Increase your project’s bottom line by understanding the 'WHY' of Good Design!
Customers are more likely to say yes and increase their projects’ budgets when the designer/builder attentively listens to what they want and need and is able to enroll them in a grand vision of what their space can become. Functional and delightful outdoor spaces don’t just magically happen, however and as a landscape contractor, you already know HOW to BUILD the elements; but to truly optimize the space and delight your client; you also need to know the WHY behind GOOD DESIGN.

2. Learn critical communication skills to gain the trust and respect of your client.
3. Utilize basic design principles to create plans that can significantly increase scope of the project.
