So your excited for spring to arrive but you aren’t sure what the first step is? Well here at Richmond’s Landscaping, we are here to tell you that a good design of your space is essential in making that first step to the outdoor living space of your dreams!

 Why do I need an Outdoor Design? 
Everything needs a design or some kind of plan to be effectively achieved. You want your space to have a good flow, to be beautiful and to be efficient in helping you enjoy the outdoors. In order to accomplish this, you need to plan how you will use the space. Do you want to host big parties,? Do you want a quiet oasis, maybe a better play area for the kids? You must first know the functionality of the space so that you can design the space to work as you want. For example, you don’t want your fire pit too close to your cooking area, or to have a lack of greenery in a space meant for relaxation and nature. There are a lot that goes in to making your outdoor space effective. Hiring a professional designer to draw up plans can help you with this and save you time and money in the long run. At Richmond’s Landscaping of Cedar Rapids, IA, we can help you plan your space to be what you want and save you money by having a set plan and budget.
