At The First Meeting
During your first meeting, you and the designer/account manager should have a dialog to determine what priorities you may have in your landscape. Your landscape professional will listen, ask, answer questions, and help to develop ideas to enhance or correct areas on your property. A second meeting may be necessary to further develop the concepts discussed or review a plan of action.
After We Meet
