When it comes time to remodel your pool, you want to be sure that your contractor will get the job done right. Whether you have chosen to remodel because of age, wear, or simply because the old design is beginning to look a little tired, the process will be much smoother and simpler if you work with an experienced pool remodeler. One factor that many pool owners don’t consider is whether to work with a landscape architect for their Howard County pool remodel. In today’s blog, we discuss the benefits of working with a landscape architect and how to choose the right one for your project.
Choosing a Landscape Architect for Your Howard County Pool Remodel
Why should I work with a landscape architect?
The main benefit of working with a landscape architect is that they won’t simply remodel your pool: they will consider how your pool fits into the bigger picture of your landscape and design a pool that will enhance your back yard. An experienced landscape designer will consider how to best integrate your pool into your back yard and may be able to offer insight on using elements such as plantings and lighting to give your outdoor living space a coherent and cohesive feel.
An experienced landscape architect will also ask how you intend to use your back yard and help build a design that will suit your unique needs. If you are looking to spend more time outside, they may suggest a pool house or other shaded structure that will maximize your enjoyment of the outdoors on hot and sunny days. The major benefit of working with a landscape architect will be their ability to articulate what you didn’t even know you wanted.

How should I choose a landscape architect?
When it comes to finding a contractor, a picture can say a thousand words. Ask for photos of recent projects they have completed to get a sense of their design aesthetic. Ask for references from previous clients who will be able to give you a good idea of what it’s really like to work with the landscape architect that you are considering. And thanks to the internet, it’s now easier than ever to get an idea of a landscape architect’s work without even getting on the phone. Do a little research on sites like Yelp and Angie’s List to see what previous clients have to say about their work.
