Prescott and the Quad Cities area are a special place to live. Whether you live in the pines or the grassy valleys, you have the opportunity to harness and capture the beauty of that specific location.
Having the ability to spend so much of the year outdoors is a blessing. Now that spring is here, the time is just right to begin the planning process to create that outdoor living space you, your family and friends can enjoy year-round.
Landscape planning can be overwhelming. Ideas may have been cultivated over years, or you recently moved to the area and are not quite sure how to properly design and execute your plan. A complete landscape design can be a pivotal tool to bring your dreams and ideas to fruition.
Coming Up With a Plan
What does that planning process look like?
“The most exciting part of my job is meeting with clients for the first time, getting to know them, and discovering their dreams for their outdoor living space. That is step one of the design process,” says Taleb Subh, co-owner of Blue Raven Landscape + Design. “I encourage each of our clients to be just as involved as they want to be. You, as the homeowner, can help your licensed landscape contractor by sharing colors and compiling ideas from sites such as Houzz and Pinterest. I, along with our designer, Tina Woods, take the elements from the homeowner and incorporate them with our ideas and vision to create the ultimate landscape design plan.”
Taleb adds, “Sometimes our clients want a full design, and we will prioritize the total project into workable phases. The importance of having the master plan will help keep each phase organized and cohesive so the end product is a landscape that effortlessly flows.”
Designing Your Surroundings
Designing a landscape within the natural beauty of the Quad Cities area also holds a responsibility. There are many factors to consider when working on developing a property that some homeowners and contractors overlook. Drainage, fire safety, water conservation and wildlife are just a few.
“Taleb and I are incredibly passionate about landscape, form and function. Part of that passion is making sure each client not only has the ambiance and esthetic vision realized, but that their property functions well in all seasons. Firewise defensible space, proper irrigation and plant selection have to be addressed no matter what type of landscaping is being done,” says Jessica Subh, co-owner of Blue Raven Landscape + Design.
“Creating a sanctuary space for my clients — somewhere where they can let the stresses of everyday life melt away and reconnect — is the ultimate barometer of success for me,” Taleb says. “We strive to be a boutique-style landscape company that is client focused. Offering our expertise, always continuing to educate ourselves and our employees, is exciting and beyond rewarding!”
