Think Like a Client - Design Like a Pro
by Michael Bernier, Michael Bernier Design
TLE-Anaheim-2024 Potential clients are more likely to say “YES” and increase their projects’ budgets when the designer/builder attentively listens to what they want and need and can enroll them in a grand vision of what their space can become.

As a landscape contractor, you already know HOW to BUILD the elements of a plan; but to truly optimize the space and delight your client, you also need to know the WHY behind every decision you make in creating a great design plan.
