Do you know what a landscape architect does?
It's more than just putting plants in your garden
Having a garden is beautiful—therapeutic even. And for some who have the luxury of space, a sprawling garden is a nice addition. But did you know that you can also call a professional to help create the garden of your dreams, in the same way that you can call an architect to design your dream home? This is the task of a landscape architect. Erick Yambao, a landscape architect and the founder of landscape architectural group Plöntur, explains what a landscape architect does:
1. What exactly does a landscape architect do?
"Landscape architects do careful and calculated planning and designing of outdoor spaces. At the surface, it might look like it's all greens and aesthetics but we consider a lot of things before we design a space. We consider the users, the surrounding elements, the weather in the area, local planting, sustainability, eco systems, and a lot of things in between. We work closely with the client, architect, interior designer, and other consultants from the onset of the project until the end of construction to achieve the vision they have in mind."
