after the plants are installed.
So look around your area and try to find some design firms. We find it’s often good to save a little money and find someone who is freelance. We love Page from Designs By Page in Oklahoma because she is super knowledgable, affordable and has a passion for plants and the environment. So, don’t waste time finding your very own landscape designer!
If you don’t have the budget to spend on a designer or artist, you can try to go to your local university and see if they have programs for students that you can get involved with.
As always, happy planting and stay close for our next tidbit of useful information.
